    Donations via Liberapay

    Please see the discussion here. TL;DR: We work with a fiscal sponsor called "Software in the Public Interest" (SPI). That makes life easier for us in many ways, because they handle bureaucratic matters for us (e.g., taxes). But we can only accept donations in the ways they specify. And Liberapay is not part of those.

    Patreon.

    Then that is a matter for the team to decide how to regulate.

    Patreon.

    For 0 A.D. to receive recurring donations via Patreon? I need confirmation from SPI that this is an acceptable way for them to handle donations for 0 A.D. I can ask, but I must warn you that the answer will probably be: "No, we will only accept donations using the methods detailed on our website." --- For 0 A.D. to receive recurring donations via PayPal? Nothing. This option is already available.

    Patreon.

    I think it is, because if you click here: http://spi-inc.org/projects/0ad/ And then on "Donate," you get a form with an option that says "Make this a monthly donation".

    Fund consolidation

    Michael Schultheiss, SPI treasurer, wrote me yesterday:

    Patreon.

    IIRC that was Liberapay's problem with its own payment processor; My concern is that SPI doesn't work with Patreon (yet). It can accept small (and perhaps recurring) donations through PayPal, for example. No problem.

    Patreon.

    It simplifies matters in one way but complicates matters in other ways. It can easily turn into a competition between developers for funds. I don't think this bodes well for cooperation and collaboration on this project
  8. In HTML there is a way to wrap in-line opposite-direction phrases in markup to get everything look the way it should.
  9. If it is made online it should be in a wiki, either on the existing Trac system, on Github Pages (e.g., Jekyll docs) or on Read the Docs.
  10. In the interest of transparency, the Wildfire Games team would like to report on the finances of the project as of 2018-09-08. 0 A.D. has funds in two places: Funds earmarked for the project and held in trust by US-based non-profit organization Software in the Public Interest, Inc. (hereafter "SPI"); An account on Flattr, a Sweden-based microdonation provider. SPI Earmark for 0 A.D. As of 2018-01-01, the 0 A.D. earmark is USD 31,283.40 USD (Source: SPI Treasurer's Report). Unfortunately, more recent data are still unavailable. Other Accounts On Flattr, we have EUR 885.28 and USD 1.96 available, which are approximately USD 1,025. We have asked SPI to help us consolidate these funds with the SPI earmark. Total In total, we have approximately 32,308.40 USD. Concluding Remarks The 0 A.D. project finances are managed by the Treasury Committee: Erik (“feneur”) and Aviv (“Jeru”). Earlier this year, Adarash ("MishFTW") stepped down from the committee after almost four years of service. Thank you so much for your contribution, Adarash! It's been a pleasure and a privilege to have you on the committee. We welcome your comments and suggestions on the management of 0 A.D. finances.
  11. Thanks for noticing and letting us know. We hope to make a new website soon, which will provide less detailed information about the factions and be easier to maintain.

    Fund consolidation

    Now we have EUR 885.28 and we are down to 2 Flattrs per month, one from each giver. Each one is donating USD 0.01-0.03 per month. --- Today I sent SPI another reminder about this task. It's been over a year since my original e-mail.

    Alpha 24 name suggestions

    I second Xerxes or Xšayaṛša
  14. Great! Can you fill out the form and send it to me with all the receipts? @Itms Thanks!
  15. 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.
