By starting a Community group you'll have access to all Interest | Hobby group features and our Contributor feature.
With the Contributor feature active, the page reconfigures to display 'Post Event' and 'Start Group' prompts. Members can in turn set up their own Organiser or Group pages which will then be linked to the Community page. When new events are submitted, if approved by you, they appear in your upcoming events list and the organiser behind the event is added as a Contributor. This is great way of encouraging others to participate and grow the events list.
As part of the Contributor feature, you can include your own terms or conditions, which new contributors will have to agree to. You can also grant various levels of access, allowing contributors to post freely, or electing to review and approve events prior to being published.
Newly created Groups may not be approved or published if;
(a) selling products or services is the main objective
(b) there is little or no meaningful content
(c) cover images contain marketing material
GROUP NAMETake care when naming the Group; the name forms the pages URL and can only be changed once after the first event is posted. Where possible choose a short, yet descriptive name.
(a) you have the right to use the name,
(b) it does not violation or breach any copyright, IP, trademark or other naming rights.
Community Meets reserves the right, where deemed necessary to request proof of ownership or naming rights. Creating Pages to reserve a name is not allowed; inactive pages and content maybe removed from the website at the sole discretion of Community Meets.
DESCRIPTIONThe more information you can provide, the better. This may also assist with the approvals process, as pages with little or no meaningful content may not be approved.
Some things you may like to cover;
● A general overview of the group
● Type of events that will be posted
● The contributor feature, if active
● The benefits of joining the group
● Any associated costs or fees
● Guidelines, rules, punctuality
● Event difficulty and fitness
● Health or personal insurance
LOCATIONA location lets members know where the group is based. For safety reasons, Community Meets recommends adding a general location such as a suburb, versus a physical address.
