This is a Proposal for putting Advertisments in High-Traffic pages


I think that if you put advertisments in high traffic pages it could mean money for Wikimedia


Advertisments on certain sites

Key Questions

Do we have enough space or bandwidth?

Will users want to have advertisements?

If there was a serious chance of this happening would we face a further exodus of editors, as happened in 2002 when en:Enciclopedia Libre Universal en Español was set up because of talk of advertising on the site?

Potential Costs

virtually nil

  • Loss of reputation, loss of neutrality, another split in the community
