For this Check-In RSVP, Answer this Question:
>>> Is everything OK with YOU personally TODAY? <<<
There is NO actual physical MEETING!, you are simply reporting in to your friends and to the group.
RSVP --- YES - if you want notifications when people make comments on this event.
RSVP --- NO - Meetup has made it hard to RSVP no, so we don't use that for any sort of signal.
Remember that you can change your RSVP as you situation changes.
You may make a comment in the RSVP comment field about any rumors you are hearing. You can also use the number of guests you are bringing (0-4) as a coding system to indicate messages to your personal friends.
However, an easier place for your friends to find you (with a bookmark) and to communicate is in your profile for this group. Your specific profile for this specific group can be found on the member tab to the left of this page (here: http://www.meetup.com/alerts/members ).
On your group profile you will see a text data entry field called: STATUS CHECK HERE:..... You must click 'edit group profile' to tell your friends what is going on with you.
DO NOT POST to the group email 'mailing list' unless you have something real/confirmed on a MEGA event.
My Personal Note: (to add some positivity to this group's somber mission) For me is is helpful to remember that the greatest freedom is within oneself and within the embrace of God's Divine Love, where ever you may find it.
Question: "So the idea is to just check in, and you will alert everyone if something comes up?" Answer: No, not really. Everyone who wants to, can respond to a Check-In RSVP. The RSVP is a place where you can check on you friends, and read rumors.
Anyone can email an alert by emailing the entire group using the mailing list here:
Here is the web-form to email the group (not sure this works for regular members): http://www.meetup.com/alerts/messages/send/
Or send email using your home email account using you meetup validated email address: [masked]
If people start disappearing or reporting trouble on their check-in RSVP and I can confirm a serious government problem, I will email an alert. But actually anyone else can do that also (with good confirmation).
Note meetup.com only allows a member to send to 3 different meetup mailing lists over a 24 hour period. Yes they do enforce that limit. You may want save one group for us, by only emailing to a maximum of 2 other meetup groups.
