Proper (Preferred) Meet Planning Procedure

Unread post by silvermosico » Fri Jul 22, 2016 9:54 pm

When posting in the Meet Information forum, here is a general formatting guideline/template that you can use when you setup public meets.

GREAT example here:
Sum up your meet idea
Lets all go to the Sacramento Zoo!
The Sacramento Zoo is home to over 140 native, exotic and endangered species! They have Red Pandas, North American River Otters, Tigers, and if I keep listing there won't be anymore surprises!
Date: What date did everyone or you decide on?
Cost: What is the price for an average adult? You are welcome to include optional pricing if the location offers it on their site(if any).
Location: Provide the address to either; where you wish to meet up, or the location of the venue you're going to.
Time: What time is the meet going to start?
Hours of Location (if any) or Planned Duration of meet: What are the business hours of the location that you are going to, OR how long do you intend to stay at that location?
Weather Prediction and any relevant suggestions: Describe the general weather forecast for the approximate time/day of the meet and suggest warm or cool weather clothing if you wish
Directions: Here you can provide a link to the location on Google Maps so others can get directions.

PLAN ((general idea)): Describe what your plan for the group is! If you're meeting up somewhere else first, describe how long you'll be there before you go to the intended meet location. Offer a method of contact so if someone is late they can still meet up with the group.

IF YOU NEED A RIDE!!!
Post what area of town you live in. If someone who is going lives in your area, and is able to assist, they may try to contact you about carpooling. (gas money in this scenario would be appreciated if someone's giving you a ride)
Please be aware: When you post a topic in the Meet Information forum, your first post and/or topic title may be edited by moderators to provide better immediate information. In addition, any other details (cost, dress code, what is/is not allowed, or anything else that is necessary to know) should be provided in the initiating post; it's just good etiquette, plus public meets that use our name and reputation should follow the Community Guidelines

What does that mean?
It means that if your event becomes an official event:
We might tack on a date to your post's title if there isn't already one in it.
We might edit your first post to add more info so those looking at the topic for the first time won't have to read the entire topic to get necessary info.
We however will not delete anything you write and will make sure our additions can be differentiated from your original post.

I would also like to note that we have been working on a way to include a RSVP form in meet posts where a headcount is requested/required(such as a for a BBQ, party, etc), feel free to PM myself or anyone on the Leadership Team for more info.
