    *I replied:

    **how u like us to do this at our next mtg(#13: 2013.05.07~, http://meetu.ps/Bxp3d­ ).She said great!
    *Ok,Jaylene,then pls now simply make an event cmt on that mtg listing telling what u want covered(wording need not be perfect,but try to make the 1st line/paragraph be the title),
    *then I'll update the event title to include that topic so we can start advertising to our 151 members asking who's in or curious about the situation and/or wants to talk about it!

      steve, u(& ur 1 guest) were our only no-show.
      *So kindly what happened? -we were looking forward to your join us. -Click Reply here else email me.
      *Also as u missed this 1, kindly RSVP for our next ones as 2013.05.07~ http://meetu.ps/Bxp3d­ .
      *And definitely bring your wife, especially as you make such big point in ur profile that she "understand[s] and is behind .. Poly. My wife allows .. Poly .." -sounds great, definitely bring her. Indeed, per u're writing that&saying other stuff prior (at the previous meeting where we asked me how you could introduce poly to her & we talked at length about it), we'd sincerely want to meet her regardless of how she stands on ur hving additional romances.

      Instead of this thread, see http://meetup.com/OC-...­ --an existing thread he had just prior created for himself which Jaylene probably didn't see as his post hadn't yet appeared for other users or maybe she hadn't refreshed.

    roger http://meetup.com/OC-Polyamory/...­ formally joins the group, instead of just being his wife Jaylene http://meetup.com/OC-Polyamory/...­ guest
    *happened during this meeting
    *as a result, I am updating all Jaylene's RSVPs of YES+1 guest to be YES+0 guests plus adding roger.
    *the two had talked about making a couple profile but I recommend against this (as well as on our group's "About us" point MJD9BA , which then details how you still can & should use our profile Qs (especially MGCRel) to even better link to each other & show your relationship & agreements), plus this shows more pics RSVPing YES and makes the attendance count more believable, and other benefits.
    *thanks for doing this, roger, including the time to get all your profile Qs answered fully :-)

    Manually RSVPing for future events
    *discussed per our agenda
    *delightfully everyone attending decided to RSVP YES for our next 2 in this series ( #13: 2013.05.07~, http://meetu.ps/Bxp3d­ and #14: 2013.06.04~, http://meetu.ps/BN2Ds­ ) , so I made it so.
    *I also mentioned some of our upcoming events as:
    **Tantra 2013.04.20~ http://meetup.com/OC-Polyamory/...­ ***Jaylene & roger said had tickets to something then so couldn't make it, so I RSVPed them NO.
    **Brentwood Poly Family's Huge Poly Pool Party #10+ http://meetup.com/OC-Polyamory/...­
    **Jaylene & roger said they really wanted to go, especially having just missed the last one as this would be their first one.
    **I said great & said the date there is approximate but with their RSVP YES now they would then get informed of not only the new date but also attract more YESes and get informed of planning & carpools & more.
