This paper describes the results of a study of the user-generated web dictionary The platform was launched in 2007 and contains (December 2016) about 4 600 headwords (lemmas). We analyse how the content of has developed over time with particular focus on ten contributor aliases and how they have participated in the development of the dictionary. Our study displays some recurrent pattern in how different aliases work. We observe similarities in what kind of words they contribute with and the manner in which they define words. Many lemmas have in common that they are not described in traditional lexicons. Depending on contributor the articles differ in quality regarding both form and content.
