  1. Allow the Organizer to disable the "Good to See You" feature.

    A lot of people find all the emails this feature generates extremely annoying and unnecessary. Failure to respond creates an unintended slight.

    • Bring the colors back ... the centering option back... I want to be able to create an event page that captures audience attention

      Bring the colors back ... the centering option back... I want to be able to create an event page that captures audience attention, and makes them want to read it to find out the details.... not just skim through and miss things

      • inner, more privileged group within group

        This will be a game changer feature for our group if it becomes available.

        This may be similar to the other posts regarding the concept of subgroups. Although each post with that noun mentioned could mean different thing. So it's better for me to post this separately instead of of commenting on the others. This will be very useful feature for our group to have is to be able to separate members into 2 categories: public vs private, for the lack of better terms.

        The intent is to divide them into committed/regular vs less committed
        members for our team. That…

        • Please add the ability to re-start a member's 30 day trial period!

          If someone wasn't able to attend any events during their 30-day free trial period, then I don't think it's fair to make them pay dues just so they can attend their first event. Please consider making a feature so that organizer's can re-start the trial period. Thanks!

          • Please reinstate the ability for any member to create an event for the group.

            Forcing me to add everyone as an event organizer is cumbersome. The old style worked great for traditional meetups--where everyone is an equal participant in a group. Your new method seems to be designed for people who are selling attendance in their groups--a yoga class instructor, for example, doesn't want anyone adding yoga classes. But meetups were originally for community groups, and I need everyone in my neighborhood group to post and host events for the neighborhood.

            • Go back to "This Meetup is full" wording. Using "This Meetup is sold out." is misleading and makes it sound like we're selling tickets.

              Go back to "This Meetup is full" wording instead of "This Meetup is sold out," which is misleading and makes it sound like we're selling tickets to attend our events. Of the average five events per week in my group, we never charge by event, so this wording makes absolutely no sense, whereas "full" would make sense for everybody, whether they charge or not.

                  Please make the edit attendance function available on the mobile app. We have a large group and really want to track attendance on the spot.

                  • Be clear about what role you drop to when stepping down as organizer.

                    Make it clear what happens when you step down as organizer. Do you become a regular member? A co-organizer? ...

                    It would be good to be able to simply demote yourself to co-organizer when transferring main organizer to somebody else. So without dropping down to member status first.

                    • Why can't we sort our groups alphabetically? It's dumb to be able to search by popularity, most recent, closest, etc., but not alphabetical.

                      Add alphabetical to the ways to sort our groups. It used to be automatically alphabetical. Just because some people wanted different sort choices, doesn't mean alphabetical shouldn't be an option. It's the most wanted and most common sort method. If I'm looking for a group in my list, I don't want to look through page after page of images of my groups - I want to just sort alphabetically to quickly find it. I don't know its popularity or most recentness or even proximity ranking. Dumb!!

                        • Automated "RSVP is now open" notification email

                          We need an automated way of notifying members that RSVP is now open. Right now, admins have to send the email manually.

                          • Not adapted to bilingual areas

                            Where we need to write group titles in both languages, fields are too short. Or we should be able to duplicate the site and have a language selector. However, users should be able to see posts on both languages. Maybe have on demand translation of a post.

                            • Announcement section at top of home page

                              It would be great if there was an announcement section at the top of the meet up page before the events. That way it would be easier to encourage people to participate in polls, read bulletins and I could provide my meet up mobile number (I have one dedicated to meet ups!).

                                • Auto-populate "Introduce Yourself" with Account bio.

                                  Whenever I join a new group I tend to use the same words in my Account bio for the "Write a short bio" field in the "Introduce Yourself" form. I think it should just auto populate or there should be a button to quickly copy your Account bio into this field. Of course if most users use a different bio per group then maybe this is not the way to go, but it would sure help me :)

                                  • Add Location to the box that opens for the person when you're looking for carpooling.

                                    People are always looking for carpool to a hike or an event after signing up for the event. If you would add their Location in the box that opens when you place the cursor on their name or picture, it would be a great help and save lots of time from going back and forth to the Location page for each member on the signed up list. Thanks sooooo... very much.

                                        • Please put in a private messeges inbox in the apps

                                          I need to see messeges sent by people from various meetups directly to me without going to the desktop webapp
