The force that resists the importation of knowledge into a wiki, with especial reference to Wikipedia.
The wikipedance of a wiki channel varies as the ratio of the effective electuremotive force to the effective current of communication.

I have wikipeditis 'cause I can't stop editing my post.
by nveselin January 21, 2006
A person who updates Wikipedia immediately after a breaking news story regardless of how mundane and/or apocryphal it may be.

Derived from Wikipedia (a Web site that allows collaborative editing of its content and structure by its users) and Pedant (a person who is excessively concerned with minor details and rules or with displaying academic learning).
You mean to tell me you were online Saturday night at midnight updating Wikipedia's Scotty Bowman entry after rumours of his impending hiring by the Toronto Maple Leafs? Man, you're not only a wikipedant, you are a loser!

A cyber disease in which a Wikipedia surfer tries to avoid Wikarpal Tunnel Syndrome by "ctrl-clicking" the blue reference links which appear as tabs within their browser, and inadvertently creates too many tabs. Symptoms include complete confusion and the reading of information with the mistaken understanding as to what topic the information pertains to.
I opened so many tabs the other day that I almost crashed my browser. I must suffer from a bad case of Wikipeditis.
