Permit organizers to control the timing of event reminders (both how many days before the event they go out and the time of day). Thanks!
The auto reminder should be controlled by Organizer because the reminder is really not very useful 1) if it does not contain the Organizer reminders and updates and 2) is sent before the RSVP close. I usually have RSVP close 2 days before the event and then send out email reminders with meeting location and event instructions info specifics to all RSVPers, but Meetup always sends a reminder 1 day before the event which is redundant and usually too late for my events.
My events happen weekly at noon. Meetup emails everyone the morning of the event about next week's event. This causes confusion: "Oh, it's next week, I thought it was today?" And frustration: "Hey, I haven't even made it to this week's event, your already pitching next week?"
