Thanks everyone for their responses. Back to the original questions: - what kind of thing would you, personally, be interested in buying or getting as a gift? Tshirts, mousemats, cufflinks? - how much would you be willing to spend? - what logos would you like? Wikipedia? WMUK, complete family?
Discussions so far have focussed on very limited sales, order on demand only. No one wants to spend lots of effort doing this, or taking any significant levels of stock. I don't think it has any potential to be a major source of funding so I don't suggest we go down that route. We're an association, a group of people with a common interest. The best way to encourage more and more people to join is to generate an enthusiasm for what we have in common. Stuff like Wikipedia T-shirts have a great potential to do that. Please don't pile in to rubbish the idea before it even takes shape.
