The meetup.com site for the Melbourne Steemit meetups expires today and I won't be renewing it. Despite it having 74 members I don't think that it was successful in recruiting new people and it cost quite a lot (about $120 for 6 months).
As the price of Steem has dropped and the weather got colder the attendance at our meetups dropped. Early in the year we had some great meetups (Jan,Feb) but of recent I have noticed many people have stopped posting on the site (myself included for the last few months) and we weren't getting anyone coming along to meetups.
If we get Steemit visitors to Melbourne I will still try to organise dinners/drinks (it was great to meet @holoz0r and @positiveninja2 when each visited). As for general meetups - if there is renewed enthusiasm later in the year I might try again but for now they are on hold.
