I’ve been inviting people here very organically… Volunteers, devs, artists, designers and a few that cross multiple categories. The idea was to experiment with the sign up process, seed a few categories and get a feel for the general scope.
As of our last newsletter, we’re ready to shift from being more closed to being more open, which means inviting a lot more folks in. For instance, all new listener co-op members have an option to be invited in. All new artists that upload an EP or more (3+ tracks in the same collection) get invited in as well.
We can also make it so that existing forum members invite friends in.
Ideally, this space is for co-op members only. But thats open for debate.
According to our rulebook (see #the-cooperative) a member is defined as…
- volunteer or worker who earns their share
- artist or label who earns by uploading their catalog
- listener who buys their 5 euro membership
So… Should we stray outside this structure? Time to discuss!
