What is it?

A WikiGnome is a person who performs small edits on a wiki to continually improve its overall quality.
(A WikiGnome is also often known as a WikiGardener)

WikiGnomes are important to the success of a wiki because their edits increase the value of everyone else's content, such as:

  • Cosmetic editing to keep the wiki from being overrun with "weeds" (typos, misspellings, poorly structured sentences and paragraphs)
  • Add or fix links to make sure relevant content is navigable within the wiki
  • Improve the flow and clarity of content improve the readability of the page
  • Setting an example for other users of how and when to use the wiki
