After the $2 RSVP test Meetup announced, I decided to build a replacement for the React group I co-organize.
If anyone is interested, it's up and running! https://meetingplace.io
At least one Indie Hacker group is already trying it out: https://meetingplace.io/indie-hackers-of-sd
There's a big update coming out this week (including a new homepage, pricing, more group tools, etc) - but I wanted to get the word out in case any other groups were looking for a new home.
Let me know if you have any feedback or advice for me :) The biggest problem I see is overcoming the huge network effect that Meetup has - so any suggestions there are appreciated. Thanks!
