[9:04pm] bosun_laptop: sorry connectivity issues [9:05pm] Pirate_Joe: I would like to leave the floor to you OGPAF, but first a quick question. Has the site made any sales of yet? [9:05pm] Pirate_Joe: no worries, Bosun_laptop [9:05pm] OGPAF: nope - nothing is connected on the backend of the site [in re shopify] [9:06pm] OGPAF: getting ready to order sample though - hopefully this week-ish [9:06pm] Poet_Web joined the chat room. [9:06pm] OGPAF: also still need to connect to amazon, ebay, etc. [9:06pm] OGPAF: facebook [9:06pm] Pirate_Joe: Ok, so is there a way to collect all the information we need in order to stay compliant. [9:07pm] OGPAF: not sure I understand the question [9:07pm] Pirate_Joe: Jokeefe, you are better at articulating what needs to be done. May you? [9:08pm] hvxgr left the chat room. (Ping timeout: 255 seconds) [9:08pm] Bosun left the chat room. (Ping timeout: 255 seconds) [9:08pm] Poet left the chat room. (Ping timeout: 255 seconds) [9:08pm] K`Tetch_ left the chat room. (Ping timeout: 255 seconds) [9:09pm] bosun_laptop: hello [9:09pm] jokeefe: are we recording the names and addresses of everyone who buys things/donates? [9:09pm] OGPAF: yes, but who is 'we'? technically the site exists as an influencer, not part of the 729 [9:10pm] jokeefe: and verifying that they are a us citizen or permanent resident [9:10pm] OGPAF: we could, but not yet [9:10pm] jokeefe: 1) Do we have a bank account? 2) what are we registered with? 3) have we asked whomever we are registered with what the rules are for selling things? [9:11pm] OGPAF: this needs to be part of the introduction/orientation to the site [9:11pm] Pirate_Joe: We do have a bank account, one that I would link to the site. [9:11pm] OGPAF: we can do much much bigger things here [9:11pm] Poet joined the chat room. [9:11pm] Pirate_Joe: Not registered yet, that would be the next step [9:11pm] Pirate_Joe: Welcome Poet [9:11pm] Poet_Web left the chat room. (Quit: https://webchat.pirateirc.net/) [9:12pm] Poet: Ahoy! I think the Stockholm server went down. [9:12pm] jokeefe: It would be best to answer question 2 & 3 before we start selling stuff [9:13pm] bosun_laptop: we need an audit trail [9:13pm] jokeefe: aye [9:13pm] Pirate_Joe: Bosun_laptop, what would you need to get it going with the FEC? [9:14pm] jokeefe: https://www.fec.gov/help-candidates-and-committees/guides/ [9:14pm] papegaai: Title: Guides | FEC (at www.fec.gov) [9:14pm] Pirate_Joe: I could meet up with you on Thursday mid day if you are available Jokeefe [9:14pm] bosun_laptop: If Mass has a registered FEC account I need that - as the wish a list of any aaffiliated accounts. [9:15pm] jokeefe: sorry, wrong link. this is the right one https://www.fec.gov/help-candidates-and-committees/guides/?tab=political-action-committees [9:15pm] papegaai: Title: Guides | FEC (at www.fec.gov) [9:15pm] jokeefe: Mas. does not yet have an FEC account [9:15pm] bosun_laptop: Other than that [9:16pm] bosun_laptop: OK I'll finish it tghis week [9:16pm] Pirate_Joe: Did I ever send you the bank information? [9:16pm] Pirate_Joe: Bosun? [9:17pm] bosun_laptop: I will call or text if I don't have it. [9:17pm] Pirate_Joe: Ok. I'll plan to call the FEC for both our MA account and for the National level no later than Thursday [9:17pm] bosun_laptop: I don't think so but I will look through my mail etc. [9:17pm] Pirate_Joe: I don't think so either. [9:18pm] Pirate_Joe: I'll send it to save sometime after this meeting. [9:18pm] Pirate_Joe: OGPAF, please refrain from going live until we are 100% on what we can and cannot do. [9:18pm] OGPAF: too late [9:19pm] Pirate_Joe: You can take down the items for sale though, correct? [9:19pm] OGPAF: but we need to be clear - the site is not part of the 729 at this point, so there is no liability [9:19pm] Pirate_Joe: It is our intent to make it so though, correct? [9:19pm] OGPAF: this is a way bigger question - not trying to bust balls [9:20pm] OGPAF: I have set this up so that all entities, chapters can collect, sell, receive [9:20pm] OGPAF: it depends on which domain/url things come thru [9:20pm] OGPAF: candidates too [9:20pm] OGPAF: even individual campaigns [9:20pm] bosun_laptop: some things need to be walled off. [9:21pm] OGPAF: right now it is entirely walled off from the 729 [9:22pm] bosun_laptop: OK - think we have upstream IRC issues as well currently. [9:22pm] Pirate_Joe: We want to be careful on how our image is used. We are not doing this for profits but to make real changes.
