Some of you have started tracking particular threads.

You might receive a post saying "Advice for...".

These are advice threads for the particular forum that are pinned to the top of the forum for newcomers.  They are, unfortunately, automatically sent out to those who are tracking a forum.

In truth, they're just "help files" for those confused about what to post (we all have forgotten to add location, or date, or other information that is helpful or even necessary) - they are NOT meant as advice to the members in general - but I can't find a way to avoid having them sent out at messages - so just ignore them if you get them in email.

If you have advice for anyone using the particular forum, send it to me and I'll add it for the newcomers to that forum.  They are not meant to be complete, but just a starting point so that people can quickly find what they need, such as how to post a MeetUp, or how to encourage a discussion.

Someone had confused them for some sort of "advice column" for gamers, so I thought I'd clarify.

Feel free to just skip them.  That they get sent out at all is an artifact of the structure of the MeetUp site, nothing more.

PS, DO get involved in posting, making suggestions, etc.

As I run a weekly Sunday game, have a family, and as Norm knows have always welcomed guests from Meetup group (have made several offers), a campaign that has run for 32 years, six years here in Austin (Norm was one of the early players), I am a relative newcomer to being active on the Meetup site despite having been a member since 2009.  I'm positive there are things you would love to see here that you have remained silent about in the past.  And DO suggest corrections, etc.


The goal is for you to have a moderator who will actively greet newcomers, help people that ask for help, and answers to Norm (who has the final decision on anything with my full support).

Let us know how this site can better meet your table-top role-playing needs.
