New Membership System
As you might have noticed, we recently changed the software we use to manage memberships. We built this new system, called Petal, in-house and we hope to share it as free software soon.
Petal is a big change for us, and has been a lot of work, but we believe Petal is in important investment in bringing better service to our members.
Some of the new features include:
- An improved look and better user experience
- Easier membership enrollment process
- Support for additional cryptocurrencies
- Quarterly membership periods
- Multiple memberships and multiple devices under a single account
- An easy path to upgrade memberships
- Ability for members to view their contribution history
- Ability for members to view and manage devices
- Many improvements to the work flow for administrators
- Memory-hard digests for passwords
- Clean, modern code, written from the ground up with security in mind
- A total separation between admin and user functions
Work on Petal is ongoing and we will continue to improve the membership experience. If you have any suggestions for features we should add, please let us know!
