I did discover this! In an effort to boost the OBX week, I copied the link to my Facebook page and logged off from the CVT web site. Upon clicking my Facebook link as an “outsider” I was able to see the description of the event and the invitation to join. I could also, however, see any comments that had been posted to date on the event page. I’m not sure if this is intentional or not, but if so, it would make sense to keep our nitty gritty on the forum site, away from prying eyes of strangers who have not joined. Unfortunately, that’s all it shows, the name of the event, the home page picture and the comments. The description, cost, additional pictures, is not shown at all.
Ah, okay, so no benefit to creating a discussion group that couldn’t be accomplished on the event page, just excess baggage carried over from meetup. It’s workable, if it worked….I do not get notifications from the discussion groups. Not even to this forum. I have to check back each day and visit to see if there are updates. The bright side is, I get points for visiting each day!!
I’m not sure I understand the benefit of transferring discussions from the event page to a forum. I find myself bouncing back and forth between the two to make sure I don’t miss anything. As of late, I’m not receiving notifications when the forums are updated….yes, I’ve checked the box to email notify box 🙂
