The roadmap to your wiki's future
The Wikidot Roadmap project gives us a sense of direction for where Wikidot is heading. It’s a way for you to show the Wikidot developers which feature you want them to implement next. This complements the weneed list at the official blog site. The Roadmap project website lets you make pledges to the development of the software. This effectively lets you buy features. It’s completely risk-free as you can withdraw your pledge at any time, even after the feature has been added!

Wikidot: profitable after 3 years
The Wikidot blog reports that Wikidot is making a growing profit. "When we launched Wikidot.com three years ago we had the vision of offering a reliable, fast, and economic way of building web sites, wikis, and social web applications. It was not clear, at the start, whether this plan would work. Today, I'm happy to be able to tell you that after almost a year of having introduced Pro accounts, Wikidot is making a modest but growing profit."

Wikidot.com database abandons spinning rust for Intel X-25 SSDs
The Wikidot.com blog reported today that "Wikidot.com's primary database sits on a RAID cluster of top-end Intel solid-state memory (SSD) drives. These are expensive but much faster than spinning rust, and much more reliable. The SSDs are Intel X25-E Extreme, one of the fastest SSD drives out there. We're seeing a 7x improvement in database response time, and a 3x improvement in page rendering time."
