Αυτή είναι μια συλλογή από μερικές Συχνές ερωτήσεις για το Miraheze.
Αυτή η σελίδα δεν αποτελεί ένα έγγραφο πολιτικής, αλλά ένα εισαγωγικό οδηγό. Γίνονται αναφορές, όμως, σε κάποια που είναι όντως έγγραφα πολιτικής, όπως για παράδειγμα η Πολιτική Αδράνειας. Αναφερθείτε σε αυτά τα συγκεκριμένα έγγραφα για να δείτε ποιες είναι όντως οι πολιτικές αυτές.
Τι είναι αυτός ο τόπος;
Welcome to Miraheze! Miraheze is a wiki farm which means that we host a number of wikis on all topics. While we do host many wikis, please note that we don't officially operate them. If you have questions regarding local policies on a wiki, please reach out to a local wiki administrator.
Miraheze uses MediaWiki, the same software that powers Wikipedia, which lets several people edit the same page, supports highlighting, illustrations, and special effects, and retains a copy of every page at every point in the past, which can be copied from or can replace the current copy.
We have a commitment to our users which has been the same for over 7 years. Check out our main page for more information.
Ποια είναι αυτά τα άτομα;
Unlike many companies and projects, Miraheze doesn't officially have "staff" who run the service. Instead, Miraheze is run by a group of volunteers who manage the day-to-day operations of the farm. Below are a few important ones:
- Stewards - Stewards are the highest-ranking users in a community role. They are responsible for matters concerning the global community as well as any global wiki actions. For instance, disruptive behavior on a wiki that cannot be resolved sufficiently by local administrative action there can be referred to Stewards. You can contact them at the Stewards' noticeboard.
- System administrators - System administrators are responsible for the technical functioning of Miraheze and making sure everything is working as intended.
- Board of Directors - The Board of Directors is the governing body of Miraheze Limited. Currently, it maintains full financial, decision, and goal making authority for the company. There are currently 3 directors.
- Meta Administrators - Meta Administrators are responsible for matters involving this wiki, Miraheze Meta. Meta administrators are only in charge of this wiki.
Τι είναι αυτά τα wikis;
Miraheze hosts all types of wikis, from tight-knit small communities to big fan-bases and collaborative projects, we host it all, as long as it meets our Content Policy.
There are currently 8263 hosted on Miraheze. You can see a list of some wikis at Gazetteer of wikis with an author-created thumbnail description of the wikis. Many of these wikis welcome you to read them or even make contributions. For a list of all wikis hosted on Miraheze, see Special:WikiDiscover.
Γιατί ονομάζεστε Miraheze;
When one of Miraheze's co-founders worked for the Wikimedia Foundation, some of their servers were named after stars. Two servers specifically were named
heze so mashing those names up resulted in our name, Miraheze! Mira and Heze are both stars.
As for the official pronunciation, there isn't one really. Many people pronounce Miraheze differently though general consensus as of 2022 seems to be "meer-ah-heez".
Πώς χρηματοδοτείτε τη φιλοξενία των wikis?
Miraheze is a non-profit that entirely depends on donations from people like you! We don't display ads nor are we financed by a company or a government, so we depend entirely on our generous donors. Please see Donate and Finance for more information.
Γιατί δεν έχετε διαφημίσεις;
People dislike ads, ads won't gain us more money than donations (and ads could induce people to stop donating to us), ads are a privacy leak, and ads raise the risk of pressure from the companies doing the advertising that we adjust the content on wikis. We defend our editorial independence, and that of authors working on individual wikis.

Πόσους διακομιστές έχετε και πού βρίσκονται οι διακομιστές σας;
Since January 2022, we have our own physical hardware where we host most of our servers. Our data centre which we call SCSVG is located in Stevenage, United Kingdom. Other than our own hardware, we also host cache proxy servers with OVH and ns1 (nameservers) with RamNode.
Το δικό σου wiki
Πώς μπορώ να αιτηθώ ένα wiki;
First, create an account, then go to Special:RequestWiki while logged in, and fill in the form. Please make sure to include plenty of details about your wiki so that we can approve it; a guide on how to write good wiki requests can be found here. Wikis that lack detail in their description may be declined.
Πώς μπορώ να επιβεβαιώσω ότι το wiki μου έχει δημιουργηθεί;
If you have an email attached to your account, you should get an email telling you your wiki has been created. If you don't, you should add an email to your account because if you lose your password, you'll be permanently locked out of your account. You'll also get an on-wiki notification when your wiki is created.
There are some cases where a wiki can't be created, such as when a wiki with the same name already exists, when you didn't provide enough information in your request, or when creating it is against either the Content Policy or any other Miraheze policies. In those cases, a wiki creator will inform you of that via the wiki request.
