Community Pages are designed to make it easy for people to find, follow and contribute events. The page appears in the Groups list and behaves similar to a Group Page, unless the contributor feature is active.
When the Contributor feature is turned on, the page reconfigures to display 'Setup an Event' and 'Start a Group' prompts. Members can then setup their own Group or Organiser pages, directly at the Community page. When an events is created at one of these pages, you will be notified, and if approved by you, that event appears in your Activity list and the organiser is added to a list of Community Contributors.
Encouraging others to contribute is a great way to grow your Community and get others on board.
Contributors can be assigned various levels of access and be upgraded to run sub-communities. To learn more about the Contributor feature, select 'Contributors' at the page menu.
Newly created pages are reviewed before being published. Please note that Community Meets may not approve pages that:
(a) focus on selling products or services
(b) have little or no meaningful content
Take care when naming the Community. The name forms the pages URL and can only be changed once. Its also best to choose a short yet descriptive name.
Prior to getting started please confirm:
(a) you have the right to use the name,
(b) you are not in violation or breach of any copyright, IP, trademark or any other naming rights.
COMMUNITY MEETS reserves the right to remove or edit content, and 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.
Add plenty of useful information and endeavour to answer questions members may have. Some things you might wish to consider are:
● Describe why the community page has been setup
● Outline the benefits of joining the community
● Encourage members to setup and contribute events
● Encourage members to start a group
● Outline any community policies or rules
The location provides members with an idea of where the Community is based. These details are displayed on the page.
Community pages are a created in the Public forum, they can not be set to Private.
