I have become a member of Meetup, but I am not sure (after reading the FAQs and other guidelines) if I have to pay a monthly fee if I set up an organization to schedule meetings (e.g. for local figure skating fans). They sounded vague, like they could charge fees anytime. There was something about the organizer (which would be me) charging fees to the attendees. Has anyone used Meetup, and how successful was it? Did you have to pay any kind of fees? I need to know for some of other interests too. How good are they at answering queries if you get stuck? If you have any information to share, it will be appreciated. Somehow I feel that I get my questions answered here faster than their website.
