Hi, I'm Martina, one of the two Community Managers at Couchsurfing along with Sam. Nice to meet you all!


Currently, we receive valuable feedback from the beta panel participants on the new Events features - thanks beta people! :)
As we are only just getting started with the Beta Group, we are also still learning from our testing activities and will be improving the beta testing processes themselves in the upcoming months.
Here is the link to a recent post that co-staff Sam wrote about the Beta Group. It should give everyone an idea of where we stand with the beta testing for now:

Happy Surfing!

I'm so excited to roll out events! This coming week we're working on making it look beautiful and really intuitive. We're also building a tutorial that will fire the first time you use Events or if you have an active Activity or Meeting - everyone will get step-by-step training on the new system which is a first for Couchsurfing.

So yes, this rollout will be a lot better than the Places rollout. A huge part of that is that we're not removing Activities or Meetings until at least a few weeks after the Events launch is settled and well-adopted, and we're not migrating anyone's existing data into the new feature.

Thanks for your patience and support! We're continually improving these processes and SO excited to share the new stuff with everyone. :-) <3
