Good morning, everyone!
Recently, we've been noticing an influx of a few different things in our Meetups & Events Section, so I wanted to do what I did in our Introduction Section and review the difference between the Meetups and Events and Personals Section.
The Personals Section (https://www.ddlgforu...um/6-personals/) is for seeking ad or personal ads that follow the guidelines provided once you click "start new topic." This is the place where you can indicate what you're looking for in a partner, and all of the personal details that come along with it. Be aware that we will remove any external contact information you provide here, as there is a space for you to link your accounts on your profile once you friend someone, and we will not be responsible for your personal information floating around since our forums are public. You are more than welcome to bump your topic here as well as long as you follow the appropriate ways to do this.
The Meetups & Events Section (the place we're in now!) is for seeking pre-existing events/meetups in a specific area, or creating a new potential meetup/event in your area. This area is not for finding new partners, or looking for friendships/relationships in your area. It is specifically for meetups, events, and group functions -- not for dating. If you are looking for a connection that is local to you in a romantic/friendship sense, you can absolutely specify that you are looking for local connections in your Personal Ad or Friends Zone Post. Please do not post something like
"Hi, I'm looking for friends/daddies in the Brooklyn, NY area". That is ânot what this section is for.
Similarly, please double check if your area already has a thread before creating a new one! If there are multiple threads for the same area/state, it can become difficult to get something going and easier to miss a fun event near you that already exists! The search bar is super helpful, and if you are the one creating the post, make sure you tag it appropriately so others can find it easier!
After this announcement goes live, the staff is going to be sorting through the most recent posts in our Meetups and Events Section and removing any that read like personal/seeking ads. This is your warning notice! Please heed it!
Thank you for reading, and happy event hunting!
