Things are getting bad with the Wikimedia Foundation.
Wikipedia depends on its community but now that community may stand in its way. Or is it the other way around and the community is Wikipedia?

I wrote LeGarrette Blount's Wikipedia bio in 2009 (he was a star running back for the Oregon Ducks football team) and asked a photographer I found through Flickr to release a photo of Blount under a free license, to illustrate the article.

Read on for a short case study in how it can pay off to put some work into a Wikipedia article.

This girl's family badly needs to give her a proper sendoff. They have not had much good news in the last couple weeks. A few dollars, a reshare, or just your sympathy and positive thoughts or prayers would make a big difference to them and to me -- thank you for any help you can give.
