Go Gail,
                Just remove any members that do not have a clear picture.  Then set up a "Bag Meetup"  Everyone shows up with a bag on their head and then you have to figure out who showed up!

Good morning Alice. That is exactly what Gail done in the past with my profile ,asked me and offered to assistant me privately. But you do have an excellent idea of force it as a rule.

Dear Gail,

May I make a suggestion?

Make a rule. Enforce it politely and privately.

Ex. John doesn't post a pic and signs up for an event. Send him a private note reminding him that although you look forward to having him join the meetup, he will need to post a head shot in order to attend. People that don't (within 1 day or your time frame)are automatically removed from that event (not the group). If this becomes burdensome just say they will be removed if it occurs more than 2 times.

When people start hitting reply all it would be nice to send one email reminding them (I think you did this) how to post comments ... I would ADD that members can change their account settings to a daily digest or no emails. When group leaders allow these emails to go on and on, members end up leaving or not wanting any emails, because the original purpose of just getting event details is abused.

Perhaps if someone has an issue about posting a photo, they could contact you privately and you'll be happy to discuss on a individual basis. Maybe they have a good reason and they can send a photo to you privately.

I get the impression that you are burned out and administering the group is a frustration. That's too bad-it washes over the whole meetup group. I hope these suggestions offer some value.

Helen, you may remove yourself from the group at any time.  If you want to tell me which Helen you are, I can take you off.  Gail  ************************************************** Life is too short to wake up with regrets. So love the people who treat you

be worth it.
