    [08:09 AM] Aphrodite Macbain: Thanks
    [08:09 AM] Wol Euler: not yet
    [08:09 AM] Sunshine Vayandar: yes thanks Aph ;)

    [08:09 AM] Eliza Madrigal: Did everyone have a chance to look at that?
    [08:09 AM] Wol Euler: hello riddle
    [08:09 AM] Sunshine Vayandar: hi Riddle ;)
    [08:09 AM] Agatha Macbeth: Hello rid
    [08:09 AM] Aphrodite Macbain: yw liza
    [08:09 AM] Aphrodite Macbain: Eliza
    [08:10 AM] Sunshine Vayandar: yes I read it
    [08:10 AM] Eliza Madrigal: Hi Riddle, we're going over donations for the moment :)
    [08:10 AM] Maxine Walden: yes, very clear and communicative

    [08:10 AM] Agatha Macbeth: Hey diddle diddle now we have Riddle
    [08:10 AM] Riddle Sideways: Hi everyBody
    [08:10 AM] Xirana Oximoxi: hi Riddle
    [08:10 AM] Eliza Madrigal: Aph, do you think you can summarize the points here for us, just briefly?
    [08:10 AM] Maxine Walden: hi, Riddle
    [08:11 AM] Aphrodite Macbain: Hi Pabbers! 
    Here is a gentle reminder that PaB depends on the support of it members. 

    For nearly three years Play as Being has graced the Second Life landscape. Its presence has been supported by private donations and funding from the Kira Institute. Now we are trying to make it more self-supporting from those who use PaB the most: the guardians and friends. Many of you give your time and effort and we really couldn't survive without all that wonderful voluntary help, but we still need a regular flow of cash, and if we all regularly gave a little we'd be in really good shape.

    How much does PaB need? Every 3 months, we need $800 (US) to pay for everything in the Bieup sim: the pavilion, the guardian plots, the Art as Being Dome, the Board and Conference Rooms, the Five Bells pub, the Sacred Art Museum and half (!) the Village Hall as well as for the hosting of our main wiki and other subsidiary wikis on our server.

    [08:11 AM] Aphrodite Macbain: my email!
    [08:11 AM] Eliza Madrigal: haha, Thanks!

    [08:12 AM] Aphrodite Macbain: How well have we been doing? We usually get in the high $300s but there's always a shortfall and that has to come out of our other funding (see Real Life Reserve Fund below.) So far this quarter we have raised $301.40

    What would it take to meet the $800 a quarter? We have approximately 60 guardians/friends. At the moment, the number of people who donate regularly financially is around 10-15% of that. But if everyone donated just $5US a month (or $15/quarter) PaB would be close to self supporting. If you value PaB and its wonderful offerings, please go to the Donations page on our Wiki and start a regular donation of at least $5 a month.

    The link is http://wiki.playasbeing.org/Donations

    Thank you to those who are already donating to PaB. These funds are very much appreciated! The land for the Kira Cafe and the other half of the PaB Village Hall comes from the current standing monthly donation. And we also have two very substantial quarterly donors who primarily pay for the Kira Institute infrastructure.

    [08:12 AM] Aphrodite Macbain: sure

    [08:12 AM] Eliza Madrigal: Thanks to everyone who has jumped in to make a recurring or other donation, and thanks Storm for installing the capability to donate $L at the pavilion board, yes yes yes!!
    [08:12 AM] Aphrodite Macbain: nuff said

    [08:13 AM] Eliza Madrigal: :::streamers:::: it is really nice to see this care for the community

    [08:14 AM] Sunshine Vayandar: Thanks Storm - I haven't looked yet - but will have a look
    [08:14 AM] Storm Nordwind: The last four quarters we have raised $575, $395, $630, $380 - which is very good. So far this quarter we are likely to reach $700 which will be a record, but still short of target.
    [08:14 AM] Aphrodite Macbain: It's easy to use and takes $ and L$

    [08:14 AM] Wol Euler: oh, it won't let me use paypal for recurring donations :( wants a credit card number
    [08:14 AM] Riddle Sideways: there are 3 methods of payment. Each take a percentage out. Could somebody summarize which takes the least?
    [08:14 AM] Aphrodite Macbain: I noticed that too Wol
    [08:15 AM] Aphrodite Macbain: I'm afraid I can't summarize

    [08:15 AM] Eliza Madrigal: ... that we may become self-sustaining. Wow, Storm, so just about $100 short of target the way things are going for this quarter?

