Users will going to have different perception as far as donation button is concerned. Some might get offended and some may not.

So what you get it as ?

ah you should have mentioned that...
no i don't think it offends, infact few of the site i download stuff from, they get 1200$ per month (mostly) through donation, for there maintainence
A lot of them feel they get so much from a site, donating 1-2$ won't cost them anything...as they become so close to the community like we have it here.
if its there feel free to donate or not then i think its a good idea...even for this forum, i would be glad to donate if i am sure its secure...

It's rather difficult question to answer unless I know exactly what donate button is, how it functions and what it is intended for.

Lets say the big one right at the face of wiki at times or something similar.

i dont think that offends. Its just way for the webmaster to earn something to maintain the server or as a reward for daily bread. So i strongly believe donate button should be there. Even most of the users will like it because they feel that its a request not a compulsion.

So, there is nothing to feel offended.
