## IRC / forum activity

- NEXT STEP (mray): post this and other questions on the forum

## Comparison page
- wolftune: emphasizing that a term like "mutual assurance" or reference to the "coordination problem" could be an important distinction, as in Snowdrift.coop and Kickstarter both check that while Patreon does not.