Ποια είναι η αρχική κατάσταση του νέου μου wiki;
We will put a Main Page on your wiki, with wording (in your chosen language) that is as inviting as possible, given that no wiki member has written anything real yet. We encourage you to edit this with whatever material you want a visitor to see first.
Τι γίνεται αν κάτι πάει στραβά;
Although very rare, this can sometimes happen. Stay calm! Check your request in the Farmer log to be sure the request got into the log and was serviced. The quickest (and recommended) ways to report an issue are Phabricator, IRC, Discord, but you can also leave a message on the Community noticeboard, or contact a system administrator. If you were shown an error message when you tried to view your wiki, or tried to take an action that should have been allowed, copy this information and include it in your report.
How do I transfer my wiki to Miraheze?
We have an entire page which explains how to transfer your wiki to Miraheze. Generally, you will need to send an XML dump to us, and an image dump if you also want to import images. Please check the page for more information.
Who owns a wiki?
Since the early beginnings of wiki communities, wikis have generally operated on community consensus. This was the case with WikiWikiWeb, the very first wiki and is also the case with all Wikimedia projects, including Wikipedia. As such, Miraheze takes the stance that wikis are owned by their community and operate based on community consensus. No single person owns a wiki and can act as an autocratic dictator.
Wikis should generally try to strive to take local users into consideration where possible. Where possible too, administrators and bureaucrats should be elected by the local community and local communities should pass policies based on a community vote and community consensus. Local administrators are sometimes afforded extra leverage when it comes to wiki governance. Some wikis sometimes pass policies and rules without consulting the community. While not the best, as long as the policy is not seriously challenged, it may stand. If the policy is challenged though, bureaucrats should not try to suppress the users in question but instead, the policy in question should go before a community vote for endorsement. Bureaucrats do have discretion though to ignore the challenge if they feel that the contesting was done in bad-faith or by a user trying to circumvent a long-standing rule for their benefit. If a matter is not resolved adequately, Stewards may intervene if requested by local users or administrators. Stewards will first analyse the wiki, it's approved scope and policies and will decide from there whether intervention is needed or not.
What is consensus?
Error: no text specified (help).
Consensus is defined by Wiktionary as "General agreement among the members of a given group or community, each of which exercises some discretion in decision-making and follow-up action."
Consensus is just that. When users come to an agreement on how a community should be run. Consensus isn't just counting votes though, it's about seeing who makes the best, most thoughtful argument. For example, imagine User A is nominated for adminiship. User B, C, and D vote in favour but give no reason why or just say "I like them". User E votes against and cites proof that User A has been rude in the past to other users, that they have very little experience, and that they are not very active. In weighing votes, User E's vote weighs much heavier than User B, C, and D's because they gave solid reason to back their opinion while User B, C, and D did not.
Bureaucrats are generally in charge of determining local consensus unless they are inactive, in which case a Steward may do that in their stead if requested. Bureaucrats should never try to override community consensus or suppress the will of the community because of personal opinions. There are only very limited sets of times when community consensus can be ignored, such as in extreme cases where the consensus would lead to a danger or instability in the community or where there are concerns with the voting process such as concerns of sockpuppetry, etc. In those cases, a Steward should be contacted to help. If the community is dissatisfied with the outcome of a decision, they may challenge it. If the community feels that consensus on any challenge was still interpreted wrong, they may contact Stewards who will attempt to mediate the issue.
What is Stewards' role within wikis?
Stewards are users elected by the global community at large to assist wikis with any issues that face them along with doing advanced tasks (such as deleting big pages, CheckUser, Oversight, assigning rights on wikis without bureaucrats, etc.) and acting as administrators/bureaucrats on wikis without active administrators/bureaucrats. Stewards try not to intervene locally where possible. If an issue can be resolved locally, Stewards try not to take any action and will try to leave it to local administrators. Very rarely (if ever) do Stewards get involved in mediating editorial conflicts unless the issue has escalated to a point where global policies like the Code of Conduct are being broken or where the issue has escalated to threats.
Stewards should not be the first people contacted when you have an issue on a wiki unless the issue is severe, and it breaks our global policies or where you feel you are uncomfortable raising an issue with local administrators because of fear of reprisal. If local administrators do not resolve an issue such as a conduct issue within a reasonable number of times, Stewards may be called in at the request of users.
Stewards are always expected to act in the community's best interests, after researching what the community is and how it works. They are not sole arbiters or dictators either. If there is an issue with how a Steward has assessed or interpreted an issue, please bring it to public attention on the Stewards' noticeboard. Individual Steward actions are superseded by a consensus of Stewards, and even the consensus of Stewards must be informed by the will of the global Miraheze community and the policies that users have elected.
