    Wikipedia sucks since they write the name of their nodes in plaintext in the url. That's only useful for making people trust your links, not for any users already on the site, but it can embarrass them or even get them in trouble. Also why the hell, don't them make torrents of the site themselves with working link so that you can view it off-line? There's other people who've tried, but sucked at it and won't make new updates either.

    Why the fuck would you call him a kid lol




    Why would anyone want a rival site? I enjoy only having one place to go to if I did information.
    Nobody might want it. But if Wikipedia was down, trying to force payments, people would very VERY easily just use the alternative.

    The longer wiki stayed down, the more growth any rival site could achieve.


    This happens to some sites in certain businesses. They can get conveniently attacked when someone needs their userbases' attention.

    I removed 2 suggestions from my sig because one was implemented and the other was addressed.

    If they start taking money from companies, how can we trust them to keep the site non biased.

    I don't see how it's a problem to see these appeals made as banners at the top of the web, and how it would be any better if it was a constant spam of consumer trash.
    They're the worst - those red cross people or Fred Hollows, I donate to the blind all they ask for is some money in a bucket, but the other others want a weekly/monthly debit fuck that.

    I mean if a few people on a few islands in the pacific, with simple cheaply fixed eye problems can't be fixed in Fred's life time then IT AIN'T EVER GOING TO BE FIXED - if it's so cheap why don't they fix it themselves!!

    Same with those starving African's that the Christians insist on feeding, in the 80's there were 20million starving along comes LiveAide concert to save them, but WOAH Now! there are 80million of them!!!! Give them some condoms and tell them if they can't feed themselves then not such a good idea to make some children. FGS

    Um there are rival sites to who ever claimed why anyone would need them. All the wiki's you guys go to are rivals that have their niche. In a way that is a market check on wikipedia. If wikipedia falls you will see many wiki's that are made by the subject. For example want to know bio go to bio wiki.

    Personally I donated because I use wikipedia almost daily.
