Welcome to the first Webwide monthly update where I offer up some transparency on the statistics and achievements from the past month. Apologies it's a little late! I'd like to get these out last day of each month in future... 😄

A huge thank you to our paid members supporting the Webwide platform financially this month:

Income & Spending
Income from premium memberships are the only source of income. In total this month after payment processor fees this amounted to approx. £90. I personally put up £200 to offset the initial set-up costs. Most expenses are tax deductible to offset income tax related costs (still have to pay VAT on purchases).
- Xenforo License £160
- Xenforo Add-ons £40
- Domain name (webwide.io) £20
- Marketing (dev.to listings * 3) £12.50
*Since I'm such a legendary Krystal affiliate this actually hasn't cost me anything this month, if you need servers, domains or shared hosting in the UK check out Krystal - The UK's Best Web Hosting Provider and use coupon code DB8C8731 for £5 off. I'll get £5 credit too. 😉
So there's £60 in the Webwide coffers for now which will be spent responsibly on growth.
If you've got too much cash weighing down your wallet and you feel like £1.49 is just too good value for your membership. You can "Buy me a (figurative) coffee" with a message saying it's for Webwide to donate to the platform. 😜
Basically everything, so I won't list it all here. Notably recently the Code of Conduct has been updated with some more guidelines. You can view the roadmap here and make suggestions in the meta forum.
