Couldn't it be done by changing the T.O.S. and emailing everyone that has signed up for MacMod, so if they 't want to, they can just reply "yes"? I bet atleast 100 people would say yes, so that should fix that problem.
Just a crazy idea

Good idea, As for Communication... ICQ, AIM, MSN, Yahoo messengers might work... Or other brands (I have the ones I listed... ) I would say that AIM has the best interface for meetings... And asuming that you all have macs... (Being as this is macmod.com) I would guess that you all have iChat. (?) So lets all make a new SN for Macmod.com only... then we will be able to not be bogged down with other friends when we are having a meeting...
Ok my new SN is MMKnifeLord , For the people who are still using their 1998 screen name... this is how you make a new one... Go to http://www.aim.com click on "Download" (dont worrie you dont download the version you might already have... its just a new page) then click on "New users click here" and you can make a new sn...
(PS: I sugest using MM before your desired screen name, MM standing for MacMod.)

I think that before we even make it official we need figure out who represents us and who does whatever else that needs to be done. that way once its rolling we won't be struggling for answers or what to do.
I think it would be the best first thing to do.

Ok, as far as communication is concerned, the forums will do for basic information passing. For meetings, I agree with Tutan, I think that an IRC is the best way to go. I think that could be incorporated into the site and loaded on the server. A new section can be added to the main menu for the MUG as well. Whitlock's recommendation to send out a bulk email to get 100 people to agree to join the MUG is a good idea as well. As soon as all of the basics are worked out on this, then we can proceed to do all of the other. Do we have to have 100 interested people before we sign up? Do you have to give the names of 100 people, or, does Apple take your word for it?
Once all of this is figured out, the hierarchy will need to be determined for the conducting and organization of mettings, etc.
