  • If you are unable to send a message it may be because you’ve sent too many messages in a row, your messages were too similar, or your messages have been marked as unwelcome by other members or our spam filters.

    If your account has been disabled due to spam and you'd like to reactivate it, please submit a request here and select I can’t log in.

    You may also be unable to message a member because their Message button is not clickable or missing. This may be due to messaging privacy settings that prevent you from messaging them and is not related to spam.

    How do I prevent my messages from being marked as spam?

    Best practices for messaging:

    • Don’t send messages too frequently: Avoid sending repeated messages to members both inside and outside of your groups.
    • Don’t send marketing-focused messages: Avoid sending promotional offers, deals, or solicitations.
    • Don’t copy and paste messages too often: Avoid sending exact copies of messages to large groups of members.
    • Keep your messages relevant: Try to keep the topic of your messages relevant to a group's interests when sending messages to members.
    • Be appropriate: Make sure your messages are appropriate for all members. You can reference our Usage and Content Policies for more information.

    If you receive spam or an inappropriate message from a member or organizer, you can block them or report their content as spam. We review all spam reports and block accounts that are flagged repeatedly.

  • Meetup’s Troubleshooting team serves organizers who encounter technical problems on Meetup’s website or apps. Troubleshooters listen to organizer feedback and test every situation for potential errors. That way, organizers can focus on what they do best: creating community!

    Some of the most common problems organizers face are related to browser trouble, questions about emails and member notifications, or questions about payments. The troubleshooting team works with each organizer to test their problem and provide a solution or an explanation. In some cases, bugs in our platform are uncovered and troubleshooters escalate these bugs to our engineers to create a fix.

    The Troubleshooting team works side-by-side with our engineers to create workarounds for bugs and report answers back to organizers directly and through the Help Center. Meetup’s Troubleshooters keep the entire team laser-focused on listening to our organizers.

    Want to submit a question or problem to the Troubleshooting team?

    The best way to reach the Troubleshooting team is through the Help Center. The Help Center’s “Get Help” form organizes frequently asked questions and allows troubleshooters to reply swiftly and accurately.

    To submit a question from the Help Center:

    1. Make sure you're signed in. Click the Sign in button in the top right-hand corner.
    2. Click the blue Get Help button in the bottom right-hand corner.
    3. Enter your question into the text box and we'll show you our top recommendations for articles that may answer your question.
    4. If you need more assistance, click I Still Need Help.

  • There are a couple of reasons why you might receive an error when attempting to upload a photo to Meetup.

    Whether it’s for your profile, a group, discussion, or an event, photos need to be smaller than 10MB and be in JPG, PNG, or unanimated GIF format. Animated GIF files are not currently supported.

    If your photo is larger than 10MB, here are some things you can do to reduce the size.

    1. Try saving it as a .jpg (if it’s not one already)
    2. Resize it to a smaller resolution

    Both of these steps can be done using a simple photo editor on a computer or online.

    If you’re trying to upload a photo to a group's photo album, keep in mind that every album has a limit of 500 photos. But, there’s no limit to the number of albums a group can have. If the current one has hit its limit, just start a new one.

    Why can't I upload a photo?

  • If a member’s Message button is not clickable or missing, they may have privacy settings that prevent you from messaging them.

    You can choose to receive messages:

    • From any member of Meetup
    • From members in groups that you're also a member of
    • Only from organizers

    If you are unable to message a member then you are not in one of the categories they have selected.

    Customize your privacy settings to control who can contact you directly.

    Why am I unable to message a member?
  • If your group’s organizer has enabled the group mailing list address, anyone can send a message and Meetup will notify all members who have email updates turned on. To start, check out Mailing list under the More tab on your group’s page.

    If your fellow members aren’t receiving notification of your message, it’s likely for one of these reasons:

    Is it your first time using the mailing list?

    If so, check your inbox for an email asking you to confirm you wanted to send a message to the entire group. You’ll need to click the link in that email to confirm and send the message. If you don’t see the email in your main inbox, be sure to check other folders (like Spam).

    Are you emailing from the right address?

    Your message will only go through if you’re writing from an email address we recognize as belonging to a member of that group. We do this to prevent spam from reaching Meetup members’ inboxes. So, double-check that you’re using the email address associated with your Meetup account.

    Does your email include an attachment that is too large?

    Messages sent via the mailing list currently have a total size limit of 2MB. (This limit includes the message itself, plus any attachments.) If your attachment is close to 2MB, there’s a good chance the message won’t send.

    Why can't I email my Meetup group’s mailing list address?
