Hey there,
I'm done assembling the 2019 statistics and am once more sharing the traditional annual wikiloops transparency report with you today - here it is:

For those who may not be familiar with these papers - the whole idea of keeping wikiloops transparent towards its users is to share the miracle of how wikiloops has survived on little budget and lots of volunteer love over the years, and to motivate people like you to join the rather small circle of people who financially support this musical wonderland called wikiloops.

Thank you for your interest in what is going on behind the scenes of wikiloops and any feedback you might want to give &
greetings from the wikiloops engine room

Thanks as always for your report, Richard.

I thought we were closer to a break-even, so let me take this chance here to ask all of our members and fellow musicians who care about this platform or who even love it to continue supporting it if possible.

And thanks to everyone - also to those who can't send any money into it - for making 2019 a really great experience, even without a Wikiloops members' meeting (to which I'm really looking forward again).

Thanks a bunch for your hard work on wikiloops my friend ! It's been quite the trip this year ...

it somewhat saddens me that the reports states a loss of 18% of supporters !! ôÔ that means almost 100 members (85) didn't renew their supporting member status !

That also means we all owe you and your family twice as much thanks and congratz to keep the loops going still at your own expenses ... so THANK YOU !!!

Thanks for this report, much appreciated and thanks for keeping this project alive. I admire your perseverance and indefatigability, any lesser person would have packed it in a long time ago. It seems wrong on so many moral levels that a true and honest social project, one that does not try to sell you anything but gives us so much joy, one that does not try to shove an agenda down your throat but brings out the best in people, one that brings so much joy to so many people from all corners of the world without causing others harm can't keep itself balanced financially. For me it's a bit of a sad situation that there are people here who upload virtually hundreds of tracks but can't be bothered to put in a few dollars so it won't need Dick to finance this from his own pocket. I keep repeating this all the time, we are so lucky to have Wikiloops, we are lucky to have this great community and great music, so thank you Dick and bless all Loopers - let's do all we can to keep this ship floating for many more years <3
