Hi, I just signed up for a email account. I didn’t realise at the time that the username would be used as part of the email address, is there anyway to change this? I see you offer aliases for a donation, I plan to make a monthly donation but not sure if it will be enough to be granted an alias.
Hi and welcome!
There is no clacification on which donations are worhty the alias. As long as they are regular (monthly) it’s all fine. We give poeple the freedom to decide how much they value our work and how much they can afford.
As we say on the website:
Aliases are now available for our regular supporters. By regular supporters we think of those who contribute the equivalent of at least one cup of coffee a month.
It is not that we are promoting coffee, on the contrary - coffee is actually quite the symbol for exploitation and inequality so we thought that it is a good way to let people measure themselves how much they can give.
We found this list of coffee cup prices around the world, it might not be very accurate, but it gives a good indication of the different fares.
Please take time to consider your contribution. If you can ‘buy’ us one cup of Rio De Janeiro coffee a month that’s OK, but If you can afford a Double Decaf Soy Frappuccino With An Extra Shot And Cream a month, then you can really help us keep the Disroot platform running and make sure it is available for free for other people with less means.
Thank you for the welcome and your reply. I will apply for an alias and set-up a monthly donation.
Appreciate you taking the time to respond
