STARTING A GROUP
Group pages are perfect for rallying people around an interest, hobby, cause or mission. You'll have access to smart tools that will help you manage the group and create engaging events, be they online or offline.
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
The owner will be the person or entity that created the group. Group owners are listed on the group page.
Take care when naming the Group. 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 groups to reserve a name is not allowed; inactive groups 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:
● What type of activities or events are you intending to host?
● Where might these activities take place?
● How often do you intend to organise activities?
● Why did you start the page?
● Will the page be public or private?
● Are there fees or costs associated with activities or joining the page?
● Should members have a certain level of fitness or experience?
● Will members be required to bring anything to activities?
● Are members required to have ambulance and/or health insurance?
● Are your events gender specific?
● Will you encourage members to invite friends?
A location provides members with an idea of where the group is based. These details are displayed on the page. For safety reasons, COMMUNITY MEETS recommends adding a general location, such as a suburb or area, versus a physical address.
Select an option that best describes the type of group you are starting. Once the group has been setup, you will be able to add your own keywords, these will assist others locate the group, both on and offsite.
New groups are created in the Public Forum, but can be updated to Private once the page has been created.
All content is visible to members and persons browsing the website, related content may also appear on other websites, applications and in various locations, such as in Google search results.
When a Group is set to Private, members, contacts and those invited to the group or event can view details, provided they are signed in, otherwise some content is hidden. Others may request to join the group or attend an event, however until approved, some content remains hidden.
