Thank you to everyone for your participation. At this point, the 2011 fundraiser is complete, and we have frozen the results. However, feel free to keep participating so that you can see how the site worked.
Your idea has been submitted for review. It will appear soon.
Please click on the Wikipedia fundraising banner that makes you want to donate more.
Sacrifice a Burger.... Maintain your diet.... Maintain Wikipedia...!!
On Wikipedia, there is so much knowledge available and absorbed in peace and quiet. Please donate if you love that.
Only about one in a thousand Wikipedia users donates, but we think we can improve that -- by finding better banners. Please vote for the banner that makes you want to donate more. If you have new ideas for banners, please upload them. Some of the best banners will appear on Wikipedia during the fundraiser.
How can I donate to the Wikimedia Foundation, the parent organization of Wikipedia?
What does the Wikimedia Foundation do with the donations?
Good stuff. The two biggest expenses are technology and people. You can read more about this in their financial reports.
Does Wikipedia know about this project?
Of course. In fact, they are watching the results carefully and will try out some of the best ideas they see here. That means that your banner could appear in front of Wikipedia users all over the world.
Can I suggest a new image for a banner?
Sure. You can suggest any image that appears on Wikipedia. Please post a link to the image on our discussion forum; or direct it to us on twitter (@allourideas); or, you can contact us by email: wbc at allourideas dot org. Finally, if you would like to know more about the images we are using, check out our gallery page.
How many times can I vote?
As many times as you want. Each vote is helpful, and we will collect and process as many as you will give us.
Can I be on a Wikipedia banner?
Maybe. Wikimedia Foundation is always looking for new people to be on banners. Please send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org with a compelling message about your personal Wikipedia experience and why you want to help.
When does the Wikipedia Banner Challenge end?
Official voting ends when the fundraiser ends.
How can I help with the Wikipedia Banner Challenge?
You can help by telling your friends about the project. The more participants we have, the better banners we will find.
Also, you can post suggestions, bug reports, and other ideas to our discussion forum. Or, you can contact us by email: wbc at allourideas dot org.
