Well, boys and girls, welcome to the end of Club Nocturnity!The votes have been tallied, and the remaining money is offically going to Pussies Galore, a not for profit cat rescue organisation.Thanks go to Cat/kissindra for taking over the money stuff and getting that organised!It's been a rollercoaster ride of ups and downs here with Club Nocturnity, and I'd like to say thanks to everyone for coming along, participating, and enjoying this club.
I will be paying Aerodrama $50 leaving $330 to go to charity. Make a suggestion in the comments and I'll add it here.SUGGESTIONS:give it to Angie (past nocturnity DJ) to go towards her not-for-proffit cat rescue which she runs out of her cat themed shop "Pussies Galore" in Paddington. It helps wee kitties get new loving homes rather than be put down, it's run by one of our own and it is most definitely a worthy charity.Angie and the various foster carers are often up every two hours feeding kittens. They vaccinate, feed, de-sex, worm and vet check all their rescues and do it all out of selfless love. They don't have church/corperate sponsorship or grants in place to do what they do. Find a not for profit charity that supports homeless people eg: Rosie's Van.I'll be tallying votes via comments for the next two weeks to give people a chance to respond.PLEASE NOTE: ONLY VOTE IF YOU HAD SOMETHING TO DO WITH THE CLUB OTHER THAN ATTENDING!!!
*still* waiting to hear how much was owed to Aerodrama!
Votes have been tallied, including those oppinions lodged previously online or off and in comments.The majority of people voted to give the remaining money to charity.I will ask Meli to post another pole to decide on which charity, please reply with suggestions. With Christmas being so close I'll suggest the money goes on toys or giftvouchers from Kmart to be placed under the Kmart giving tree for children who would otherwise not be getting presents this year. Whatever the final decision the reciept/reciepts will be scanned and posted on the community for all to see and if the vote goes towards putting gifts under the tree I will invite you all to come witness this being done.Those of you that wanted to keep it going may be unsure as to why the decision has been made to wind it down.Nocturnity has garnered a bad reputation by fair means or foul. While it would be possible in future to run a club with the remaining money, what Nocturnity was supposed to be would not be possible. Given the vote and the feeling that any club that came out of the remaining money would not be in the original spirit of Nocturnity - it is best that the money that is left, which belongs to noone, should go to charity as per the vote rather than financing another enterprise.In the end, it comes down to the vote. Majority rules at Nocturnity, and while that has been debated and subject to change I think it fitting that in the end we go out as we started, with the emphasis on what the majority of the community wants. Obviously people will be angry and disagree but what Nocturnity should have reinforced to everyone is that you can't please everyone. It's time to end it but another thing to be learn't is that if you want to, you can put a club together, and you can make it happen. It won't always last and there are many mistakes you can learn by but you can give it a go.Thankyou to everyone ever involved either by vollunteering, turning up or other. Thankyou to Cassie and Sara for proving you can take an idea a long way. adios and goodnight people, I look forward to seeing our DJ's continue and maybe some new clubs run by familiar faces turn up when the time is right.xxoo Cat.

hum. so i noticed not much has been happening here.i'm ready to give up on the whole conceptif anyone wants to take over.you need to get money of monk and vix (they are looking after it)pay adrian, mercy dolls, empyrean, dizzy gotheca and art of abduction as well as reimbursing nel for her bits and pieces.and then, go for your life, cuz i can't be assed with the gothic scene anymore.
for the youngens. spread the word. as a community, we should try to support events like this.and if thats not a good enough reason, we should support our own jadei.
Just about time for another meeting, yes/no?Also, I've been meaning to add some more community members to my friends list so if you wish to, add me and I'll add you back!
Nocturnity actually has an email address set up...email@example.comI have assigned it a webmail system resource, so I can provide the details to whom ever we want to be responsible for checking it. I think that perhaps Cassie or Monk could be given access to it... what do you guys think?I've just gone through and deleted some spam that was sitting in there, but there is a genuine email in there too from someone interested in performing at Nocturnity in the future...I think this would be a great tool for promotion.I will be working on the website this weekend, so if someone could provide me the notes from the last meeting in regards to what we decided we would require on there, that would be great :)Thanks guys.-Gwen.
