: I think before this kind of issue can be decided people need to decide what
: being a member really means. Do members pay dues? Do members have to
: contribute certain things? Do we want a lot of members or only a select few
: and what criteria should be used to determine whether someone's "in" or not?

These are important questions. Ones I'm hoping the current group
will help resolve. I will write up a new thread, and ask all to
help hash this out.

: Until people address some of these questions, the idea of restricting things
: to "just members" is rather silly. Currently all one has to do to become a
: member is fill out a web form (and we don't even verify that any of the
: supplied info is correct). Restricting things to just members is basically
: meaningless.

I would be surprised if the current group decides to keep the membership
so easy to join. I would expect qualifications, code of ethics, and
such to be set. Also some way for members to "retire" any other members
which could (or cause) harm to the professional reputation of TeamJava.

Also, I would expect that members would only share their valuable contributions
with others that also share...
