(Thx to Noisebridge for their good content!) (Please do not edit this page without a consensus decision, we had a consensus-agreement on it Weekly Wednesday. So to change it, bring up your desired changes at a meeting !)
Do I have to be a member to use the space?
Voidwarranties is open to anyone to drop by and take a look around. Non-members are welcome to come by. If you use the space extensively, you are kindly asked to become a member.
How do I become a member?
Just come on over to one or more of our meetings and get to know some of the people there. Find two existing members who are willing to be your sponsor. Find the "New Members" box. The membership application form can be downloaded as Media:ApplicationForm.pdf. You can print this document yourself or find a copy in the space. After one month, the applicant is approved (or not, though this isn't very likely) during the weekly meeting. From that moment on the new member has to pay his/her dues.
What is the cost of membership?
- Membership dues are €12.5 per month (but if you are really l33t, or just are supportive, you pay €13.37, it is up to you).
- For students under 25 years of age the price is only €10. A student has to show a valid student ID card to be eligible for the discount.
- Children under the age of 18 are allowed in the space under supervision of an adult. If a minor wants to become a member° he can ,but should ALWAYS be supervised, his monthly due's are €0.5 per year of age, so a kid of 9 pay's a monthly subscription of €4.5.
This fee is to cover the infrastructure and equipment costs. We are entirely funded by membership fees and donations, so we encourage everyone to become a member.
°this membership is symbolic and does not give voting right or is counted as membership what the statutes are concerned.
Do I have to be a member to attend workshops and events?
No, workshops and events are open to everyone who's interested. All events are free for members. An extra contribution of €5 a workshop will be asked for non-members
How can I pay my membership dues?

I really dig your place. Can I schedule a workshop or event?
Yes! You are welcome to host or organise a workshop or event yourself. Have a look at the dedicated HOWT0 page.
Do you have regulary plenary meetings?
- Yes, we do hold a meeting once a month, which and is called Weeklywednesday. It's open to everybody (member or non-member). The name is a left-over from the times (2010) we used to meet EVERY week, because there was so much to arrange for and the group was really small. Today (2012) there is conscensus to meet on a monthly basis: the last Wednesday of the month.
