I know we have to have a separate website/forums for the WIPs (thanks to the little shits running Meetup), but is it necessary to have all meetings in both places? Seems like it’s confusing to new folks who don’t see what we’re saying over here on our non-WIPs.
I'm definitely open to ideas and suggestions. The current thought process is such: *the forum is necessary for file sharing, but it's not likely to come up if people search for local writing groups *Meetup is great for connecting with local writers, but doesn't allow for the necessary file sharing

kathi: Say, Byron, where did we land on letting you know we'd be willing to be beta readers for you? I'm significantly committed, but as you said you weren't concerned about the speed of the replies, I thought I'd volunteer.

Bill: Maybe it's me, but I find this forum hard to use. I posted something about in-person meetings recently and now I can't find it.

atxdavid: Bill - I hear you - and yes, it's not the most intuitive. If you look under "General Discussion", I think you'll find the thread you're referring to there.
