Why is Oreprint a cash only service?
I'm not sure what the justification was for Mines implementing the Ore Print system but I think its a little ridiculous that we have to buy credits on prepaid cards and only with cash. The current system makes no sense, if I need to print a 5 page paper and I come up $0.06 short for just one page and I don't have cash the only option is to trek across campus to an ATM, which may or may not have money, get the minimum $20, come back to wherever I was printing, break the $20 so I can get a $5 or $1, buy a card, redeem said card then reprint. All because I needed 6 cents. Really? We even have an online system set up to redeem the cards. Why can't we just make a payment from something like a debit or credit card either online or at the desks?
OrePrint is a new service and CCIT plans to iterate and improve it over the next few years. USG communicated with the head of CCIT your suggestion so it can be iterated in future OrePrint services.
