It's not terribly obvious how to add a pin to the map. If you want to tag yourself:
- Go to the map.
- Click the giant red
EDITbutton. (note: Make sure you are signed into Google, otherwise this will not show up)
- Right click the location where you want your pin to add it.
- Make sure you put your username as the name of the pin.
- Click 'done'.
Part 1 has concluded with the choice to hold several little meetups rather than a single unified location. As such, it's time to choose the locations of our meetups. To a degree, when is going to bleed into location choices, as we may want to have our meetup as part of a larger event (such as PAX or such).
Basic things to keep track of
- If you suggest a location that's your hometown, chances are quite good that if your location is chosen, you're going to be relied on to volunteer for helping to plan that meetup. Keep that in mind. It will cost you less monetarily, but probably more of your time.
- If your suggestion has a date component, make note of that, and why.
- Personally, I'd recommend keeping meetups outside of large cities, to try to lower total living expenses such as food and lodging. That gets thrown out the window for other events, though.
- Upvote the location you want to go to.
- If you haven't pinned yourself on the map yet, don't forget to do that! It helps track interest, as well as your location!
With that said, bring on the suggestions!
