RationalWiki's 2018 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 seeing this today donates $5, we will meet our goal for 2018.

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: $3630Goal: $5000

Totally unaccaptable?

One of our top 100 editors has only ever made 1 mainspace edit. That is completely unacceptable, even for us.
Why is this unacceptable? Who says it is unacceptable? Is there some sort of guideline?

No, that is just me talking to myself. In case you haven't noticed I attach numbers to everything. It is part of my OCD.

There's a lot of legitimate RW activity outside the mainspace. The SB is in the RW space, as are the WIGOs, and then there's Conservapedia, debate, forum and the talk pages. I don't think it's as much of a problem. I'd be very concerned about the site's sustainability if it was most of the top 100 hadn't touched the mainspace, but other than that, it's not a problem.

Did you read my list? I updated it for February. It is quite interesting. Of course mainspace isn't the only useful place on the wiki (otherwise we wouldn't be calling Mei useful). And I am not in favor of deleting(even if we could) WIGO:CP. I'm just concerned about the future of the wiki, that is all.
