Unfortunately, no "top" ads means a lot less revenue which will hurt content growth as wikis have costs (i.e. website hosting, software packages, etc.).
We hope that gaining some generous patrons (even a dollar is a great help) will allow us to partially offset the decline in advertising revenue. However, if we can't gain 20 patrons by Christmas, we will have to rethink the lack of large ads as Amazon affiliate links don't cover the bills.
New patrons = More content. We hope you become a wiki patron!
