    What is SRE?

    Who do you think runs the show behind the scenes in the server room? Site Reliability Engineering (whose members are more commonly known as system administrators) does! We're a group of people who all work together to ensure Miraheze runs smoothly and that our users are satisfied. Just like everyone else, we're unpaid volunteers who love our users and always put them first!
