I agree with the sentiment that the reward must equal the return when it comes to designing and selling merch to members who may already have a cupboard full of previous seasons merch. If there is ‘merch fatigue’ developing amongst members perhaps it’s time to look at a new funding model for the forum. This could involve moderate subscriptions, elected representatives, an agreed charter and transparency on receipts and payments, which is a natural by-product of a subscription/elected representative model. This does not and is not intended to denigrate any of the hard and fine work which many people have done to get the forum to where it is today, but sometimes if the model is not working to its optimal financial or utilitarian level, it’s appropriate to look at alternatives. This is a question worth asking the members.
