    Wikipedia is begging for money again

    I use Wikipedia sometimes to supplement my knowledge of a subject, but so many of their articles are blue pill or just plain wrong that I never donate anything to them. They have annoying, disrespectful nag banners on every article they leave there until they get all their precious shekels they want.

    Any of you guys donate to them?

    Absolutely not. First, they're essentially run by volunteers, so their only costs are for hosting.

    But really, over the last several years their political lean has started to rear its head. The multi-time a year begging for money just annoys me.

    I donated 3 dollars. I have used the site countless times for many years and so I felt that giving them a few bucks was no big deal given the fact it's been useful to me. Also I would prefer the site not have ads, although having a banner asking for money is also somewhat ad-like so I can see why it would be annoying. I have not really noticed a large political slant, although it would not surprise me to find out it's true as all platforms are subject to their creators potentially bleeding over their personal beliefs. If you don't feel you want to donate then don't.

    Never.

    I was a member of their site for a few months many years ago actually. I used to contribute to some articles, sharing my knowledge of literature, sports, and films. I left within a few months because that place is too cliquey, lawyer-ish, and (often) downright nasty. I don't like Wikipedia.

    Did they ever stop begging for money?

    I mean I understand why they do it and do love them as a website, but i'm quite sure they've been begging for ages. Didn't think they stopped for any reason..

    It's only as political as the shtbags that edit it. If you see bias, report it or remove it yourself.

    They are inconsistent on what constitutes a valid source and allowing secondary sources on some articles while removing primary sources on others.

    Sometimes eye witness accounts that have been published are allowed as primary sources and other times they are deemed "unreliable" depending on the content.

    This.
    I remember seeing this in 2008-09.

    They never got anything from me, odds are they never will.
    The one thing that I do like is exept for this donation ad that seems to show up yearly there is no bombardment of google ads.
    Some sites are downright annoying with google ads.
    My local newspaper puts up a message on their site saying that the ads keep the site going and gives me a sob story hoping that I'll turn off my ad blocker.
    Haha , too bad not going to happen.

    Ads would be less obnoxious than their begging pleas which take up more space.

    Also, their begging for money is annoying AF arrghh

    I know they're against it, but I wouldn't mind if they had a small sidebar of ads to pay for their operating costs like every other website does.

    It's fine for anything not political or cultural if you just want to get your feet wet. Good for general knowledge on most subjects.

    For more serious, polarizing topics it is total garbage and should be avoided like the plague. Instead of working off facts and remaining objective their contributors simply pass off their own biased opinions essentially turning the page into a personal blog.

    But really, over the last several years their political lean has started to rear its head. The multi-time a year begging for money just annoys me.
    This, controversies or conspiracy sections of any subjects are swept off pages. It's basically turning into Snopes (a "fact checker" with Left serving characteristics).

    Where does the money go exactly? If it's just hosting and maybe some webdev, that's fine.

    I donated $10. I've learned so much from that site and it's worth keeping ad free.

    They begged the **** out of me for money like 100x times though which is seriously annoying as ****.
