MGCO9P: Our current profile questions. I have no idea where they came from other than were of course from prior leaders. They are:

  • MGCOCD: "1. Introduction"

    • MGCOEJ: Yes, this a complete repeat of the prior built-in Meetup "Introduction" Q, with the only difference is that this custom Q allows several times more text space (but IMHO that's at all a good reason to repeat it)

  • MGCOCN: "2. Are you seriously interested in polyamory, open relationships or other forms of consensual non-monogamy?"

    • MGCOJO: This question is topical but what's the point of asking since that is the point of the group.

  • MGCOCZ: "3. What kind of events would you like to see happen in the area? What kind would you be interested in attending? Describe in detail.

    • MGCOL6: Seems a useful Q but could be asked better.

  • MGCODE: "4. How do you define polyamory?"

    • MGCOM8: An interesting Q but annoying because hopefully we have a solid definition as http://1.jothere.com/...­ and people's answer's can change and the info is only maybe ~20% useful

MGCOSZ:

  • MGCOT8: Replace "MGCOCD: "1. Introduction"" with same used on for example (my profile here) http://meetup.com/Asi...­ "MFTRef: HOW EXACTLY DID U HEAR OF US? -as URL of the web page we're listed on,as search URL&query-string, or referrer's profile URL&online name. AND WHAT EXACTLY CAUSED U TO WANT TO JOIN US? Please be exact-as-possible so we know what&whom to credit."
  • MGCP3D: composed new Q: "MGCRel: To prevent cheating&celebrate, LIST here EVERYONE U R CURRENTLY SEXUAL-OR-ROMANTIC WITH. For ea,give (1)his/her Online-name,(2)Profile URL(s) on Meetup&elsewhere,&(3)What other romances s/he allows u2have. &If changes,update this immediately."
    MHRTFT: *For any romance group, but especially for polyamory which makes a point of no secrets, this question will prevent members in an exclusive relationship from coming to the group & cheating
    MHRTJA: **See item MDMSDN on "About us"
    MHRTJJ: **All this was brought up when Kundan told me member Mani B was using this & other groups in order to cheat on his wife.
    MHRTNJ: *Hopelfully members won't mind this Q as they answer a similar Q on Facebook Relationship status (~"Who are you in a romantic relationship with?") except this has been generalized for multiple simultaneous relationships & the exclusivity criteria of each.
  • MGCQAW: added as Q5 new Q I just composed: "MGCPic: DOES YOUR MAIN/FEATURED PICTURE(on this ur group-profile) MEET STANDARD http://1.JotHere.com/...­ IF NOT,WHY DO U DESERVE A WAIVER? Note that URL tells u other ways 2protect ur privacy; still,if u've solid&legit reason here,we grant u waiver."
    *MGCQIA: -modeled after "MFWPic: DOES YOUR MAIN/FEATURED PICTURE(on this ur group-profile) MEET STANDARD http://1.JotHere.com/...­ --REQUIRED at all times so required be a member & attend. OR IF u've good reason for a waiver(possible but granted rarely), please tell it here." used on my profile http://meetup.com/OCA...­ and other members there

MHRLQO:

  • MHRLR1: Give IDs to all Qs w/o them, new values:

    • "MHRSer MHRLRV: Are you seriously interested in polyamory, open relationships or other forms of consensual non-monogamy?"
    • "MHREvt MHRLU1: What kind of events would you like to see happen in the area? What kind would you be interested in attending? Describe in detail."
    • "MHRDef MHRLVO: How do you define polyamory?"

  • MHRN7O: RE MFTRef: update to match latest version (at OCAndroid): "MFTRef MHRMVN: (1)HOW EXACTLY DID U HEAR OF US? -as web page URL u found us on(as search URL+query-string), or referrer's profile-URL+online-name; (2)WHAT ABOUT U&US CAUSED U TO APPLY TO JOIN US? Pls be exact as possible so we know what&whom 2credit."
  • MHRNHS: find which Q to replace to with MGCRel;
    MHRP0D: *MHRSer seems best choice.
    MHRP0T: **least useful seems MHRSer, including since it's a Yes/No Q, plus a Q that one may change over time and one can't know well until getting involved. I see no good point in it, only time will tell. Surveyed 4 recent members
    http://meetup.com/OC-...­
    http://meetup.com/OC-...­
    http://meetup.com/OC-...­
    http://meetup.com/OC-...­
    and it seems to confirm this.
    MHRP1A: **Moreover replacing MHRSer with MGCRel makes sense because MGCRel really shows one is serious about not cheating.
    MHRQHV: This Q has also has a problem mentioned in my response to it "I avoid the term "open relationship" due to it including casual & irresponsible sex, especially given this is what it brings to mind for many/most people http://1.JotHere.com/...­
  • MHRNW8: Replace MHRSer with MGCRel, specifically a new version with version ID plus improvements: "MGCRel MHRNW: To celebrate romances+prevent cheating, LIST ALL U R CURRENTLY SEXUAL-OR-ROMANTIC WITH,&for ea,give(1)his/her Online-name,(2)Profile URL(s) on Meetup&elsewhere,&(3)What other romances s/he allows u2have. When changes,UPDATE IMMEDIATELY."

MHZNJW: Responses so far to Q MGCRel MHRNW, in order, mostly from searching thru new member list:

  • MHZNKQ: I completed it no problem, see my profile, also including the type of relationship I seek .
  • MHZNQO: "Joined February 5, 2013" Armando: just answered with "None"; acceptable if true.
  • MHZNRX: "Joined February 6, 2013" Lisa answered "I have a husband and I am looking for a lover to be a part of our family"; didn't really answer 1,2,3, just told there was "a husband" and she's seeking.
  • TO BE CONTINUED
