How much do you think Wikipedia is worth?
Wikipedia has become an increasingly indispensable source of information fo many people. What once started as a small project by a handfull of enthusiasts are now, seven years later, one of the ten most visited websites on the Internet. More than 200 million readers visit Wikipedia at least once a month. Every day Wikipedia grows a little and attracts new readers. To meet these increasing demands we need your financial support. Wikipedias infrastructure is run by a non-profit charitable organisation, Wikimedia Foundation who depends on donations of money and oter forms of support to survive. Wikipedia has for example now advertising but lots of expenses in form of servers, bandwith, and technical staff. In Sweden there is the non-profit organisation Wikimedia Sverige whose purpose is to support the Wikimedia projects with different prrojects and activities locally.
Help us raise the quality on WikipediaWikipedia Academy, librarians, teachers and journalists we hope to start a dialogue to enhance the content in Wikipedia. Together we develop solutions to check the quality on the content of the articles. It wll take some time, and also money. What we are up to.
Help more to learn how Wikipedia works
The best way to enhance the quality on Wikipedia is to increase the number of users. To do that Wikimedia Sverige is arranging classes, workshops and making educational material. To give more people the oppurtunity; high school teachers, retired people, immigrants - we don't need just money. We need people who can help us informing about Wikpedia. Show your interest.
Wikimedia Foundation also runs seven sisterprojects to Wikipedia: Wikinews, Wiktionary, Wikiquote, Wikimedia Commons, Wikiversity, Wikispecies and Meta-Wiki. They are also a part of Wikimedia Sverige's area. We will be more than happy to show you how these projects works. Se fr example Wikimedia Commons, the free media repository.
Help us to support the writers of Wikipedia
To raise the quality we support the writers of Wikipedia, mainly by prizes to article creation contests. A prize for a well written article can do miracles by increasing the commitment amongst our many good article creators.
