Imagining the Wikipedia community: what do Wikipedia authors mean when they write about their ˜community? is a 2011 journal article by Christian Pentzold and published in new media & society XX(X) 1–18.
This article examines the way Wikipedia authors write their ˜community into being. Mobilizing concepts regarding the communicative constitution of communities, the computer-mediated conversation between editors were investigated using Grounded Theory procedures. The analysis yielded an empirically grounded theory of the users self-understanding of the Wikipedia community as ethos-action community. Hence, this study contributes to research on online community-building as it shifts the focus from structural criteria for communities to the discursive level of community formation.
