Завереничке групе се могу поделити на четири главна типа:
*'''Editor cabal''' – This type of cabal went through discussion on Wikipedia. In August 2005, a group was formed called [[WP:ESP|Esperanza]] with the idea of fellowship and strengthening [[WP:LOVE|WikiLove]].<ref>[[Wikipedia:Wikipedia_Signpost/2005-09-19/Esperanza_group|Signpost Introducing Esperanza 19/09/05]]</ref> The main concern about Esperanza was that it was bureaucratic and elitist and this was a strong concern when the group was brought to [[WP:MFD|MfD]].<ref>"This highlights a perennial and worrying problem about Esperanza: that they constantly set themselves apart. They say they give Wikipedians hope – but who has any interaction with Esperanza who isn’t Esperanzan? Why is there even a special term for someone who's in Esperanza? This organization ought to be deleted because they’re targeting new and vulnerable users, who then see everything on Wikipedia through green-tinted lenses, and it is not good. It does lead to superiority complexes, regardless of what the front page says. Esperanzans, at least the active ones, see themselves as Esperanzans first and foremost. We have to delete Esperanza for their own good, to show them what Wikipedia is like outside the wall of their sub-culture" (from the [[Wikipedia:Miscellany_for_deletion/Wikipedia:Esperanza|Esperanza MfD]])</ref> In December 2006, the group was disbanded.
*'''Joke cabal''' – Wikipedia is often accused of operating hierarchical cabals which most editors would not know the existence of. To satirize the theory a number of editors formed joke cabals. Some examples are [[WP:BRC|The Bathrobe Cabal]], [[WP:Rouge_admin|The Rouge Admin Cabal]] and [[User:Ryulong/Penguin_Cabal|The Penguin Cabal]]. They can offer light relief to editors especially after periods of heavy editing.
