I like exploring the internet and when using google and typing word definition, learning about several stuff, I often found a link of where is the information is found: wikipedia. Upon going to that website, something new has happened on the top of the page:

DEAR READERS: Wikipedia's job is to bring the sum total of all human knowledge to everyone around the world. To stay ad-free and independent of bias, we ask Wikipedia readers to pitch in. We survive on donations averaging about $15. Now is the time we ask. If everyone reading this right now gave $3, our fundraiser would be done within an hour. If Wikipedia is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online and ad-free another year. Please help us forget fundraising and get back to Wikipedia. Thank you.
I'm worried, what happens if this fails? Is wikipedia gunna "die"?
Is other countries (like google) and other wikis not depend on wikipedia if its down?
I heard some schools that encounter the wikipedia blackout (by sopa a long time ago) and have to go to the library to find info because they can't use the website, so they are depend on wikipedia. I'm very worried that if i need answers on something, wikipedia is not there.
I know some people says its not a reliable source but its an opionion.
Some of the information is true.
Give thanks to RPG hacker for working on Asar.
