We’ve been getting reports of people creating events and then abandoning them. If you create and event, and don’t attend it, it’s not only unfair to the attendees, it’s also unfair to other people that may wish to use the Zone.
In many ways, it’s actually worse than inviting all your friends over for a party and then not bothering to show up. At least if you do this in real life, your guests can raid your refrigerator.
In the Old There, Customer Support could help enforce this since we had more C/S.
As you know, we don’t have as much C/S coverage as we did before, but this is still an offense. Not to mention just plain rude. Doing it for a 4 or 8 hour event is beyond rude.
Yes, it’s an offense to reserve an zone for an event, and then either not show, or show up and then abandon the event.
SamSyn is going to work on an automated way to enforce this, but in the meantime, please don’t do it. If you feel like someone has abandoned an event you can report it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please remember to include photos or video showing the event has been abandoned.
(We have records of who was in the zone when, so we can verify any claims of abandonment).
Thanks for reading.
P.S. Clarification: If you own the Zone, then if you want to schedule 8 hour events and never come (or come, and leave), then have fun. It’s your Zone so you can do what you want with it.
