A shul paid a couple of men to stand outside on Yom Kippur with a list of names of paid memberships. Anyone not on the list wishing to enter had the option of “committing” by giving their name & number to be written down & to be called by the shul for payment.
Is this muttar ?
Can we get the name of this Shul?

Regarding Israelis in America making their own minyan on shmini atzeres for simchas torah leining, I heard that R’ Elyashiv & R’ Shlomo Zalman forbid it (I’m not sure of the reasoning). Is there anyone who permits it ?

Check the sefer - Yom Tov Sheni K'Hilchaso.

Can I give Maaser ahead of time?

E. G. I know I'll be getting paid $1000 next week Iyh. Can I give $100 to tzedekah today and count it as Maaser from that expected paycheck?

Yes.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Does Paradise Island in the Bahamas require an eruv, or not due to the size of the island.

For reference:

A beach does not remove the requirement for an eruv.

I don't know the halacha l'ma'aseh on this topic, but the gemara definitely discusses certain natural boundaries which constitute an eruv (see Eruvin 8(a) and 22(a)-(b)).

In order for an area to be a Resus Hayachid (RY) it need to be compleatly suronded by mechitzos (halachic walls). the chances of this island having naturally occuring continuos natural boundries are so small that unless you go map them out, there's no reason to discuss it. but even if there were mechitzos, you'd still need to deal with sechiras reshus...

Basically, unless a mumcha in practical eruvin approves it, don't make assumtions that theres anything there....

No, it is Tashmishei Mitzvah, which can be discarded Derech Kavod, and you can not do a tashmish bazui with it.
