I donated £5 a year or two ago, but I've loved the website for 7+ years, so I'll definitely donate more soon.

I'm not using it and think it's unreliable source for information, so no.

Then why are you posting in this topic? It clear (even though I wasn't literal in the question) that it's for supporters.

Because you asked if I ever donated to Wikipedia? Didn't know the only possible answer was "yes". Sorry.

You're right, I should have been clearer.

King, why not add a poll to the topic if what you're trying to do is see how many people do or do not?

I didn't create it to see how much people have donated, just whether people have :)

I haven't yet, but I'm planning to. Wikipedia might be, for some, an unreliable source (which I no longer agree with. In the past, yes, but not today), but no one can deny that the site is a great tool for learning and knowledge.

never donated, I use it quite a bit just for a quick bit of info. I likely won't donate either.

Well said Pupik! Obviously some people need to know how threads and discussions work on Neowin.

And no I have not and will not donate to the site as its irrelevant to me.If it shut down tomorrow, nothing of value would have been lost IMO.
