Suggested donations?

Hi there! Does Miraheze have such a thing as a 'suggested donation' for services rendered like setting up custom DNS, SSL etc for Wikis and the like? Are you able to generate invoices for donations thereby 'accepted'? I realise I must sound like some kind of minimalist money launderer or something, but I'm simply trying to encourage Wiki use by small charities and community organisations. By and large they'd much rather pay a small charge for an underwritten outcome. Ftwm (talk) 09:21, 25 February 2021 (UTC)

@Ftwm: Hi! Unfortunately, I can't really give an exact number of a suggested donation. For the services you mention, like Custom domain set ups, they're done by volunteers who are not payed, as all donations go into infrastructure and other costs such as our domain, etc. I can however refer you to read this section on the fundraising page which may help you with your question. What I can say is that every donation (no matter how small) helps us and is appreciated! :) Reception123 (talk) (C) 09:42, 25 February 2021 (UTC)
Having had a look on GoFundMe, £20 seems reasonable for a bit of guidance setting up FITCC’s subdomain and I’m very happy to oblige. -Mark Drayton CllrEMD (talk) 13:42, 29 March 2021 (UTC)
Mark, £20 would be a very generous donation. If you do decide to make a donation, the easiest way is through PayPal, but there are also other donation methods listed at Donate, if you prefer. Dmehus (talk) 13:46, 29 March 2021 (UTC)
Just a quick note, regardless of whether you decide to donate or not (though of course if you do we would really appreciate it!) we are very happy to help you with your wiki :) Reception123 (talk) (C) 13:48, 29 March 2021 (UTC)

Redirect issue

Hi Reception123,

I'm having an issue with redirect from to It was working perfectly before, but now I get 'Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead' page.

Could you please take a look and see what's causing this issue?

Thanks, --Gil Borlin (talk) 13:23, 20 March 2021 (UTC)

Gil Borlin Yeah, I get the same issue. I wonder if maybe the SSL certificate needs to be regenerated as a wildcard certificate, or maybe this can be resolved by making small changes to the certs.yaml and/or redirects.yaml files? Anyway, I'll {{ping}} Reception123 to this thread to take a look at it for you. Dmehus (talk) 15:32, 20 March 2021 (UTC)
Dmehus Reception123 Redirect from to is working now. Thank you both! Could you also add redirect from to I'm sorry I forgot to mention that in my request. Gil Borlin (talk) 15:09, 21 March 2021 (UTC)
Gil Borlin Yeah, Paladox noticed what was wrong with the certs.yaml file referenced above. Sure, I think it's a wildcard certificate, so I'll try doing the PR for you. Dmehus (talk) 15:18, 21 March 2021 (UTC)

User rights

Hello Reception123, can I have the autopatrolled right. Thank you! Olipino (talk) 16:25, 5 April 2021 (UTC)

Thank you for your request. While autopatrolled can be requested, it is commonly granted by administrators to reduce the workflow of administrators and patrollers when a user's edits no longer need patrolling. Each administrator has different criteria for granting, but notably, two of the main ones are that the user should always sign their posts with four tildes (~~~~) and be active in some way on Meta. Hope that helps. Dmehus (talk) 17:02, 5 April 2021 (UTC)
I do indeed agree that at this time it would be too early to grant you autopatrolled as you currently have less than 10 edits on Meta. If it is determined later on that your edits no longer require someone to patrol them, it will be granted. Reception123 (talk) (C) 17:09, 5 April 2021 (UTC)
Okay, thanks. Olipino (talk) 17:37, 6 April 2021 (UTC)
