Purpose

Hellene Sun is a European Traditionalist wiki. The idea of Europa, the civilizational, metaphysical, and religious, aspects combined into a high level synthesis was born in the Aegean Sea; Hellenic, the Helios (Sun) of Europa. It is intrinsically Nationalistic and Racialist. One cannot separate the national and racial questions and be traditional. In this Age of Darkness this wiki aims to provide a Sacred Fire for those in the Struggle. It is our European and Aryan right, de jure, to protect and defend ourselves by the simple fact we exist. The first and unbreakable Natural Law is the right to self-defence which is the immutable right of every living being.

Without the symbolic terminology I needed something to store webpages that was publicly available without the dynamic disappearance that is the nature of the Internet. Websites come and go, and as people use mass social networks (social media) more which are detrimental to the long term storage and retrieval of information plus their increasing agenda of censorship, bad interfaces, I needed something for our use where contributors of like mind and spirit could contribute without a steep learning curve or a vast investment of time and energy. Another problem is the mass tracking and profiling these sites use and loss of anonymity which was a major ethos of the early Internet before the corporate assimilation of it which is addressed below.

Content

Anything pertaining to European Tradition is permissible and the focus while trying to cover the most essential topics in the least that can be displayed as a webpage. For administrative, authoring, and archiving, reasons text without the over abundance of irrelevant or useless imagery is highly preferred. Substance over candy is the ethos where the text of the content can be parsed, read, written, formatted, and stored with ease. Present web design is a mockery of the original intent of the Internet. Sharing of information is more important than presenting it, in a clean and efficient manner so the message of the content is forefront without distraction or hassle. Equally important is the long term archiving which is unmatched by text files. Text is King! If it is not well formatted after clicking the Print link then it is a badly formatted page. It should be as easy to read on screen as on paper. Similar to English writing if it does not sound good spoken then it is not good written English.

Software

This wiki uses the PmWiki software. It is one of the oldest out there and unlike MediaWiki which runs Wikipedia and a lot of other wiki sites PmWiki is fast, clean, and stable. It has been thoroughly tested in real usage for a long time. The major advantage is that it uses no database, everything is stored in text files which makes the internals blazingly fast considering the speed of solid state drives now common in the hosting industry. It also makes administration much easier as native *nix tools can be used instead of complicated and convoluted database systems. Everything is stored as a wiki page that is a text file that is easily readable and edited by the lowly Man. Those with long experience with the web will instantly recognize the superiority of this approach.

Only two cookies are ever used by PmWiki: one if using the Edit password (storing Author name for instance) too edit the wiki, and one for visitors that only stores the most basic information needed by the wiki software itself. There is no tracking, no heavy javascript burning your CPU out, no personal identifying information, basic CSS, and very clean HTML. While on older computers and browsers the modern web will break, here our pages are backwards and future proof within reason. Compare page size to any other system out here. One will be amazed how small these pages are which allows a lot more text without running into loading and parsing problems. Low computing resources and low bandwidth are not a major concern unlike the majority of the web.

One of the major reasons I picked PmWiki is the easy editing without bugs and weird "features" that made editing text a pain, or required an unreasonable amount of computing resources. There is no other software out there that is as resource friendly or as easy to write pages with that does not require a steep learning curve. If one can use a word processor one can use this wiki without a lot of thought or training on how to format the page. On the other hand it does not limit you as WYSIWYG editors do. The other benefit is it is a wiki which means contributors can create their own pages and has a revision history so spam and mistakes can be fixed, and having a revision history for every page is very important to the more technical and in general. It makes us accountable. Yet, one does not need a lot of technical knowledge too contribute which is essential as I have noticed a lot of intelligent people are not very computer proficient and can only use a computer in a primitive way (as a general rule). This should not stop them from sharing their knowledge and thoughts.

Here is the biggest selling point to the author: anonymity. While everybody is used to a username/password combination it also leaves an electronic trail tied to emails. Most people are account fatigued. Although a username/password account type system can be set up with PmWiki it is not default. There is an Edit password and all you need to contribute is this password and I turned on an Author name is required to save the page. That is it. Pick a name, and no one (including Hellene Sun) knows your email and one less account to remember or to be compromised. No personal data is stored on the server, any information PmWiki needs is stored in a cookie on your computer and nowhere else on the Internet including Hellene Sun. No information leaves this website unless you click on a link to another website.

Usage

A wiki is a little different than other websites one is probably used to. A wiki's primary purpose is to allow easy collaboration on webpages over the Internet. Accordingly there is things different one sees but familiar from sites like Wikipedia.

One thing superior with Hellene Sun over a lot of other sites is the full text search accessed through the Search box in the upper right. Because every page is stored as a text file decades of text and file search optimization is default while the optimization of database searches is still an arcane art. The design of the software is that if it is not clean it is not implemented, every aspect of the software has been designed and written with that as a guiding principle. So the sidebar menu headers are groups (folders) but this can quickly become a cumbersome and aggravating hierarchy. Tags come to the rescue for finer grained organization and topic theming.

Every menu header (i.e. Main) has a quick blurb of what topic it covers, except for Main (where non-fiction goes for the impatient) the name makes it self evident and clear anyways. Every group has an Index page that is nothing but a listing of all pages in that group and is for visual convenience as Search and Tags are probably the way most will find what they are looking for.

As quickly explained in Main Tags listed under the Tag List page is for symbolic, thematic, fine grained organization of wiki pages. As the simple and clean group organization becomes unwieldy with a lot of pages, not to mention slow to list, the clean Tag system provides the missing functionality.

The Bookmarks page is an attempt to collect a central page of website links that may or may not be censored by search engines and as a central reference.

For the reader and visitor this should help. Enjoy your browsing!
