Ok people I’ve been pondering this for a while. I’d like to create a list of confirmed, known & trusted esk8.news members who will sponsor their address as a place to ship your board when traveling to their city.
As a global vagabond I know the importance and desire of needing my board (that’s why I had @longhairedboy build my travel board). However, many people don’t have travel boards and I’d certainly like my big boards on some trips so I propose this to the community …
we create a list of volunteers in different cities all over the world that will receive members boards who are traveling to nearby cities.
A) as a community we set standards that these volunteers must meet in order to be considered for their city that is certified by our overlords in the form of a badge as well as a name on the list
B) we find a lawyer member of our community who is willing to write the bloody fucking unnecessarily necessary documents to protect these members when people ship them a $500-$5k toy across the globe
we create a non monetary form of payment as a reward to these wonderful people (group rides with members we wouldn’t otherwise meet!!!)
we set requirements that people shipping the boards to our volunteers must meet
A) shipping insurance
B) liability wavers
Nashville checking in. Pretty much mark me for most of the southeast. Would be glad to help out someone traveling. I’ve had lots of help traveling to mtn bike and it can be the difference in a good trip and a bad one.
I think what we want is something unofficial. Maybe put a poll up with everyone’s names and people can vote only if they truly trust this person and met them in real life? Maybe folks can reply with an anecdote or story of an interaction that led to their trust?
For example, I vote on @Ace and reply to the poll saying “I’ve met him in person multiple times as well as his wonderful wife. Also a lot of my friends also know him in person and is well regarded in our social circles” etc etc etc
I dont wanna put mods in the position of having to vett people officially.
