The International Open Source Hydrogen On Demand Builders Network.
We have sent out messages before about how we have duplicate Geo located groups and how some of them are totally inactive. After analyzing the issues we realized that the problem exists in the fact that most Geo located groups cover large areas, Most groups cover an entire state or country. Given that most people don't travel entire state or country distances on a regular basis and most peoples outer limit would be about 100 miles or 160/km as something they would do on a monthly basis we have decided to end all Geo located groups in favor of MeetUp Groups. MeetUp groups pull from local communities and have a limited radius footprint. So all Geo located group leaders please make note that if you want to have a group it will have to be run through the MeetUp system. You can get started by visiting http://hydrogen-on-demand.com or http://www.meetup.com/Hydrogen-On-Demand/ DO NOT GO STRAIGHT TO MEETUP.COM as it will not show up within the broader community system NOTE! Once you have created your MeetUp Group for your area you can come back to HODINFO and create a specific group to target that meetup group and help it gain traction within the community and rank within search engines. By this we mean you can place the URL of your MeetUp Group as the official address of your group here on HODINFO. The groups will have to have the same name and be targeted in this manner in order for us to allow it to be added to the system. All new groups will have to be approved from this point forward. Here is an example of a meetup group that we just set up for the Treasure Coast of Florida. http://hodinfo.com/group/treasure-coast-hydrogen-on-demand#axzz28ty... Please set up your group in a similar manner. We know this is a big change and some members might not like this but if we are to truly be an active community of HOD builders then we need to have a viable infrastructure that underpins the functions of the community.
