If this is indeed the case, then once we have a "friend" level of
membership (hopefully after the AGM, subject to it being approved),
most people will sign up for that, which sorts out your problem.
I disagree fundamentally with limiting the number of (guarantor)
members to 100, or indeed having any maximum number, simply because I
believe that the charity should be as open to all as possible. What
would people say if en.wp were restricted to 100 admins, and everyone
else had to be editors?
