I know the host does a write up. Most of my attendees do write a recap of the MeetUp but not sure if that is mandetory. I just send the entire a list of all who showed up.

My understanding has always been that the host writes it up and gets extra points. Others get points for showing up based on an attendance report from the host. Obviously, if they want to do a write-up they also get points for a post.

Good for you for hosting an event.  It looks as if fairly laid back and lenient AR Ambassador and MeetUp coordinator Bob Crane has come through with an answer to your question.   

Now let's see what you can find from column A or B for an idea for tomorrow's architectural question.

I hope you got your answer. It seems that the host must post location and time before hand and afterwards as well and turn in a list of the attendees.  The attendees should post as well.

I believe that is "old school" and does not apply these days. I've hosted many. I just write a post as the host and send the names of those who attended to the powers that be at AR to serve up dem points! 

There are no meetup police that I know of.  Heck, if someone shows up ... that is enough for me.  If they want to write a post ... that is bonus material without points.
