I'd like to mention in this thread that Wikimedia NYC has started to accept bitcoin. At the time of writing they have 68 BTC, maybe a few of us can donate directly and prop it up to 100 BTC? There's probably no need to turn this into a full Bitcoin100 thing, unless we feel otherwise.

Can anyone edit that page of theirs?

If you're not excited by the idea of being an early adopter 'now', then you should come back in three or four years and either tell us "Told you it'd never work!" or join what should, by then, be a much more stable and easier-to-use system. - GA
It is being worked on by smart people. -DamienBlack

Bitcoin addresses on publicly editable wiki pages?  How umm.. innovative :/

Yes. Without logging in, even.

that is slightly disturbing..  We should probably contact them to make sure that addy was even put in place by them to start with. And secondly to ask, that if so, they do something to protect it. Just the same couldn't someone also edit their paypal button? very odd...

Via a PM: Thank you, Clark, for honoring your pledge by sending that first coin. The OP has been updated reflecting your kind contribution.



Ain't that special? What if they had a vanity address like 1WikiNYC.....   ?  Smiley

Is this no longer a concern, GoWest?

I noticed that, too, yesterday when I sent my 1.23456789 BTC donation.

I have a question that's slightly off topic, so forgive me. Are there another organizations we are missing that are based on a similar structure, ones that may be a perfect fit in accepting Bitcoin donations? Ones that where the main body would reject Bitcoin, but the sub units are able to accept Bitcoin donations as we've just witnessed with Wikipedia/Wikimedia NYC. If so, name them. (sorry if this is unclear, for I'm a tad tired but felt it important enough to get it out there while fresh in mind)

There are lots of non-profits that have a chapters model something like this.  The first that pops into my mind is the ACLU.  Though... I'm not an expert on that. Certainly it would be a useful tactic to use elsewhere.

I brought the above forward to make sure there's not a missed opportunity. Thank you, gmaxwell, for your suggestion. Others?

Call me crazy but something sure doesn't look right with that address.

1F4Ka3nHH3Ef1P2f66AwLEqwHo6J9wFHKC

FHKC and F4K looks like Fu**

Aw***L as in AWFUL

6*9

66(6) (maybe stretching it here, but)

Eq = Equal

Ho

wHo = WHO?

To me, it looks like it's spelling out something in code.

Please, call me crazy if I'm mistaken. The pattern just doesn't look/feel right.

I'm curious as to who bought this to GoWest's attention, thus then having him publish the information here: http://www.thebitcointrader.com/2011/12/nyc-chapter-of-wikimedia-foundation-now.html

Did they catch on? Did someone give them the heads up?

Is there a page to show when the Bitcoin donation option was first edited in?

As far as I can tell, it's not fixed. Only https://nyc.wikimedia.org/wiki/Donate is protected. https://nyc.wikimedia.org/wiki/Home is not.

Can someone who is more used to wiki pages notify this Peter C. guy? I don't know how that works.

(@Phinnaeus: Check the revision history. The bitcoin address was added 27 December. A couple of hours later the address was indeed changed, after which the page was protected. But this is about the donation page, not the home page, which also has the address.)

I noticed and fixed it.

Now how the hell did I miss that? In Marketplace? At any rate, the concerns I had are now mute.

Welcome aboard, Peter. If there is anything this community can do for you, simply ask.

I'd like to mention in this thread that Wikimedia NYC has started to accept bitcoin. At the time of writing they have 68 BTC, maybe a few of us can donate directly and prop it up to 100 BTC? There's probably no need to turn this into a full Bitcoin100 thing, unless we feel otherwise.
https://nyc.wikimedia.org/wiki/Donate

Awesome! 1 BTC sent.

Awesome! 1 BTC sent.

I'll assume you meant that you sent 1 BTC to Wikimedia NYC and not the Bitcoin100 wallet.

If everyone reading this donated $5, our fundraiser would be over today.

As seen on many Wikipedia pages. It could easily read as follows:

If everyone reading this donated $5 with Bitcoin, thereby eliminating PayPal's 9% recognized fee for this size donation, our fundraiser would have been over yesterday.

The moment I break even on my mining investment, I will be much more willing to donate my coins and donate to this forum as well as to the bitcoin 100 as I think both are very helpful for the bitcoin community.
