N3D0Z9=This content I will move-so-redirect to and merge into http://1.JotHere.com...­ as it applies much more than to this group.
EVERYONE, WHENEVER POSSIBLE, KINDLY
AVOID PRIVATE MESSAGING&TALK (as calls,emails,&even SMS) other than to just direct-to-post
AND INSTEAD POST OFTEN & PROPERLY
, detailed more at http://1.JotHere.com/...­ & http://1.JotHere.com/...­ , with the most urgent stuff covered in this thread =MXNL2E}
{MXNL75=

  • N3D0UL=As I do continually, before sending any message or making a call, stop & think "How can I instead do this via post?"
  • {MXO29E=If you've got something to related to our group, it generally belongs in a post and not a message (other than to (alert/remind) to look at & Reply to the post). Below tells for common types; and if still unsure, ask "Where do I post this?" -we aim to have a place for posting everything.=MXO29E}
  • {MXO29Q=For most anything, you can and should post in order to propose it, just post it to the standards of this thread; that's how you propose it.
    {MXO4DQ=One almost never needs-to nor should private message something as, including since for most posts including most posts on Meetup, the is NOT widely announced as emailed out unless a group leader does so, say after approving it or wanting to advertise it more; indeed..}
    {MXO4OM=Unless an event comment post (which gets quickly emailed to all responding on the page), it's a good idea after your post to (Greet: see MXO4JY in post­ below) else SMS email the person(s) needing to see it the URL else they may not see it in time or ever.}}
  • {MXNN55=This is all very much per the grass-roots collaborative-spirit and founding-cleverness of Meetup.com}
  • {MXNN58=Note it's easier & better-quality to 1st draft each post in a text editor that that can count characters (as max 500 per Meetup event listing cmt), ideally count any text selection: currently I use:
    {MXO29I=for small, an event listing's main comment box (but typically avoid posting there as that's top-level)}
    {MXO29J=for bigger, I use FOSS­ & cross-platform­ LibreOffice Writer}}
  • {MXO29F=For every keyword you use, include besides it a URL for it, ideally a the Wikipedia URL else the maker's URL, unless it is the group's main topic or would be found in the dictionary and even then if there might be someone who wouldn't know it; do not assume everyone knows what you're referring to AND where to find it.}
  • {MXNN5A=I highly recommend using outline format, with 1 "*" bullet for each nesting level (as "***" before a level-3 point) and TOPIC IN ALL CAPS.}
  • {MXNN5C=Use a private messaging& talk primarily just to direct & remind to post, pointing to where (the URL) as, SMS

{MXNLDV=ONE THREAD PER TOPIC and ONE TOPIC PER THREAD

  • {MXNNE9=so then, for example, for any event,

    • {MXNTUM=ONE THREAD PER PRESENTATION GIVEN
      {MXNTUP=and including a link to the thread/page of every time it was given, if that exists}}
    • {MXO1PT=ONE THREAD PER A PERSON'S ATTENDANCE & REVIEW,
      {MXO1PW=so if you want to update with why you're coming or time you're arriving/leaving or why or your overall review of the event, use exactly 1 separate thread for that}}

  • {MXNNEH=Important keep that&every topic together, including
    *insuring our many readers here aren't overwhelmed, incl so 1 can Mute any topic w/o muting all}
  • {MXNNEJ=Especially key to get this right(post in right location)the 1st time

    • {MXNO2R=as Meetup very mistakenly does not allow anyone,even admin,to move a post even if it's in the wrong location, including can't compose a new post for anyone under his/her name but oneself;}
    • {MXNO8D=Rule of thumb: before posting,search for the best&good matching existing post to click “Reply” on,&ONLY IF none found, THEN use the top-level post, as cmt box that Meetup unfortunately lists&features at the top.}
    • {MXNO8J=For good example,see Jim's reply post: http://meetup.com/Nod...­ }
    • {MXNO8R=For mistaken example, see Ben's 1st 2 posts on that event listing (both at top level when a thread already exists),what led me to make this cmt as Ben's a sharp guy so others might hv trouble,too.}
    • {MY5AHS=text copied (and, for future there, moved) from http://www.meetup.com...­ to here:
      MKA77Q: ideally each topic in exactly 1 thread (a top-level event comment)
