I’d like to be able to link individual posts (for granularity/ relevance, but maybe threads/topics would be OK ) in talk to events (and maybe groups and vice-versa)…
So as a Community lead or host lead I could mention an upcoming (or past) party in a post and it would appear (maybe just a subject heading?) under a particular party.
As a Restarter or Host I could say “I’m bringing” or “who could bring” a tool or spare, or generally talk about the party (from transport, about the venue (how accessible? what facilities/equipment do they have?) to after-party destinations?)
So at the moment each event has the Headings: Event Details, Description and Attendance) we would add something like"Related Discussion" (and maybe a “talk about this” button/ link).
In the future: attendees, could say I’m bringing/ brought item X, so people could do research and suggest “homework”.
This would give functionality currently only available in Meetup or Facebook to “directly”/ “obviously” discuss the event (and hopefully draw people onto the platform…) …also in the short term it lets us add information (in a freeform way, which could eventually be more structured).
