GEOGRAPHIC - REGIONAL GROUPS

Postby Futura Girl » Wed Nov 21, 2007 1:03 pm

I would like to invite anyone who would like to form a regional group here on lotta living to please let me know.

We already have ones for Portland, Las Vegas, San Diego and a general Midwest group.

These groups allow us to send a note out (very rarely) when an Urgent Action or extra special event is coming up in a particular area.

I would love to see one in Houston, Kansas City, Seattle, D.C. and other Modern meccas. Each area needs a "local champion" willing to
1) gather the names of the users from their area
2) continue to check in from time to time to see if new people from their area need to be added to the group
3) and let me know when we need to send out notes on specific geographic issues.

see the groups list here:

p.s.
if you are interested in forming a regional group here, have no fear, i will walk you through all the steps needed.
nichols was able to put one together for san diego in a snap!

1
Let me know what geographic region you want to cover - i will set up the group and make you moderator.

2
Have two browser windows open side by side so you can see both of them at the same time.

3
Open this page in one browser
http://www.lottaliving.com/bb/memberlist.php
using the "sort by" towards the top right - SORT BY LOCATION

4
Open this page in the other browser
http://www.lottaliving.com/bb/groupcp.php

5
select your group from the pull down list.
THEN towards the bottom left of the page you will see a blank box followed by "ADD A MEMBER" This is where you will be posting your member names in.

6
go back to the memberlist page.
THEN start going down the list looking for users in your area. think of all the variations and slang terms people might use to describe the area... for example vegas might be las vegas, vegas, sin city, henderson, etc. Portland might be portland or PDX, etc...
Once you find a member select their username only and copy it to your clipboard.

7
paste the member name in the add a member box and hit enter

8
repeat over and over again.
there are only about 30 pages of users right now. shouldn't take too long.

9
plan to revisit the memberlist page from time to time and sort by "joined date" to see if any new people from your area have joined.


6
go to the member

joe,

do you want to go through and finish the OR group?
i made it up for aly - but have not seen her around.

this group thing is pretty powerful for sending out alerts when you really really need help.

I would be happy to be the "initiator" for a Houston Group... assuming no one else has stepped-up.

I will start a Kansas city Goup.
I did this for the midwest group already. I might as well do it again!
