    What an effective way to sneer at anyone who doesn't live in London. Well done MSE.

    whether you use the site on a desktop, a tablet or a mobile

    You say this but in the article you specify that you must use the site using a smartphone, again very restrictive

    Is this the meeting of the 9th May, postponed for a week (lack of volunteers? insufficient preparation time?) or a second meeting?

    Still doesn't say what time it is to be (they must think MSE site users have unlimited free time).

    Has this been postponed from the 9th of May then? I would be interested if it is the evening of 9th May, but cannot make 16th.

    No it doesn't. VT82 has clearly read the ad correctly - it says that you must OWN a smartphone that you use to access the internet.

    Seems some people are unclear on the point/nature of a focus group, and also on the meaning of the word "volunteers" - I for one think this is a great idea for MSE to move forward. Makes a nice change for a FREE to use site to actually be asking its users for input in this way too.

    Thank you for highlighting my error

    It is still restrictive in as much that ownership of a smartphone for accessing the internet is required.

    Nowhere, but reimbursement of travel costs to the tune of 50 excludes those living in much of the country who are keen to save money not spend it.

    Could be good to do a web or telephone-based meeting in future. I'm sure MSE will get lots of volunteers, but could get even more if it wasn't limited to people living in/able to get to certain parts of the country. People are probably more able to contribute if they don't have to spend time and money travelling. I know face to face is better for certain types of feedback, but a lot can be acheived without having people there in the flesh too.
