>Well, it looks like the end of our days with Meetup is coming. After I told the group what was going on, they all agreed it was time to move along. So then I thought a Google Group would probably do the job. And now, we have one.
I’m still working out some kinks, but I think it just might work. The only thing I’m super not liking is it doesn’t appear to send out a welcome message to people who ask to join and I approve them. I know that Google Groups dropped support for custom welcome messages, but I’d just like them to receive something from Google that says they’ve been approved, here’s how you post to the list and here’s how you manage your options.
But through a bit of testing, people don’t appear to be receiving even that. So how will they ever know if they’ve been approved? How will they know how to post?
I also don’t receive notifications if people I have previously invited accept their invitations. I receive notes when I have to approve someone, but nothing for the people I’ve already invited. That’s not as big of a deal, but it’s still annoying.
But once I figure these little wrinkles out, I think we’ll be hummin’. So, if you live in the Guelph, Ontario area and want to join us for some good conversation in French, pop on over to the Google Groups page and request to join.
