The operation of SikhiWiki depends on MediaWiki, a custom-made, free and open source wiki software platform written in PHP and built upon the MySQL database. The software incorporates programming features such as a macro language, variables, a transclusion system for templates, and URL redirection.

The SikhiWiki project relies on your support!

Our motto is: "Anything is possible! Our joint resources are vast and unlimited." Your tax-deductible gift to SikhiWiki is what will make the SikhiWiki service fast, reliable, and give it the resources needed for continued growth. We are building SikiWiki to last. It is a long-term project - a gathering place for us and our children as well as a legacy to future generations.

Contributions for SikhiWiki are made through SikhNet, which is a non profit organization that arranges and maintains SikhiWiki database system. All donations for SikhiWiki are tracked and used only for the development of SikhiWiki.
