You're supporting developers, designers etc. I used to work for a video game company and I used to create animations for blizzard entertainment in their eSports field for overwatch.
Devs and designers work so much for little pay. I used to work 10 to 13 hour days with no overtime pay. It was the norm.
They don't care because we can easily be replaced cause it's a AAA company.
Except they make infinitely more money through ads and selling information then they do donations. Kinda like how no one pays to use Google
@theshadosnipe, wait.. so the guy out front charging $100 to use google was a scam?!
@Your Darkest Secret, *stuffs wads of $100s hastily away*
Not at all sir! Your patronage is necessary for our continued operation! Unfortunately, we have to increase it to $200 for your use of youtube as well
@theshadosnipe, I’ve never seen an ad on Wikipedia. That’s part of their whole pitch as to why they need donations, so they can stay ad free and thus unbiased
@theshadosnipe, okay... i do use YouTube a lot so if you say so then here you go *
@tampon thief, well they may be add free but any semblance of non-bias went out the window at least 4 years ago
@Captain Swordsman, yeah... because this article on St. Kitt's Island's geographical and demographic information I need for a project is *soooooooooo* biased lol
I'm not getting my news from Wikipedia and it's not like they're retroactively changing the history of the War of 1812 or any other major subject I use it for anyway lol.
60? Lol what is this 10 years ago
@Somervillage, more like 10 zeptoseconds ago
Their info is no longer invaluable. It stopped being worth something the instant they decided to have such a heavy political slant in favor of one side. Wikipedia now has no more value than your average news broadcast from CNN.
@ThatGuyx79, yeah how am I supposed to enjoy reading about the history of concrete with wikipedia's obvious bias?
@Donald Drumpf, they using that new trump concrete to build the wall
@RomeoStealYoGurl, it’s more effective at least
@ThatGuyx79, I had a significant drop of respect for Wikipedia after the whole “8645”. Political bias aside, its sketchy when definitions change moments after something is said. Like that of the definition of preference, politics has ruined solidarity to the point where we can’t even define things unless we create separate words for them in partisanship.
@fallingback09, yea I totally agree. How divided and tribal politics has become really makes normal like harder when you have one side that has a definition of something and the other side has a completely different definition of that same thing. Sh1t gets confusing and you will be put to the pyre if you can't keep up with the ever changing definitions and happen to use the wrong definition.
