Re: Donation banner and strongly negative reactions [In reply to]

Ah - I was told that ru.wikibooks did not have the banner because all
banners there were disabled.

Thank you to everyone else who commented. I suppose I wasn't "plugged-in"
enough last time around to get a full sense of the reaction to the banner -
I remember some negative reactions, but not on the level I've seen so far.
Given your answers, and particularly the statistics on donations so far, it
does seem like the positive reaction outweighs any potential negative.

I hope that the folks who are vocal about not donating to the WMF and why
are met, as often as possible, with counter-arguments about why they should
and why others should as well. I'm concerned that when that doesn't happen,
it makes other current Wikimedians have less confidence in the Foundation
and also makes them less likely to personally donate.

Trying to guilt someone into donating isn't exactly nice...

Like I said, if someone wants to donate, by all means we should
make it easy and accessible and welcome it with open arms. If
they don't, forcing the "please donate now" message down their
throats is both rude and nonconstructive.

Well, yeah. We're the #8 (Alexa) or #4 (ComScore) site that *doesn't
have ads*. One banner? Any other site would have FLASHING CRAP and
POPUPS and HANDY LINES OF TEXT with "Get Marcus Aurelius on eBay!" and
OTHER SUCH ANNOYING RUBBISH. We have a banner for a while once a year.

And I like the theme: "C'mon, you use the heck out of us. You can
spare some pennies."

(I'm not contributing money - I pay in chunks of my soul, like most of
us here. But I feel I get good value for them!)

Hmmm, I hope that you do not take this as a strong signal that from now
on, you should not raise issues anymore in public.

WalleyWag is paper toilet. That's useful, but that's often dirty and
goes down the drain very quickly.
Most people who read that kind of stuff know that there is always a bit
of truth in it, and always a lot of exageration. And they take the
content with a bit of salt.

The worse that can happen is not WalleyWag making exaggeration. It is
people stopping to talk, discuss, claim, complain, raise issues etc...
publicly, because of the fear the toilet paper will absorb the worse.

Regarding the statistics page:

The "minimum" columns isn't that useful. I'd propose using its
space for a "median" column.

Valleywag has a current Alexa page rank of 28,596. We wouldn't want
that to improve.

I understand how the minimum donated some day can be $0.01 USD. But 0.00?
Looks like it's saying "The person who donated the less, didn't donate"

I suppose that it was a donation on a different currency, valued less
than $0.01, but then it should probably be shown with more decimal digits.

How useful are donations smaller than a cent?

If I recall last year's discussions, most donations under a dollar actually
cost more to the WMF than they bring in (due to PayPal transaction fees).
Also, I saw somewhere in the plans a Javascript solution to set the minimum
donation so that every donation brings in money (~1$ mimimum donation).

As I understand, it donations less than $0.30 go entirely to PayPal.
There is no cost to the WMF if the donation is less than $0.30, but
there is also no gain.

It could be useful to include on the donation page something like;

"Every donation, how small it may be is welcome ... but know that by
donation only $1 means we get only X% of your money after transactions
fees. If you donate $5 then we receive X% of your donation."


I do not know the current fees but it think for $1 is must be around
$0,60 to the WMF and $0,40 paypal. So 40% lost, 60% of your donation
received. For $5 that is that a smaller part that goes to paypal.

That could motivated people for not donating a very small amount but
give a bit more.

Btw;
http://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/Special:ContributionHistory

these numbers are those not the source amounts before the transactions fees?

Most of the really tiny donations (especially in USD) are criminals
attempting to verify stolen credit cards. There is no point in begging
them to donate more. :)

For the non-fraudsters use JS to set a currency dependent minimum
which makes sense for the typical users of the currency. Trying to
get people to understand paypal fees is just too much complexity, and
is likely to just bring crys about why we don't offer a lower overhead
option (I think the google payment service is less costly than paypal,
for example).

If you explain paypal fees clearly as they'll apply to that
transaction (i.e. taking into account the currency), then I'm sure
99% of people will be able to understand them just fine. However, the
ideal would be to use lower overhead options, as you say - is there
nothing around that has a low to zero overhead fee for non-profits/
charities?

The list is not Wikipedia: If you don't care to believe me it's your
own loss. This was what paypal told Wikimedia during a prior fund
raising drive. Perhaps it's no longer true, but I think it's a lot
more plausible than the notion of people genuinely intending to donate
0.01 USD.

Re: Donation banner and strongly negative reactions [In reply to]

By the way, to jump backward to the original topic of this discussion, I
wanted to point out that on the French Wikipedia, this year is the one
with the least negative reaction. I saw rather little discussion on the
pump. Certainly, some people are not so happy by the ridiculous size of
the banner, and by the fact it can not be easily collapsed entirely. And
perhaps are they tired of complaining year after year ;)
But seriously, there is rather little complaining this year.

Re: Donation banner and strongly negative reactions [In reply to]

Hoi,
If you are looking for positive reactions, on my blog,
http://ultimategerardm.blogspot.com I have endorsed the fund raiser. I have
even included the banner twice in a blog entry.

As has been also said by others, fund raising is an activity that enables
other activities, and there is more good that can be expected of the WMF
when it has the money that makes things possible. It will be interesting to
notice how the balance between expenditure and income will be. So far the
WMF organisation has done wonders with relatively little money.
Thanks,
GerardM
