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]

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]
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]
@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]
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]

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. Reception123 (talk) (C) 15:20, 17 February 2019 (UTC)[reply]

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]

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]

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

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]

@K599: Thank you for the report. This is now Yes check.svg 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 Yes check.svg fixed. Thanks again. Dmehus (talk) 18:38, 26 December 2020 (UTC)[reply]
