RSVP Guidelines

As a member of NHP2, you commit to uphold good RSVP ethics and practices. At NHP2, we value how you RSVP and project yourself in our outings.

Here are a few guidelines that we expect members will follow:

1. RSVP only when you are sure or serious about participating an outing. And when you RSVP YES or MAYBE, we expect you to prepare and work your personal schedules. Most hikes are planned and posted weeks or months ahead. So, when you cancel a hike a day or two before, it reflects that you didn't do your due diligence to prepare. Be responsible; make up your mind and act on your RSVP.

If you RSVPed YES or MAYBE weeks earlier but never really put any serious effort to make it happen and instead waited until the last day or hour to decide and prepare, there is a big chance that you will not be able to do it. And by the time you changed your RSVP that late, people in the waiting list earlier may have already found another outing to do.

2. Other meetups are used to last minute excuses such as 'something came up' or 'change of plans' without even explaining to the hike organizer the reason. It's not ok and we do not condone it. Show some care; explain.

3. If you are a Maybe, please make up your mind 3 days (at the latest) before the hike. So for a weekend hike, our cut-off time is Wednesday night. The organizer has the option to remove the Maybes to give way to the waiting list by Wednesday night.

If Maybe is not an option in a hike, that means the organizer intended to only receive FIRM YESes. There is a reason for that. Do not RSVP a YES with a comment of 'Maybe'.

4. If you are a YES but could not make it to the event, please change your RSVP as soon as you can. It is the only responsible thing to do. By doing this, you are also doing a favor to others who are interested to join or are in the waiting list to take your spot with enough time to prepare.

5. Even after notifying the event organizer an hour or day before the event due to personal circumstances, you still need to change your RSVP in the event page from YES/MAYBE to NO. It's your RSVP; manage it and don't pass the work to the organizer.

If you were a YES and did not attend, then your attendance will be set as No-Show. A No-Show becomes a permanent record on your meetup history. Organizers can see that.

6. Be aware that we too are members of many meetup groups. If you grab spots on several concurrent outings including those outside NHP2, we will see that. When you signed up with NHP2, you committed to be responsible with your RSVP.

7. If any of the organizer sees any reason for concern, we will email you a reminder and may raise the issue to the core group.
