I am a pretty seasoned IF flyer (despite my only 19,000XP) and have been playing for upwards of 2 years or so. I have always thought it would be cool to have more events/meet ups and it would be awesome if there was a notification you could get on the app that notifies you when there is a meet up. Just a thought.
If you want to start a meet up/event, post a topic in the events category. To be notified for an event, you’d need to sign up to attend. Note: This is not currently a feature, just a thought.
