    Nov 23, 2008, 12:09 PM - Show/Event Schedule Thread? #1

    Would like to see if others would be interested in a thread that has shows and event listings. I know that I always seem to learn about some cool exhibit, some small prop party, or regional con in my area after it's already happened. I had spoken with one of the mods here about it, but the idea kind of got forgotten about as there was a lot of other things going on at the time. I know these often get listed in the sarlac pit, but it's just to hard to dig through the movie review, joker threads, and other announcements to find them.

    Seems to me it could be a simple listing broken out into regional areas. Or maybe the regional areas could just be listed in the thread title. Would just be nice for me to know what's going on around me, who might be attending from the board, whether it's a TDH "official" event, etc.

    Not sure anything would happen with this, that's totally up to the mods. I may even be way off base in even thinking this would be of interest to anyone else but me.

    Jon

    I think this is a great idea. Or possibly a calendar like the 501st? I'm always wondering if people are getting together for prop parties out here but I don't really know anyone so I never hear about them.

    Jon thank you for the initiative!!! I have been thinking the same thing since I've started, i'm a newbie and i dont know all of the ropes yet, and like you said its hard to look for events/expos when i dont even know whats out there or what to look for. I think this is an excellent idea.

    Great Idea! I too find out about stuff once it's too late, maybe not because it's over, but too late to plan to go (asking off, save some $$ etc.)

    A little bump on this to see if there is more interest in the idea. If it's just a small handful of folks it probably doesn't make a lot of sense. If there is significant interest and TDH can't do it I have another idea for making it happen.

    I didn't check if we have access to create events, but there's the default calendar here:

    http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/calendar.php

    If it's useful, then maybe we can add a quick link to it in the navigation bar.

    Great idea CD. Wonder if we could create a calendar sans the bdays to make it easier to view. I think it would be great if people could post events, special exhibits, etc that were of interest to the members here. If people then posted the region we would know where it was located and then maybe we could post links to threads in there (not sure how it works) so that we could see who is attending and whether TDH would have a table or other "sponsorship" there.

    We'll have to wait for a mod to chime in. Not sure if they even want to do something like this. I think it could be very useful, but like most good ideas it means more work.

    If the Mods were to consider such a thing, turning off birthdays in the calendar is a setting in the admin panel.

    Another bump on this just to see if there is anymore than a handful of interested folks.

    Honestly, if it's a matter of turning off birthdays to show events... I'd prefer to keep the birthdays. We're not an organization that plans or attends events together (normally) so it makes more sense to me to use the calendaring system to support showing us our member's birthdays.

    Got it Bob .

    Thought it would be good for folks to be able to learn about and get together at shows. Does not seem to be that must interest anyway (only 7 or 8 people), so guess it's a dead issue.

    Perhaps that's one of the reasons TDH does not normally support or attend events together?
