Why are we doing this?
- We print 500,000 pages per semester (and increasing), but as a student group we don't have the financial resources or volunteer manpower to sustain this.
- We print 2.5 times our printers' maximum recommended monthly print volumes on average (often more). Our printers require constant cleaning due to frequent toner leaks, which reduce reliability and print quality.
- We have had quota complaints (members forgetting to log off, botched jobs), which would be minimized if each member's semesterly quota could only decreased by a certain amount each day.
- The lengths of lines waiting for printing continues to increase.
