The usual error message in the event of a major problem on Wikimedia wikis contains the phrase
The Wikimedia Foundation is a non-profit organisation which hosts some of the most popular sites on the Internet, including Wikipedia. It has a constant need to purchase new hardware. If you would like to help, please donate.
If all wikis are down, this link, being a link to a wiki page, breaks, meaning that what's presumably one of the more convincing calls to fundraise just doesn't work.
I'm not sure how fixable this problem is, but it would be nice to link to something more likely to stay up.
