Good news - we're open for limited services in Wembley. Ujima House is now actively under refurbishment and we'd love your help in making the space the best it can be.

Please pay attention to the main LHS mailing list or pop into our #london-hack-space IRC channel and say hello.

During this interim period donations and continued membership are greatly appreciated while we transition to our new space.

Guides/Running a pledge

Before starting a pledge

  • Check that there is demand for the item you wish to buy on the mailing list and on IRC.
  • Wait a few days - you may find that a member already has a similar item that they'll be willing to donate.
  • If you think there is suitable demand then set up a pledge.

Setting up the pledge

  • Create a link to your pledge on the pledges page using {{pledgefor|what you want}} on the Pledges page
  • Click the red link to your new pledge page - you can use this template to help you add the right content
  • Notify the mailing list of your pledge, including a link to your pledge page.

Collecting money

Well done - you've reached your target! Soon you can buy things. First you need to get the money together:

  • Money should be paid into the same Hackspace account into which members pay their subscriptions. Items will then be purchased from this account.
  • Create a short reference for pledgers to use when transferring money. This will be used to correlate bank account credits to their respective pledges. Some examples:
    • ROUTER, PCBETCH, LASERCUT
  • Mail the list and call in the pledges.
    • Be sure to include the reference and mention that money should be paid into the Hackspace account.
    • Ask pledgers to mark their pledge as 'PAID' on the wiki page.

Purchasing

  • Ask Russ to get the Hackspace wallet out :)

Wrapping up

  • Move your pledge to the 'completed pledges' section.
