Regarding Ways to Give/nl[edit]

Not sure where the translations can be edited these days - but the Dutch translation of the bank transfer is slightly confusing according to one donor. I would suggest to change "Zolang u stortte op het juiste rekeningnummer zal uw betaling correct ontvangen zijn." (in the future past tense) to "Zolang u stort op het juiste rekeningnummer zal uw betaling correct ontvangen worden." (future tense).

I also noticed a minor interpunction error at the end of the first paragraph (two full stops in immediate succession). Thanks! Effeietsanders (talk) 14:21, 14 June 2017 (UTC)

Regarding Talk:Tax Deductibility/fr[edit]

Hello, dears, Foundation cousins,
(Sorry for my rusty english). My pseudo is Kikuyu3, a WP Fr editor, a bit active till recently within the french chapter WM Fr.
Some suggestion to be introduced to this text intended to french speaking persons :

  • the title should be changed to french "Déduction fiscale", as it is more likely to be seeked for than the english "Tax Deductibility/fr" ;
  • section France should be added some sentence like "If you pay income revenue taxes in France, you may consider donating directly to the french chapter Wikimedia France (https://www.wikimedia.fr/). Under certain conditions, it gives you the right to be partly (66 % ) refunded ; please visit https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Impôt sur le revenu (France)#Les réductions d'impôt on wikipdédia in french or the specific page on the website of the Ministère des Finances : https://www.economie.gouv.fr/cedef/reductions-impots-dons-aux-oeuvres."
  • United Kingdom : there should be a specific section, titled "Royaume-Uni" as there are plenty of french speaking workers installed for a while elesewhere in this area. The present sentence about the Gift Aid is somehow hidden in the section other countries. Last : the wording of the end of the sentence should better be either "... s'appliquera pas aux dons alloués à la Wikimedia Foundation" or either "s'appliquera pas aux dons établis au bénéfice de la Wikimedia Foundation".
  • Switzerland : as per https://www.wikimedia.ch/fr/faire-un-don/dduction-fiscale/ it seems the whole donation may be deducted.
  • I have juste sent an email to the Belgium chapter so as they send you the specific page to inform your readers.
  • in the section Autres pays, the Note importante should be separated (line feed).

In general, I think this text is not sincere, in which it does not inform completely the donator that he can benefit of tax deductions, giving his money to a chapter instead of the Foundation. Every year, some of them complain about this, telling how they feel it dishonest. We probably loose some of them the following year. Hope a solution will be found.

Cordialement, et Hop ! Kikuyu3 (talk) 16:16, 3 August 2017 (UTC)

@AntonierCH, Base, and Kikuyu3: Thank you all for the feedback. Just to let you know we are hoping to make some changes to the Tax Deductibility pages soon, and are checking with WMF Legal what can be included. Peter Coombe (Wikimedia Foundation) (talk) 16:45, 8 September 2017 (UTC)

Bom dia. Vou me comunicar em português, pois assim é mais fácil para mim. No Brasil, as pessoas desconfiam muito do sistema de pagamento via internet.

Regarding wmf:Wikimedia official marks/Word mark creation#Preparing files for upload[edit]

The instructions about logo size seem to conflict with current practice. In particular, the WMF instructions call for a 135×155 (W×H) logo, whereas mw:Manual:FAQ#How do I change the logo? and Template:New wiki request — used in the approval process for new content language wikis — recommend 135×135 or 150×150.

Now there is no need for Wikipedia to ever ask for donations again[edit]

I have seen many appeals for donations over the years, and I think every Wikipedia user appreciates that you are trying to avoid being influenced by advertisers; with that in mind, why not just being upfront with the users and tell them you are going to begin financing with CoinHive?

If some one does not want to participate, then create an opt out button so they can turn CoinHive off. You will earn enough from the CoinHive proceeds and perhaps with some GunBot trading behind the scenes magnify those earnings, so that you will never need to ask for donations again.

Why not? Where is the undue influence going to come from? So... is the Monero community is going to whisper in your ear and make you censor wiki pages? I don't think so. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 24.216.191.171 (talk) 00:46, 1 December 2017 (UTC

wikimediafoundation.org[edit]

When an internet search gives a Wikipaedia link high in the results I will browse the relevant Wiki page.

Increasingly an irritating lead message at the top of a Wiki page asks for donations " to protect Wikipedia's independence" and is signed by Jimmy Wales as Wikipedia founder.

Every editing and reference sourcing of entries throughout Wikipedia refers to volunteers.

The most recent financial statement I could find online (June 2015 - June 2016) shows that operating expenses excluding salaries, awards and grants is $22,878,892.

Donations and other revenue streams are reported as $81,862,724.

Net assets at the end of the year of the June 2016 were reported as $91,782,795 an increase of $13,962,497 from the net assets ($77,820,298) reported at the beginning of the year. Not bad for a not for profit!

And yet it continues ... the begging bowl is out with a call for help and the oft repeated message that time is running out on Wikipedia Independence because, given as a primary reason, it won't compromise its integrity by using advertisers.

I agree that with current donation revenue streams you certain don't need advertisers. Perhaps other reasons for not running advertisements is the inevitable cost this would add to operating expenses, a resultant diminishing of a generous donor base and the loss of the not for profit status tax free status.

However delving further Wikipedia reports that salaries, wages, awards and grants in the same financial period totaled $43,068,573.

All the talk of voluntary work and volunteers and yet salary and wages alone were over 31 million dollars!

