Default New idea of membership

I think we should have some mechanisam like ANTI IMMIGRATION website has. If person wants to be a member of IV first of all he / she should fill out basic details and then send few faxes online after successful sending of message person can be a member.

By doing this we can stop anti immigrant to open multiple account as long term it will hurt them by sending faxes in our favour. Benefits are as below.

(1) Less anti immigrants account
(2) If anti immigrants are creating multiple account they will stop it.
(3) We should have re activate your account system which will force all existing member to send faxes to maintain their membership
(4) We can as team comeup few faxes in general for now to send to senators , white house. Once CIR movement pick up we can alter fax content.
(5) We can stop creation of account by automatic software.

I am not familiar with any FORUM site software. Admin or Core team can look into this idea. I am ready to help if you need any technical help ( small code writing , config etc.. )

We should not force public to join IV based on Donation. That we can leave up to members. But this is minimum we can do. If person is really immigrants then he / she will not hesitate to send faxex.

there are two parts to IV
1) the forum - often immigration related questions etc. posted and responded to
2) Legal Immigration activism - "serious" stuff - like flower campaign, lobbying, advocacy etc.

The first should remain free - the "honey pot" to attract people here (as opposed to other sites that offer similar features - eg. lawyer forums, tracking forums etc)

The second is the paid part - including the forums related to this piece.

First of all we should not force people to Donate if they want to contribute to IV in our cause. I think it is ok we can ask people for Donation. By doing that we may end up loosing some people who may be willing to help in other way like letter or call campaign.

Sesond we are not asking to send fax every thread we post. Its a one time when you open an account. And it should not de motivate people from opening acount. So many sites open account right away while so many sites sends email to activate membership and still people wait for email to come and get their membership.

its a good idea to verify that who ever is registering is not anti-immigrant.

How about phone verification? Users dont have to publicly display their phone members.

New users can enter phone no. while registering, and the location should be mandatory..so that way, someone from local/regional state chapters can give a quick call and verify.

For all existing users, we can force them to verify themselves by calling local state chapters..

I know it sounds like a big effort but any takers?

If I am anti and I have 2-3 phones I can create 2-3 account and create controversial threads to create fight between users. But this fax thing will help our cause.

It is incredible that you are making so much effort so that you do not have to pay $25

This is desi mentality at it best and you are my hero.

so what do you think anti will not send fax?
What will stop anti from just sending a fax and pretending to be pro-immigration?
