When growing a community, you want as broad a group of potential contributors 
as possible. If someone chooses to affiliate themselves with the Order, we want 
to accept that opt-in because it makes it easier for us to encourage them to 
contribute now or in the future. Grab the enthusiasm while it is on offer, 
provide a title of "member" (and not much else), and then nurture that person 
into a contributing and voting member.

Otherwise you will need some type of "interested non-member" status so that 
you can track those interested in the order who haven't yet contributed.

It sounds like at least part of your goal in membership is to be exclusive--to 
show that you are part of a contributing community. You can still enjoy that 
status as a voting member.

I think Jeff's proposal that anyone can advertise their membership emphasizes 
our welcoming attitude and makes it easy to participate. But only those who 
have contributed will have the ability to influence the policies and direction 
of the order.
