Hi John, thank you for the feedback. The banners you see are continually changing, as we refine our designs based on feedback and efficacy. Donation banners are inherently disruptive, on any site. We try to minimize the annoyance whilst also maximizing the effectiveness in order to show as few banners as possible. It's a difficult balance, and feedback like yours, and the emails and comments we get from readers, help us out over time.
If you don’t want to see fundraising banners, there are a few options: You can login to Wikipedia, or click the "close" button in a banner, or visit our donor thank you page. If you're browsing in a private-window, this means the browser cannot remember (save in a cookie) that you clicked "close" or saw the banner already, hence you might be seeing more banners than most readers would. Thanks again, Nick  https://donate.wikimedia.org/wiki/Thank_You On Mon, May 4, 2020 at 7:56 AM John Erling Blad <jeb...@gmail.com> wrote: > Often I surf Wikipedia without being logged in, and so I did right now.
