Glossary.svg This page describes a concept which is part of our glossary

A Wikigrinch is a mean-spirited Wikipedia admin who deletes images or articles from the encyclopedia without giving the contributor the oppertunity to update the image or article to meet Wikipedia standards. It may also refer to the general group-think of admins who delete articles on grounds of notability because the subject matter is outside their cultural experience.

Many Wikigrinches are proud of their grinch-ness and display badges on their home pages showing the number of articles they have deleted.
