Wikispooks is only very occasionally reported by commercially-controlled media.


In April 2019, around 60% of pages were categorised as stubs (poor quality).[1] Tireless work by our editors has reduced this proportion although the number of pages has risen steadily. The proportion of stubs went below 50% in June 2021, 40% in May 2022 and in March 2024 it went below 1/3 for the first time. Just over 60% of our pages now have descriptions, up from around 1/3 in March 2021.

The site's lists of WEF Young Global Leaders and WEF Global Leaders for Tomorrow were the most highly trafficked pages from January through July.
