Ashburn Farm does not have a bar code system. I am curious as to how much it would cost.
If you are on the Ashburn Farm HOA, I am pretty sure that the Broadlands HOA would be more than happy to disclose that information. I have to agree with Mr. Linux - for a NON Broadlands resident (using our forum) you see to be pretty interested...mmmm
as much as afgm likes to stir it up.. I'm sure its just an honest question.
Yah...it's not like they asked how much your salary was or what your social security is. Quit trying to read some intricate conspiracy theories into everything.
I wasn't; I was just making a comment. Just like you do everyday. Just because I asked the question, doesn't mean I have anything against former residents, such as you, coming over here and posting...
And don't get me started about 'reading some intricate conspiracy theories'. Each time I post something, you're the first one to jump at my throat. It's actually quite amusing...
Geez...it's an honest question. I just want to know if it is cheaper than our imbedded microchips used for resident control.
what another clever "brim-ism, afgm is not a resident of Broadlands, neither are you. However for years both of you seem to "stir up" things on the Broadlands HOA forum. The intent of the forum and the funding (hard and soft cost) comes from actual residence who pay HOA fees...so again KNOCK IT OFF.
As for questioning his intentions, it is reasonable, since I and Mr. Lunix are actual residence who pay the HOA fees. Afgm post, granted a valid question asked for the cost of such a project, that should be asked directly by the respective HOA's or he can come to the Broadlands HOA meetings and ask for the information...a public venue such as this puts the HOA and members on the stop.
Hmmmmm..........imbedding microchips into Broadlands residents to control them........I think I like that idea!!!!!!!!!
Nothing needs to be dropped. I'm sorry, but if you can't schedule 10 minutes out of one day over a several month period to stop by the HOA office, I guess you won't be using the pools next year.
Hey, Pea. YOU NEED TO KNOCK IT OFF. Brim was a resident and did pay his dues, just like Niel, PatsFan and a host of others who left. It's nice that they stay in touch.
AFGM, even tho he and I did not see eye to eye at first is a valued contributor to this board, for YEARS. Chill and have some coffee.
Seems to me if the system is digital we should be able to take our own pics. Even the Department of State allows digital pics to be used for passports. This system isn't a more secure, valid form of identification then a passport, is it?
True, but how do we then make sure the image is actually of the resident? Do we ask for notarized signatures? That's what needs to be done for pictures you submit for passports, right?
Issue I can see is say I know I'm not going to use my pool passes, I could potentially "sell" my passes to someone else, and use their digital image instead of mine, etc... The HOA then loses total control of who is actually using the pool. Not that the current system solves this issue, but we're trying to move to something more 'secure'...
I seriously don't see an issue with requesting that residents come in for a quick digital picture at the Nature Center, or during a Pool Pass picture drive at the Community Center... As Cliff noted, it's 10 minutes of time within a span of months...
Of course, we're still just throwing ideas around.
Ashburn Farm requires a picture ID. Upon registration the picture is taken, and an annual sticker is placed on it. When someone registers the following year they get a new sticker. Very similiar to your car license plate stickers.
Years ago we purchased a ID/photo making machine that is used to make the IDs. Our operating costs are now basically limited to the film and material for the badge.
Actually, last time I renewed passports, by mail, no notary needed. If some one sells the ID, you will know about it next year, when the ID changes. It really isn't much different then the proxys, do you really know the witness is a neighbor or just me signing it as a neighbor.
And looking at the mess just getting trash cans was, I really don't think the HOA is capable of pulling this off w/o major hassle. What happens when everyone procrastinates to last day and floods the office?
Man Homer - you use to be so laid back, maybe I hit a nerve? As for your response. Not going to happen, unless maybe you wanna make me a low-fay soy latte. The is a resouce for Broadlands homeowners...as per the website, forum rules and resources are coming from current homeowners that pay the HOA dues. Out of the nearly 4K+ combined post each has made only a slight fraction had some merit. Brim WAS a resident, Afgm is NOT...maybe the two of them can create their own website and blogg all day long . Still waiting on that latte...
What about new stickers? do you mail them or do people pick them up?
Pea: Pot kettle black. These boards would be boring if we kicked out the xenos. And I was using your style to highlight to you how you came across.
Pea, are you promoting keeping the cost of this system from Broadland resident's who read this forum? (stir stir stir)
I agree it is a valid question and one borne entirely of curiousity. Bar codes sound intriguing and I was wondering how much they cost.
They can either be picked up or mailed. A lot of folks come in for new IDs, especially the kids, as they somehow don't want their first grade "image" on the ID when they are now seventh graders.
Before this gets out of hand, my original comment was just that, a comment. I can see a lot of good from sharing information such as this between local HOA's...
I have nothing against AFGM; I was only trying to figure out if he had come across any info or ideas which he might be able to share...
Anyhow, without discussions between local HOA's, we would have never been able to switch trash services so quickly...
Let's not get caught up in all these side 'flames', and let's get back to the core issue; pool passes. The more ideas we throw around, and comments, the better. We're not going to come up with a full solution here, but the more ideas we're open to listen to, the better the final system will eventually become...
And trust me, the HOA and other involved parties (certain committees) are listening VERY closely to what everyone is saying here.
