The yearly cost doesn't seem to be higher than the proposed budget, I'm not positive on the requirements so any help with that would be great. --[[User:Rtystgeeke|Rtystgeeke]] ([[User talk:Rtystgeeke|talk]]) 11:09, 22 September 2017 (CDT)

:: 500 can cover more than one year, but eventually it would run out. I'm estimate cost based on Digital Ocean's [https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-use-the-discourse-one-click-application-on-digitalocean prices] for their lower tiers $10/month or $20/month. I don't know if we'd want more than that. [[User:Skm|Skm]] ([[User talk:Skm|talk]]) 11:20, 22 September 2017 (CDT)

Just a placeholder for the vote at the moment. I haven't audited the budget to see if we need to allocate money, but it would be an unplanned expense.

Revision as of 10:20, 22 September 2017

Wording is jargony

'implement' isn't the best word choice. It has a technical meaning that doesn't fit here.

I suggest replacing it with 'use' and 'run'.

  • "We authorize the board to use Discourse for the main member forum..."
  • "spend up to $500 to run Discourse".

Or maybe for the first point, "We authorize the board to replace Google Groups with Discourse for the main member forum".

Basically, avoid using words that will over-specify or specify the wrong actions. Skm (talk) 10:19, 22 September 2017 (CDT)
