Membership Guidelines

GROUP RULES: Please understand that all of the below information is to help ensure all of our members have a safe and fun experience !!

*Each event will list a start time. Please be courteous and arrive on time.

Profile Picture Policy: We do require all members to post an actual, recognizable current picture of themselves in their profiles which shows their face. Please DO NOT have anyone else in your photo. Since many events are hosted in restaurants and private homes, this makes it significantly easier for Organizers to locate people in these venues and learn names more quickly.

Our Attendance Policy: Since many of our events fill up and have waiting lists, we have a “Three Strike” attendance policy. If you are a “No Show” or a “Late Drop” (dropping less than 4 hours before a full event), it will count as a strike. After three strikes, you are subject to removal. So, please only sign up for events that you know you can attend...and update your RSVPs in a timely fashion. {A "Yes" RSVP to attend any event means that you are DEFINITELY joining us. If you sign up for an event, then please consider it a COMMITMENT to attend.}

The Raleigh Durham Doctor Who Meetup Group cancellation policy requires that you change your "Yes" RSVP to a "No" for you and/or your guest(s) at least 24 hours prior to the start of a full event to allow other members time to sign up. If you RSVP "Yes" to an event, but fail to show up for at least 3 Events, then you will be automatically removed from our Group. It will be up to the discretion of the Organizers whether to reinstate you as a Member in the future.

Solicitation: There is no solicitation or promotion of events, products, or services of any kind permitted at The Raleigh Durham Doctor Who Meetup Group gatherings or on our website without prior approval from the Organizer. Members and guests are not permitted to pass out flyers, promotional products, or pamphlets of any kind at events without prior approval from the Organizer. Members may not gather people's email addresses for the purpose of sales, promotion, or marketing. When a member gives another member their email address, they do so in good faith that it will not be misused for business purposes.

Code of Conduct:

1) In an effort to prevent unwarranted and unsolicited behavior when using the Meetup messaging system, no member may have unsolicited contact with another member to ask for a date if the members have not previously met in person through a group event. There can be no unsolicited emails that have been directed towards new members who have not had the chance to attend a single event. This group will not be used as an online dating platform. If we as organizers receive complaints, you will be removed from the group. No pleading your case, no asking for a second chance. You will be MOVED TO THE BANNED list and will be unable to rejoin this group.

2) When attending group events, please conduct yourself in an appropriate and responsible manner. We will not put up with behavior that is anything less than stellar. This means you will drink responsibly, keep inappropriate comments to yourself, and will act in a respectful manner to ALL members attending the event. If we learn of questionable or inappropriate behavior, you WILL BE BANNED from the group.

3) This old adage is true: "If you don't have anything nice to say, then don't say anything at all". If you only have negative comments about an event, organizer, or member, then keep them to yourself. We will not tolerate public negative postings on our website, and they will be removed. If you continue these types of postings, then you will be removed and banned from the group. If you have a particular problem with a group member, then you can contact an Organizer about it to get assistance.

4) If you attend an event at a restaurant, bar, pub, or any other establishment that serves food and drink, then you MUST pay your own bill...and that includes tips/gratuities as well. No other group member should have to bear this financial burden because you choose to leave early. If you leave without paying your bill, then you will be removed from the group.
