Ladies and gentlemen,
respected club members of ipernity,

I would have preferred to be able to open our General Assembly today under different circumstances: With less worry about what is happening to us right now, how we can cope with everyday life, and what is yet to come.

But I think that what I can report on today can give you a good measure confidence, at least with regard to the future of ipernity. For many in our community, regular communication via ipernity is an integral part of everyday life.

Therefore, as President of the Ipernity Members Association, I stand by the mandate you have entrusted me with, even in these difficult times, despite the enormous private and professional burden I am currently under. Because I have a strong team that helps me to master all challenges, a team that you chose in 2019 and that has achieved a lot since then. In addition, since April 2019, we have had an extended group of advisors to support us.

Despite the fact that a year ago it seemed completely hopeless to be able to carry out the urgently needed renewal of our subscription structure without reprogramming, we have managed to do it on our own, without expensive external support for programming. All ipernity users can now book subscription packages of varying complexity to suit their needs much better than the former uniform club-subscription.

As before, guests are still welcome at ipernity. In the new, free trial account, they can try out all ipernity functions for 3 months. Afterwards they can stay with us with a free account if they do not want to book a subscription. However, the possibilities of guest accounts are more limited compared to the past. This is because, as a solidarity community that covers its expenses exclusively through membership fees, we can only offer limited free use.

For our contributing members we have created the possibility to book multi-year subscriptions at more favourable conditions. The subscription reductions are up to 25 percent. The extent to which this option is chosen is very pleasing. After all, the fact that it is fixed for several years is a great vote of confidence and increases our planning reliability. Above all, however, it brings additional money into the club's fund, with which we can conclude more cost-effective long-term contracts with the Amazon Web Service. In this way, everyone benefits from the discounts. Moreover, it guarantees that membership contributions will remain stable for the foreseeable future.

With a contribution of only $49.90 pa for the standard subscription ($39.90 pa for a five-year subscription), our community is the most affordable photo sharing provider in the world. New members pay as little as $25.90 for the first year, as well as the low-cost new basic subscription for users with fewer needs with respect to disc space and features.

 ima.team
ima.team club
All of these improvements have necessitated a complex redesign of ipernity's payment processing pages. We were able to handle the necessary programming completely in-house, as well as the conversions in the area of geolocation and map services. We were forced to do this by new, unfavorable user fees for Google Maps. This was also managed in house, by changing to Open Street Maps for the location display. Google Maps was retained for positioning and satellite view only. More recently, the pop-up windows were positioned differently, enlarged and made movable.

The migration of our integrated translation module to DeepL, however, was our own considered decision. After all, the world's best translator is just about good enough for our members to communicate across national and language borders.
During the year there were hundreds of bug fixes and many improvements. The most important ones were reported in our 14-day team blog. I would especially like to emphasize the completely new FAQ. It is a prime example of club-internal teamwork beyond the confines of the ima core team. Without doubt, it is thanks to the committed help from our advisors that this mammoth project was managed to such a high standard.

The Alexa ranking of ipernity has also improved. In the course of the year, our website rose from 106,445th place to 46,933rd place, with a sustained positive trend.

Regrettably, we were unable to initiate the reprogramming decided upon at the last general assembly. Despite the high commitment of many members, the necessary starting capital did not accumulate. Our community is simply still too small for such a huge project. On the other hand, the campaign led to the fact that the equity ratio of our association is now very solid. This, as well as all other financial aspects, is reported separately.

Apart from the effects of the global coronavirus crisis, which cannot be assessed in any way, we currently do not see any major risks for ipernity. The technical and financial basis is now very solid. However, our personnel resources are rather weak. A long-term absence of members of the ima team would not be easy to cope with. After all, my colleagues on the team are doing almost impossible things. For this I thank them on behalf of the whole community, as well as our advisors and all those members who, through their feedback in the team blog, create indispensable realism. Your comments and critical questions are not always comfortable, but always valuable.

With regard to the fact that many of us will involuntarily spend much more time within our own four walls during the next weeks or months, I would like to invite you to use this time to make ipernity even more attractive for visitors and potential members. Let us make the best out of this crisis by using it for a quality offensive.

I hope that our fellowship will continue to grow together in this year of crisis and ultimately emerge stronger. There will certainly be a time after the coronavirus pandemic for which it is worthwhile to stand together and deepen friendships. Because “ipernity is more than just photo sharing”.

Thank you.

Ladies and gentlemen,

The turnaround of ipernity was successfully continued in the reporting year. Total assets increased to EUR 20,486 (previous year: EUR 1,954). This exceeds expectations (EUR 17,000) by EUR 3,486 (20.5 percent). The reserves cover almost six months of operating costs (without IT projects). Our association now has a solid financial footing.

The inflow of cash from regular contribution payments grew by 22.6 percent to EUR 52,582 (previous year: EUR 42,879). The average contribution income per member was EUR 37.03 per year. The donations received increased tenfold to EUR 3,787 (previous year: EUR 365). In addition, advance contribution payments of EUR 10,852 were made. This expresses the members' great confidence in the future. Overall, income rose by 34.8 percent to EUR 67,295 (previous year: EUR 49,986).

