The act of asking for funds on an established Internet site with mostly user-generated content, such as YouTube, especially if one has not produced much quality content.
The widely-viewed atheist Thunderf00t's attempt to ask for financial support from his subscribers on YouTube drew accusations of ebegging.

E-begging is when some pretentious asshole (usually on Youtube) decides to solicit "donations" from his or her audience. Sometimes they try to hide their e-begging under the guise of elaborate "movie projects" on sites like indiegogo.com with laughable incentives like "Donate 100.00 and get your name in the credits" ... The irony is that most of these youtube "movies" made cost only a fraction of the donations received. The e-beggar then pockets the rest as profit and then laughs all the way to the bank. E-begging preys on stupid people and fanboys mostly. If you aren't a complete sheep, you won't be fooled by e-beggars.
E-BEGGING: "HAY GUYS IM DOING A MOVIE PROJECT PLZ DONATE 100.00 TO ME IF U DO I'LL PUT UR NAME IN TEH CREDITS."
