#3592: Dashboard Event Widget: Display 5 meetups instead of 3

In the metropolitan Tokyo area, close to 10 events may be scheduled per
month within the 400km range.
This means that users may not see a local meetup close to their home until
when there are only 2 other events within the 400km range, even if the
organizer schedules it a month ahead of the time.
Depending on the schedule, the timing could be a few weeks before the
local event takes place.
I'd say it's unlikely users go to an event over 100 km away because they
can find a closer event (unless it's a large one with lots of speakers or
WordCamp). A 400km radius covers about a third of the country.
== Ideal Solution for Our Case ==
Just writing this out, even though I understand our situation is an edge
Personally, I feel the right mix to be the following for the case of
cities near Tokyo.
* 1 upcoming WordCamp within the country (Once a WC is scheduled it stays
until it's over)
* 5 meetups within a 100km radius
But for other cities in Japan, a 200km radius may be more reasonable.
== Compromised Solution ==
If tweaking the radius range (or making exceptions) per city/country is
not feasible, I'd like to see more upcoming events in the widget. This
change provides 1) an incentive for organizers to schedule their events
ahead of the time 2) a chance for attendees to find out their nearby
**How about showing 5 events instead of 3 when they exist?** This change
will not affect areas will less frequent meetups but will help those with
several nearby meetups.
Keeping the 400km radius isn't ideal for my location, but I can live with
it as long as more meetups are shown.