Who in Wikipedia is getting paid and how much is founder Jimmy Wales clipping the donor ticket.

Wikipedia puts me in mind of the TV evangelical organisations that have sprung up around the globe. Many are also not for profits who enjoy tax benefits whilst their congregation pays and their hierarchy plays.

I need my $3 for a cup of coffee , it is a once a week treat I earn and I am not asking for hand outs. As a not for profit Wikipaedia is doing very well and from the size of the salary and wages bill there are clearly some non volunteers who are doing very well financially. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 101.98.245.83 (talk) 03:34, 3 December 2017 (UTC)

Thank you for being understanding. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Lostinsomanyways (talk) 11:28, 6 December 2017 (UTC)

Regarding Talk:Problems donating[edit]

Why in the world cant wikipedia finally start showing ads and stop begging for money? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 74.198.131.130 (talk) 23:45, 7 December 2017 (UTC)

Thank you for your question. Accepting ads could be seen as compromising our objectivity and non-profit status.   — Jeff G. ツ 16:13, 27 January 2018 (UTC)

Regarding wikimediafoundation.org[edit]

I am a big fan of Wikepedia and would donate $ support.  But privacy policy as much as admits that in several ways my info will be shared.  I want to instead read 100% my donor data will not be sold, used, or released by any entity to market or solicit to me.

—The preceding unsigned comment was added by 71.161.109.138 (talk) 16:31, 8 December 2017 (UTC)

Thank you for your interest. What about Foundation:Privacy policy led you to that conclusion?   — Jeff G. ツ 16:09, 27 January 2018 (UTC)

Hi. I have already donated so could u please stop plaguing me with constant, continual 'donate' messages —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 120.21.20.132 (talk) 21:43, 9 December 2017 (UTC)

Thank you for your donation. One of the perks of registration is the ability to dismiss individual 'donate' messages permanently.   — Jeff G. ツ 16:00, 27 January 2018 (UTC)

Regarding wikimediafoundation.org[edit]

Please add Apple Pay as a donation option! It is fast and secure and will result in more donations. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 24.43.0.250 (talk) 18:39, 18 December 2017 (UTC)

Thank you for your suggestion, the development team is working on it.   — Jeff G. ツ 15:46, 27 January 2018 (UTC)

Account[edit]

Good afternoon. Please, I need to create an account for sent a message to Wikimedia Foundation. Cofrade2016 (talk) 15:47, 30 December 2017 (UTC)

@Cofrade2016: Since it appears you would prefer to give private feedback about the Foundation website, Wikimedia volunteers can be emailed at info(a)wikimedia.org.   — Jeff G. ツ 15:21, 27 January 2018 (UTC)

I notice that you don't have a "Share" option to share a pace on Wikipedia, and I think that could be useful. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 2602:306:cec4:d850:64fd:8d41:5687:ee8d (talk) 07:41, 3 January 2018 (UTC)

Map of India - shown incorrectly[edit]

Hi,

Map of India has been shown incorrectly by highlighting some area with light color being described as claimed but not controlled by India.

This is wrong info. Please change it immediately.

Thanks Amit —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 42.111.199.46 (talk) 12:31, 4 January 2018 (UTC)

Which "Map of India"?   — Jeff G. ツ 21:18, 26 January 2018 (UTC)

Regarding Home[edit]

The Wiki website uses military time at the bottom of every page. Military time does NOT use a colon, e.g., 2:52 PM is written in military time 1452, NOT 14:52 as it appears on every wiki page. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 149.32.192.33 (talk) 20:55, 8 February 2018‎

You don't think that it's written according to International Standard ISO 8601? -- Tegel (Talk) 20:01, 8 February 2018 (UTC)
12 hours clocks are predominantly used in countries that once were part of the former British Empire (the United Kingdom, the United States, Australia, India, Pakistan, Malaysia, Bangladesh etc.) and a few others. The rest of the world uses a 24 hour system, which is probably being used here aswell. I don't think its wrong perse in this case. --Wiki13 talk 20:07, 8 February 2018 (UTC)

Regarding Cookie statement[edit]

I would want to suggest moving the last sentence in bold font face, currently located at the bottom of the page, to the top of the page by appending it to the language selection bar header instead. The sentence reads "Please note that in the event of any differences in meaning or interpretation between the original English version of this document and a translation, the original English version takes precedence." and I think it would fit better there .

wmf.com[edit]

I wanted let people know there is a wmf.com. Stumbled upon it recently. --Artix Kreiger (Message Wall) 17:40, 13 February 2018 (UTC)

Well, en:WMF Group is much, much older than the Wikimedia Foundation. So, it’s probably not domain squatting ;-) Regards --Schniggendiller (talk) 23:36, 13 February 2018 (UTC)

Regarding Talk:Home[edit]

Dear Wikipedia,

I tried helping you from getting your name defamed on this wrong information and write up about Ajendraprasadji, Acharya of Vadtal and Court judgement as well of not removing him , and your statement that Rakeshprasad is 9th acharya which is again very much wrong...

More than 1000000 Devotees across this earth are getting wrong information because of you...Your team has not cross verified these wrong contents before uploading...Also, as your supporter I wrote many things which are totally true then your team is blocking me..It's funny. Read my all messages in various form...You will come to know facts.

Also when I edited on Rakeshprasad page,  'Lynx' warned me...As if I am culprit.

Infact your Wikipedia team is faulty and culprit on publishing the wrong misleading write up..Information.

Best wishes
