Normally Don't Do Things Like This..

But I guess Wikipedia is having financial issues, and are asking for donations (just go on any Wikipedia page, and read the banner at the top). I like Wikipedia, and love that it's ad free and what it can and does teach me and a lot of other people. It's a great website. It's really the only time I've ever actually donated to a website without getting anything in return. I only had $5 in my paypal, but I gave it. Worth it, imo.

I'd be fine if Wikipedia used advertising. As long as it wasn't obnoxious advertising like UG uses.

I'd prefer it if Wikipedia just listed their sources. Since I can't use it at Uni.

Pages do have sources.. Listed under "References" on most pages.

What a shame they're not using the Jimmy Wales picture anymore cause it derived a lot of humor.

They do this every year. Just use ads for god sake, it's a lot less annoying than an appeal every year. No-one pays any attention to them anyway.

No I mean, just the sources. Because if I accidentally read any of the page (which I normally will), I could possibly get marked down. Stupid TurnItIn system.

Have you ever actually looked at those sources? Most of the time they're pretty shady.

Regardless of the sources, universities have reason enough to not let students use the internet except for searching for subject books written by the people working at a university...

It's all for the monies.
