Re: [css-56] Meetup Renewal is due Today - Can you donate?

To say that 372 members paying $1 each would cover the annual cost of a meetup + "some to spare" is rather disingenuous.  An organizer typically pays $12/month (for 6 months = $72) for 3 meetup groups.  I call that a lot more than "some to spare".

Having said that, I agree with all the arguments for staying with Meetup - but please, let's get real about the actual Meetup costs.

Thank you for the offer but there are several reasons why this group is kept on meet-up even though many of our members are "in the business" and have servers as well as development skills.  Managing this group takes more time than you might think which is one reason that there have been change in leadership several times in the last few years.  In addition, meet-up has a following and tools to make it easy for perspective new members to locate us. That discoverability is one of the primary ways this group gets members. We currently have 372 members. If each member contributed $1 we would have more than the annual cost of a meet-up with some to spare for some giveaways or in person events.

Hello Ingrid and to all...

I know this would help... but I also know that what I am about to suggest might ruffle some feathers.

I am a graphic designer / web developer, who also owns a web hosting company.

I would be willing to donate web server space  and development time... so that this group can have its own "fully social website."

For This group, that would translate...into  Unlimited Flexibility, Unlimited Growth... and best of all  ZERO Cost per month!

I know that this could be helpfully so my only question is... if this could be of interest to the group...

Please feel free to reply back to me directly
