Today, at 1.04 PM UTC, Wikidot welcomed its 500 000th registered user. We are very happy to see the growth Wikidot is experiencing — in terms of popularity, usage, features and as a business too. We see more and more interesting sites created and many vibrant communities growing, which proves our vision of creating a "wiki farm" worth its effort.

Here are some statistics showing where Wikidot is now:
