Trello things

New Business

  • Board vote: Change dues to be a bit more if you aren't using scheduled payments. This isn't a solidly figured out thing yet. Discuss.

Old Business

  • Electric bill due 12/2, Farkas should have the info he needs from Eric by the time of the meeting
  • Monica now scans
  • Getting SSL encrypted logins for the blog.
    • It would be a very bad idea to do domain logins for the Wordpress blog unless we are able to keep end to end encryption of username/password data. From what I gather, we would need to upgrade to a business account with Paigly (PS:1's hosted Wordpress vendor) in order to get this. I'd like a final yes or no on whether or not this is a route we want to go, and to either have this happen or get permission/access to make this happen. --Hef (talk) 13:13, 10 November 2013 (CST)
    • This has been on the todo list for three weeks. Let's make sure we actually get to this. --Bry (talk) 00:42, 30 November 2013 (CST)
