(http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Unity_Games/calendar)? If so, there were
several representatives from other groups that are not on the calendar.
Probably 15 different game groups were represented at UG2.
If this is the case, we should only be listing open groups (which is the
case now) to the semi-public UG calendar _or_ files section. Many of the
groups represented by people on this list are closed or semi-private and the
UG list does not attempt change this. I continue to stress that the UG list
is a meeting point and a resource for local gamers - not an umbrella
organization or supergroup of groups for the region. We do not want the
contact person of such groups to receive emails from people wanting to come
to the session - it's not easy having to say no so lets avoid that.
If you are simply talking about a record of groups that had representation
at UG2, that's fine. Just be sure that it is always clear when a group is
Having said that, I've received a few emails today from people wanting to go
to the South Shore Gamers (which is now open to the UG list) - I'll be
contacting you soon via email and we look forward to seeing you on Saturday

I was more referring to the back of the program flyer. This was in
response to Mark Towler's comment.
In any case, I echo Dave's comments -- UG doesn't seek to change the
composition of groups or force anyone with a "closed" group to take on
anyone they don't invite, for the reasons he states.
My "calendar" only listed the names and acronyms of the groups, as
well as where they meet; I meant it to be informational only. I will
be happy to keep it up to date.
