You know, someone should really make a competitor to wikipedia.org that takes bitcoin donations if they're not going to take 'em.

Already a thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=343021.0

Why are people so eager to donate their bitcoins to wikipedia?

I'm sure they'll take them at some point in the future, but then people will probably ask why they're not accepting Litecoins or bbqcoins or whatever.

If you really want to donate why don't you just exchange your bitcoins to USD and give them.
It will save some tax too.

Exactly, there's lots of people with large amounts of money in bitcoin, and some of them like wikipedia and would like to donate to it.

Easy as that.
