Testing 4-5-6

  • Oct 24, 2012 · 1:45 AM

This is just a test page. Not a real event. I would delete it if I could.

Am just testing the new "Good to see you" feature (akin to the "poke" in FaceBook) which us organisers don't like but Meetup HQ are ignoring us their paying customers because they do not even allow us to disable it for the group. Instead each individual has to disable it (in each group they belong to).

So if someone (eg Bill) disables/blocks it in this group and someone else (eg "Ben") subsequently sends Bill a "poke", Ben will be personally offended to not get a poke back from Bill even though pokes are silently blocked by Bill from everyone (not from Bill in particular). It may turn out that Ben cannot poke Bill in the first place - this is what I am testing.

Most organisers dislike this feature for various other reasons too - read about it in the forums.

    The results are in: (using the above example) When rating the meeting, meetup.com *does* offer Ben the option to poke Bill with a "Good to see you" yet the web site does not warn Ben that Bill won't be seeing any such pokes from anyone.

    Even if Ben didn't show up and the organiser marks him (8 minutes after the meetup end-time) "not attended", Meetup sends him an email (15 minutes after the meetup end-time) asking him how the meetup was and he is given the opportunity to rate that meeting he did not go to and even to poke the attendees.

    The other attendees are not given the option initiate a poke to the absent Bill (merely to respond to a poke).
