Hi everyone......just a reminder to all members and organizers of our group that it is common courtesy to not re-post anyone's prior event postings without first asking them about whether or not they have plans to re-post the event themselves and waiting for their response regarding the matter. It has been an unspoken common courtesy in the past for our organizers to not re-post anyone else's previous postings. We are not sure why that has changed or must be explained now.
Doing so can obviously cause friction and has in our group recently and is not acceptable behavior as a member of this group. Things have always run smoothly in the past and this has not had to be explained to anyone. Let's get that respect for each other back into play and use common sense and courtesy please when posting anything on the site.
Also please do not post comments in the comment sections of a particular posting irrelevant to that particular posting or not a communication with the host of that particular event. Nobody wants to have their in-box fill up with nonsense. Private email is preferred please.
With all of that said, let's enjoy each other, be team players and avoid stepping on each other's toes please. We'd like to continue to welcome all members, have our organizers be friends and continue to enjoy our play time together without any needless friction.
Yes, private apologies to the appropriate parties are acceptable if you've done something to contibute to the friction and you are beginning to be aware of that and plan to avoid stepping on anyone's toes in the future. I highly recommend them to remain a welcomed member of this group.
Now that all members have posting capabilities, please abide by our generally unspoken respect and common sense courtesy if you would like to post an event. I know it is not always going to be obvious if you are posting something someone has previously posted but if it is, please use common courtesy and think of a new idea. We have a vast outdoor playground. Be creative and respectful of others at the same time.
Please do not respond to this email as it is intended to bring awareness and not for open discussion.
