Currently, MicroWiki has 26,636 articles, 134,043 pages and 23,491 registered users. In early January, MicroWiki migrated the website to a new server provider for better stability, and set up a Patreon.[3] The main page was redesigned for the first time in several years.[4] For April Fools'–an annual tradition on MicroWiki–large advertisements blocking the view of content popped up on most pages approximately every minute. Visual editor was disabled on 22 April 2021 when a glitch with visual editor was discovered. The glitch caused references to be removed while in visual editors.[5] It was later re-introduced with a update to MicroWiki.

Predictions

According to MicroWiki editor Zed, MicroWiki is predicted to reach its millionth edit by the end of the year. 2021 is the most common prediction in the Thirty-thousand Pool in which MicroWiki will reach 30,000 articles, with five users predicting so.
