Deskthority club - founding members poll

Unread post by webwit » 10 Sep 2013, 22:42

Deskthority is transforming itself into a club, so we have a healthy structure to pay for our hosting costs, keep the forum and wiki up into the future, and to conquer the world. Read more about that here:
http://deskthority.net/deskthority-rela ... t6449.html

My question is: do you want to be a founding member?

Note that the purpose of this is to have a budget for our founding costs, and to support the club's initial budget. It would be a one-time payment, but I propose this makes you member for a year without additional costs, if wanted, after the club is founded.

We also need to establish the yearly costs of contribution for members once the club is running, where I target something between 10 and 20 EUR, but this is a separate discussion from these one-time founding donations. Note that deskthority will be an open club, you don't need to be a club member to participate (it remains as it is now), you can see it like a gold membership.

Option 3 for me for sure. Any idea yet what kind of a timeframe we are looking at for this?

I like to keep things moving fast, but depends on how much work on the statutes, if we need non-standard statutes translated into English by notary (so we have them in Dutch and English), and when I can match a free spot on Mrinterface's agenda, mine and the notary's. Maybe two weeks. Maybe a month. If it takes a bit longer... it doesn't matter. Our world rule is inevitable. ;)

Nice to see most prospective founding members will be funding members as well.

Seeing how short on money I am, now that I got my driver's license, I couldn't afford more than 30€. But that I'm willing to pay.

Option 3 for me.

A good forum with marketplace and a wiki are always worth to be paid for me.

Option 3, w/o a doubt.

The voting should have been made public, to put some of the cheapskates here under pressure!

But I can't afford more :(

I would gladly pay more, but I still need to get and pay for the trailer license, and my bank account is at 50€…

No need to! No one needs to break the bank. Seems we will cover the initial costs just fine. 8-) And you need that trailer, because otherwise, where would you store your keyboards?

Just goes to show how behind I am

Option 2

Or option 3 if I can start a private wiki.
