    Hello Ventura County FF. I'm from LAFF..uh the Los Angeles Area Fan Force.
    You guys have a really nice site!! One question, do you guy collect dues in order to pay for the site? We were just discussing about creating a site for ourselves too. But I know nothing about creating sites, and paying for it or anything.

    We all chipped in about a buck to pay for the domain name (it's like $8 at www.godaddy.com). The site is located on my server which I pay for, I had extra space so it was no big deal.

    If any of your members has AOL or Earthlink (or most any other ISP) I think they give you a small amount of server space for free. It's probably enough to host your site.

    If none of that made sence I'll put it in non-computer nerd terms: you could probably get a site for under $10 a year if someone knows how to make it.

    If you want more info or whatever just let me know.

    It's no secret that we run a multi-billion dollar corporation now. I guess we can come clean. :(

    I hear the VCFF will go public next week. I think I'll buy some stock.

    Eh, I already bought most of it. You can have some, if you want.

    I only want 51%, that's not asking too much is it?

    I'd like to volunteer to do something...then maybe I can have some sort of title, too!

    Like "Official Old Person of the VCFF"...

    :D

    Well, if you're good with words and you wanna fill out the info for our website you're welcome to try that. I don't think GB would mind. All you need to do is go to my post from 3/24 on this topic, and either post, PM, or e-mail me the info. Maybe your title can be like "Public Relations" or something? I don't know if that's something you'd be into but it would be nice to get that website done.

    Working on it, Keiran! (Um, as in I need to PM Mara.)

    Yeah, Zaranne, let us know what you want to be known as/for in our FF. Maybe I can PM MJF about both you and Keiran at the same time.

    OK, getting off my teacher-seat and onto FF stuff...<shoves grading aside> BTW, I can't believe you guys put that in your sigs.....well, might as well include it! (Zaranne, I thought seriously about your comment; I still like the sound of "wise" and "experienced" could really get taken the wrong way out there. (Imagine that!) )

    How about this for our main page:

    Welcome to the main page for the Ventura County Fan Force. We are a diverse group of individuals with one thing in common: being dedicated Star Wars fans. Also known as the "Ventura County Fan Force: The Special Edition" (take *that* LFL!), we wear our membership in the world of Star Wars fandom proudly. Our monthly meetings are filled with fun, food, and lively discussion about everything from the EU to gaming, handmaidens to Han, upcoming events and our own stories.

    News section: Uh, could we put lists of site updates, and random tidbits from TOS (the official site) and TFN's main page, with links to both? (Maybe Zaranne would like to be our newsperson and keeper of the minutes for meetings?)

    Info section: See above

    Events section: I think we should list both meetings and events that we are either remotely involved with or attending.
    DATES:
    Next meeting - Saturday May 24, 12:30 at Coco's in Camarillo

    Comic-Con - July 17-20 in San Diego

    John Williams concert at the Hollywood Bowl - Saturday August 30


    Contact section: Have both you and I up there, you for tech stuff, and the cityrep@venturacountyff.org for contact info

    Links section: Who should we link? Link to our discussion board, the Fan Force main page at TFN, the Official Site, and the TFN main page for now

    Members section: List us all! :~D
