MAKING YOUR MEETINGS PAGES
MEETING PAGES: INTERNATIONAL UNITED STATES
MAKING YOUR OWN MEETING PAGES
Pages made for your meeting will reside on your own site, so that you can change them without having to resend 2600 your site again and again. Send a link to email@example.com if you would like your meeting included or if you have problems. For obvious reasons, we cannot link to your site if you have illegal material or transactions of any kind as your page will be representative of 2600. Thanks for your cooperation.
If your site has disappeared it may be because it was unreachable for an extended period. If your site has returned since it was delisted, just let us know. Please try not to run your site on a flaky connection. Also, be aware that this is a volunteer effort on our part and it can take up to a month or two to make changes since this is generally done while we're putting together a new issue.
Meeting sites should contain things like the following:
Standard meeting information (Who/What/When/Why/Where)
Pictures or maps of the area (so people can find the way in an unfamiliar mall).
Maps of the roads in the area (so people can find the mall)
A history of meetings
Remember that meetings are open to all as per the meeting guidelines. Your meeting CANNOT be "sponsored" by anyone or merged with another outside organization. Also, avoid appearing to be a tight knit group as this will only discourage or intimidate new attendees. It also would be inaccurate - meetings are no more yours than they are anybody else's. Similarly, your site should only focus on the meeting itself, not activities outside of or after the meeting. If you imply that all of the cool people wind up doing one thing while the non-cool people do something else, you're creating divisions and factions that have no place here. For the same reason, we strongly discourage any kind of content that mocks or puts down any attendee(s).
WARNING: We don't like sending people to sites with pop-up or pop-under ads. Avoid putting your meeting on such a site as we may be forced to take down the link if it's annoying. Also, be sure not to use links that require visitors to login. If you use a Facebook URL, make sure it's open to non-Facebook users.
IRC USERS: Connect to irc.2600.net and go to the channel for your state or country in order to find other people in your area. Use your state's two letter abbreviation followed by 2600 in order to find the right channel (#md2600, #ct2600, etc.) If you're outside the United States, put your two letter Internet country code after the 2600 (#2600au, #2600dk). For example, California and Canada use the same two letter abbreviation (CA). The California channel would be #ca2600 while the Canadian channel would be #2600ca. Other channels may exist for specific meetings within these areas - they should be referenced in the main state or country channels so people can find them. All 2600 channels, like the meetings, are open to all.
