|If you are thinking about donating to UnAnswers, or the UnAnswers Foundation, here's the page to do it.|
Where does my money go? Edit
When you donate to UnAnswers, your money will go directly into the pockets of the admins that
need want it the most.
Is the UnAnswers Foundation a charity? Edit
No. The UnAnswers Foundation doesn't exist, therefore it isn't a charity.
Why should I donate to the UnAnswers Foundation? Edit
The job of the UnAnswers Foundation is to provide
correct "special" answers to questions. How can we possibly do that without your help? (Very easily, but that's not the point.)
What are your plans? Where is this going? Edit
As the organization's founder, A F K When Needed, put it: "Imagine a world in which every single question can freely be answered by
morons anyone with an internet connection." That’s where it’s going — and we need your help to get there.
Every month, more than 12 people around the world use UnAnswers[Citation needed]. It's available online, on your mobile device, on DVD, in books, on your Television, inside your fridge and through a telepathic network of bacteria that live on raw chicken, (actually, we lied, it's only available online, but that sounds really cool, doesn't it?). We aspire to reach even more people (14, 15 - perhaps even 16 by 2020?), and to continually degrade the quality of information that we provide. To do that, we are:
- making it much easier to contribute UnAnswers. Look, we've got a new skin! No, the fact that it's actually harder to use isn't the point.
- creating learning and training resources to recruit more contributors? Not on your life!
- developing new technologies and processes for quality assurance that do not conflict with UnAnswers' fundamental openness? Nope, we're too lazy.
- consulting with our global community of editors as well as experts, volunteers and thinkers around the world to develop innovative strategies for reaching more people, with higher quality resources, and for increasing the number of volunteers? Never!
Finally, it is our mission to protect the work that has been done so far. Wikia does backups, so that's good enough.
After all that money's been spent on UnAnswers, any remaining cash will be split between the sysop team, as our budget doesn't involve uses for the money, it's going in our pockets.
How do you balance keeping UnAnswers open with making it more reliable? Edit
Keeping it open ensures that it will never be reliable.
How much money are you hoping to raise? Edit
Well, AFK needs a new keyboard (so he's not AFK all the time), RT wants a shiny mouse, Yallow wants a novel and El Nazgir wants a pair of 3D glasses, so about $7.50 United States Dollars.
Who else is supporting you in this goal? Edit
Where can I learn more about your recent activities? Edit
How do I donate? Edit
Send a cheque to:
- The UnAnswers Foundation
- 17-25 New Inn Yard
- London EC2A 3EA
Can I make a stock donation to the UnAnswers Foundation? Edit
Go ahead! We need something to make our gravy with.
Are my donations tax-deductible? Edit
Yup, all you need to do is write I DONATED TO UNANSWERS in capital letters on your tax form, and your local tax office should sort it out. If you don't get the tax break, it's because you didn't write it large enough.
Can I give you a targeted or restricted donation to be used for something very specific? Edit
Yes, if by "something very specific" you mean "exactly what we wanted to use it for in the first place".
We are serious about protecting the privacy rights of our donors. Seriously not bothered.
