Upgrade to virtual fireplace pro next time!
In all seriousness, the event went exceedingly well. I met some tremendous people from all over the world, met both entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs, and learned a ton from Eric and Hiten.
Thanks again for organizing Tristan and thanks to Votizen for hosting at their very cool office.

Thanks everyone for attending and putting up with all the technical issues.
The stream will be available at http://www.justin.tv/leanstartu... and we'll try and edit down the space at the beginning.
We need to try for continuous improvement, so any suggestions are appreciated. What can we do 5% better?
(We already figured out to use Eventbrite for ticketing next time.)

Duncan Ariey from meetup.com support who is asking anyone who is encountering RSVP issues to contact them. I have also forwarded a list of people reporting issues directly to meetup.com.
I realize this is very frustrating (for me as well) and now reports of people paying and then being summarily moved to the "not going" rsvp list which has started happening today.
I would advise not changing your waitlist position as perhaps this is part of the new issue.
Waiting for meetup to respond.

I keep getting meetup emails that there are new spots available, but when clicking on the link I am still on the waiting list.. can you help?

I mean to say that the venue should seat everyone comfortably but that in the event anyone is happy for any reason I will refund the money. The paypal charge is about 60 cents, but I will happily refund that as well if anyone has a serous issue with that, the seating, the heating, or whatever.
Even if someone wants a refund for whatever reason, they can still stay as there should be plenty of standing room and beer.
This is complete satisfaction or your money back.

OK just checking what this update means. It sounds like those of us who signed up right away could show up and find people who were on the waiting list arrived early that night so we don't get a decent seat, and if we're not happy we get told to go away and you keep part of our money? If that's not the case you may want to clarify. If that is the case, you may want to rethink how you are managing the event.

I'm assured that we can fit 100 + standing room within earshot (though probably not LoS) so I'm going to increase the ticket count to 95 for the moment. (Saving 5 for camera guys, etc)
In the event that anyone is unsatisfied with their seat (read: behind a pole) I will refund their ticket minus paypal fees.
For those who still find themselves on the wait list, please note that thanks to the generous folks at Justin.tv we will be streaming the event at http://justin.tv/leanstartupcir...

Refunds offered if:
Payments you make go to the organizer, not to Meetup. You must make refund requests to the organizer.
