Nope. I think they deserve it slightly more than the average Internet forum, since they both have hosting and curation costs but Wikipedia doesn't have ad revenue. But the content is entirely user-created, and I don't use it enough to justify donating to them without donating to, say, the Nissan forums as well.
I'll usually give up 5 bucks. Good, solid number. Every time I see the donation thing I just remind myself its like the Humble Bundle of Info.
next donation drive they should offer the wikipedia soundtrack if you donate more than the average
It's the only thing I've ever felt that I really should donate to but no, I haven't. I probably will next time Jimbo comes out to stare again.
Jimbo has those puppy dog eyes that make you feel like shit when you have to say no. Goddammit, at least I make the occasional contrib like the wikisloth I am.
I love wikipedia but I've never donated. Only because I'm poor though. I respect their commitment to staying non-profit and ad free, but honestly I wouldn't really care if they started using reasonable ads. I think asking me to buy some Sprite is less annoying then begging me for money.
