you might have noticed that the "I have an idea for a meetup" feature is no longer accessible. Recently, this feature was misused twice in one of my groups to send out spam in a "drive-by posting" manner (a user joins the group, posts the spam message as 'idea' and immediately afterwards deletes their account).
I have reported the incidents to meetup.com and also asked for an optional requirement for authorization of idea posts by an organizer. I have yet to hear back from them.
Consequently I have disable the 'idea' feature for my groups. In the meantime, if you have an idea for a meetup, please either contact one of the organizers or post it in the forums.
Meet nearby Boardgame players! Most of our meetups are centered in the Peninsula and South Bay, but we have events in other locations, too, so check out the list. We tend to play games like Settlers of Catan, Carcassone, Puerto Rico, and others of that style. All ages and skills are welcome - the goal is to have fun. Have a game you want try, bring it along... Have an old favorite, but don't know anyone to play, bring it too...
