I sent them an email at donate@wikimedia.org

Basically asked them why they aren't accepting Bitcoins, they are missing out on my donation as well as others, asked them to reconsider.

Bitcoin: An Idea Worth Spending

Here's the plan: Find out where Jimmy hangs out. Enter Bitsie. After a few drinks and laughs, they hook up, if you know what I mean. Prior to Bitsie leaving, she thanks Jimmy for finally accepting bitcoin donations on Wikipedia.

Question: Who's acting as escrow for the escort?

Headline: Wikipedia Finally Accepts Bitcoin Donations

Upon further review, Jimmy...

Sure:

I noticed you guys don't have a Bitcoin address to donate to. With Bitcoin becoming popular very fast, it would be foolish to not accept it. You're missing out on my donation, as well as countless thousands others. Is there any plans in the works?

Hi xxxx,

Thanks for your email and for your interest in supporting free knowledge. Unfortunately we do not accept bitcoins, however, we are aware of bitcoin and we will continue to monitor it with interest. For a full list of other donation options, please visit http://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/Ways_to_Give/en. Thank you again for your interest!

Several years ago I donated to wikipedia.  I won't do it again, even if I could use bitcoin.

They are way to delete happy.  I frequently come into deleted articles and even the bitcoin page has been totally cut down in size.  I can understand cutting pictures out, but text (if correct, no matter how esoteric) takes almost no space. 



Why is everyone not willing to donate to wikipedia anymore? Whats wrong with them?

If you never use Wiki, I guess thats a reasonable stance but they do now accept bitcoin donations.   Took them long enough, I think it also does bitcoin alot of good if you can represent this payment method well and contribute to upkeep of a common resource at the same time
