EVENT LISTING DESCRIPTION SOON TO NOTABLY IMPROVE ATHLETICALLY IN ~2 months, & remarkably with 0 loss in any other areas (as completeness, plus easy maintenance, and even sharing event series' history), thanks to some event listing software I'm coding.
*That Girl rightfully brought up that the present event listings have too much info in them for the first pass so are hard to read, where one just doesn't read them. Ramjet concurred.
*That Girl also suspected this was keeping people away from meetings.
*While they of course saw our listings as notably different than their other groups (they are!), they both admitted they hadn't themselves created regularly repeating event listings before so may not know all the aspects involved (such as being complete but also maintaining the repeat copies).

“Ok, poly seems cool. But how to introduce other people (as one's perspective romances) to polyamory & sell them on it?”.
*This was (quite understandably & reasonably) the big Q at the meeting of That Girl and ramjet , as detailed at (soon) at http://meetup.com/OC-Polyamory/... .

POLYAMOROUS HANDLING-OF & PARENTING KIDS
*As proposed by Jaylene&roger at our prior mtg http://meetup.com/OC-Polyamory/... and yes a quite good&important topic.
**That says "Ok,Jaylene,then pls now simply make an event cmt [here] then I'll update the event title to include that topic so we can start advertising " but that wasn't done (till now) so this didn't get advertised; nonetheless,
*We'll talk about this at this meeting if there's interest, which there seems to be.
*If continued interest show, we'll advertise this to talk about it even more at our next mtg.
