Hey Sports Fans,
I wanted to take this opportunity to clarify questions about emails - I have received numerous emails on this subject. There are two different ways to send and receive emails:
- Group email: top right on my site, under group tools. This email goes to EVERYONE; however, it comes to me to approve/disapprove for release. For this group...and every MU group's guidance is different, the Group Email is better suited for Organizers to put general admin stuff out to the group. NOT a good site to use if you are sending a personal email to an individual - first it has to go through my review and then it gets sent to everyone.
- Personal email via Meetup: to the left on the site. This goes directly to the member, more appropriate if you want to send a member a message, and ONLY to that member.
- Additional note: posting comments on a Meetup Event: You will receive posts that are put on the comment section of an event, if you:
- RSVP yes to an event.
- RSVP no to an event. If you either RSVP no or RSVP yes then change your RSVP you will still receive comments. If you don't want to receive comments once you have RSVP'd no, then the site allows you to stop further comments regarding that specific event.
- Don't RSVP but leave a comment.
- Next to last item: My recommendation is not to RSVP no for an event, if you decide you will not be attending an event. If you first RSVP'd yes, and your plans change, then by all means please change your RSVP to no. This assists Organizers with providing accurate information to the venue prior to the event. I have asked Meetup Corporate to remove the NO feature on a MU site, and only have it available once someone RSVP's Yes, and then changes their mind; I don't know if MU will incorporate.
- Item last: this is more for those who rarely visit TWDHH's site. Meetup Corporate will remove individuals who rarely visit the site - their thinking is that if you do not visit the site once or twice a month, then you are most likely not active with the group. Their thinking, not mine. I don't know what the duration of time is before the site removes an individual who hasn't visited the site. I do get notification of when a person is removed by Meetup, and it shows me their attendance stats. Most I have seen removed were those who haven't visited the site in three months and have never RSVP'd for an event; or in rare times, I have seen folks removed after months of not visiting the site, but have RSVP'd no once or twice.
Have a Great Day,
