Added the pledge bank, edit away! And comment on the talk.
I've already summarised some of the issues with things like Direct Debit
(privacy/data protection issues).
For the pledge bank, I'd like to be quite ambitious. Start that up about a
month after the fundraiser with a trial notified about in the Signpost and
other community newsletters. Get people designing the buttons and
certificates. Goal: $1 million pledged before the next fundraiser, with a
80% conversion rate to actual donations.

many thanks! every idea is worth writing down, could you put it on the
wiki where you already put the payment options? maybe we should make
also an overview page of the "brainstorm results", what do you think?
