I usually dislike it when people post to respond rather than comment, but in this case, I wanted to make a post because I've seen people comment on this numerous times.
This is in response to the previous post about meetups
. I'll lj-cut the less-important parts for the sake of your friends pages, but PLEASE read this whole thing if you go, want to go, or complain about the meetup.
The reason why meetups are the fourth Tuesday of every month is, in part, what kunzite1
said: that's what meetup.com randomly chose.
Now that we're not using meetup.com anymore really (because we didn't want to pay for it)-- and actually, even before that --people are asking why we still have it on Tuesdays when that's such a silly day for so many people.
So here's the reason: the few times that anyone tried to move it via damnportlanders, it didn't work and usually resulted in a lot of stupid drama and angst (no, seriously)
. ( Collapse )
Another reason why I'm not inclined to go through the hassle of changing it is because it doesn't matter WHAT day of the week and time we do it, a bunch of people aren't going to be able to show up. That's how life is-- no matter what you do, someone whines.( Collapse )
Also, a plea regarding location: please please please please don't make me try to find a new location =P ( Collapse )
And last but not least: I have volunteered to be the person who runs the meetups, but I will be out of town until late August or September. I have asked cheekyassmonkey
to help me out by posting reminders to DP and calling McMenamins in advance, but I won't be here to really assess and make any major changes. I can try, but it might be best to just wait on it until I get back.
*whew* I hope this answers all your questions. Maybe I should create a meetup FAQ that the userinfo can link to @_@
Anywho, have a nice day ^_^
