No one likes spammy or low quality discussion threads. To help address that problem, we’re launching a new feature that gives you more control over your Meetup Group Discussions. Flip the toggle 'on' if you'd like members to be able to start a discussion. Or, toggle it to 'off' so that only organizers and the group leadership team can start discussions, limiting members to reply only.
Currently the default ‘on’ setting allows anyone, including members, to start a discussion. You can change this anytime by toggling it to ‘off.’ As an organizer, having the ability to limit who can initiate new threads gives you more control over the quality of your Meetup Group content.
Further details about this feature:
- The option to reply to a thread will remain open no matter the toggle position
- Only organizers and co-organizers can enable and disable the toggle
- Anyone in the leadership team (including assistant organizers and event organizers) can initiate a thread even if the toggle is set to 'off'
