No Show Policy

This group has a No Show policy. If you sign up for a Meet Up, are confirmed on the attending list and don't come without letting the event host know before hands, you'll be marked as a No Show for the event. If within a few days you haven't written a few words on the event page to apologize for your absence (we're aware last minute issues can happen and you might not be able to warn the organizer, but then it would be much appreciated to drop a word afterwards), I will be adding the No Show mention on your profile, this is more for organisational issues, not for public shaming.

Each event host has the right to remove people from their event, wether only 1 or 2 No Shows. But after the 3rd No Show, you will be removed from the group. You will get an e-mail after each No Show, almost all event hosts send reminders per message or post on the event page, plus the Meet Up system automatically sends reminders. So you should receive enough reminders not to forget about it (unless you turned off the notifications, but then you should really pay attention to your RSVPs).

Keep in mind that if you're on the waiting list, as soon as one or more spots will be free, you'll be automatically pulled up, you should get an email. I would recommend you one thing: when comes a time you know it's gonna be too late for you to make it or even know you've been pulled up, please change your RSVP to No.

This might sound strict to some people, but we don't do it just for fun. So why do we do that? Mainly because saying you'll come and not coming without apologizing is rude. We organizers do not work for Meet Up, we organize on our free time, because we want to, because we like to bring people together. We have to book a table at the restaurants, there are often lots of people on the waiting list who really wanna come, so if you’re on the attending list at the moment of the Meet Up and don’t come, that’s one spot wasted, someone else could have come and don’t forget the restaurants can also be upset to have reserved a table for us and see we are not as much as expected and might have refused other guests because of us. Plus, thinking you might come, we could think you're just late and we would wait to order for someone who's never gonna show up. So, when you RSVP, please make sure you come or sign out in time, this would avoid less stress for the event host who after 15-20 minutes sees the group is not complete, thinks about all those people on the waiting list and about the possible confrontation with the restaurant staff (you booked for 10, you're only 6, where's the rest? We refused guests for you, you should have let us know,...).

Thank you.
