Re: Rebuilding - Where do you start? (Project ARK)

This seems to be coming up a fair bit so I'll try to clarify; The images are there purely to represent the most likely scale and level of technological advancement that you're likely to reach if you were to start from scratch. It's not supposed to be a complete depiction of the target or layout. The...

Re: Rebuilding - Where do you start? (Project ARK)

Some interesting comments. The images, whilst terrible, were more illustrative than literal. A technology being blatantly obvious in its necessity to us in our modern world, is useless if we cannot build the underlying technologies required to manufacture it. Likewise, being modern doesn't make it a...

Salt

I've not seen a thread about one of the most important minerals for our survival yet (if someone could link me if there is one I'll remove this to that thread). Here I'll talk about the dietary requirement for salt, I leave it to someone in the First Aid forum to detail the homoeostatic effects & me...

Re: Chapter Status

Apologies I've been travelling with work. Crypto, Mystic; this is the same kind of bureaucratic diktat that gave ZS:X (and others) such a hard time when they were active that they got disillusioned with the whole premise and gave up. Clearly the arguments about the disparate nature of UK members & a...

Re: Chapter Status

I think you're taking my posts wrong. My goal is not to obstruct you, my goal is to help you understand the current chapter requirements and guidelines as they've been set out by the board, and to ensure that your efforts to restart this chapter will pass through the approval system cleanly. The ch...

Re: Chapter Status

I'm glad that you have so much enthusiasm towards getting ZSC010 operational again, and this is something that we'd like to see happen. Being obstructive isn't highly conducive to encouraging that to happen, is it? Because as has already been pointed out, there aren't enough active members that liv...

How many of the people posting these days live Live within reasonable travelling distance of a national meeting point? Plus these days the price of fuel is a lot more than it was in 2009. How long were we an “active” chapter? Not trying to pour cold water on the idea of becoming active again, but l...

Re: Chapter Status

Looking at this logically, what advantage do we gain from having an “active” chapter? As I see it we can still donate to a charity, organise mock bug outs and chat post on line as we are now. I don’t mean this as way to circumnavigate the rules, however I don’t believe we have enough members to set...

Re: Chapter Status

The chapter requirements are constantly being re-evaluated, the requirements today are different than they were in 2008/2009. I have already cued in the appropriate board member, we are in touch regularly and many of the things I have said here come from those discussions. feel free to elail chapte...

Re: Chapter Status

In addition, participation in online charity drives is not considered acceptable for chapter qualification events. What you're proposing is a completely virtual chapter that has no real-world existence. The closest thing that ZS has to this is the ZS Amateur Radio Club, which is not chapter. As I'v...

Re: Chapter Status

I touched on this in my other post, but I don't think that online meetings and online charity events will qualify towards chapter status. mystic_1 The formation of the first chapter was launched off the back of an online fundraiser, the discussion at the time was that the requirement only stipulate...

Re: Chapter Status

You mentioned it twice in your post, and this is the real underlying problem. It's not just an issue in Europe, ZS chapters are no longer considered to be statewide (i.e. ZSC017 - Florida) because that was too far for people to get together regular, and as a result many of these state-wide chapters...

Re: ZS 501(c)3........ You what??

Previous discussions with ZS:HQ never yielded anything productive but that was back when they were focussing purely on arranging their tax/income model for the US, being classed as an international charity (from a US govt perspective anyway) may well make it easier to extend the franchise internatio...
