EGLUG finances

Alaa's picture

its time to reveal the biggest secret of all, EGLUG's finances and off shore bank accounts will all be revealed read on.

joking aside the only real costs associated with EGLUG concern the website hosting and domain name which is supposed to be covered by the admins. this is an attempt to document whats been paid since december 2004 and to nefde7 those who don't pay regularly.

before december 2004

Alaa paid the hosting and then collected the money from the admins

From december 2004 to february 2005

we figured the VPS resources will split to 3, one third for Alaa, one third for MohammedSameer, and one third for EGLUG, however since we where already paying large chunks of money for the VPS it was decided that the EGLUG share will be paid but the other admins, that is Whirlpool and YoussefAssad

notice the increase on feb, EGLUG was consuming way to much resources and we had to ask for a ram upgrade

March and April 2005

this is after elections, YoussefAssad resigned, and Ezabi and Conceptor where elected, the ELUG share is now split on three admins

we had to increase RAM again

May 2005

since MoahmmedSameer no longer pays a share for the VPS that runs EGLUG he is back to contributing to EGLUG's share, this makes it split on 4 admins

on that month we had to renew the EGLUG domains, for the cost of 10$ per domain. Alaa paid for the .org domain and Ezabi paid for the .net domain, domain costs are split on all 5 admins

so if my memory did not fail me and I did not forget some payment here is the balance

  • ows Alaa 14.5$
  • ows Ezabi 2$

big mess mesh keda

now there is a point I'd like to raise, EGLUG is actually using half and not a third of the VPS resources and it is becoming a big strain, I'd really like to add some extra ram and have EGLUG pay 1/2 not 1/3

I think a good idea would be

I think a good idea would be for active members to voluntarily pledge $2 ~ $3 per month. I can think of maybe 4 members who would likely be able to do so. At current exchange rates, this is equivalent to about 12 ~ 17.5 pounds. I am sure we can spare that much from allowance every month.

I for one, voice my readiness if this is approved.

Yes for me

Hi all... will I think its a good idea and for me I am in , wish the best for u all salam. :):)

Has the administration team responded to this generous offer? It's almost one month old.

Alaa's picture

eh no

the administration team has been performing very badly in this issue.

obviousy we need someone to step up and take care of the nasty collecting money business (any volunteers).

and we need someone to come up with a reasonable transparent system for collecting this money and keeping the community informed about it.

thanks SK and Open Craft for their generous offers, I hope they are still valid even after our failure to respond :-)


"i`m feeling for the 2nd time like alice in wonderland reading el wafd"

Sure it's still valid.. just

I'm not sure what'll happen but I don't intend to renew with my current host.

Shall I sign up for a plan that's enough for foolab and eglug ? or what ??

Marwa should contact sk and Open Craft.

BooDy payed 150LE, It'll be used to cover the hosting for the next month.

I payed half of it so expect new figures. I just need to do my calculations ;)

We still need to get what CVirus collected from phaeron and others.
