Dates[edit source]

Can we please use ISO 8601/RFC 3339 dates here? As an American, I am confuse. Also they'll sort better. Vorticity (talk) 22:06, 20 September 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I agree. It's easier to read, and it sorts nicely. The dates should be in YYYY-MM-DD:
  • 2015-08-26
  • 2015-08-26
  • 2015-09-03
  • 2015-09-13

Other ways to donate money[edit source]

For people who don't want to use paypal, what other ways are there to donate money? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Rsterbal (talkcontribs)

Unfortunately, there are no others ways than PayPal currently. Reception123 (talk)(contribs) 13:03, 13 April 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I would also appreciate a way of donating without signing up for a PayPal account. How about a simple Stripe checkout? --Liam (t) 17:30, 19 October 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Liam: That is a good idea. I personally agree that its best for us to have multiple ways of payment. I will have to ask our financial manager, [[User:Labster|Labster}}. Reception123 (talk) (C) 15:06, 20 October 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I would love to see a crowfounding site added. On a wiki where "Miraheze" has page, the page could include directly the link to donate to the project, very much better than paypal, because anyone could donate. Wikipedia had a page, but it says that one of the owner requested its deletion. But why??

--PERCE-NEIGE (talk) 14:21, 17 February 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

We did have crowdfunding when we started this project, and we might do a fundraiser in the meantime. We are trying to look into new methods of donation, but the issue is some require a bank account for Miraheze which we do not have yet.

Amazing[edit source]

Are there other expenses that are missing?

How is this place so cheap to run?

The high monthly amount for RamNode is just $33.42?

I saw $12.48 for NameCheap, was that annual?

The $6.00 for the monthly backup looks cheap too.

Name renewal[edit source]

How long was the domain name renewal for?:

2016-07-10 Miraheze -$49.95 $480.49 Domain registration


That was not Miraheze's domain name. It was an attempt to buy the expiring domain name. was renewed in earlier in the year for 1 year for $12.50. John (talk) 14:27, 22 July 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Adding a currency column[edit source]

We might want to consider adding a currency column — Preceding unsigned comment added by RobertSter (talkcontribs)

Details of hosting costs[edit source]

Are the details of hosting costs published anywhere? Can we set up a page for that on Meta? --Robert Sterbal area code (412) 977-3526 12:53, 5 November 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Category:Servers has it. — revi 12:59, 5 November 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Just to point out, you were the one who started that table. Reception123 (talk) (C) 13:35, 5 November 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
please add a link to finance page that links to the Category:Servers page

replace Hosting costs with [[:Category:Servers|Hosting Costs]] Thanks! Rsterbal (talk) 18:22, 5 November 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Wrong link for Nonbinary Wiki[edit source]

Link for Nonbinary Wiki goes to a 404. Presumably, the correct link should be K599 (talk) 18:33, 26 December 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@K599: Thank you for the report. This is now  done, though I've used the Miraheze subdomain, which redirects to the custom domain so as to still use a MirahezeMagic pseudo-interwiki wikilink rather than an external link. Looks like the database name, rather than the subdomain, was used by @Owen:, so this has been  fixed. Thanks again. Dmehus (talk) 18:38, 26 December 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Domain name hosting as a income-donation stream?[edit source]

As a domain name owner I would love to be able to pay domain name hosting as a kind of donation to Miraheze who already hosts the wiki, rather then commercial hosts as I would again just forward domain name to miraheze...Any chance this can be organized sometime soon? (guess Miraheze would have to register as non-profit register. No idea if that is complicated or not in UK or internationally) --ZBlace (talk) 11:33, 5 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@ZBlace: Therefore, Miraheze is just a free hosting service (, donating to Miraheze is just a form of support to help with the maintenance of wikis. If you want a custom domain, the way is to go after other hosts to host your 'independent' wiki. And Miraheze is registered as Miraheze Limited. --YellowFrogger (Talk) 16:52, 5 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@YellowFrogger maybe I was not clear enough. Can Miraheze Limited expand its services to include being a non-commercial domain register for its own Wikis? -- ZBlace (talk) 16:55, 5 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@ZBlace: This I don't know because I'm just a regular user, but what I do know is that Miraheze can host only ( If you want to change domains, you will have to go to another one, (including free domains. I think Miraheze already pays for and would not need another one. Domain changes are performed in the phabricator Summary: Miraheze Limited already pays for their servers, the common: --YellowFrogger (Talk) 17:22, 5 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
We are not currently able to provide any domain registration services. Previous RfCs have voted against affiliated linking but we could in theory consider this if the community supported it. ~ RhinosF1 - (chat)· acc· c - (on) 17:44, 5 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@RhinosF1 OK - I am happy to work towards this. What is considered that community is supporting it? Is it RfC backing of more 50% with some kind of quorum? What could be ideal pathway to get to that? -- ZBlace (talk) 20:22, 5 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Principally the real shot at this is creating a RfC which attracts a great deal of support, a good portion more than 50% in order to make the decision all clear, as well as it being feasible without legal/technical ramifications that could compromise Miraheze and thus the idea itself. Such things would probably come up in the same discussion though. --Raidarr (talk) 21:05, 5 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Raidarr and @ALL - I am going back to this as we discussed it briefly in the last 2022 meeting...Now also thinking if this can be organized as collaboration with any international NGO that does this as partnership? That way it would not interfere with core work or community focus. Any thoughts? --ZBlace (talk) 09:44, 8 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

FY2022 link[edit source]

Typo[edit source]

Can admins fix the balance as of June 2, 2023? It should be £3514.50 not £3514.5. Silicona (talk) 10:34, 22 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I tried to fix the typo, but it is disallowed by abuse filter. Silicona (talk) 12:05, 23 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Multilingual donate link[edit source]

Can somebody change the donate link [[Donate]] with the language coded donate link '''[[Special:MyLanguage/Donate|Donate]]'''?

This makes it is similar as on the "Main page". Such link takes display language in account.

This is  Done, thanks for the suggestion. --NotAracham (talkcontribsglobal) 16:14, 18 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
In my description of this topic, a part of the suggested language coded donate link was hidden in the HTML presentation.
I give it another try and hope the HTML presentation for the suggested code is now better: '''[[<tvar name=donate>Special:MyLanguage/Donate</tvar>|Donate]]'''.
I found this in the source code of the "Main page".
@NotAracham, thanks for looking into this.
