Netizens found a banner asking for funds when they visited the most popular site-Wikipedia.

There’s been a black and yellow banner with capital letters reading ‘DEAR WIKIPEDIA READERS…’ and a kind of request message wrote to acquire funds to run the website. Surprisingly, Wikipedia reports its net assets in excess of $77 million which is actually much to fund the site.

Core editors of Wikipedia want clarity of the flow of money. Other employees also had raised questions on why the Wikimedia foundation asks for funds and how it is re-distributed.
