Looking for a way for a group to pool L$ together in a way we have a live feed of the total balance, plus records of who put what in.  Ideally it would show within SL all information.   The funds are to be pooled together in order to facilitate future land rental &/or community purchases.

Has anyone seen something like this as a tool?  Even an API option would be helpful, as we could reroute it back into SL?


Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

The only way you could do this is with an account set up to hold the funds and people pay into the account via an inworld object ... but that's starting to sound a lot like a bank, which is explicitly banned by the ToS - even if you aren't offering interest or anything, it's probably not worth the risk.

Suggest you pool currency outside of SL and then use that to buy L$ as needed to operate .. seems paypal have you covered.

Thats a standard donation board isn't it? A trusted person makes a banking alt, people donate.

You can use something like a tipping server to track who pays what. Be aware though these tipping server solutions are server based and some of the people making them don't have great track records with keeping their servers open.

You can also just use ther lab's transaction list in CSV format and import that into a shared google spreadsheet.
