Joining the Co-operative
We're still working on basic services. Membership is currently recommended for people wanting to help develop and test services, or those looking to support the project.
- Your name
- An address for you - email is the most common
- What user name you want
They will also provide you the account details to make your payments into. Either make a single payment to cover you to the next AGM or set up a standing order to pay the fee monthly.
On receipt of your first payment your account will be created with a one use password. Use our ID server to set a permanent one. Once that's done you'll have full access to all our services and be able to help setup new ones.
N.B. Currently the ID server has a self signed certificate, this is a known issue we're working to resolve.
Membership fees are discussed at our annual general meeting, and voted on by members.
New members pay 5 GBP / month which contributes to our Running Costs.
We're willing to accept equivalent payments in other currencies, which we recommend paying annually to limit transaction charges.
