I would like to propose something: Donations. For what purposes? First of all the server. Carl is a fantastic server, he has been loyal to us for a lot of years. But sometimes he is down. Maybe we can avoid this by giving him more stuff. Or as a little present...
Second, our uncyc's aren't that popular. There is a way of making them popular. Not by advertising (of course, we could do that, but that wouldn't look like a 'non-profit'-site), but by paying Google for putting us higher on the results.
And maybe, that's for later, to buy back our domains from Wikia. Or, maybe, we can go to court against them for using the content for commercial use.

The easiest way to start donations is via PayPal I think. So, we need an adult to make an account and to manage our money. Someone that we can trust.
So, what do you think? Are you candidate for manageing the money? Do you think it's the most stupid thing we can do? Tiz (talk) 12:04, 12 April 2014 (UTC)

A huge deal would be "institutionalising" Uncyclomedia Foundation in a real non-profit "artistic" organisation. Any revenues and/or donations should be put into a fund for maintenance and publicity. In Flanders, however, this would entail into a lot of administration, but we could get subsidies | Cartoonist | Spit it out (talk) | E-mail | UnMeta | 12:01, 14 April 2014 (UTC)
Hm, I don't think that we are popular enough for that. But, Cartoonist, would you might like to manage the account? Maybe with two other users we can trust to prevent fraud (it isn't that I don't trust you, but maybe other people will). Then, if Carl needs something, you can give it. But, does he want/need anything? Tiz (talk) 13:13, 14 April 2014 (UTC)