    [08:15 AM] Eos Amaterasu: If you have a personal PayPal account which has money in it, the recurring donation will be taken out of that
    [08:15 AM] Wol Euler: no, I am on the paypal site right now. It wants a CC
    [08:15 AM] Eos Amaterasu: otherwise you need to identify a credit card
    [08:15 AM] Eliza Madrigal: hmm

    [08:16 AM] Aphrodite Macbain: We need $800 by the end of June and so far we have a little more than $300
    [08:16 AM] Storm Nordwind: In general, the larger the amount donated - singly or recurring - the small amount lost in fees.
    [08:16 AM] Wol Euler: (anyway, details, please continue)
    [08:16 AM] Eliza Madrigal: (apologies for chat lag, random lines soon to appear I think)
    [08:17 AM] Eliza Madrigal: I will re-log quickly
    [08:17 AM] Aphrodite Macbain waits for random lines to appear
    [08:17 AM] Sunshine Vayandar: kk Eliza

    [08:19 AM] Aphrodite Macbain: how's new York Wol?
    [08:19 AM] Agatha Macbeth pokes Wol
    [08:19 AM] Sunshine Vayandar pokes Wol also
    [08:19 AM] Wol Euler: sorry, was on paypal.
    [08:19 AM] Sunshine Vayandar: ;)
    [08:20 AM] Wol Euler: NY was fun, but I've been home for a few hours now

    [08:20 AM] Storm Nordwind: The very generous recurring donations monthly so allow us to predict a little better how we will do. :))

    [08:20 AM] Agatha Macbeth: Could be on worse things...
    [08:20 AM] Eos Amaterasu: You can set up PayPal to withdraw funds from your bank if PayPal balance won't cover a charge
    [08:20 AM] Aphrodite Macbain: great
    [08:20 AM] Eos Amaterasu: otherwise you give it a credit card from which to withdraw payments
    [08:21 AM] Sunshine Vayandar: wb Eliza ;)
    [08:21 AM] Wol Euler: I have 400€ in paypal, surely that would cover US$5 ..... :(
    [08:21 AM] Bruce Mowbray: wb, Eliza.
    [08:21 AM] Wol Euler: wb eliza
    [08:21 AM] Aphrodite Macbain: Nice dress Eliza
    [08:21 AM] Eos Amaterasu: Maybe they treat recurring payment diff
    [08:21 AM] Agatha Macbeth: wb Liz
    [08:21 AM] Maxine Walden: Should do. Wol, unless the EU economic defaults really take hold :)) !
    [08:22 AM] Aphrodite Macbain: It's really important to sort out the details of how these payments work
    [08:22 AM] Aphrodite Macbain: or dont work
    [08:22 AM] Riddle Sideways: what charge/cost if usign the donation page?
    [08:23 AM] Eliza Madrigal: apologies... I agree, the details are important. Is it a matter of international differences?
    [08:23 AM] Wol Euler: wb eliza
    [08:23 AM] Eliza Madrigal: ty :)
    [08:23 AM] Eliza Madrigal: (I'll appreciate someone filling in the text I missed into the log later)
    [08:24 AM] Aphrodite Macbain: The donation page on the wiki Riddle?
    [08:24 AM] Riddle Sideways: yes
    [08:24 AM] Aphrodite Macbain: Hello Stevenaia
    [08:24 AM] Maxine Walden: hi, Steve
    [08:24 AM] stevenaia Michinaga: waves
    [08:24 AM] Eliza Madrigal: Hi Stevenaia
    [08:24 AM] iwandertoo Resident: :)
    [08:24 AM] Agatha Macbeth: Hello Steve
    [08:24 AM] Aphrodite Macbain: maybe Storm or Eos can answer that Riddle
    [08:24 AM] Sunshine Vayandar: hi Stevie ;)
    [08:24 AM] Wol Euler: hello steve

    [08:25 AM] Riddle Sideways: could somebody summerize the charges with L$, PayPal or CC
    [08:25 AM] Eos Amaterasu is not sure how good he is at answering riddles
    [08:25 AM] Maxine Walden: :) Eos
    [08:25 AM] Aphrodite Macbain: :-)
    [08:25 AM] Riddle Sideways: it is a simple riddle
    [08:25 AM] Aphrodite Macbain: Hey Boxy!
    [08:25 AM] Agatha Macbeth: Woof woof Boxy
    [08:25 AM] Alfred Kelberry: :)
    [08:25 AM] Alfred Kelberry: wuff!
    [08:25 AM] iwandertoo Resident: :)
    [08:25 AM] Maxine Walden: hi, Alfred

