I've given some thought to the charity thread situation and have a tentative proposal.
These are the aims. (1) I want to avoid having the site filled up with threads asking for donations. (2) I want any proposed charities to be valid and legitimate. (3) I want there to be some connection to the community. (4) I want members to be able to propose and engage with any fundraising. (5) HUKD not to have the responsibility of vetting/recommending due to legal reasons.
My thought is that we can have a basic thread where members can put forward their proposed charity. Once a month the proposed ones will be put in a poll and members can vote on which one will be that month's charity. Each month a thread will be made with the month's chosen charity and the previous thread will be expired.
What I need is: (1) you guys to draw up the list of proposed rules along the lines above, (2) a volunteer who is willing to manage it consistently and responsibly.
