Hey Crista...
 
I hope the new policy helps you and the group... 
 
I trust in full disclosure you will admit to the group we spoke over the phone from the start.  I called you and then you called me back.  Remember?  We discussed your fee for telling me how to post to your group...  The thing is, you have had my personal phone number this entire time...  Otherwise it seems a little, well, dishonest- and I know you to be a stickler for honesty...  :)
 
Cheers,
Misty

Crista, the Organizer of 'Arts New Mexico' Meetup Group has changed the settings for the group. Now Members can add Meetups, but they can only be announced by an Organizer.
Due to confusion over the Glass Blowing event this weekend, and some other events in the past that were not descriptive to refelect accurately what the event was, if there was a charge, or how to find the place... I have changed the posting protocol so that events are not announced untill an organizer announces them - or, more appropriately, until I add you as an organizer so you can post the event, email members, edit the event once posted, etc.
PLEASE REVIEW THE RULES & SUGGESTIONS FOR POSTING AN EVENT and add your comments regarding how we might change or improve this policy to encourage both wide participation AND accountability. (a daunting goal, dare I say)... See the top discussion " Open Participation & How To Post an Event " on the Discussions tab at: http://www.meetup.com/Arts-New-Mexico/messages/boards/ and add your voice if you care to.
Above all, please be aware that you are required to send me your direct cell or best PHONE NUMBER if you wish to host or share an event. You do not need to post your private cell # to the event page if you don't want to... You just need to Email send a text message to my cell phone, (505)[masked]. Include your member name and cell # or best contact. Other than that, just read the PAGE that gives instructions on how-to post events.
[NOTE: I am NOT a tech wiz but I am availabe for general technical assistance on how to post and manage stuff on Meetup (or general web adaptivity, how to download free programs on file hippo, how to print-to-PDF, how to save a photo and upload it later, etc.) for a cost of $10 per-half-hour. This can be done in person or over the phone. There is no charge for an initial 2-3 minute phone call - but if you are new to Meetup, or new to internet technology in general, you will find this extremely low fee more than worth it's wieght in results. This is not what I "do" and I don't offer this to make money, I offer this as a community service to members...]
Thanks All!
