We recently updated the frontpage to show upcoming meetups in the community section. This is another small piecewise update towards a fully featured frontpage meetup section.
If you're not logged in, it shows upcoming events, sorted by karma.
If you're logged in, you now have the option of updating your account settings to have a location. If you've done so, the meetups/events on the frontpage will instead be "closest upcoming events."
If you've set your location, this will also affect which events listed on the community page.
Some obvious things to do which we haven't done yet:
- make so if you click "share location" on your browser, this populates your account's location (right now if you click share location on the community page, this won't actually update your frontpage experience)
- make a more obvious way to update your account setting from the frontpage meetup section (right now there's just a link to the community page).
One additional update was make "lesswrong.com/meetups" also go to the community page, which this is where some older links were directed to.
