I’m not sure that this is a problem for most meetup.com groups, but the Columbus Techlife group schedules quite a large number of meetups. For a group of over 600 people, that’s a good thing. There’s a pretty wide variety of events, covering the wide variety of interests among the group. And I get an email every single time one is added, a reminder as it approaches, and another right before it.
Meetup doesn’t have any options to turn off these emails either. Apparently, if I want to not get emails about every new event, I would have to leave the group, which would then mean I couldn’t RSVP to the events I am actually interested in!
C’mon Meetup, I have plenty of other ways to know of upcoming events, I follow the group’s founders on Twitter, for example. Give me the option to turn off those emails!
