Where have I been? August 15, 2013 5:22 PM   Subscribe

A small feature request for IRL: a (private if necessary) list of meetups you have marked as having attended.

I've often commented in meetup threads I never attended and almost definitely attended meetups that I only clicked "attending" on and never commented in. In fact I'm not sure if we even have a way of finding out if the latter scenario ever happened without bugging the mods.

I know a lot of people have legit privacy concerns, so it doesn't necessarily have to be a publicly-accessible list. It can just be visible to the user themselves. Or maybe you could choose if the list is accessible to everyone, logged-in users only, or totally private.

I think it would be pretty cool to check out someone's profile after a meetup and be all "hey you were at that thing I was at! We've met before!"

You're in luck! We already built that, it's in the My IRL tab on the front page of the site. On my own tab, I see two upcoming meetups I was interested in and all the past ones I followed.

I didn't even know we had this feature that I also always wanted until pb mentioned it's always been there, so yay!

pb is now fulfilling feature requests before we ask for them!

Wow, I've attended 17 meetups in the past ~3 years (since IRL)? I'd have guessed half as many.

It doesn't list all of them! Mine only goes back to October of 2012 or so.

If pb could really time travel, he'd update my My IRL to include all the meetups I went to, but got too drunk to remember attending.

Up next, Counterfactual Subjunctive MyIRL: meetups you didn't attend but should have, would have, or could have.

We'll take a look at that. We probably need to add a system for paging back. We don't have that yet.

It lists meetups you marked "Maybe" as far as I can tell. Maybe that's why?

Man, I maybe'd and missed some cool meetups. But at least the meetups I made it to outnumber those. :-)

Okay, sure, very nice and all. But now I need a listing of the IRL events I should have gone to if I weren't such a hermit and lazy ass. There should be check-boxes to turn on/off "head-shaking reproach" and "moderate taunting" list modes.

He can only hope that the next pony...will be the pony home.

That's true, but I skipped those as I counted.

the young rope-rider, I just added simple paging to the bottom of the page. So if you have more than 50 events in My IRL you can go back and forth to see them all.

Thank you pb!
