  • I am not sure if there is one but I would be interested in hearing your ideas about starting one.
    I live in TROY!

    I live in Glens Falls, but might come down for a meetup. Was thinking of starting something up here? Keep me posted…

    Yeah it’d be cool to meet up and sort of get a little local thing going…there aren’t many web design shops out here I think it’d be cool to have a little community.

    I’ve bought a domain name to make this official: upstatewp.com

    Should we set a date for first meetup? Say Wed., Sept. 7? We will need a place to meet. Anyone have a large space they can volunteer to host at? I’d offer my studio, but don’t know if everybody from Albany area would want to trek all the way up to Glens Falls?

    Cool. I agree that Glens Falls is a bit of a trek…

    Maybe something actually in the city of Albany would be best. There’s an awesome coffee shop on Hudson & Quail that has good Internet (and great coffee). There are a few cafes in Stuyvesant Plaza that would be great for this, too.

    Coffee shop sounds fine to me. Is @overcranked or @growthop still interested I wonder?

    @george, you think I should get some Buddypress running up on the upstatewp.com site? I see that a lot of people use meetup.com, but I’m too cheap. However, should this ever take off we’ll need some sophisticated event managment plugin, which WP seems to be lacking, but I’m sure we can jerry-rig something 😉

    Thanks for finding me on Twitter! I’m in the same building with Damon here in Glens Falls but curious to meet y’all. – Advokate

    ok, I’ve got upstatewp.com up with BP installed. Feel free to join over there and we can continue organizing and discussing in this forum: http://www.upstatewp.com/groups/upstate-wp/forum/topic/first-meetup/. Also, spread the word: upstatewp.com and @upstate_wp on Twitter. Lets get some more people involved!

    I’m in Saratoga Springs. A local WP meetup sounds killer. 🙂

    I tried to sign up at http://www.upstatewp.com/register/ but I just get an “http://www.upstatewp.com/register/” message when I click the Complete Sign Up button. Conflicting plugins?

    @designsimply, I’m sorry you’re having problems registering. I just went through the whole register process and didn’t have any issues. Can you please try again and report back if you’re still having issues? Great to have you on board!!

    Just tried it again and it worked. Magic. 🙂

    @designsimply, probably a caching issue. Glad it worked!
