I found a couple URLs changed already. If/as the data gets stale, it gets less trusted, and therefore less used. That's a big potential problem.

A tool to visit URLs, email the organizer an "anything changed" email once every couple months, and something to validate that the event site is still active would be handy.

I could see this sending notices to an admin to start.

Ideas from August 4th 2015
like using MailChimp reconfirm or validating organizer name changes using the APIs

The Upstate Events list is great. However, I can't tell how to deal with bad data and someone suggested I put it on this issue. The event link for the GSP Developers' Guild should be http://www.meetup.com/Greenville-Spartanburg-Developers-Guild/. While we have a FB page, it is ancillary to our website and meetup. Thanks.

Thanks @joewalling.

@rhynodesigns and I made a validator last month and it is checking for 404 errors and redirects, but it wouldn't pick up on such things.

Dave Brothers is going to update the listing.

This is where we're directing the public to suggest changes. Since a number of us now have accounts I figured to assign this to folks so they are more likely to see any future comments from the public.

The tech meetup list now has fields for homepage vs event calendar/service homepage.

We'll validate against both URLs.
