How to create a new Meetup
There are a couple of places from which you can create a new game group meetup:
- On the Meetup Map Search page (use the link at the top of the page), there is a button on the right side of the page “Create Meetup”.
- Click on Account and in the right column under Content, there is an add link after the Meetup category.
- Click on Profile, then Meetup. From your My Meetups page there is an add new meetup link near the top of the page.
Once on the create page, fill in as much information as you can for better results. Fields that are marked with a red * are required fields. You can always come back and edit any of the entries.
Once you fill in the details, click Submit. You will then be redirected to your personal “My Meetups” page that will show you all the groups to which you belong, and those which you created or are in your area. You will be sent an email with some helpful info and a link to this forum.
Free Access to All Features
New game groups automatically receive all the features of our meetups for 60 days for free. These tools include use of venues, scheduling meetings, a calendar, a private members-only forum, member joining (can be automatic or can require your approval), meeting auto-announcments, RSVP tracking, RSVP limits (total number and number of guests each member can bring), etc. If you wish keep using all of our meetup tools you’ll need to purchase an upgrade for you game group to become a full featured group again or purchase an extension to remain a full featured game group.
You never have to pay to keep your group on our site. Your group will stay in our database and can still be found by those looking for a local game group, you just won’t be able to use the meetup tools.
Your Game Group's URL
When sharing your game group's URL with others or when linking from other web sites you can use either the full URL or a shortcut to your group's main page. This only works for your group's main page, but you can remove the 'view/' portion of the URL. For example, if your group's full URL is:
You can shorten that to:
The site will automatically expand that to the correct URL
