I am wondering how Wikipedia makes money to pay for everything? I don't see any advertising at Wikipedia site so they obviously don't make money with advertising, can anybody shed some light on this topic?

Wikipedia is not a commercial website so they rely on donations for financial support.

Read the page that was linked to. It tells you the size of the company and the needs they have. If you want to learn more about there is more detailed information available.

I never said it did, you seem to skim responses most of the time. I said it will tell you the SIZE of the company and the NEEDS that company has. You know such as computing power, office, staff, things like that. If you really want to figure out how much money it spends, you would have to dig into the tax info and what not. But like i ALSO stated there is more detailed information available, YOU just have to do the research on YOUR part, or someone else has to do it for you. But they also do actively state when they are in dire need of X amount of dollars to keep running for X more months. They deserve much more in donations than they get that is for sure.

I don't care how much money they need to run their website as long as I get what I need from them for free!

Yeah I think this looks not very user friendly. I know Wikipedia is the best but come-on when I see that messages on top of the screen asking me for money I just want to get out of there looks really bad!

Then should not be using their resources if you can't help them survive. Pretty simple to me.

Nothing is free in this world. You don't feel all the information you have gotten from there is not worth $3?

Why should anyone get anything for free in general? Nothing is truly free in the end, so why would you feel entitled to something free? Why would you justify not helping something that has been of use to you, on the assumption that all others just dont do that. I personally make sure to give back to all the open source projects I am apart of or use that help me make my yearly income for all these years.
