Mvertigo still needs to pay its bills.
I was recently approached by someone wishing to advertise their services on mvertigo.
We agreed an initial subscription based agreement for such advertising.
I’m in the process of implementing that.
At the same time, given I will need to add a Subscription system, I’m thinking of adding a voluntary membership scheme that may initially not offer any benefit except a show of support via a avatar flair that will be added to your account as “Supporter”. Perks may or may not be added later - if anyone has some ideas on that please respond below.
This will be priced at a very small amount (I’m conscious this condition can significantly affect people’s finances!), but the combined contributions will help with all the IT costs and some of my time (though I doubt I will ever get anything approaching a commercial hourly rate nor expect to achieve that!!).
The costs involved here include:
- domain registration
- server leasing
- email service
- API calls, e.g. Open AI provide our Topic summaries.
- IT development and customisation
Let me know if you would be interested in contributing in this fashion.
And as a reminder, contribution can always be made in other ways by actively responding to other sufferers - this is always appreciated!
NB I’ve had one member mention they’d be keen to donate but dislike PayPal - FYI the new system will be based on Stripe.
