Re: [blues-106] Important Update to Group Profile Requirements

From: Larry H.
Sent on: Monday, August 29, 2011 2:55 PM
I choose not to make all the personal information and photos about myself available and you may remove me from the list immediately. I joined the group to find out when and where jams, performances, etc take place, and to decide if I might like to attend. I did not necessarily join  to socialize. You might consider as to whether the abundance of personal info led to the stalking. Not sure providing even more and better photo's is wise in that regard.
 
Thanks you,
Larry Hall

Hi Blues Fans!

We are writing to share an important change for all members. Please read this message thoroughly.

If you have already done so, we want to thank you for sharing information with the all of our members.  If you have not updated your information recently, please take a moment and review your profile.   In doing so, you might notice new questions from those that were presented at the time you joined us.

These questions help us to get to know you. (That's why we're here, right?)  Yes, we do need an actual answer and no, "?" or "..." or “ummm” are not acceptable answers.  On the other hand, if you are new to Blues, the area or have no experience, it is acceptable to say that too as long as it is a complete response.  Then you can come back later to update your profile.  Please take the opportunity now, to answer.  This helps us to provide the best group experience for you and your Blues friend community.

Again, we want to recognize and get to you at events.  If you have already posted a current profile photo, we thank you.  If not, you will need to post a picture of yourself.  It needs to clearly show your face- not your Blues loving dog, not your vacation destination, not favorite Blues artists. [Photos of couples are permitted as long as one of the individuals shown is clearly distinguishable as you.]

We regret this action toward requirements and believe this will not cause a hardship for our members since most already have opted to share your smiles and answers. However, effective immediately and due to recent incidents- including one of a member needing to leave our group due to being stalked, a current and clearly distinguishable photo of every member is required for Valley of Sun Blues group membership.

We trust most of you will understand, yet realize this may not be something all can tend to in short notice.  Accordingly members have until September 30, 2011 to update their current profiles.  After that time, members not meeting these basic guidelines will be removed in order to maintain a quality and safe experience for the rest of our group.

Thank you,
Your Leadership Team
