Many of the members are professionals in their fields and they have to make a living. So, they often charge their fee in 1/2 Dorks, 1/2 real money. Similarly, if someone makes a cake with ingredients that cost £3, they will often pass on the 'real money' cost of materials, plus 'their time' charged in Dorks.

Dorks are what you make of them - the more you put in, the more you get out !
