I have found someone and we are getting along very well. I am pleased I heard about your Site from a friend as I consider it to be a good genuine site for finding someone compatible. Many thanks

What is the problem? Maybe is if you aren't sure you may have something more important but you would like to go if available. If I am leading the walk I always ask the night before for maybes to change their status to yes or no. The only reason for the no option is for people who have saved a maybe. If you definitely aren't going there is no need to do anything although some do.

It's always worked perfectly well. An indication to organisers that is clarified before the event.

Many invitations are posted months in advance, for instance Christmas 2017, I'm not 100% sure what I'm doing but I'm a positive maybe for Lisbon.

The other useful thing is that if you are interested in a trip, but can't commit, if you put yourself down as a maybe you get updates on the event to your inbox.

Ta for the comments. LW's re asking people to clarify and the updates mentioned by Womble are things I hadn't thought of. If someone hasn't changed their intentions, I guess I wouldn't wait for them beyond a few minutes (10 min) on the day.

Mitch: not seeking to change anything, just curious as to how folks use the option and interpret it

My invites are always mid week, so not likely to be overwhelmed by numbers

I would say the only reason for a no option is actually for people who have changed their mind, for whatever reason and can no longer be a definite. Still getting updates to your inbox as Womble says is a valid and useful thing I agree and understand, great point Not withstanding the maybe option is useless. I had maybes going,some not, definites who no showed so basically it was a free for all and just glad I lost none of the flock, more luck than judgement. In an ideal world it would be 'an indication to organisers that is clarified before the event', but unfortunately it's not an ideal world and fixing things before they're totally broken could be the difference of survival or not.
