( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
So I don't get it; when I went there, there were options for where to meet in Cleveland, from which I figured a Cleveland monk had already signed up (which did surprise me a little), but when I signed in, it turns out there are no other Cleveland monks. So I guess I'll be at Chili's alone :-) But my quesion is, how do they get those locations? Does meetup.com have deals with chains to present them as meeting locations? I don't have have a problem with that, I am just curious.

Update: OK, I can be a little lazy, but the answer was pretty easy to find. From their "about meetup.com" page:
How will you make money?

We plan on two main ways: (1) We'll get paid by retailers that have good MEETUP spots (e.g. cafés, bookstores, big pet stores, restaurants, videogame retailers) to "slot them in" to Venue Voting. Like any business, these companies will pay to increase traffic and sales. (Note: We never force a MEETUP to be at a particular venue. MEETUPs only happen at places that the people vote for.) (2) We'll get paid by users for access to some upcoming, extra cool features.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
