Article Posting Guidelines are spelled out here. Thanks
Announcement: After 15 years of life, these boards have dwindled to a place for a mere handful of folks to post links and have the rare discussion. Having born the financial burden for both the hosting and the software for that same 15 year period, and just not having the time anymore for this effort, I have decided to shutdown these boards at the end of the USL & NASL season later this Fall. It has truly been a blast to have been part of growing a nation-wide fanbase thru internet interaction, that in 1999 was slim or non-existent for the Lower Divisions of Soccer. That has all changed and for the better. Fan support around the country is nothing like what it was when I started this, so from that perspective, I feel I accomplished my small part in contributing to growing that connection into what it is today. Thanks for everyone's support over the years, and especially for all the friendships across the country that Vicki and I have so enjoyed (and still do) over the years. Thanks !! Dan Barnes

Is there an active archive of what all the numbers are?

I ask because if I want to reup my membership upon my return to the cities, do I get my old number?

Whenever you reup your membership you'll get your old number back. Also, am I talking to my high school football team?

If you can meet up with somebody and hand them the $35, that can work if you don't mind squaring up address and other info over email later. All we really need is you name and email address, then we'll get the further info after. Honestly, that saves us $2 on the processing fee from Google. It adds some steps to maintaining the database, but that's no big deal.

Because I'm mostly talking to the inner circle here: THE EASIEST THING FOR US IS IF YOU DO THE GOOGLE WALLET THING, THEN PICK UP MERCHANDISE AT A TAILGATE or some other event. You don't have to care about what's easy for us, but that's the simplest, most cost-effective thing that doesn't cost a lot of volunteer time.

I'm trying to be a new member, here. I don't trust even me with my financial information, and definitely not Google. Pfutz emailed me already about the tifo support, but I though I could ask here as well:

I want to give you money and be a legit Dark Cloud, but not through Google. What's the next-best option? I can send checks or deliver cash.

I also want to support the opener tifo display, but I have no spare time. I do have some extra money, where can I send it?

And, for curiosity's sake: what is the current number range? 3-digits, 4-digits?

So, I've seen multiple people complain about using Google Wallet. Have I missed the evilness of it?

Welcom Frostbite! Feel free to pay with cash or credit in person at the next Dark Clouds event. We'll be having our annual pre-season supporters summit to elect a board, etc in February. Otherwise tailgates work as well.

Last season we had 103 paid members and we're at 27 for 2013 at the moment, seven of which are brand new paying members. The next new person will get number 111, but we won't be reserving a member number for new members. That would just get unwieldy.

BTW, I was looking at the member numbers for both seasons and thought people might be interested in knowing where DCs are at. 31% list Minneapolis, 22% we forgot to get a mailing address for, 15% are in St. Paul. We also have (or had) paying members in Florida, Texas, Arkansas, Wisconsin, Oregon and now Michigan. I thought we had some in Illinois, but maybe those are people we forgot to pester for a mailing address.

KJ, I don't think it's Wallet, per se, just Google in general that people are rabble rousing against. They're becoming the new Microsoft in terms of tech villainy... although they are at least 75% less openly evil than Facebook.

I have no specific complaint about Google Wallet. I just don't like having my bank account info all over the internet. If something should happen to my identity some day, I don't want to have to visit a hundred different institutions to try and protect myself. Just a personal preference.

Plus, Google takes some of that money and I think the DC deserve it more.

I'll wait for info about the summit, then.

I see a member benefit listed as discounted tickets at the matches. Can I use that to get noobies to games? Or is that more like a discount I should only use for family or something?
