Does the sale of miniatures bring income to this organization?It seems to me that gamesworkshop should engage in non-commercial activities.

This 'organization' being yaktribe? I would assume none what so ever.

GW probably has limited to no interest in engaging in non-commercial activities - why should they?

Yaktribe does NOT take a slice of sales conducted through the site (commission), if that's what you're asking about.

I don't think there are that many sales made here, but any that are are private transactions between the members involved.

A good number of us contribute towards the site, either through one-off payments or via subscription.

If you're interested, there's a thread on subscriptions here: https://yaktribe.games/community/threads/subscriptions.6134/ - although, ironically, I think you my need to be a subscriber to access that one...

Yaktribe does not receive profit from, or moderate any of the sales that are arranged through the trading post. They are all private, and come with a caveat emptor warning.

The site is funded entirely by donations, either through subscriptions or one-off payments from supporters. If you’re interested in joining the ranks of Yak supporters, check out this link for more info.

Wait, so the website does not get anything from the sales?! Are you serious, guys?! I do not really understand why are they having this kind of a policy. The owners have to understand that they can actually earn a fortune from the sales. And I am sorry, but what would be the point of engaging in non-commercial activities for this kind of website?! That is just pointless. There are actually some similar websites that are registered as non-profit organizations. However this is a different story. If you want to find those sites and see what they are doing and how they survive, you can check this list: [removed] It is a very great list of non profit organizations.
I have to agree with you

Got to say, a bunch of one-post new members registered for little more than a month at most saying that the site should change its practices and income generation (getting involved in private sales, registering as a non-profit, especially when the previously post's quote doesn't contain the quoted text - and hasn't for several days, unless I missed some recent edit that isn't shown) seems a little... odd?

I was going to say this thread definitely sets my spidey-sense tingling.

Definitely feels fishy. 3 brand new accounts taking an interest in the income of the site, with only one of them having any other posts, and those being kinda spammy copy-paste like? :LOL:

Yes - I'm always inclined to be charitable, especially given that the first post was at least somewhat tailored to us and not something spammed on every forum - but the more recent ones definitely seem more interested in income generation than specialist games.

Well this is really strange - especially the expanded quote, if it did exist originally the quoted post has no edit history that usually us mods can see?!?!?

Who are you people?
