    All right, Wikipedia users... they are asking everyone who uses it to donate $2.75 today. Go for it, you pay more for picks. It's worth supporting for $2.75/year.

    I’ve been supporting them with 10 euros a year for some years now and have been active in editing some stuff. Love it :thumb:

    Yeah, I support if funds are running low. After all, it's a great resource for the World.

    Thank you for your post.

    I donated a nice chunk, and signed up for monthly donations going forward.

    Great resource for unbiased, free knowledge. I use it a lot.

    It's worth it just reading the behind-the-scenes user pages and editing squabbles.

    Just donated as well, it's nice to have somewhere on the internet that is still ad free and non profit and I use Wikipedia a ton so I definitely get good value from it.

    Worthwhile cause but providing links to fundraising sites is against site rules.

    Pay for misinformation?

    I could watch the news and get my misinformation for free

    Dr Mrs Daddy finds WKPDA a royal PITA. She teaches lazy undergrads who think it's a reliable primary source.

    Remember door salesmen selling encyclopaedias on your door volume A-to-Z for $300-$400. (Dont remember the price but they were expensive)
    This is better.. Love Wikipedia, got so much knowledge from there.

    I'm probably in the minority here with my cheapskate A$$ but, I don't pay for free stuff.
    Same info available everywhere.
