  2. Great! Can you fill out the form and send it to me with all the receipts? @Itms Thanks!
  3. Although Erik and I are in favor, I will still tag @MishFTW one more time. --- In the mean time, I am attaching a link to SPI's reimbursement request form: http://www.spi-inc.org/treasurer/SPI_reimbursement_request.pdf Unfortunately there is a USD 22 charge for outgoing wire transfers charged by SPI's international payment system, so it is best to minimize the number of transfers. I suggest we reimburse one participant for the FOSDEM expenses and that person would then transmit the money to the other participants with their respective shares.
  4. In previous events where all the travel was within Europe, the treasury committee has given sums of about EUR 150 per participant, plus about EUR 100 for promotional materials. This request for EUR 462.80 is well in line with this rough rule of thumb, given the large number of 0 A.D. delegates at FOSDEM this year, which stands at five. I also think our fiscal situation allows for this "ad hoc" expense. We have about USD 28,000, with about USD 1,000 spent every year on hosting. (In terms of Euros, those sums are equivalent to about EUR 23,000 and about EUR 800 respectively.) Until we do build a budget, I think we should reimburse the attendees. Therefore, I vote in favor of this proposal. @feneur @MishFTW
  5. Thanks for the wonderful write-up, @Itms ! You definitely make a compelling case for attending FOSDEM this year and in the future. I just wish to verify that you have receipts for everything. SPI will not reimburse you otherwise.

    Hopefully SPI can have a look into this next week.
  7. Can you help me on my latest post?

    I agree with your feedback and I suggest that you improve the tutorial for Alpha 23, @sphyrth. You have a knack for explaining things simply and concisely.
  9. Hi @andy5995, I have obtained a confirmation. Please check the the e-mail address associated with your PayPal account.
  10. Thanks for your donation, @andy5995! My name is Aviv and I am a member of the 0 A.D. Treasury Committee. I agree that a confirmation e-mail is in order. I believe that people who donate using Click&Pledge get one automatically, but donors who use PayPal might not. Unfortunately, we cannot see donations or directly issue confirmations. Software in the Public Interest, Inc. (SPI) handles the donations for us and only they have direct access to our financial data. If you can kindly provide the sum donated, the e-mail address associated with your PayPal account, and date of donation, I will gladly ask SPI to confirm that the sum was donated. You can do this via private message if you prefer. I apologize in advance as it could take quite some time to get any response from SPI. Last but not least, I have made a new thread in the announcements forum with a copy of the financial report. I have also edited the link in the news post so that it now points there. I thought the treasury committee forum was open to the public. Thanks for letting me know otherwise.
  11. In the interest of transparency, the Wildfire Games team would like to report on the finances of the project as of 2017-03-31. Until 2016-12, 0 A.D. had funds in three places: Funds earmarked for the project and held in trust by US-based non-profit organization Software in the Public Interest, Inc. (hereafter "SPI"); A PayPal account under the name of former project leader, Jason Bishop (Wijitmaker). This account was a legacy of the time before we became affiliated with SPI; An account on Flattr, a Sweden-based microdonation provider. SPI Earmark for 0 A.D. As of 2017-01-01, the 0 A.D. earmark is USD 29,528.35 (Source: SPI Treasurer's Report). Other Accounts In our "legacy" PayPal account, we had USD 366.30 on 2016-11-30. This sum was consolidated with the SPI earmark in December 2016 and is probably reflected in the account balance mentioned above. We will not be using this account anymore and we have duly removed the references to it from the donation page. On Flattr, we have EUR 842.14 available, which are approximately USD 900. We have removed the references to Flattr account from the donation page and we intend to consolidate these funds with the SPI earmark in the near future. Total In total, we have approximately 30,428.35 USD. Concluding Remarks The 0 A.D. project finances are managed by the Treasury Committee: Erik (“feneur”), Adarash ("MishFTW") and Aviv (“Jeru”). We welcome your comments and suggestions in this thread.

  13. @Itms can you please add "L’association L’Informatique Solidaire – Desclicks" To the donor list? I got a request from a donor over email. Thanks!

    I have changed the donation page as per @xanax's suggestion. Thanks for this very valuable and constructive feedback! I have also deleted the references to the legacy PayPal account and to Flattr from the donation page, as we have decided to consolidate all the funds into the SPI earmark anyway.
