Okay I'm super embarrassed not only was that a really bad time for that, but I actually proof read that sentence because I didn't want this to happen. Normally typos don't bother me because I know I'm a crappy typist and my keyboard is kinda spotty sometimes, but that was unacceptable.

By my own admission I should probably let zodac in based on his reputation as a good folder (plus he's got the whole editor thing going for him). But zodac gave me a really hard time about making this club official so I'm only returning the favor.
It's understandable that people are going to have to shutdown for periods of time, that's unavoidable. The only requirement for staying in the club is that you at least fold with the intention of doing it 24/7. I hope this clears things up.
As for the 100 member surprise/prize I need some final opinions, do we sell raffle tickets and purchase a prize with the money? Or do we do something else?
I said before about the raffle that I think it's not the best idea, I think if it doesn't take off then you'll just have a small amount of people that have 50% of the chances to win, and then if it does take off then you'll have a really expensive item, and I think that there isn't a whole lot of gain in giving one person a really big prize when that money would be better spent by each of us individually on our electricity or our own upgrade plans. I think I just like the idea of a smaller prize and random drawing better, I don't see anything wrong with the newegg giftcard.
I understand not kicking people out for any hiccup in production, but I'd like to think that we do check the members production every once in a while just to make sure they are 24/7 or atleast really solid overall if there are some small gaps. I know this club isn't a big deal but I really think that being a 24/7 folder is a title worth being proud of so wee ought to make sure that our members uphold that. There are lot's of clubs I could have joined that might seem more cool or exclusive (like a Lightning club or SB club or something) but I don't care about those things, this club is the most important to me by far. That's why I want to defend it's rules and honor from attacks, even from scary mean old editors.Edited by juano - 7/29/11 at 9:54am