As mentioned above, Stewards act as bureaucrats on wikis without local bureaucrats. This means that they can promote or demote administrators and bureaucrats on wikis without local bureaucrats and can do other administrative tasks. Global Sysops help Stewards do some administrative tasks related to countervandalism on all wikis.
To what degree are wikis autonomous?
Much like Wikimedia, Miraheze allows for local self-rule and autonomy. All wikis are granted autonomy to act as their local community wishes, so long as they obey all global policies. Wikis are free to elect their own leaders, establish their own policies, and more. Stewards and other global officials very rarely meddle with local affairs unless requested to or a violation of our global policies occurs. Unlike other wiki farms which may forcefully take actions that go against the will of the local community, Stewards will not do that unless there is a violation of global policies.
Πόσο ιδιωτικό είναι ένα ιδιωτικό wiki;
A private wiki can only be viewed and edited by its members. To allow someone to view and edit your wiki, please go to Special:UserRights on your wiki (not this wiki, Miraheze Meta, whose rights are only editable by local administration) and enter the name of any registered Miraheze user to put that user in the
member group on your wiki.
If you don't see the username of the person who you want to add to your wiki, that means their account doesn't exist locally. Please ask them to visit the wiki so that our login system can create a local account for them.
Under very rare circumstances, Stewards, System administrators and Trust and Safety can check private wikis. This is almost always to ensure compliance with all global policies, legal requirements, or to troubleshoot a problem on a wiki.
Γιατί μπορούν όλοι να δουν την Κύρια Σελίδα στο ιδιωτικό μου wiki;
The main page is always public, by rule. You can get around this rule by putting your main content on some other page (say, "Home"), then edit your main page to redirect it there:
Αιτήματα διαχείρισης wiki
What is ManageWiki?
ManageWiki is a special tool that lets wiki bureaucrats edit their wiki's local configuration without needing a system administrator to do it for them. It is divided into 5 sections: Core settings, additional settings, extensions and skins, permissions and namespaces. ManageWiki is a very powerful tool, so please be careful to whom you grant the right. For more information, please check the ManageWiki page.
Τι είναι αυτό το «Phabricator»;
Phabricator is a system by which wiki bureaucrats can report technical issues to system administrators or request configuration changes for configuration variables that are not in ManageWiki. Phabricator is not meant for general support requests like help with CSS, only for technical issues. For general support, check out the Help center
Phabricator is separate from MediaWiki, which is the software powering your wiki, but it is still under the control of Miraheze.
Please check out the Phabricator page for a guide on how to sign in to Phabricator. Generally, it's pretty straightforward. On the sign-in page, click the MediaWiki logo to be signed in to Miraheze.
Γιατί δεν μπορώ να κάνω τα κόλπα που μπορώ να κάνω σε άλλα wiki;
All new wikis feature an ordinary vanilla MediaWiki installation which may lack the features you're looking for. Many people have written extensions for MediaWiki which extends MediaWiki and adds new features but most of these, by default, are not enabled on new Miraheze wikis. Some popular extensions include:
- Additional functions in the MediaWiki meta-language
- Assembling lists of pages on your wiki, which can be inserted into a page
- Helpful ways of linking to additional media from other websites, such as Google Maps
- Translation of pages
- Usage of a social profile system
The page Extensions describes extensions that are pre-enabled on your wiki, extensions you can enable yourself via ManageWiki, and extensions we won't add for privacy, security, and other reasons. Check that page out to see how to request extensions not in ManageWiki.
Πώς μπορώ να αλλάξω το λογότυπο ή το favicon μου;
Please check out the ManageWiki help page for details on how to make the change.
Πώς μπορώ να αποκτήσω έναν προσαρμοσμένο τομέα (custom domain) για το wiki μου;
If you don't want your wiki to use a
miraheze.org subdomain, you can request we change the domain name to any domain you own and point to us. Please see Custom domains for more information.
Πώς μπορώ να αποκτήσω ένα αντίγραφο ασφαλείας του wiki μου;
If you are a local administrator, you can go to Special:DataDump on your wiki and request a backup.
For more details, please see Backups.
Πώς μπορώ να κάνω το wiki μου μόνο για ανάγνωση (read-only);
For making your wiki read-only from everyone (including yourself) for specific periods of time, you can enable the "ProtectSite" extension in ManageWiki.
For making it read-only to specific users/groups only, you can utilise the ManageWiki/permissions feature.
Πώς μπορώ να αφαιρέσω έναν 'γραφειοκράτη' από το wiki μου;
Bureaucrats are the highest-ranking officials of a wiki. If you wish to remove a bureaucrat, please request that on the Stewards' noticeboard. You must have a valid reason, such as abuse, resignation, or there must be consensus in the wiki to do so. The Steward will want evidence (such as specific edits) that shows you are not just asking them to take one side in a clash of personalities.
