RationalWiki's 2019 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 2019.

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: $6000Goal: $6000
Information icon.svg The 2018 moderator election has started! We are electing 6 moderators and 2 alternatives to serve in 2019. Nominate users here and read their campaign slogans here!

This page offers information on how to obtain complete content dumps of RationalWiki for backup or for forking the project at other locations.

Most of the content at RationalWiki is released under the CC-BY-SA 3.0 license, which means it is freely available for reuse by anyone as long as any modifications are released under the same or similar license and credit is given to RationalWiki as the source. Image copyrights are contained within the XML dump - many images in the tarball are fair use, so don't reuse them out of context unless you know what you're doing. For complete licensing information refer to RationalWiki:Copyrights.

While manual replication of content is easiest for a few pages only, content dumps are ideal for complete replication of the site or for content backup.

User:David Gerard will get these onto archive.org at some point, so please regard the above links as strictly temporary. archive.org will also get anonymised page hit logs from the Squid servers, so someone with too much time on their hands can make nice graphs and stuff.
