Have you ever donated to Wiki?

Admittedly I have not, but I don't know why, something just clicked when I read their plea and I think I might. I mean, I use it probably more than I should, and even though content can be debatable (not really Wki's fault), the site itself, as in the search engine, lack of ads, etc. is perfect. I've read the banners before when they ask for money and usually ignore them, simply because I don't donate too often unless there is a tragedy or great need. I just don't have much disposable funds with which to donate.

If you have, what made you do it? If you have not, like myself, why not?

I'm really considering it, because I use it all the time. But it costs money...

No, I don't have any money and if I did it would go to people who need it, not where it would just help incredibly slightly. It's still certainly a good thing to do though.

I haven't, but I've been considering it recently. It's a good service.

I donated $20 when they were asking for donations. I use that shit like everyday and I feel like that was the least I could do for them. I think I made this same thread asking if users did or didnt donate.

EDIT: Here is is. http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/foru...=1508685&page=1

I don't know why they just let a few ads now and then. They will always ask for donations every year at this rate.
