  1. 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

    • 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.

          • Bring back member photos

            I used to be able to see many pictures of other members, all the ones they had uploaded as well as tagged photos. Now all I can see is one photo of their uploaded pictures (and it won't allow a bigger picture by clicking it anymore) and their tagged pictures.
            The thumbnail picture is often too small to tell what someone looks like so you can't recognize them at a meetup. And many people don't have any tagged photos, so that leaves just one small thumbnail to see, when they may have uploaded many to share.

                • Schedule an event but have it hidden from members until I want to announce it

                  I would love to be able to write up an event and have it all ready to post, but keep it hidden from everyone until such a time as I want to actually put it out there as an event option. Some events take some time to write up, and there are days that I have more time than others to do work on writing them up. Please make this an option.

                  • 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 :)

                    • You have removed the Manual waiting list!! WHY?????

                      You have removed the Manual waiting list!! WHY?????
                      I agree and understand that meetup is about bringing people together, but once you have formed a community you need to be able to manage some events more than others.
                      We only use the manual waiting list function for our meetups so that we can ensure that on some events that have restricted numbers (e.g. accommodation, seats at a restaurant) we can clearly control who is coming (someone that really wants to come) and who is just someone that is just hitting the yes button and wasting the limited spaces not to…

                      • Show when members RSVPd

                        Show when members RSVPd yes or were moved automatically from the waitlist to the Yes list. I like to keep track of who no-showed, so as it stands now I can't tell if the person was moved onto the Yes list automatically the morning of the meeting, or if they have been on the Yes list for 2 months and decided to no-show.

                        • Editing a comment in event page

                          The ability to edit (fix) a comment you left on an event page - especially if you made an embarrassing spelling mistake. Yes, I know you can copy paste, delete and repost, but it's not robust.

                            • A way to bulk remove members from your group using a criteria like date they joined/paid meet up fee's

                              In our group everyone pays a fee each year for being in the group and I am finding it more than tedious having to go through each member to check if they have paid, even with using the Meet up dues tab under Members, i would be great to be able to create a group of people out of the membership.......and then either remove them, or email them or whatever...

                                  • Do not post the comments from NO RSVP's to the conversation stream.

                                    I do not believe that the reason that someone is NOT attending the event is pertinent to the event. Leave these comments under their name in the NO RSVP section. That way if the event host wants to see why people aren't attending they can see it, but the negative comments and non sequiturs are not being added to the conversation stream.
                                    THIS IS NOT THE SAME AS NO RSVP EMAILS! Meetup HQ, please don't merge this with that idea again, they are not the same. This is referring to comments in the event, not email.

                                    • Add the ability to name your +1

                                      The ability to name the +1 (or 2 or 3 etc) when RSVP'ng to a meetup. Sure, sharing the meetup via email is great, but sometimes pointless if I'm sitting right next to the person I'm +1'ing. Say for instance, I want to bring my GF and she's in the same meetup group. Would be easier to automatically add her to the RSVP list as my +1 so she gets any notifications and it's added to her calendar.

                                      • Return "save as draft" button to Co-Organizers

                                        It is important for co-organizers to be able to see drafts of meetups. Please return "draft" button for all who can schedule a meetup, and return the tab so leaders see each others' drafts.

                                        • 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.
