RationalWiki's 2020 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2021.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Donations so far: $2120Goal: $3500

This is the RationalWiki "Help Desk". If you have a technical question or problem, start a new section on the talk page. Good, complete answers to FAQs should be saved in sub-files and linked from here.

Note: Some abilities are not available to anonymous and/or new editors. This is because we (the mob) are mean and want to dilute the actions of potential wandals. Reducing the abilities of such persons or bots also reduces the workload on hard-pressed sysops. Complaints may be addressed to anyone at all, 'cause nobody will do anything about it.

Editing articles

  • How can I start editing? To edit an article click on the edit tab or, if there is one, click on the [edit] link at the side of the particular section header (this makes it easier to find when dealing with long articles or talk pages).
  • Can I test my editing skills? Here's a sandbox to play around in.


Specific subjects


If you have any questions, please go to the talk page and create a new section.
