How much?

How much money does the shroomery make? Does the money go to the admins?

The vendors, and the supporters?

I'd think by now it's definitely making some money, the $5 a month from many people plus the money paid by vendors should exceed the money spent to maintain it without a doubt. By how much one wonders though.

I knew I'd get snide remarks, geez, I guess money really is "evil'  :rolleyes:

How about just wondering? They pull in money from the sponsors, and I'm guessing that pays for the expenses on the site, or the site wouldn't stay up, correct? Now, on top of that they offering premium membership, don't you think the shroomerite members should know to what their "donation" is going towards?

I wasnt trying to be mean, just smart :smile: 

My really reply should have been "who cares as long as the community is still here."  If they make money they deserve it.

The Shroomery makes well over $1000 every month, of which approximately $800 goes to covering hosting related expenses each month. Since this administration began serving the community in late December 2003, we have accumulated a $10,000 emergency fund and are currently in the planning stages of organizing a payment structure for each admin that carries significant responsibility. This structure has been discussed, but has yet to be fully implemented.

Our primary concern has been and always will be, the health and perseverance of The Shroomery and its community. Now that we have secured what we feel to be a comfortable emergency fund (initially proposed to be only $5000), we will begin introducing monetary incentive to certain administrators as well as independent contactors in order to encourage further development of the website/community.

O.K. so there's about a $200 a month positive cash flow???

 
Quote:

Since this administration began serving the community in late December 2003




So that's 12 months for all of 2004, and 1.5 months for 2005 so far, for a total of 13.5 months..

13.5 * $200 = $2,700 total cash beyond hosting expenses.

Quote:

we have accumulated a $10,000 emergency fund




$10,000 - the $2,700 earned= $7,300

Where did the remaining $7,300 come from?

I would venture to guess that "well over $1000" is t3h understatement of the year... :tongue:

Well over could mean $1500. That's an extra 700 a month, so about $9100 in 13 months.

well, they definately deserve to make a profit. I just wonder why they seem so reluctant to admit that they are making one.

Maybe it's as looner2 feared: The site is raking in $8,000 - $12,000 per month (well over $1000), and the admin are sipping pina coladas in Rio and answering stupid threads like this one from laptops.

Sure is great down here. 

I think we should start requiring all female Shroomerites to do a two week "community service" stint down here with us at least once a year :grin:
