Describe the missing feature that would help you make the most of Meetup

Please give organizers the ability to restore the old format. Or at least change the current one.

It would be nice to be able to restore to a previous format if the new imposed format isn't generally acceptable to the group. This new one doesn't work well with our needs and I'd like to be able to restore to a previous one or design my own.

        Notice the date of the completed message is 2011-01-27.

        This item is not complete. Never has been.

        There are 10,501 votes to have this feature returned.

        Come on Meetup Dev. Please pay attention to your organizers.

        Prioritize work by Organizer vote count.

        Specifically, Greg Whalin flagged this item as complete on May, 24, 2011... and this is wrong.

        This is incorrect.

        This has never been fixed.

      • David FavorDavid Favor commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This is not completed.

        This format was never restored.

        Having Group Descriptions expanded is highly useful, which is why there are 10,000+ votes.

        Always amazing to me that Meetup randomly opts to develop other features and ignores this feature, which has the all time highest number of votes I've seen so far.

        Why not honor Organizers, the people paying to keep Meetup.com running, and put back this simple feature?

        I agree this new page design limits us as organizers. Please restore the old format

      • BelindaBelinda commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I have three custom-designed arts meetup sites that I had a professional website designer create for me.

        Why are you making terrible changes that are unnecessary, unwanted and highly opposed by the organizers who pay your subscriber dues?

        This is short-sighted, arrogant and VERY BAD business.

        I wish I new what the old format looked like. Because I am also not happy with this one.

      • AnonymousAnonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I don't know what the fuck they doing at google but the new format of google groups sucks shit. Why the fuck did this dumbasses try to fix something that wasn't broken. The old format worked just fine but I keep getting force into the new one and it is very difficult to find the menu to reset to the old one. They can shove the new format up their fucking asses. I am fed up with this shit and I am going to delete all things google from my PC including my browswer.

        the new search format for meetup days and times is pathetic
        it now takes me alot longer to view dates and times for meetups.
        every tme i want to look at details of a meetup i need to manually change the city & mile radius that i want.
        for whatever reason it defaults to a 2 mile radius when i'm searching for a 25 mile radius.
        the previous format was so much more user friendly and fasterto get the info that i'm looking for.
        please modify this format to e way it was a fw days ago.
        i'm extremely surprised that the geniuses at HQ didn't realize that the current format is a nightmare to use.

      • emaj02emaj02 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I wish to return to the old format as well! It's far more readable and the new one
        cuts off my entire right side (as I view it)

      • AndyAndy commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        At the Home Page, the right the calendar consistently defaults to only events that I've said I'm GOING to, and every time I go back to my home page, it reverts to only GOING TO events. I want to see ALL events as my default (or let me choose my default view in my profile). Also #1 it seems to be stuck on some date in September to start off with. Why can't it start off with the current date when you visit MU? Also #2 I hate the "More" links next to later dates which will promote the missing of possible meetings; why can't this be set to default of already expanded? Seems to me that this was a giant leap backwards in development; why was this done in the first place?

        WHAT WAS WRONG WITH THE OLD FORMAT!!!!!!!!!!!! WHO ASKED FOR IT TO BE CHANGED!!!!!!!!!!????????????

      • Kat McPhoenixKat McPhoenix commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I agree. Why weren't we given a choice? Or a vote? I liked the old format. I had a few paragraphs telling what the group was about. Where did it go? How are new members supposed to know. I used to be on the home page and now it is gone!

      • NickNick commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I absolutely hate the new format, I don't want to be forced into using it! Who in their right mind actually thinks it improves anything!? Give me the option to keep the old one.

      • Rob NashRob Nash commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        dont change it! our group uses the site as a forum format, and does not need every thing to be a discussion. at least leave it as an option for the organizer to decide.

      • LotBLotB commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Cherie, please note that this "blizzard" of an Idea is listed as "completed." Thus, if you were to have any concerns about the current format, you'd probably be better off starting a new suggestion.

      • CherieCherie commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I do not know what the old format was. Also,I am too computer illiterate to take advantage of the opportunities you so generously offer.

        why would anyone design a program that does not work on blackberry's

      • Joe SweeneyJoe Sweeney commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I don't see any date/time stamps on these posts, so I'm going to add my two cents worth. I've been designing websites for 15 years, and I subscribe to the policy of Keeping It Simple. I do not like the control Meetup is enforcing over layout, especially when I'm the one paying the Organizer fees.

      • Virginia CookeVirginia Cooke commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I'm perfectly running Coasters Social Group on groupspaces now, and have no intention of returning to Meetup. Why should it be seen as superior to GS, and why would you consider returning to meetup when it gets it's act together? For me, there's more flexibility to move things around just as want them in GS.

      • LauraLaura commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Completed? I hope not! I hate that the first thing that stands out to me are group pictures on the upper right of the screen and that underneath that are updates and new discussions that are very small. The left part of the screen is just wasted space with what the categories chosen by the organizer of what the meetup is about and then all the other groups members can possibly join. I hate that you can't click next page to view past meetups, especially when you are looking for a specific event. Why do you have to keep clicking "more"? It's stupid. I shut down my group until I see improvements from meetup. So now all I see is an obnoxious light bulb as a reminder to schedule an event. Why can't you skip the enormous light bulb and just list Recent Meetups for those groups who haven't yet scheduled new meetups? Until I see a version remotely similar to the old format, I will not renew my group on meetup. I am still sticking with GroupSpaces.com until you stop apologizing for the fact you screwed up and return to the old format.
