Do you know if you are a geek, nerd or a dork? Each one of these terms has its own definition, although some people might define them differently or feel they represent more than one.
If you're not sure which one you are, go here for the test: http://helloquizzy.okcupid.com/tests/the-nerd-geek-or-dork-test.
Members should be 18+, respectful, active, enthusiastic, non-flaky, and most of all, willing to have a lot of fun and meet new people!
Members are welcome to co-host and suggest a new meetups for the group if there are ideas for events. Think of creative, unique, and super gladdening things to do with a twist of geekiness, nerdiness, and dorkiness.
Please take note of the new 3-strike No Flake policy for this group (freshly implemented on Dec. 22nd 2012 and strictly enforced):
Under each member’s name is a title section. By default, it is usually left blank by organizers.
The system below is used to keep track of flaking:
This is fair and reasonable, certainly not draconian, because you get a couple of chances to flake. Who can ever sensibly argue that constant flaking should be OK or tolerable??
And before you become a flake, you can always cancel an RSVP in a timely manner to avoid any of this and to further preserve your two "get out of jail free cards" for real emergencies.
If you voluntarily sign up to the group, thus becoming a member, which means you WANT to participate in upcoming events, then I figure you can certainly find ways to communicate with the group and its organizer(s) about the status of your RSVPs.
Consider the policy the group’s Selsun Blue.
