Get calendar to work on export to new Yahoo calendar. Puts in one day ahead and wrong time. Day late for a meetup the other day--ANGRY!!
Since Yahoo changed their calendar a few months ago the Export to Calendar function has not worked. It always tries to set the wrong date--one day ahead and in the AM (maybe it's trying to use GST now that I think about it???). If you don't catch it that's a huge problem--as in I was a day late for a book discussion earlier in the week. VERY annoying! PLEASE please fix!!!
The problem lies with Yahoo!, not Meetup. I contacted Yahoo, and they told me the default time is Greenwich Mean Time unless the user selects another time zone. (However, Yahoo does not provide a means to do this.) The CSR said that I had one chance to set my prefererd time zone, and the window of opportunity is now closed, so I must manually re-set the date each time I export an event to the Yahoo! calendar. BS. I'm switching to Google.

I think what's happening is that Meetup sends a GST time and Yahoo interprets it as local time.
On the other hand, I can't get export to Google calendar work at all.
