Yeah, we invent­ed this weird lit­tle port­man­teau word Pro­Du­Gi to rep­re­sent our CD‑R mul­ti­me­dia col­lab­o­ra­tive project which is dri­ven by the fundrais­ing Gift Dona­tion Dri­ves at TheXFactory.com. It is designed to be worked on by you(and/or a col­lec­tion of NON com­mer­cial con­tent providers), a Graph­ic Design­er, and TheXFactory.com(pri­ma­ry con­tent pro­duc­er). All par­ties should also serve as project pro­mot­ers. There’s only the CD‑R itself with no case or inserts. The CD‑R is designed to run with­in computers(Linux, Win­dows, & MAC).

[Non Pro­Du­Gi Gift Dona­tion Dri­ves]

Pro­Du­gi CD‑R Media Tech­ni­cal Details:

  • CD‑R only (data CD) 
  • Designed to work in com­put­ers (Lin­ux, Win­dows, and MAC) 
  • All con­tent writ­ten and orga­nized in to fold­ers file structures 

Pro­Du­Gi CD‑R Media Con­tents Details

  • Sin­gle or Mul­ti­ple Cre­ative, Do It Your­self, and/or Do It Togeth­er con­tent providers may be con­tained with con­tents of CD‑R.
  • Mul­ti­ple types of media files are accept­ed (music, video, pic­tures, doc­u­ments, pro­grams, etc.) 

Cost for 1 CD‑R for each per­son who works on a Pro­Du­Gi project

  • $10 min­i­mum dona­tion per CD‑R
  • Only 1 CD‑R may be request­ed per per­son or group who works on the project. The rea­son for this rule is to pre­vent mass shar­ing and the delu­sion of Gift Dona­tions for all par­ties involved. In short, if you don’t sug­gest that peo­ple exchange some­thing for it, they will not val­ue what you do and YOU WILL LACK THE FUNDS to con­tin­ue your pro­jec­t’s efforts. 
  • Our rea­sons for doing this have been proven over and over again. Just ask a musi­cian. We’re all suck in the post Nap­ster age with no hope of ever escap­ing. There’s so much cog­ni­tive dis­so­nance that peo­ple would actu­al­ly love to pay for music but the idea of FREE or cheap is impos­si­ble to pass up. Seri­ous­ly, think bout it. This applies to almost every­thing cor­po­ra­tions touch. REAL TALK. 

Pro­Du­Gi Project Cre­ation Requirements

  • You must have a pay­pal account. So that we can send you dona­tion mon­ey. If you don’t have one, get one HERE.
  • IMPORTANT NOTE: As of this month(June 2017), Pay­pal cur­rent­ly takes 2.9% + 0.30 of all of the dona­tions which come in to us. 
  • You must live in the U.S.A. This keeps ship­ping real­ly cheap and con­sis­tent. So that too much dona­tion mon­ey isn’t spent on ship­ping and goes to the project creators(content providers, graph­ic design­ers, and producers) 
  • You must speak eng­lish pret­ty well only because it’s the only lan­guage we ful­ly under­stand with­out con­fu­sion or error. 

Pro­Du­Gi Pro­mo­tion­al Respon­si­bil­i­ties & Payments:

All par­ties will be respon­si­ble for shar­ing and pro­mot­ing the project to dri­ve in dona­tions for each project. Each dona­tion will be split 3 ways amongst THE CONTENT PROVIDER(you and/or oth­ers who pro­vide the con­tent on the CD‑R), THE GRAPHIC DESIGNER(person who cre­ate the art­work on top of the phys­i­cal CD‑R), and THE CONTENT PRODUCER(TheXFactory.com — which pro­vides the dona­tion dri­ve page, project orga­ni­za­tion, etc.).

If you are the con­tent provider and the Graph­ic Design­er then you will receive 1/2 of what is donat­ed and TheXFactory.com(the con­tent pro­duc­er) will recieve 1/2. This is done due to the lack of the extra enti­ty who would have had access to peo­ple to pro­mote to. So we are basi­cal­ly split­ting the 3rd pro­mo­tion­al sec­tion between the con­tent provider and the pro­duc­er. The same rules apply if THE GRAPHIC DESIGNER and THE CONTENT PRODUCER are TheXFactory.com.

Equal Sup­port Dona­tions Rules:

Idea Behind Equal Sup­port Dona­tions Rules: The inten­sion behind this project is for peo­ple under­stand that they are not just pur­chas­ing prod­ucts; but, they are also sup­port­ing the peo­ple behind each cre­ation. Hav­ing said that, only one CD‑R per per­son will be allowed per min­i­mum dona­tion. If a dona­tor decides that he/she would like to have more than one CD‑R, the required min­i­mum dona­tion must be raised to the aver­age dona­tion amount for that item with $10 being the min­i­mum increase(ex: Dona­tion Amount + $10 or more). You will need to con­tact us direct­ly HERE to mod­i­fy your donation.

