Not everyone is "Out" as Poly or nonmonogamous, and probably don't want everyone to know they are members here. So here are some tips and useful info for privacy:
1- Remember! Our membership list is viewable Only to other members in this group. Rest assured, if someone is not a member, they can not see a membership list, at all.
2- Under meetup.com, your email address is not viewable to anyone. Not even the Organizers. You are labeled only as your meetup account name. There is an icon that looks like an envelope on your meetup profile and that's the only way we can contact you via email. If you get spam, then it must be from another member---simply notify the Organizers and they will ban that person.
3- We do not approve anonymous memberships, and we require at least a first name and profile picture. However, you do not have to give your full name on your meetup account.
Instead of Jacqueline Reynolds, you could simply call yourself "Jackie R.", for example.
(If you have a very common first name, like John, or Matt or Mike or Amy, please leave at least a Last Initial---it would be useful for Event Hosts to know which one to expect at meetups! Thanks!)
4- Privacy Tip!! Under your profile for meetup, if you need to, be sure to click the Options "Hide my meetup groups from others" and "Hide My interests from others". You may need to do this under your profile for every meetup you are a member of, if you belong to more than just this one.
This is by far the easiest and most effective way of making sure people outside of our group do Not know that you're here!
5-NOTE: Unless you are an Organizer or Event Host, do Not message other members of this group unless you have met them at least once in person and made acquaintances. This is made clearly in our group Rules. This is just good manners, and helps keep our meetup feeling like the Safe Space we want it to be. Again, if you feel like you've had any violation of your privacy by another member of our group, be sure to contact the Organizers.
6- Contacts from other members: If you do not want other members contacting you for any reason, you can adjust settings to address this. Go to the very top right side of the page, and you'll see a button that says "Settings". Hit it, and go to the page for your Account. On the left bar, there's an option for "Email & Notifications". On that page, go to bottom. You'll see the option "Who can contact you on the site?" It will give you options for either "Just Organizers" or "Members of your meetups". Choose whichever you prefer!
If I have left out anything in error, y'all please let me know! Contact Robert R for any questions.
