    Perhaps we can find some coin addicts to work with Sudonim on a strategy plan and a time line.

    LOL,,,The bolded statements leave us where we were before Tlarson posted his thoughts. Funny how things go full circle and still no closer to any resolution.

    If we are going to do a GM.org coin then it could be any topic. Why not a memorial coin to Aefuss and LandRocket?

    Like I've said before, once the design is approved, the sales/distribution is ready to go, but as I'm not an artist, I'm relying on everyone else to come up with the art that we can (mostly) all agree on. If nobody has any other input on design, is one of the submitted designs something we can use, or work with to get to something we can use?

    Well, we must be moving forward - This thread was supposed to be asking if we wanted a coin or not, and we already have some designs discussed methods of promoting it!

    Regardless, I think someone needs to volunteer to help move the process along, post a thread asking for ideas and artwork, then one to vote on that artwork, and any other stages. Where are the coin lovers? Speak up, take on the challenge, and help with the process! Medawisla stepped up to the plate and took on responsibility of the newsletter, and she has done a great job at it. One of the main purposes for having a newsletter was to reach out to the members who don't visit often and let them know about projects like the coin. The site could use someone like her to help out on this project.

    As far as a memorial coin, I like the idea, but it may not be a coin that appeals to the masses. Great for us locals, however. Depends on who your target market is.

    This has been brought up with no luck. It seems that myself and two others are the only one that have had coin inputs. I have another one that I am working on but have not put it to design yet. It is all in my head right now (scary).

    Sheesh! If it's not a "Maine geocoin", should call it a "New Hampshire geocoin"?

The more input we have, the better the final result will be.
    They still object to any mention of this site on theirs. Both Hiram and myself have had our posts deleted without any explanation as to why either. Can't understand it but hey it's their site and they run it the way they want to.

    Has there been an agreement on what the coin might be or when? Is there a contest? Are there any designs submitted?