  • Con­tent Provider, graph­ic design­er, Pro­duc­er (3 way split of dona­tions — 33%/33%/33%)
  • Con­tent provider and graph­ic design­er are the same (2 way split of dona­tions — 50%/50%)

Abstract Pro­Du­Gi Think­ing & Cross Promotion

After you imple­ment the col­lab­o­ra­tive rules of cre­at­ing a Pro­du­Gi project, all you’ll have to do is add the fol­low­ing nota­tion to your actu­al project content(CD‑R, art­work, t‑shirts, or what­ev­er you’ve pro­duced etc) and send us the link information;

If you cre­ate a Pro­Du­Gi project direct­ly with us, we will add the fol­low­ing nota­tion to your actu­al project con­tent; and, we’ll for­ward the project from the ProDuGi.com url direct­ly to a Gift Dona­tion Dri­ve page at TheXFactory.com.

A Release Pre­sent­ed by TheXFactory.com :: Cre­ative Net­work [Pro­Du­Gi Col­lab­o­ra­tive Project] YourName.ProDuGi.com/ItemName

If you cre­ate a Pro­Du­Gi project of your own, we’ll for­ward your project pro­mo­tions through a YourName.ProDuGi.com/ItemName url to the loca­tion of your choos­ing. Before hit­ting your page, the page will pause before redi­rect­ing to your con­tent. This pause will offer the choice for the user to con­tin­ue to your con­tent or to view a list of your and oth­er Pro­Du­Gi projects. You’ll have to add the fol­low­ing nota­tion to your actu­al project con­tent. Be sure to repleace “Your­Name” and “Item­Name” with your infor­ma­tion with no spaces or spe­cial char­ac­ters and under­scores area allowed;

The break down of who does what in a Pro­Du­Gi Project?

  • THE CONTENT PROVIDER(that’s you) will pro­vide the con­tent for the CD‑R(that’s you as an indi­vid­ual, your small busi­ness, your band, your small organiziation/group, etc). This may be one or mul­ti­ple orig­i­nal con­tent providers as long as they are NOT com­mer­cial­ly based or sponsored. 
  • THE GRAPHIC DESIGNER(that’s you, TheXFactory.com, or a third par­ty) will cre­ate the art­work which will be print­ed to the top of the CD‑R. This should be some­one that all par­ties agree will visu­al­ly do the project jus­tice. this per­son may also pro­vide pho­tog­ra­phy, art­work, and oth­er media direct­ly con­cern­ing the above “CONTENT PROVIDER”. 
  • THE CONTENT PRODUCER(TheXFactory.com :: Cre­ative Net­work) will orga­nize the project as a whole, add the media con­tent to the actu­al CD‑R, print, dupli­cate, cre­ate a Gift Dona­tion dri­ve page at TheXFactory.com web­site, and ship the pro­mo­tion­al CD‑R to peo­ple who have donat­ed more than the min­i­mum required dona­tion for each CD‑R.

In case any­one wants to use the Pro­Du­Gi(ProDuGi.com) con­cept with­out TheXFactory.com as the con­tent producer.
This means using the idea of work­ing togeth­er to cre­ate an inde­pen­dent project using a con­tent provider, graph­ic design­er, and con­tent pro­duc­er with the con­tent pro­duc­er while includ­ing the terms “Pro­Du­Gi”, “YourName.ProDuGi.com/ItemName on an with­in your actu­al items(aka: prod­uct if you will);

    Please under­stand that the nature of this term is as below;
  • All things relat­ed to your Pro­Du­Gi must NOT be the brain child or the prop­er­ty of a cor­po­ra­tion. This term has been invent­ed help to empow­er the people. 
  • For the use of indi­vid­u­als, small orga­ni­za­tions and busi­ness­es only. Not for large cor­por­ta­tions or cor­po­rate mind­ed entities 
  • Is nev­er to be sold like a stan­dard for sale item. 
  • Is based on offer­ing said item as a dona­tion for more that what is listed 
  • Is nev­er to be FREE with­out exchange. 
  • Does not always have to refer to dig­i­tal media. Althought it helps to think of all of the items as being dupli­cates of an orig­i­nal item. 
  • Also if it does­n’t hurt too much, drop us a cred­it for com­ing up with this weird funky lit­tle term and it’s use. 
    Here’s the usage break-down using “Yourname.ProDuGi.com/ItemName a an example;
  • FIRST PART “Your­Name” = This sim­ply should be your name or orga­ni­za­tion etc. Use your own acronyms etc. 
  • SECOND PART “ProDuGi.com” = This should NOT be changed. This is a port­man­teau and stands for [PRO]ject [PRO]motion & [Du]plication via [GI]ft Dona­tion Drives. 
  • THIRD PART “Item­Name” = This can be replace by the name of the item up for dona­tion. Please use all low­er case letters. 
    Applying;
  • Add the below to the actu­al item. So that we can add your link to our ProDuGi.com for­ward­ing list. This link will tem­porar­i­ly stop then go direct­ly to the page of your choos­ing. Be sure to replace “Your­name” & “Item­Name” with your own infor­ma­tion as stat­ed above.

    An Asso­ci­at­ed Pro­Du­Gi Col­lab­o­ra­tive Item Project
    YourName.ProDuGi.com/ItemName

  • Send us the above adjust­ed url, the url/Internet loca­tion of where your Pro­DU­Gi item is list­ed, along with the actu­al pho­to of the Pro­Du­Gi item with the Pro­Du­Gi infor­ma­tion on it. 
  • After we add and con­firm that you have cre­at­ed a true Pro­Du­Gi list­ing, we will for­ward your url from ProDuGi.com to your url at “your site”. 

Peace.