Bureaucrats can also change ManageWiki permissions to empower them to remove other bureaucrats, including you. Note that this change should not be done without community consensus. If Stewards feel a bureaucrat demotion was unjustified, they reserve the right to revert the demotion and may take local action to resolve any issues.
Μπορώ να έχω δικαιώματα Oversight ή CheckUser;
Stewards have the sole authority to delegate these rights to other users but generally speaking, the Steward body feels that it can handle all of these requests in a timely manner. CheckUser and Oversight may be locally granted following a local election that meets the requirements for Stewardship. Please see their respective pages for more information.
- If you require Oversight of an edit, please privately contact a Steward via email to stewardsmiraheze.org, Discord or IRC. DO NOT REQUEST THIS IN PUBLIC!
- Where CheckUser assistance is needed, you may request help on the Stewards' noticeboard in most cases. If you are not comfortable requesting help publicly, or you believe private information is involved which you should reveal, please contact the Stewards via the above methods.
I just enabled an extension or changed a setting but I don't think it is working, what should I do?
Please try turning the extension off and on again or re-saving the configuration change and then wait a few minutes. If you are still having an issue, please ask for help on Phabricator and we will try to get it working as soon as possible.
How do I change my wikis license?
To change your wikis license, you must go to Special:ManageWiki/settings and switch to the editing section. There, look for Content Licensing, click the dropdown menu below it, and select the license you want.
If you do not see your desired license, please request it to be set on Phabricator.
How do I add infoboxes?
Your new wiki starts blank, without any templates — and infoboxes are, usually, the most important ones. See this in-depth guide about infoboxes and how to create and use them.
How do I make my wiki appear in search engines?
To make your wiki indexed by search engines, like Google, Bing, etc, you'll need to register a search console on such engine, then set up a meta tag on your wiki. For more information see this guide.
Πώς κλείνει ένα wiki;
A wiki closes (becomes inactive) when you go to
Special:ManageWiki and tick the Closed button. It is reopened when you return to
Special:ManageWiki and uncheck this button.
A wiki is also automatically after a period of inactivity, as specified by the Dormancy Policy. Read the actual policy document rather than relying on this summary. The Dormancy Policy went into effect on 5 January 2016 and applies to all wikis.
If you have perused a closed wiki and believe you could take it further, please go to Requests for reopening wikis.
Πώς μπορώ να μετακινήσω το wiki μου;
Exporting pages from a wiki, such as to a mirror site or to a host other than Miraheze, is the reverse of importing pages from another wiki onto your Miraheze wiki.
If your wiki consists of a small number of pages,
Special:AllPages list them. You can copy this list and paste it into the
Special:Export page to produce a content dump in XML format.
If your wiki is larger, Miraheze can provide assistance. You should request this assistance by opening a ticket on Phabricator.
If the target host does not use the MediaWiki software, the pages may require conversion into the format that the target host uses. Miraheze cannot help you with that.
Πού μπορώ να βρω τη διαμόρφωσή σας;
We have a GitHub organisation where we store our Puppet configuration, extensions, MediaWiki install and other code.
The config for wikis can be found in the mw-config repository.
Γιατί δεν μπορώ να αποκτήσω πρόσβαση στον ιστότοπο χρησιμοποιώντας HTTP;
HTTP is prone to attacks and your connection can be eavesdropped by anyone who knows how to. For your safety, we use HTTPS to secure your connection between your browser and our servers.
Έχω ένα πρόβλημα με έναν χρήστη ή ένα wiki
If you've had issues with users or wikis, there are steps you can take to settle the dispute. Please try to remain civil and calm at all times. All users are bound to the Code of Conduct. No one is above it, including wiki administrators and Miraheze's own volunteers. Incivility will not be tolerated at all.
Εάν πρόκειται για χρήστη
- Talk to them
- Raise the issue to a local wiki administrator. On this wiki (Miraheze Meta) only, you can use Administrators' noticeboard.
- If there is no resolution and the problem you're facing involves violations of the Code of Conduct, please email stewardsmiraheze.org. Stewards will investigate the matter and bring a satisfactory resolution.
Εάν πρόκειται για wiki
- Please raise all local issues with local wiki administrators first.
- If there are still issues or if the issue involves a severe violation of our global policies, and you do not feel comfortable contacting the wiki's administrators, you may contact a Steward for help either on the Stewards' noticeboard or via email to stewardsmiraheze.org. If you are reporting violations of the Content Policy or other global policies, please make sure to include plenty of evidence.
Editorial disputes usually are not resolved by Stewards. Stewards will always defer editorial disputes to local administrators. Coming to Stewards attempting to get them to overturn a local decision will not work.
