As far as I know it's 200 posts to become a senior member. And yes, further down the road it would cause problems recruiting from the web but we gotta have a starting point. After the web gets up and going, the "senior members" can vote on non forum members getting their right to vote on club matters.[/QUOTE]

Gotta disagree with that, as the only reasoning. I'd recommend either a senior member (by posts) or a 'lurker' who has been a member for quite a while who simply doesn't post that much, that may be a one year member but only have fifteen or twenty posts.

Ok, how about this. You get a vote if you have been a member for 4 months or have posted over 200 posts. Will that be a good starting point? Later on, we can get rid of this rule and open it to everyone.

If your going to take donations you need to create a not for profit LLC and file for a 501 3c with the IRS which shows others it's a not for profit organization.

Thanks for the info. When/if we decide to take donations, I'll remember that.

Good, does anybody else have a problem with this or something they would like to add?

Your close enought to 4 months. (we'll go by the month you joined, not the day.) You joined in August so you would be eligable for membership in November. We'll just forget those last 6 days.

@ TexasWW, My sister is an accountant, and I'm sure I could talk her into helping. She's also a gunowner too.

That would be a big help too.

I just read about how websites and forums make money from ads (google pays you). Basically, when someone clicks on an add, the website gets like $0.05-$0.10 per click. That seems small but it adds up. The woodworking forum I belong to (Lumberjocks.com) makes about $70.00 per day and is worth over $40,000.00 Just from the ads. I wonder how well that would work with our site? (They would be gun ads of course)

sounds like a man with a plan.
If we get into making some money, we have to figure out what to do with it.
