[9:05pm] Pirate_Joe: no worries, Bosun_laptop

[9:09pm] bosun_laptop: hello
[9:09pm] jokeefe: are we recording the names and addresses of everyone who buys things/donates?
[9:09pm] OGPAF: yes, but who is 'we'? technically the site exists as an influencer, not part of the 729
[9:10pm] jokeefe: and verifying that they are a us citizen or permanent resident
[9:10pm] OGPAF: we could, but not yet
[9:10pm] jokeefe: 1) Do we have a bank account? 2) what are we registered with? 3) have we asked whomever we are registered with what the rules are for selling things?
[9:11pm] OGPAF: this needs to be part of the introduction/orientation to the site
[9:11pm] Pirate_Joe: We do have a bank account, one that I would link to the site.
[9:11pm] OGPAF: we can do much much bigger things here
[9:11pm] Poet joined the chat room.
[9:11pm] Pirate_Joe: Not registered yet, that would be the next step
[9:11pm] Pirate_Joe: Welcome Poet
[9:11pm] Poet_Web left the chat room. (Quit:
[9:12pm] Poet: Ahoy! I think the Stockholm server went down.
[9:12pm] jokeefe: It would be best to answer question 2 & 3 before we start selling stuff
[9:13pm] bosun_laptop: we need an audit trail
[9:13pm] jokeefe: aye
[9:13pm] Pirate_Joe: Bosun_laptop, what would you need to get it going with the FEC?
[9:14pm] jokeefe:
[9:14pm] papegaai: Title: Guides | FEC (at
[9:14pm] Pirate_Joe: I could meet up with you on Thursday mid day if you are available Jokeefe
[9:14pm] bosun_laptop: If Mass has a registered FEC account I need that - as the wish a list of any aaffiliated accounts.
[9:15pm] jokeefe: sorry, wrong link. this is the right one
[9:15pm] papegaai: Title: Guides | FEC (at
[9:15pm] jokeefe: Mas. does not yet have an FEC account
[9:15pm] bosun_laptop: Other than that
[9:16pm] bosun_laptop: OK I'll finish it tghis week
[9:16pm] Pirate_Joe: Did I ever send you the bank information?
[9:16pm] Pirate_Joe: Bosun?
[9:17pm] bosun_laptop: I will call or text if I don't have it.
[9:17pm] Pirate_Joe: Ok. I'll plan to call the FEC for both our MA account and for the National level no later than Thursday
[9:17pm] bosun_laptop: I don't think so but I will look through my mail etc.
[9:17pm] Pirate_Joe: I don't think so either.
[9:18pm] Pirate_Joe: I'll send it to save sometime after this meeting.
[9:18pm] Pirate_Joe: OGPAF, please refrain from going live until we are 100% on what we can and cannot do.
[9:18pm] OGPAF: too late
[9:19pm] Pirate_Joe: You can take down the items for sale though, correct?
[9:19pm] OGPAF: but we need to be clear - the site is not part of the 729 at this point, so there is no liability
[9:19pm] Pirate_Joe: It is our intent to make it so though, correct?
[9:19pm] OGPAF: this is a way bigger question - not trying to bust balls
[9:20pm] OGPAF: I have set this up so that all entities, chapters can collect, sell, receive
[9:20pm] OGPAF: it depends on which domain/url things come thru
[9:20pm] OGPAF: candidates too
[9:20pm] OGPAF: even individual campaigns
[9:20pm] bosun_laptop: some things need to be walled off.

[9:21pm] OGPAF: right now it is entirely walled off from the 729
[9:22pm] bosun_laptop: OK - think we have upstream IRC issues as well currently.
[9:22pm] Pirate_Joe: We want to be careful on how our image is used.  We are not doing this for profits but to make real changes.
[9:22pm] OGPAF: and, I suggest as I have from the beginning that we leave it that way
[9:22pm] OGPAF: I get it
[9:22pm] Pirate_Joe: k
[9:22pm] Pirate_Joe: thank you
[9:23pm] Poet: bosun_laptop: I timed out from and had to choose a different server
[9:23pm] OGPAF: I promise to share fully when we can all share screens
[9:23pm] OGPAF: its complicated, but I will try to make it easy
[9:23pm] Pirate_Joe: Well, that brings me to the next major change I would like to discuss we you all.
[9:23pm] bosun_laptop: No problem, the world is complicated.
[9:24pm] OGPAF: arrrrgh
[9:24pm] Pirate_Joe: Which is the platform by which we hold these meetings.
[9:24pm] Pirate_Joe: However to do my suggestion justice, I planned to have our discussion on meeting platforms for next week.
[9:25pm] bosun_laptop: OK
[9:25pm] Pirate_Joe: To wrap up this current issue, motion to make us compliant with the FEC.
[9:25pm] OGPAF: are we not?
[9:25pm] bosun_laptop: 2nd, vote
[9:25pm] Pirate_Joe: All in favor?
[9:25pm] Pirate_Joe: We are not, we need to be listed with the FEC
[9:25pm] OGPAF: ah - aye
[9:26pm] Pirate_Joe: Aye
[9:26pm] bosun_laptop: We are indifferent because we have done nothing yet to ire the FEC
[9:26pm] jokeefe: aye
[9:26pm] bosun_laptop: aye
[9:26pm] Pirate_Joe: Motion passes.
