Wikipedia is censorship and propaganda/shill central, so I'll be glad when it shuts down and is replaced by a truly non biased website.

Which is nothing considering nobody else is willing to pay for such a site. Like it or not, we're never getting anything better than Wikipedia.

Wikipedia consists of an ancient markup engine and a few servers, keeping it running costs a trivial amount compared to their overall target. The donation drive is just an excuse for jimbo and his friends to make money from the gullible.

>>45350673
According to their financial statement from last year, about $2.5 million/year

Interestingly they also have $27m in cash, so even if everyone stopped donating today wikimedia could keep the servers up for another 10 years.

OK then, if they're all so worthwhile, why don't you tell me why the overall salary bill has increased by a factor of 10 since 2009? What is wikipedia doing now that it wasn't doing then?

Mmm, the delicious taste of a faggots ignorance is strong on this one.

>employees in 2009: less than 30 (including volunteers)
>employees in 2014: 200+
It's almost like it increased by a factor of 10.

>What is wikipedia doing now that it wasn't doing then?
Working side by side the EFF to defend privacy, has some ongoing lobbying efforts. It give scholarships to dedicated writers so they can travel to wikimedia events and help plan next steps in the project.

Not gonna lie, I wish I were rich.

But why?
A: jobs for the boys.

Great, exactly what you were expecting them to spend it on when they said "donate now or wikipedia can't afford to host itself"

>It give scholarships to dedicated writers
aka. giving your money directly to his friends
>>
Why don't they just have a plain text image ad on the main page and side of the search page not based on any previous searches on specific articles?
How fucking hard would that be?

It'd cover their costs (considering all of 5 people give them $5 every time they bother everyone with their bullshit) and nobody would give a shit

Since everything on wikipedia is GNU-FDL, and CC couldn't you create a site that mirrors all of the content, but runs ads?

Maybe add some better cross-linking, or a nicer layout to have some kind of selling point.

>I've given my money to enriching a bunch of nepotistic wikipeados but I'm going to deny it because muh buyers remorse

Well, each to his own. But I'll leave you to wonder why jimbo gave a job to, and continued promoting on wikipedia, the known fraud essjay, even when he must have known when he hired him.
>>
>>45351158

Actually I support the Jimmy's model. I don't see why you can't make money and give something useful back to the communities. Unless you have a black and white morality.
And obviously you will call your friends. Who are more likely to support you and take the first bitter years and get comfy after the heavy lifting is done.

Anyone can tell you what's wrong with Wikipedia or Linux or Apple or MS or your tastes, and after that all left is circlejerking.
I'm telling you there are good things being done by Wikipedia, just to make sure you're looking at an alternative interpretation, which you're always free to disregard.

That is the fairest thing I ever read, I mean it unironically. The next questions is, where are the alternatives? Why haven't any other faggot provided us with an alternative we can use free as in beer?
Are there alternatives? Sure there are but sadly, I've seen them and this is the best of a bad situation. Therefore, based m00t.

On second thought, I've never posted on SA but it don't seem as funny as 4chan
>>
>>45351951
>SA
full of nazi mods
>>
>>45351951
there is no need for alternatives when everything goes fine. Look at Google, until it fucks up in a big way it will be the only real search engine. Until 4chan fucks up in a big way, it will be the only real ib of the internet.
>>
>>45351991
Google search is not that good. TBH, many times I have to rephrase my query to get a result, not necessarily the result. If anything that is an exercise on how people have low standards. It could be better. So could 4chan.
But then again, apparently no one else is trying, at least not for 4chan and Wikipedia.

People say Wikipedia should add ads, as long as they are text only and unintrusive. This is a very slippery slope.

The soccer team Barcelona went ~100 years with no sponser, one day they thought 'hey, why not show UNICEF support? they're a charity so it's ok!'. A few years later some Arabs offered them a load of money to advertise their charity, I mean it's still a charity so it's alright, right? Nowadays they advertise Qatar Airlines, that all happened in less than 10 years.

Do you people really pay that much money for coffee?
>>
>>45352126
no, he said great, like 'comes with blowjob' coffee.
Regular coffee is like 10 american cents, good coffe 50 american cents, gourmet apple™ coffe 1 american dollar
>>
>>45352126
In the UK you pay around £2-3 for a Costa coffee
In MX you pay around $25-45 MXN for anything at Starbucks.
So yeah, there's people who pay that much for a coffee.
