Agreed a supporters list would be a very good idea.
Also I just checked registering domain names.. a first on this one too. I found www.totalregistration.com will only cost ?8 or $12 or 12 Euros.
Its amazing to see what IMC has become. I was involved in the first interactive site (and office) on J18 in London, I took the photos. It is amazing to realise the reach and structure that now exists.. an inspiration and credit to everyone who has taken it on board.
I will happily re-register the site if that is what everyone agrees on.. I'm just not sure if it should be IMC 'ownership' though for the registration purposes.
I will be heading to Baghdad very soon and could take cash in. Alternatively Are there any CPT or VITW delegations going?

>I think the many points made by Sheri, I think it was, of Seattle and by Boud of Poland-IMC, make absolute sense. Also, what do people feel about changing the listserver to baghdad-imc "supporter"? I, personally, agree with Ramzi about the getting out of the way once people in Baghdad can swing this on their own. I guess they will let people know when that is. Does anyone want to write to Palestine and the other local areas IMC groups -- anyone have contact with them? If not, I will, but again, the focus as of yet is to get this paper off the ground and just to start the process of supporting an IMC - if that is even where folks on the ground in Baghdad want to go. So, as last round-ups -- who needs help with the "affiliate" website and how? Where does money for these things listed below get sent? Cheers all!Crystal
