    Hello Odysseus, what an extremely generous offer. That was so very kind of you. What a sweetheart you must be.

    Good news is that in addition to the information you provided above, Copper now has the contact information to an individual who owns servers. He has one server set aside exclusively for not for profits. I believe there are no bandwidth restrictions, 100 gb e-mail accounts, and a host of other perks that I don't fully understand but the greatest advantage would be no pop up ads, no pop under ads, no banners, no spyware, no malware, and no monthly fees. The costs of getting servers to host a group that aren't ad supported are rather high these days let alone one that is supported by a live human being. Additionally, he has state of the art security which is an added bonus. Copper volunteered to pursue this offer last night and I am sure she will pursue your offer too as it looks equally as attractive.

    Yes, www.NASC.org was taken by the National Association of Student Councils and www.NASC.com was taken by some soccer camp organization. Other domain possibilities were discussed last night and I believe a domain was chosen that best meets the needs of the Conservancy. What a bummer to find that a student council group had that .org domain.

    Someone volunteered to pay for a 3-year domain registration as well as a few other miscellaneous fees so the conservancy is ok there.

    Your'e very welcome for the offer. I think it is too bad that NASC.com is simply being used to direct people to two seperate links. What a waste! I was trying to get in contact with their webmaster...but there wasn't a link.

    Well, if you guys need my space let me know. I plan on renewing my server subscription every year so you would have somewhere guaranteed with NO ADS or anything as well.

    Keep me posted...

    Is there anyway someone in charge of organizing the website could contact me ASAP and let me know if my help is needed? When at first I felt useful and probably an asset to this conservation group, I am beginning to feel that any offer of mine is expendable.

    If there really is nothing I can do to help, let me know. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] So, I can stop checking in on a message I am not receiving. Thanks.

    Hang in there Odysseus. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] These things happen slowly as sometimes its hard getting in contact with certain people. I'm sure once we determine where the server is going to be, then we can get more specific direction and take up some offers on help with website. At that point, you might contact Carl to see if he wants to handle it or if he'd like being relieved of the responsibility.

    And I'm sorry for my lack of presence here but I have a few things to deal with that are taking my time.

    Whatever server is decided upon (I don't think it matters too much...we just need a space), then Carl needs to be contacted to find out how we get his sample set up uploaded to the space. Then I guess we just need to decide who will manage it, what needs to go on it and gather that material for the webmaster.

    Odysseus I will be in contact with you soon. I am waiting on a response from a friend of Laura's. I will be taking up that $10 offer for at least myself. It is a very good offer. I do a lot of voluntary help to the communities in the area. The sites will make it possible to reach a much larger group. Your assistance is much appreciated.
    I am just like a Super Hero, but without the power or motivation.................and the funky suit.

    Once we have a server confirmed for us to use, just email me and I will contact Carl about it. He has offered to work the site unless we would prefer one of our volunteers to do it. Or both perhaps unless that would be confusing. As per our last communication, I believe he is just waiting to hear that we have a place to store our website. I'd like to get an address as soon as possible so I can put it on the brochure I have made up.

    Laura...a rough of a brochure is posted in here somewhere. Its not 100% complete yet as I'm waiting to be able to add contact name and web address. It wouldn't look too good to send that out and not have an official website...although I guess a generic one would do in a pinch. I need to get these done as Schloaty wants some.


    OK...I found it. The rough is posted at the bottom of this thread.
