Miraheze celebrates seven years! 🎉
🎈 July 22, 2015 - July 22, 2022 🍰
90% of companies (including non-profits) never make it off the ground. 80% of them fizzle within the first 5 years.
Yet here we are, Miraheze has defeated the odds. Of course, we owe this all to you, our users, volunteers, and donors. Without your steadfast support, Miraheze would not be here nor would it be able to provide the services we do. When Miraheze was founded, we never envisioned that we would one day be home to 5,000 communities with over 300,000 users and 2 million unique visitors per month. From NATO to official wikis for a variety of topics to small, tight-knit communities, Miraheze hosts it all.
This past year has been anything but easy. We're sure you've seen the slowness in speed we've experienced. Obviously, this is not an experience we want to provide you. Who wants a slow wiki? No one! That's why we've been trying our hardest to improve your experience with our available resources. In February, we bought our very own servers which gives us the freedom to scale as we wish and upgrade at any time. You may have noticed that wikis load faster now but we're not done yet. With your generous donations, we are now able in the coming months to upgrade our servers even more which will hopefully improve our load times.
We've seen a tremendous amount of new communities on Miraheze and we can't feel anything other than joy. Miraheze is truly a one-of-a-kind wiki farm like none other. We are so grateful you have chosen Miraheze for your wiki hosting needs. This past year was a challenge but we look out to the future hopeful. We owe this all to our users, thank you! Here's to 7 more years of Miraheze and more!
