New Meet & Greet boards (and a little privacy)
« on: January 28, 2011, 10:04:13 AM »
Each of the Regional Boards now has its own child board for Meet & Greet Information.  This is the place to look if you want to organize or attend a meetup with other TSP Forum members in your area.

All the Meet & Greet boards are off-limits to unregistered guests, and to new members until they've made a few posts.  We hope this will help to keep unwelcome people from attending your meetup.

Has that happened before? That's a little creepy.

"Hi, I know you guys don't know me from the forum, but I decided to come anway!"

That'd freak me right out.

It hasn't happened to our knowledge at a TSP specific get together. It HAS happened (to TW & I, actually) at other gatherings.  It creeps us right out too.  And the way that Mr. Bill has it set up, any banned member won't be able to see the threads in those boards as a guest.

I'm all about meeting others but I want to know (kind of anyway) who I'm likely to meet up with.

I'm getting all the existing M&G-related posts moved into the M&G boards -- I might have that done by the end of this weekend.
