New homepage with fancy animated video is now live at https://snowdrift.coop
We only spent about 2 years of (on and off) work on it, so don't expect perfection. ;)
Hopefully, we'll get around to writing blog post about it sometime soon.
@Blort We do need to clarify that one point better. The ONLY purpose of a budget limit is a guarantee that you won't donate more than you are willing or can afford.
A forum discussion of the same question: https://community.snowdrift.coop/t/question-about-getting-cut-out-at-budget-limit/1110
that links to https://wiki.snowdrift.coop/about/limits too
Short answer: We don't want you out, we want to get to where there's 15,000 patrons and we'll be already changing the world by the time you actually hit that limit. How to balance things then is not our problem now.
@Blort In other words: if we can get an order of magnitude or two more people donating to public goods at their *actual* budget limits… THEN we can democratically decide which of various methods to use to spread the burden as fairly as possible.
The only reason a limit exists now, far before it could be hit is for the portion of people who freak out about the idea of a limitless matching pledge and need reassurance of a hard limit they control.
