Miraheze is a wiki hosting service that enables individuals and organizations to create and manage their own wikis for various purposes, including documentation, knowledge sharing, project management, and community building. It offers users a platform to collaborate, communicate, and publish content in a collaborative and accessible manner[3].


  1. MediaWiki Hosting: Miraheze utilizes MediaWiki, the same software that powers Wikipedia, as its hosting engine. This allows users to benefit from a familiar interface and a robust set of features for content creation and management.
  2. Customization: Users have the flexibility to customize their wikis by installing extensions, themes, and gadgets to enhance functionality and design. Miraheze supports a wide range of MediaWiki extensions, including VisualEditor and StructuredDiscussions.
  3. Community Engagement: Miraheze fosters community engagement through collaborative decision-making processes, such as Requests for Comment (RFCs), where users can voice their opinions on policy matters. Global administrators, including Stewards and Global Sysops, are elected by the community to oversee the platform.
  4. Support and Assistance: Miraheze provides support and assistance to users through various channels, including IRC chat, Discord, and on-wiki help center. Friendly volunteers are available to assist users with technical issues, migration, and general inquiries.
  5. Transparency and Accountability: Miraheze emphasizes transparency and accountability in its operations, with regular updates and reports on platform developments, finances, and governance. Users can contribute to the platform's improvement and decision-making processes through active participation and feedback.
