I have been looking at CiviCRM software for managing membership and contributions. There is a Media wiki extension here . I am also looking at PayPal for online donations management and collection, there is a side bar media wiki extension here. Something easy and simple to install and manage should be available out there.--Dumisani (talk) 22:15, 10 November 2012 (SAST)

CivicRM is a quite complicated software program. It needs to be upgraded regularly, even if it will not have a real use in our chapter (exept for providing table "public_reporting" which will be used in the Mediawiki extension). I would keep it KISS and do everything manual for now (with the Paypal module, or by bank account) MADe (talk) 00:48, 12 November 2012 (SAST)

New name

The name "village pump" for this meeting place is so .. standard.

Any ideas on a new name? It should be typically South African (I was thinking on "braaiplace" but that's a little bit stupid) MADe (talk) 00:52, 12 November 2012 (SAST)

"Braai Place". Sounds cool to me. I support --Dumisani (talk) 09:42, 12 November 2012 (SAST)
How about "Lapa" if we want to go full South African style? --Slashme (talk) 12:23, 12 November 2012 (SAST)
"Shisanyama" would also be cool. Here is a Wikipedia stub on the definition.--Dumisani (talk) 14:47, 14 November 2012 (SAST)

Front page of website

I think the front page of our website looks like a set of postage stamps from the Old South Africa. Am I alone in this view? If not, what are your ideas to improve it? --Slashme (talk) 12:38, 12 November 2012 (SAST)

That was a quick improvision, maybe we can put it our as a design logo competition next year?--Dumisani (talk) 15:09, 12 November 2012 (SAST)
