Who pays for OxfordRomance, and why do you do it?
OxfordRomance is the Oxford University branch of ruo3.org, which is run in Oxford by and Cupid.
RUO3.org itself is based in Cambridge.
We do it because we enjoy it, it's a challenge, and we get to meet new people. It's also good CompSci fun, and is our contribution to student welfare and happiness. We hope it helps - we know it can be rotten
being single :-( If you find it useful, we'd very much appreciate your help running it.
What's the catch? There really isn't one...we're just being nice :-) There is no "data-mining" or advertising; we won't sell your data, and there are no "premium features"
(such as the common bait-and-switch tactic of 'join for free, pay to communicate').
OxfordRomance is a non-profit making student society, run philanthropically, and at no charge. Initially, the costs were not large, although with the purchase of a server and our own domains,
they have now risen significantly! These have been met in Cambridge by Richard and John. Posters and fliers for publicity are expensive and we are also meeting these costs ourselves. Nevertheless, if you feel tempted to contribute, we would appreciate it a lot!
