A builder is the one who has published or organised a event. Explorer can be the one looking for new communities to join or the one who has is a approved member of a community and is attending or have attended the event, the right of approval lies with event community builder.
Event based community is avenue to Network, Make new friends, Know each other, Share knowledge. The Community is designed to function before, during and after the events so you can keep the community alive even after the event.
For limited period BME users can take benefit of creating communities for free and there is no limit to number of communities created by a user / builder.
An Explorer can be part of the community via community lounge. Once you are part of Community lounge, you can share private messages with other community members. To share private messages in Community Lounge. Go to Compose your ticker and select Lounge - "Event Name" from the drop down. That message will be displayed to other approved members of the community only. Only Approved community members will see the lounge name in the ticker box.
Tickers are the tool you can use to share, discuss and build your community and followings. Ticker box in my profile and ticker feed section can be used for the same. All tickers you write will be displayed on your profile page to other users and on your city and worldwide buzz pages.
Public Community - Event community will be displayed across the city pages and allows users to search your event. You can promote your event using buzztags and social feature.
Private Community - Event community will be private, will not be visible on city pages. This community is suitable for those events which you want to keep private for colleagues, friends or family. A private page will be generated. You can find the link on your dashboard.
Please note there is no restriction in type of events you place under public or private category.
Buzz tag is any text preceded by a "#" sign in the ticker. Example #BME2014. With every new community, the builder will be allotted a unique buzz tag, which can used by the explorers and community members to talk and discuss about their community. This buzz tag can be used to promote your event in city and worldwide buzz pages. Explorers can also write their own buzz tags to share about their own life, thoughts or current events.
You can change your name, about me and make the url personalised (if available) in dashboard edit profile section. Your picture is linked to your facebook profile picture, any changes in your facebook profile picture will lead to a change in your BME profile pic.
