WordPress Meetup Southwest Florida part of official WordPress Community

On Wednesday, August 27th, I coordinated efforts with Chase Livingston via Skype to make WordPress Meetup Southwest Florida an official member of the WordPress community. “With great power comes great responsibility” in this case with a few good-faith rules for WordPress meetup, created by a group of volunteer meetup organizers:(quoted directly from the WordPress.org meetup up chapter program)

  1. WordPress Meetups are for the benefit of the WordPress community as a whole, not specific businesses or individuals. All actions taken as an event organizer are with the best interest of the community in mind.
  2. Membership in the local meetup group is open to all who wish to join, regardless of ability, skill, financial status or any other criteria.
  3. Meetups are volunteer-run with volunteer speakers. In cases where a modest attendance fee might be necessary, this fee should only cover the costs of the meetup and shouldn’t be used to pay speakers or organizers.
  4. Meetup groups allow events to be organized by any reliable/trusted member of the community.
  5. Meetups are welcoming places where everyone works to foster an accepting environment which is free of discrimination, incitement to violence, promotion of hate, and general jerk-like behavior.

So far the good faith rules…
