For anyone not aware @Barra has asked me to come on board to assist him during the tours for security reasons. I'll be talking with Barra, about this hopefully later today if both of our schedules permit. Once we discuss this, either Barra or I will be posting the new requirements. From preliminary talks with Barra, there basically will be two routes to take. The two routes will be A. Providing a lot more information that will be verified. This is what Barra and I will be discussing. B. Providing the same basic information already required by Barra's tours and in addition providing a valid Credit Card, to be submitted to the manufacturer of the gear being toured for a security deposit. I will give you all the preliminary requirements that I gave to Barra so you guys can have an idea of what steps may be required. 1. State Issued ID card or Driver's license with photo and address. 2. Address on State issued ID must match shipping address 3. Copy of utility bill in the participants name. Utility bill address/name must match ID card and shipping address 4. Working phone number, Cell phone or landline along with a photo with participants name and address on the bill. No Google voice or other free phone numbers and no prepaid cell phones. 5. Valid email address 6. Employer name - phone number (verification may be required) 7. Social medial profile - Facebook or Linked-In, etc. Required to add BulldogXTRM as a friend. 8. Join Head-Fi tours group page on Facebook that will be a private group and make at least one post acknowledging acceptance of the tour terms. 9. Also posting the same acceptance on the Head-Fi.org tour page. All participants must do these next steps or will be excluded from future tours. 1. Must notify Barra, BulldogXTRM, previous participant, and the next participant via group email that the kit has been received. 2. Must notify Barra, BulldogXTRM and the next participant via group email that the kit has been shipped along with a photo of the shipping receipt with visible tracking number. We realize that not everyone will meet all of these requirements, such as college students etc. Therefore in order for these participants to still take part, substitutions will be made on a case by case basis when you first request to participate. As an example a parent's address/phone number may be supplemented for employer. Cell phone bill, may be used instead of utility bill. But one of these will be required. The goal of these steps is simple we want to verify who you are, where you live, and in case of you not returning or shipping the kit to the next person, we want to track you down and either get the kit from you or get the cost of the kit from you. If we can't get the tour kit or the money from you, we want to know who to file criminal charges against... We also know that the majority of members will never be an issue because you guys are hard working and honest people. If anyone has any issues at this point with any of this, then you can PM me, I will provide my email address and we can discuss it in a group email with Barra and I. If you feel like this is too much, then feel free to notify Barra and drop from the tour. There of course will be some exceptions such as those members that have built trust with Barra. He make's that call and if that applies to you, Barra will notify you. My job is the opposite, I don't trust anyone, but I'll be verifying everyone... Hope this helps give you guys an idea of what's coming. This will take some time to get this information and verify it from everyone so be patient and we'll get the tour moving as quickly as possible. Again this is preliminary requirements, FINAL rules will be posted later. This is not the place to have an in depth discussion or to plead why these rules shouldn't apply to you. But I would love to have a little feedback and find out if you agree or disagree with terms as stringent as these.
