Let's stop the confusion right now. The Board had nothing to do with the original descision of the Geocoin Committee to limit the geocoin voting to MnGCA Members that agreed to the Bylaws.

The Geocoin Committee Chair approached the Webmaster and said this is what they decided on and the Webmaster made it happen.

Now that the uproar has subsided and the Geocoin Committee has rethought their descision the Webmaster will now modify the usergroups as they wish.

I say again, end the confusion, the Board had nothing to do with the Geocoin Committee's original descision.

Do you not see the confusion between the President, the Webmaster, the Vice President, and the Committee Chair being two people? Not to mention a comittee member that could not vote on their own decision till now.

Stop feeding us trolls.

Rouster-

What, you're interested in being a member again? If not, why are you wasting the MnGCA's time?

I don't speak for the MnGCA. I'm a member, and I'm getting really sick of a few morons wasting the Board's time with the same questions over and over again and people whining about not knowing how to click a box. I'm also sick of the BS about the MnGCA is a big group of buddies and how everyone else is "ignored." Anyone that knows anything about the organization would know that is completely false.

For those of you that want to get involved, be involved. For those of you who want to whine and complain, get out. This especially applies to people that intentionally are not MnGCA Members that want to whine about MnGCA Member operations.

Just cut it out.

What I know about this organization- is that they really dont care for input from concerned cachers in MN, if they havent given a name and address to the organization. The rest of what I know is tucked away waiting for use.

Then I'll just tell you point blank that you don't know what you are talking about. Join up and be active or stop wasting the MnGCA's time. What you're doing now is being a jerk. All you do is whine and complain. Having the "rest of what [you] know" being "tucked away waiting for use" only goes to show that your intent isn't to help the organization, but to fight it. Be an asset to the organization, even if that means helping to change it, or shut up.

In other words, provide name and adress to the Org.

Yeah? expressing opionions isnt whining and complaining. Being a jerk is treating people like you are now.

Not quite true. Publishing what I have would be pretty bad for the Organization, (which is why I havent) but would surely help it in the long run.

so, I am a jerk? OK then.

That's cool, Thanks. If it works for me I'll vote, if not, lesson learned to be
more attentive next time around.

Thanks-

As such I will be working with the webmaster to open the permissions of the voting forum to those that met the definition of MnGCA member at the time of the Fall Membership meeting.

A pretty good example of the attitude I have "whined and complained" about. If this was the represetative that MnGCA put forward, I think most people would quite, like he asks us to.

Thanks for your wonderful respect and caring attitude. Let me join a few more goups with you. What a great way to go through life.

Now Eisenhower, he's a Russian spy,
Lincoln, Jefferson and that Roosevelt guy.
To my knowledge there's just one man
That's really a true American: George Lincoln Rockwell.
I know for a fact he hates Commies cus he picketed the movie Exodus.

A saxophone someplace far off played as she was walking on by the arcade,
as the light bust through a beat-up shade where he was waking up,
she dropped a coin into the cup of a blind man at the gate
and forgot about a simple twist of fate.

Now, the man on the stand he wants my vote,
He's a-runnin' for office on the ballot note.

Bob Dylan

Edit: Took out the last few lines, as I thought they twisted the meaning of my post. I was only trying to imply that, this was more ‘on topic’ than previous posts. Have a nice day.

FLASH FLASH FLASH

The geocoin voting forum has been opened to forum participants that were eligable to vote in this years Fall Elections. If you were eligable to vote this year then you should have access to the geocoin vote forum listed below.

If you still do not have access and believe that you were eligable to vote please contact me and I will research the issue. It is possible that a member or two may have been missed in the initial cut over. So we will work the issue. But remember you must have been able to vote for this years board in order to be able to vote for the coin design.

I believe that in doing so we have addressed the concerns of the individuals that have spoken out.
