What is a mixer meeting?
It is a Zoom meeting where you can socialize with others. Breakout rooms are used so conversations can be held in small groups.
How long until the Zoom meetings will be starting?
We are hoping to start sometime in the coming months once we have the needed number of people signed up. Please add your email to the list to speed up the start of this fantastic event.
How much will this cost?
We are planning on the cost of attending to be $6 (USD) per month once the meetings start.
If you have 150 people on the call how will people have a chance to talk?
We will use the break out rooms feature so if 150 people join we will create
50 breakout rooms with 3 people in each breakout room. We'll give people 5 to 15 minutes to chat
until we switch who is in each breakout room.
So you aren't going to present anything? What are we supposed to talk about in these breakout rooms?
Other than maybe some occiasonal fun trivia polls and interesting factoids, no the host won't be really presenting information.
The goal of this is to allow you to direct the discussion and talk about what interests you.
What are the "rules" on the mixers?

Can I stay anonymous on the mixers?
You can decide whether to share just your first name or to share your last name and contact info also with the other participants that you talk to. In order to deter abuse, VideoSocialize, who is hosting the mixers, will know those who are attending.
Is this some kind of dating site?

We will do our best to support all countries and as many currencies for payment as possible. However note that one currently cannot use Zoom from these countries: Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, Syria, and Ukraine (Crimea).
