Our #1 priority in this group is safety. Because of that, we have established these regulations to help this LARGE group remain a comfortable, safe place to play and make friends.
YOUR PROFILE PICTURE
You must post and maintain a picture of yourself in your profile. There are scary people out there, and we want to make sure you are not one of them!
Please be respectful of others. We're here to have fun and support each other! Do not engage in drama, flaming, or judgmental arguments. No offensive content or language please. Do not speak about anyone in this group negatively. Keep things upbeat! If you cause problems I will warn you, and then it's game over. I will reserve the right to remove any member whom I feel is a disturbance to the group for any reason at any time.
PLEASE DO NOT BRING YOUR SICK CHILDREN TO OUR EVENTS!. If your child is sick please do not bring them to any event until they have been without a fever for 24 hours without medication and have no other symptoms. Just use good judgment. If you are not sure, it's better to just stay home.
This group by nature is very photogenic. We occasionally like to illustrate our printed materials and website with photos of members and their children involved in Meet-up activities. By joining you consent to occasionally have your picture appear on San Diego Military Moms information pamphlets, and on the group website. Additionally, you agree that any photos you upload to the website become property of the group to display. No names will appear on any information released outside of the webpage. Please contact an organizer immediately upon joining if you have any questions or want to opt out of the photographs.
We are all here to get out and meet people. Please dont lurk! We require all new members to attend a meetup within the first 30 days or we will remove you. Once you've attended your first meetup, you will need to stay semi-active in our group. If you have not attended a playdate in over two months, you will also be removed.
Inactive members will be removed. You will be considered inactive if:
1. have not visited the community website in over a month.
2. have not attended an event in over 2 months.
RSVPing to events is very important! Please RSVP Yes, No or Maybe. If you RSVP Yes to 3 events in a row and do not show to any of them, you will be removed from the group. There is always enough time for you to change your rsvp. People are expecting you, so please show them some courtesy by updating your rsvp accordingly.
As always, there are exceptions to these rules that we understand. Please just make us aware of them, so we don't accidentally remove you. This is a "Meet Up" group, so please be active and participate in our group if you'd like to stay.
Regarding the Message Board
- PLEASE be respectful of all members when posting on the board. There will be NO tolerance for unkind or disrespectful posts.
- It's not a requirement to post on the message board; since we are a MEETUP group our focus is on attendance at playdates rather than posting on the board, however try to participate in the board as often as you can, it can be a great way to get to know some of the other members you might not see very often, or to offer support or advice to your fellow moms....if you are reading the posts it only takes just a moment to respond.