    [08:25 AM] Eos Amaterasu: PayPal charges a bit for each transaction; the percentage charged declines with increasing amount
    [08:25 AM] Xirana Oximoxi: hi Boxy
    [08:26 AM] Sunshine Vayandar: wuff ;)
    [08:26 AM] boxy's nose: Yaku touches me lovingly
    [08:26 AM] Alfred Kelberry: hello everyone :)
    [08:26 AM] Eos Amaterasu: don't remember exact details
    [08:26 AM] boxy's nose: Aphrodite Macbain touches me lovingly
    [08:26 AM] Riddle Sideways: and so do the Lindens
    [08:26 AM] Aphrodite Macbain: lol
    [08:26 AM] boxy's nose: Wol Euler touches me gently
    [08:26 AM] Riddle Sideways: what payment gateway is behind the donation page?
    [08:26 AM] boxy's nose: Sun touches me gently
    [08:26 AM] Eos Amaterasu: PayPal

    [08:27 AM] Storm Nordwind: The charge that PayPal takes as transfer fee that PayPal takes $5pm, 8.2%, $10pm 6.2%, $20pm 3.7%, $30pm 3.2%. These seem to be approximate and they do change a little. The larger the donation, the smaller the charge.

    [08:27 AM] Riddle Sideways: ok, thank you
    [08:27 AM] Alfred Kelberry: i suggest wepay.com instead
    [08:27 AM] Wol Euler: no
    [08:27 AM] Wol Euler: sorry :)
    [08:27 AM] Alfred Kelberry: aka "paypal done right"

    [08:28 AM] Eos Amaterasu: Will look into it, boxy, but as usual cost of change needs evaluating vis a vis benefits
    [08:29 AM] Agatha Macbeth: Yep

    [08:29 AM] Eliza Madrigal: yes, perhaps we should take these issues brought up and try to get them sorted in the days ahead... including looking at other services
    [08:29 AM] Eos Amaterasu: punt to WG

    [08:29 AM] Storm Nordwind: Trust and credibility from a track record of any service are also part of the equation

    [UPDATE: Post-session Eos looked into this option and sent an email to the guardian group:

    At today's guardian meeting WePay was suggested as an alternative to PayPal for handling PaB donations.
    However,
    https://www.wepay.com/Does-WePay-allow-international-non-US-payments
    Q:Does WePay allow international (non-US) payments?
    A:Not right now, but we hope to soon.

    https://www.wepay.com/Can-I-use-WePay-in-Canada
    Q:Can I use WePay in Canada?
    A:No
    WePay is only available in the United States. We hope to expand soon though, so keep your eyes peeled!

    So, not quite there yet, Eos ]

    [08:29 AM] Aphrodite Macbain: Given the number of complexities of donating, I wonder whether someone would anyone be willing to create a new wiki page that goes into detail of all the ways to donate, answering all the questions that are arising here?
    [08:29 AM] Eliza Madrigal: :))
    [08:30 AM] Eliza Madrigal: its a good question... Bruce and I will add that to the wg agenda...

    [08:31 AM] Storm Nordwind: PayPal is also behind the L$ donation, because L$ donated go to an SL account and is paid out to a PayPal account.

                     (I get stuck again)

    [08:31 AM] boxy's nose: Bruce touches me playfully
    [08:31 AM] Eliza Madrigal: ac...
    [08:31 AM] boxy's nose: Xirana touches me gently
    [08:31 AM] Xirana Oximoxi: :)
    [08:31 AM] boxy's nose: Aggers touches me persistently
    [08:32 AM] boxy's nose: Eos Amaterasu touches me playfully
    [08:32 AM] boxy's nose: Wol Euler touches me playfully
    [08:32 AM] Alfred Kelberry: :P
    [08:32 AM] Storm Nordwind has a dog biscuit for Boxy
    [08:32 AM] Xirana Oximoxi: hahaha
    [08:32 AM] Alfred Kelberry: *has a bone*
    [08:32 AM] Agatha Macbeth: It's a dog's life
    [08:32 AM] Xirana Oximoxi: it's so fun:)

    [08:32 AM] Aphrodite Macbain: ok Eliza we'll discuss it further at the next WG meeting
    [08:33 AM] Sunshine Vayandar: Eliza is gone again
    [08:33 AM] Bruce Mowbray: Yes, I already have it in the agenda for w/g

    [08:33 AM] Aphrodite Macbain: It might be great if Storm could attend that one
    [08:33 AM] Storm Nordwind makes no promises
    [08:33 AM] Eos Amaterasu: Storm is not a politician
    [08:33 AM] Aphrodite Macbain: :-)

    [08:37 AM] Eos Amaterasu wonders if Boxy always had breasts and he just never noticed

    [08:42 AM] Aphrodite Macbain: Is that a promise Storm, like the one offered earlier?
    [08:43 AM] Riddle Sideways: maybe
    [08:43 AM] Eos Amaterasu: the sound of one drip dropping
    [08:43 AM] Xirana Oximoxi: it can make a wonderful concert too:)
