Since July 2003, the Tiki community started eating its own DogFood, used only Tiki to manage the official site (not just a demo site). Tiki 1.7 ran through 4 release candidates and this has produced a great improvement in stability and usability.
During 2003-2004, tiki-forums.php started being used more & more and eventually, the Tiki forums at SourceForge were closed down.
In April 2005, the Tiki community started using dev.tikiwiki.org to manage all trackers (bugs, feature requests, etc).
In May 2005, mobile.tikiwiki.org was started to speed up development & integration of the excellent HAWHAW toolkit to make Tiki useable on cell phones, PDAs, Lynx text browsers and via VoiceXML.
In 2006, Themes & workflow community sites were launched:
http://themes.tikiwiki.org/ & http://workflow.tikiwiki.org/
In fall 2006, an internal system to get help was implemented for the documentation site: doc.tikiwiki.org. Our documentation development is full-on wikified and as good as any volunteer based open source project out there.
Mid-2007, a new informational site was launched. At the end of 2007, the Tiki calendar was put to work to plan community events
In 2007, www.wiki-translation.com was launched in an effort to participate in the development of a good system to manage the multilingual documentation at doc.tikiwiki.org.
Mid-2009, http://profiles.tikiwiki.org was launched, in conjunction with Tiki3
