I'm done with this nonsense. Closed groups? No thank you! I like the idea of open groups. Glocals is for people who come and live in Switzerland and might not know anybody. I have been in that situation and it is when you need to meet friends the most.
Ending up up my events alone? You could not be more wrong, sir. Check my events. I end up having more and more people comming. Hence why I want to avoid the no-shows-I-dont-care-about-others-not-being-able-to-go-if-event-is-full.
And no, I don't "pin" my happiness in other people attending the event. I would be also be quite happy going on my own. Which I do, from time to time. I am just happier with other people. Especially when they make me feel they are happy to attend my events.
Paul on his own? Have you ever been to one of his events? I have. It was great to meet so many people in such a nice setting. If I lived in Geneva I would attend many more.
So. I am going to follow my suggestion as per my message above:
I will add the following lines to all my events:
<< Please note that if you sign in for this activity and you don't turn up, your behaviour will be reported. Your name will be in a private list labelled "?". To get your name off the "?" list, just email me to apologize. A suggestion to cover possible extra costs is apreciated. If your name is already published in that list then you will be move to a list labelled " :( ". These lists will be shared with other users who organize activities. Many of them (including myself) may not accept " :(" users. By registering in this event you give us rights to use these lists.
Disclaimer of responsability: You are personally responsible for yourself and your actions. Nobody else in the group including myself can be held responsible for anything you do under any circumstances. I am NOT a mountain guide a nanny or a guardian angel. I'm not spiderman either. By registering, you accept these facts and assume your own risks.
Thank you. >>
