"Profile Photo & Photos Taken At Meet-ups"
It is strongly encouraged that you put a photo of yourself (head shot is best) on your profile so that the event host and other members know who to expect at meet-ups.
When you attend a meet-up, your photo may be taken and then uploaded to this site. Be aware that meet-up is a public forum and by becoming a member you accept that your image and name may appear here and possibly in another public medium such as Facebook.

"No Shows and Late Cancellations"
If you RSVP to come to an event the assumption by the host is that you will actually turn up. If your plans change, change your RSVP as soon as possible so that anyone on the Waiting list can take advantage of your spot.
For those members who "no show" or change RSVP within 24 hours of the meetup without a valid reason, the organizers have the option of removing someone from the group.
If you need to cancel within 24 hours of the meetup itself please also update your RSVP and post a comment or phone/sms the event host preferably or other attending organizers so they know not to expect you. If you sms remember to include your name. Please also provide a reason on why you cannot attend.
Also if you RSVPed to bring a guest, but find out your guest cannot come on the day of the event, please kindly change the RSVP immediately to allow another member to attend.
Also please be aware that if you arrive 30 minutes or later than the meetup time without an appropriate reason you may be removed from the group. Please advise the organizer if you will be late.
The organizers/hosts always list their mobile number, so please enter them into your phone so you have them on hand to do the aforementioned or in case you cannot locate the group on the day.
This group has been going strong since May 2010 and many lovely friendships have been made. The organizers simply ask everyone to be courteous towards us and each other and we will continue to have many enjoyable events together.

As of the start of October 2013 organizers can now choose to use Waitlist (formerly Automatic Waitlist) or let interested members sign up for notifications on open slots with Notify Me. (If an organizer chooses this second option they will choose No waitlist when setting up the event.)
If 'Waitlist' is used the first person on the waiting list gets to go automatically if a spot becomes available. If an organizer selects 'No waitlist' members have the option to be notified when spots open up if the meetup is full by using the 'Notify Me' button. The 'Notify Me' button lets interested members receive alerts when slots open up. Whoever responds first gets the open spot.
Please be aware putting your name on the waiting list, means you have a commitment to attend the event, and subsequently, you may get a space on the morning of the event and are therefore expected at the meetup. It is not acceptable to say you thought you were still on the waiting list. Failure to attend may lead to permanent removal from the group. If you cannot attend please remove your name from the waiting list as soon as possible.
Please refrain from attending an event when you are on the waiting list. If you find a spot available, please change your RSVP to yes, then come. Unannounced attendance is unfair and rude to other people on the waiting list who equally want to attend the event. It may also cause a shortage of space, particularly at a small venue, which may be burden to the organisers. If you do this it may result in the removal from the group.
Please trust your organizers and rest assured we are doing our best to ensure the maximum number of people can attend each event.

"RSVPing and Adding Yourself to the Waiting List for More than One Event on at the Same Time"
The host of the event has the discretion (without contacting you) to remove you from the event if you have RSVP'ed to 2 or more events on at the same time.
If you have RSVP'ed to 1 event and added yourself to the waiting list for another event on at the same time the event host has the discretion to remove you from the Going list at any time 48 hours before the event.
If you are on the waiting list for 2 or more events on at the same time be sure to remove yourself as soon as possible from the waiting list for all other events if you are get on the Going list for 1 of the events.

If you post a COMMENT relating to a particular meet-up event it will be emailed to all members already on the YES list and the waitlist.
When you RSVP to an event the host will be sent a notification email (unless they have turned off this setting). You can write a small note when you RSVP if you wish to advise the host of something.
If you send a GREETING to a member via their profile, they will receive it via email but it will also be posted on their profile for all members to see.
Sending an EMAIL to a member via their profile is the most private way to communicate as only they receive it. You can keep your email address private but the recipient will be told your name and referred to your profile. They in turn can send you an email this way, also keeping their address private. Note that anyone harassing another member will be immediately banned from this group.
Starting a discussion on the MESSAGE BOARD results in all members receiving an advisory email. They can then choose to visit the MESSAGE BOARD for a look. Any replies posted will be emailed to the person starting the discussion. The Organizer regularly "cleans up" the MESSAGE BOARD.
To contact the Organizer, either send an email via their profile (option to hide your email address if you wish) or if you click on "Contact Us" you have the option of asking for a reply but your email address will then be listed. Only the Organizer receives these emails, not the Assistant Organizers.

"Become The Host Of An Event"
The organizers love hearing your ideas about possible venues to visit and we try our hardest to accommodate. If you list an idea you may be asked whether you wish to host the event yourself. The reason for this is that the organizers may not be available in the immediate future so if someone can host the event now, why not. Hosting is not difficult. All you do is:
Decide on the date and time you wish to hold the event.
Decide on the number of invitees you would like.
Contact the venue to make a booking under "Brisbane Coffee Lovers", also provide your name and mobile.
Ask the venue if they have a "one bill per table" policy (let the group know if so).
Contact the Organizer to list the event for you (providing all relevant information about the venue including website if available and your mobile number which will be listed).
On the day of the event turn up at least 10 minutes early to greet your guests (even earlier if the venue does not take bookings).
Rate, upload any photos and provide feedback once the event is over.
