Personally, I have never heard of the GiveButter fundraising platform -- it is not one of the platforms that I've seen ever mentioned on the TechSoup forums. However, it might interest you to know that several months ago Tech Impact published their 2020 edition of the consumer's guide to low-cost fundraising software. You might find that resource helpful in helping you decide on a platform as it compares 23 different solutions.

However, I'm a bit older than Wikipedia...  Wikipedia is the largest virtual volunteering effort in the world, but it took a long time to get them to call their Wikipedians "volunteers." I would go in and edit their page about their contributors to say "volunteer" at least once, and then link that to their own page about volunteering, as a topic, and some Wikipedian would then edit right back out. Someone finally relented.  I am an online volunteer with Wikipedia. Here is my user page . And here are all my Wikipedia contributions  (more than 500 - I was bored). Forum Post: DAM/MAM/CMS for all content type including large 4k Videohttp://dev.drgbl.net/?id=cs/community/f/20/t/47204.aspxFri, 15 Jan 2021 15:48:00 GMTcaa7681b-025a-49ce-809f-7435bfe4d232:ef1c428e-b31e-415e-90dd-da53b95e2ea7klondon I have been tasked with finding the very best and cost effective solution for our content organization and management. I have found separate solutions, but am wondering if a single one place solution exists. In short, my new place of work has not organized their content in any way and is using cloud storage that doesn't offer an opportunity to place tags etc onto the content. In addition, no folder structure or file naming conventions have been used.  We have a wide variety of content types, images, audio, video, documents, camera raw files, Adobe Design files and a few other miscellaneous ones. The company now has over 50TB of content which as you can imagine is no less than a nightmare trying to locate content. I am seeking not only a platform that can deal with this disorganization and provide a great place to home this content, but also one that can manage our large video content as well. I have been running a fantastic demo with a solution from Canto, they tick every single box except for the video one. For video we have a large amount of raw footage from 4k cameras, single 20-30 minute videos reaching 200-250GB in size. I'd like to find a solution that can compress these videos on upload to save on storage space used but also allow for the full original file in its full quality along with other resolutions being offered as download options.  60% of the files would be embedded externally for public to stream, although this is a select number of people this needs to be available. Other tools we are seeking but not deal breakers are transcription of files (audio, video), machine intelligent tagging, manual tagging, ability to relate files together i.e. photos of event to video of event. Does such a tool exist that can deal with the large amount of video file along with a fantastic platform to store, organize and locate our other content as well? I'd love to hear your thoughts, ideas. I should also add, this needs to be extremely user friendly on the UI front.... no windows system, drive mapping etc.  We are fully remote, no central hub, everything is based in and needs to remain in cloud.

The success of Wikipedia and the community based model that it is built on is one of the great achievments of the twenty first century. When I was growing up the then distant twenty first century was predicted to see the widespread use of domestic robots and flying cars... well I am happier to see the creation of an online encylopedia that is free to access world wide with an Internet connection. The English edition of Wikipedia has grown to 6,229,642 articles, equivalent to around 2,800 print volumes of the Encyclopædia Britannica. Including all language editions, Wikipedia has 55,615,111 articles, equivalent to around 20,900 print volumes. Wikipedia's worldwide monthly readership is approximately 495 million.[7] Worldwide in September 2018, WMF Labs tallied 15.5 billion page views for the month. According to comScore, Wikipedia receives over 117 million monthly unique visitors from the United States alone. You can read the full story here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Wikipedia Wikipedia is fantastic, not just for serious stuff, also for answering those bizarre questions that come up at unexpected moments. One of my questions was 'hey, why don't dolphins drown when they go to sleep?', the answer is stranger than you might think. What is your strangest question to wikipedia ?

For Windows 10 in our catalog we only offer the Windows operating system upgrade or the Get genuine and as you mention both do not apply. Unfortunately those are the only two we offer, those two are for Window systems and we do not have something for Mac. Only a few suites and single applications are for Mac under the Microsoft section but that is what I could find for that. Perhaps checking with our Cloud service provider to see if Microsoft 365 might be an option since it works for both Windows and Mac.

Applications addressing challenges related to disability outside of the themes specified above are also welcome, the grant-makers said.
