:It seems like every year someone brings up the pros of selling advertising space on the wiki, and I'll save IDC the time. The truth is, for the wiki, the cons outweigh the pros significantly. First off, the wiki is based on a site with no ads, and the creators of said site have said several times that they hate ads. Second, our community as a whole aren't really the type who would actually buy things from ads they see on a wiki. Third, the wiki recommends Firefox, and one of the more popular Firefox add-ons is a program that removes advertisements from pages. Finally, seriously, advertisements are amazingly intrusive and annoying. The only ads that aren't are the "Ads by Google" blocks, and even those have several flaws. So, in short, no, ads aren't wonderful, they're horrible. --{{User:Super Martyo Brother/sig}} 06:09, 11 October 2009 (UTC)

This is absolutely great, IDC. Really inspiring. Now if you will politely wait until I get paid for my FIRST JOB EVER I will donate. --Mario2.PNG Super Martyo boing! 05:18, 8 October 2009 (UTC)

DO I HAS? I dunno, but I'm gonna check.

Ok, I'm about to ask my mom if she'll donate, but I'm worried that she'll say no. Here is what I'll say: "Hey Mom, You know that Homestar Runner website I'm always on? Well I was wondering, will you donate to it? You can use your PayPal account for it and it is only 11 bucks or less." so what do you think? -DavidMichael

I think a good idea would be to hand her eleven dollars as you say this. — It's dot com 20:10, 8 October 2009 (UTC)

Ok, Joey, You will have have $11 soon from David Michael, Ohio, U.S. DavidMichael 13:42, 10 October 2009 (UTC)

Don't want to come across as pushy either, but...

Okay guys, I donated. I did so last time and was slightly disapointed after I realized that the "thank you" page appearantly isn't updated anymore. It kind of made me feel like my money was less appreciated than that of other wiki users who were present as long as the page was updated. Maybe I wouldn't have expected anything if the donations page didn't mention the list. But it did, and still does, and all I'm saying is if you want to motivate people to donate, please either update that list or at least have the donations page inform us that it isn't going to be updated anymore. (No intention to sound aggressive or anything, sorry if it appears that way. It's just my lack of better words.) --Cass from Germany 20:14, 8 October 2009 (UTC)

Which "thank you" page are you talking about? If you mean the Ledger, that just takes a few minutes to update after a donation. --Jay stuck at home (Talk) 20:18, 8 October 2009 (UTC)
I meant the HRWiki:Thank You! page which is linked to from the "donations" page and which, according to its "history", was last updated in 2007. --Cass from Germany 20:22, 8 October 2009 (UTC)
Oh. --Jay stuck at home (Talk) 20:24, 8 October 2009 (UTC)

Dear Cass, I know this is belated, but thank you for your donation, sincerely. Joey was the one who maintained that page, but he's pretty much here about twice a year these days. I meant to pick up the slack, but I didn't, and I apologize. We'll try to do better in the future. Thanks again! — It's dot com 20:43, 8 October 2009 (UTC)
