Why is AdBlock blocking Wikimedia Deutschlands Fundraising ad?

Reaching the German version of Wikipedia a fundraising is going on. The problem is, the ad isn't visible using AdBlock.

For Wikipedia as a free project, isn't this a mistake?

    Hi Lony,

    1. Go to AdBlock button -> Options -> SUPPORT -> "Have our team requested some debug info?" and paste it into this discussion.
    2. Go to the FILTER LISTS tab. Does clicking "update now" fix the problem?
    3. Uncheck all filter lists on the same page and reload the page with the problem. Does the problem disappear?
      • If unchecking all filter lists fixes the problem, which one filter list must you check to cause the problem again after another reload? (make sure to wait for it to fetch the filter first)

    Hi!

    What do you mean? Neelfyn asked some questions, and you didn't respond to them. What were you trying to say?

    You are right, sorry.

    The problem was the Fanboy Annoyances filter :(

    Thanks for your help!

    Sounds like this is caused by the Fanboy's Annoyances filter! If you'd like, you can let them know about this issue directly. The contact info can be found here.
