Open to suggestions???
Good idea (#3). Perhaps mods would consider banking our payments via their e-commerce solution until we hit critical mass and then broker the transfer of the funds to VG. I would even suggest that all purchasing members must be at least Level I supporters so that everyone has skin in the game, and there is a reasonable upside for the forum owners. Sounds like a 3-way win.

I guess I am out since I am not a site supporter. I'll just get one on my own.

That suggestion was not meant to be exclusionary (especially not against a fellow Free Stater). It was meant as an incentive for the JG moderators to serve as intermediaries to the transaction. Level I support is $5, hopefully not a dealbreaker for anyone who benefits from this site and who would benefit from the discount.

That said, the silence from the moderators on this idea is deafening.

Re: Visualgarage.com shark fin antenna group buy feeler!!!

Like the OP already stated, the deal isn't that great and the work probably not worth it to anyone.

There are going to be fees paid to paypal on both ends, are they willing to accept this and make it so we don't have to transfer extra money with paypal to cover these fees. At the end of the day, the savings will be negligible for the person doing all the leg work......and God forbid something gets messed up.

If the companies margins are that tight, then a group buy probably isn't a good idea.

I know, just being a smarta$$. But, my point was that when I pay the $5 (certainly no problem being a site supporter for that amount of money) the savings I gain through the group buy is washed out. I'd be better off on my own because I wouldnt be worried that someone else messed up my order because I couldnt place it myself using a code.

Visual garage missed the boat on this one.

I see your point about controlling your own order. I agree.
