The horrible new Meetup look

This new Meetup format sucks as far as I'm concerned! If you want to post something about it or send an email to Meetup HQ here are a couple of links to use. While the entire upgrade may not change, hopefully we can get some portions of it changed.­

To report issues with the Meetup site, go to the main Discuss Meetup forums:­ or contact Meetup's Community Team directly:­

Yes, this is a different look isn't it?
I need to step back a little and look at it for a while, before I come up with my evaluation.
One thing I do like is the Instant location ID for the meet Up.
That is if Google Maps has it! lol

I think it was an absolutely horrible idea. There are a lot of little features that are either changed or now gone, in addition to appearance changes. There is a LOT of negative noise on their message boards . I really hope they learn something.

Some of you may have seen this from another organizer, Monica. I'm going to send this to my members also.

Two seconds of your time - if you are as frustrated and disappointed with the new Meetup format as most of us (although if you like it, good for you, no worries) - PLEASE go to this link http://meetup.uservoi...­

and place your vote imploring Meetup to revert to the previous format.

Thanks so much!

For OSL members who dislike the new Meetup format, I urge you to contact Meetup HQ at the links that Sue posted. I'ts important that Meetup HQ hears your opinion.

The new formatting /layout is confusing and the pages difficult to navigate. This makes it more difficult for members to find the information that they need, and for organizers to communicate with members. Plus it's downright ugly!

Please let Meetup HQ know what you think!

It's not even a question of pretty vs. ugly.... quite a bit of functionality is gone, too.
And yes, the layout sucks... now everything seems to take more clicks and way more scrolling to do what you want to do, because the pages are sparsely populated. I'd rather have dense and ugly. (You won't hear me say *that* very often... ) BTW, Meetup is proudly referring to this as the "New Meetup". Very much like New Coke. Now just wait for the New Meetup Prices...

I will use the links to let Meetup know my opinions...
