More Information About Joining
How to Join HCoopHCoop is currently accepting new members and only asks that you meet the following basic requirements prior to submitting your application. Members must be able to:
- Pay $7/month in United States dollars. We prefer that you pay with Paypal or Stripe, which can process major credit cards or pull money from your bank account.
- Use a basic GNU/Linux working environment. Most of our members are fairly technically inclined, but some aren't. If you haven't used GNU/Linux before, it doesn't have to be a deal breaker for you and HCoop. If you're good with computers and willing to do a little learning, you should be fine. Other HCoop members will probably be willing to help you through the use of our hcoop-help mailing list.
- Agree to our Terms of Service. Nothing too weird.
- Read the Getting Started section of our Member Manual, which is on our Wiki. This will give you an overview of what you need to know to use your HCoop account effectively.
