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

I really DO NOT LIKE the new home page. Much perfer the old one.

The old home page was much more useful.

        I do not care for the new home page. I prefer to see the calendar as it was, with the comments. I also need to see at a glance what is coming up for the groups I am in, and if I have RSVP'd. I don't care to see what is going on around me. If I did then I would be searching and signing up to those when I want. This new look is actually more time consuming for me and that is not what I want. This went from a nice interactive page to a blah list of stuff I don't need to see.

        As organiser of a group I have received many comments from my group members saying much the same as others here that they are now missing events due to the feed not being the first thing they see. Most people I have spoken to liked the news feed and calendar being on the home page.

        I am all for change and improvements but I feel this time this isn't easier for members.

        I am aware feed is still there but not straight forward to see quickly at a glance.

        Hope you can take on board peoples requests for feed to be on home page again.

        :-)

        I actually like the look and feel of the new homepage and prefer the display of events to the previous feed, However the loss of the ability to filter out the events that I am not attending unfortunately far outweighs all the other changes put together.

        It would be nice to see the calendar back the old way too, where you can see events you RSVPed for and events you have attended

        I'm really despise this drastic & unnecessary change to our home page that's being forced on us by Meetup. We want our old "NEWSFEED" on the left panel back! It is NOT simpler - its looks crowded, less streamlined, and contains info I don't want in my face.

        If I really want learn about other meetups & events, I can use the "find Meetup" search, plus you sent this info to us already in an email every week. I don't like this change to my home page at all.

        Why are trying fix what already worked? Please at least give us a choice - so I can select the classic non-invasive layout below. Bring back the NEWSFEED & Weekly Overview of events in my Meetup groups.

        Where are the comments? Hiddnen?
        I would like to read other people's comments.

        I would very much like to have feed and calendar on one page to make it easier for me to decide which meetup to attend. The new format makes it harder for me to choose which meetup to attend since I have to go back and forth "home page" and "my feed" page.

        The way I used to learn of newly-added meetups was by glancing at the left column of the Meetup home page. That way I was alerted immediately -- even before any email arrived -- and could RSVP before the event filled up.

        I don't need to have my next RSVP event in bold at the top of the page... that's a waste of "prime real estate" (the info has already been exported to my personal calendar). And if I want to see a chronilogical order of Meetups, I can do that with Meetups' calendar function.

        What I want (and need) to see on the home page is what NEW MEETUPS have been added or changed --- NOT CHRONILOGICAL. Often it's when someone else RSVPs... say, for a meetup two months from now... that the info comes to my awareness, and I can sign up for it NOW, before it fills up.

        One of the meetup groups I belong to has events that fill up within an hour of being announced, usually before the email arrives in my mailbox. If you wait for the email, you'll likely be stuck on a waiting list for the event. So I need to see the new events listed -- front & top, on the Meetup home page -- so I don't miss out.
