Congrats to Steve Gorrell who became our last member approved before our membership moratorium takes place on GMS. As with anything, there is a tendency for folks to abuse a tool. On GMS, we have seen an uptick in posts that don’t exactly encompass what GMS is meant to be. So, starting today I will begin to analyze who we want our fellow members to be and how to deal with those who we don’t. In the meanwhile a membership moratorium will be put in place. Once I feel confident in the new membership policy, the moratorium will be lifted.
At 14,000 members we have a nice group of folks who are largely considerate of others. But, as often is the case, there are a handful of people who will abuse it. In order to make sure GMS continues to be a useful place to visit, we will get a handle on it.
With that said, non-members are welcome to continue visiting the site to read the posts, but membership will be reserved for those that have proven themselves to be valuable and considerate members. Of course, there will be disagreements on a host of topics, but the goal is to keep things productive and largely civil.

Could this site do any online seminars or webcasts about the leasing process or a panel discussion on whats happening in our various counties. The posting of messages is helpful but I think a webinar discussion that devotes some serious time to a topic such as leasing, seismic testing, fracking, etc. would be very helpful in educating all of us.
yes, Susan that is a great concept.
Susan: Yesterday, we communicated about Leases in Morgan County, I believe. I don't see them on this site now.. I am never confident of how to manipulate these websites. Maybe , Keith, moved them since they might have belonged on a different venue or maybe my mind is recollecting incorrectly,,lol. I look forward to some clarification. Thanks,, Bill