In turn, costs were reduced by 26.6 percent to EUR 48,736 (previous year: EUR 66,465). The most significant savings were achieved in external IT services. The costs for these fell by EUR 9,663 (55.6 percent) to EUR 7,723 (previous year: EUR 17,386). This was made possible by IT services provided internally without charge since March 2019.

The costs for the Amazon Web Service (AWS) were also reduced. They fell by EUR 7,509 (17.5 percent) to EUR 35,397 (previous year: EUR 42,906), although the exchange rate of the US dollar against the euro deteriorated by 5.5 percent. The major savings were achieved by deleting invisible content that had accumulated since ipernity was founded. As a result, storage costs fell by EUR 7,320 (35.5 percent) to EUR 13,278 (previous year: EUR 20,598).

Because Google had modified the pricing for API usage, there was a high unexpected additional expenditure of around EUR 630 per month from March onwards. Calculated over the year, this would have meant an unplanned budget burden of EUR 7,540. We have cushioned the cost increase by switching the GEO localization and map service from Google Maps to OpenStreetMap. As a result, we were able to limit the additional expenditure to a total of EUR 1,900.

 ima.team

In order to invest the capital reserves profitably until they are needed for reprogramming, we started to convert the server leasing contracts with ASW to cost-effective long-term contracts with advance payment in 2019. During the contract periods, this will reduce the costs for the AWS servers (including depreciation) by around EUR 4,400 (12 percent) annually. Thus the mutual trust of the members leads directly to financial advantages for our community.

The liabilities in the form of subscription obligations amounted to EUR 56,667, which results in an equity ratio of 36.2 percent. This is a robust economy of scale.

Since the one-off effects on income (EUR 14,649 from donations and multi-year subscriptions) will not be repeated in this magnitude, we expect a smaller increase in reserves in 2020. We expect the amount to be EUR 30,000 in total. The equity ratio should rise to over 50 percent. Apart from the Corona crisis, whose economic impact on ipernity is completely unpredictable, no other financial risks are known that could endanger ipernity's operations.

We have audited the financial statements of the ipernity Members Association for the financial year from January 1, 2019 to December 31, 2019. Based on the findings of our audit, the financial statements comply in all material respects with the legal requirements and give a true and fair view of the financial position of the Association. It accurately presents the opportunities and risks of future development.

The memberships were only differentiated in the 4th quarter of 2019. Since January 1, 2020, it has been possible to upgrade or downgrade when a Sunscription expires. This has not been given much consideration so far. However, a representative figure cannot yet be quantified before the process has gone through a 12-month cycle.

We then estimate the proportion of Basic Subscription at around 20 percent.

... proposer éventuellement un outil (du type de PicMonkey) avec des possibilités d'enregistrement optimisées
ou peut-être un espace de diffusion d'apprentissages un peu comme le fait déjà LinkedIn.
Que ce soit payant ou non. (ou les deux versions, d'ailleurs...)

Ou laisser la possibilité de l'upload des vidéos pour un compte premium ?

How the number of participants will develop is completely open. In the last four weeks it has fallen by 20 (to 1,400, as of today) for various reasons. However, in the past, the number of registrations has always fluctuated greatly according to season. There could be major changes as a result of the Corona crisis. However, it is completely uncertain in which direction.

@ Happy Snapper: You would have to explain in more detail how you imagine it.

@ Ruesterstaude: Das ergäbe keinen nennenswerten Effekt. Mit einem einzigen Video in 500 MB Größe wäre die Einsparung von 500 Bildern wieder weg.

Es gibt immer noch Gruppen, die vor 8,9,10 Jahren gegründet wurden, mitunter nur ein halbes Dutzend Mitglieder haben/hatten und seitdem "freischwebend im All" unterwegs sind, d.h. keinerlei Moderation erkennen lassen und auch keine neuen Beiträge beinhalten, ... die könnte man evtl. einfach löschen.

Auf gar keinen Fall! Das ist nicht die Aufgabe eines Hosters, bei dem man für seinen Speicherplatz bezahlt. Wo kämen wir denn da hin, ich lade ein perfekt aussehendes Foto oder Video hoch und dann verändert es irgend eine andere Software einfach von sich aus, was ich anderen zeigen möchte? Das ist eines der nervigsten Dinge bei anderen Foto-Plattformen, dass die JPG-Artefakte in meine Fotos rein basteln, die beim hochladen noch nicht vorhanden waren, das geht überhaupt nicht!

das sehe ich genauso. Was der einzelne mit seinem Speicherplatz anstellt, ist seine Sache.

Da stimme ich absolut zu. 100 GB sind 100 GB, egal, wie man sie nutzt.

I agree. But if one wants to resize to save space it can be good and easier to have such option available. I was not thinking of imposing it, sorry if I was not clear.

Sure, but resizing should not be done by a tool but by the respective members theirselves.
We should not look like bossing our members ;-)
