This is a list of denizens of #xkcd. Anyone can be added provided they are in #xkcd either frequently or memorably. Don't screw up anyone else's stuff, and if you provide too little actual info your entry may be removed. [citation needed]

Here also is a visual map curated by Froward. To add yourself, pm froward from a registered & identified nick. Please be 18 (or 21 in the US). If you would like to have a custom map icon or extra information in Description/Contact field, say so in your PM.

READ THIS

If you add a long answer in a column where you're supposed to put a short piece of text, and it makes that column wide when it used to be narrow, it will make the table too big for browser windows. Ages should be numbers, gender should be a single character, everything in the 'links' column should be single short words, etc. If they are not, find the person whose entry is widening it most and fix it by editing or deleting their entry.


If you add yourself to this list, please register your nick first! All images must be uploaded (see "upload file" to the left) to be used on this page (you cannot use an off-site image). Any questions can be directed to joannac (talk page or irc)

Sense of "to steal" is from 1869, probably from earlier slang sense of "to catch, take unawares, arrest" (1622). Nick of time is first attested 1643, possibly from an old custom of recording time as it passed by making notches on a tally stick, though the general sense of "critical moment" is older (1577) than the phrase.
