    Okay, I just saw this on Wikipedia and realized that I've never actually made a donation like this and probably never will unless I force myself to (that too because I should and not because I actually want to). I also realized that almost everyone I know would think in a similar way. I would be willing to wager that Indians would make up a very small percentage of the donors- is there a way to find out?


    Is it an Indian thing? Apparently, there are enough people worldwide who do want to donate. It doesn't take anything spectacular. 340 million people donating even 1 rupee worldwide would make it 7 million USD worldwide. Don't say that you donate to very worthy causes in general- the fact that you use wiki as often as you do is enough to justify a sizeable donation surely.

    Nothing. I saw the donation banner until a few days ago (it's gone now and replaced by a Thank You note...which is what made me feel a little bad about myself). That's precisely the point. I don't seem to even want to give anything to them.


    Would you donate to wikipedia?

    There is a difference between liking things for free and being a freeloader. Everyone likes things for free but some are also willing to pay voluntarily for services provided.


    Dude, are you thick? I've just said twice that I don't want to donate.

    Should was never in question. The question is "will you?". If yes, is it just because you should or because you want to?

    I once donated 10$ to a torrent site after using it for 2 years. The site got busted 3 months later!

    That sounds fair. Would you donate to wikipedia though?

    Fair!? It felt like I lost a friend when that site went down.

    Probably wouldn't donate to wikipedia. I use it everyday but.... meh.
