I agree that including the donation amount seems weird, but it's public information, and I think it's relevant that they support Sesame Workshop. The Annual Report (PDF) lists all donors under the more friendly name "Major Supporters." I think rewording it to use that language would be more appropriate. -- Peter (talk) 14:14, 27 June 2008 (UTC)
- It just feels weird and unbalanced on individual people's pages. It's pretty typical for celebrity pages to have one sentence on their life and work, and then a description of what they've done with the Muppets. Including the fact that they gave money to Sesame Workshop in one particular year feels weirdly unbalanced to me. It feels a bit like the lead paint recall information that was added on a lot of toy pages... Just because something is true and public information doesn't necessarily mean that we want to have it in the articles.
- If we want the information on the wiki, then I think it would be better to have a section on Sesame Workshop listing the donors that have pages, or a separate page for the Annual Report. Having one list of donors feels fine to me; having the info on twelve different article pages feels weird. -- Danny (talk) 14:33, 27 June 2008 (UTC)
- Nick added the info way back, as he did about the lead recall. I agree, I don't think it helps this or other articles, and the annual report site is linked from the Sesame Workshop page as is. My own feeling, if it's needed at all, would be a trivia note on that page listing some of the celebrity donors and so on. Andrew Leal (talk) 15:16, 27 June 2008 (UTC)
