Calendar page

Post by michael_churchill » 20 Apr 2016, 10:52

I would suggest having a calendar page (perhaps in the "Replacement Bus Service" announcements section), which collects in one place the dates of all the regular forum-related events like the Random 15 championship, Zone 1 Challenge day and the Tube Olympics.

Does anyone feel like getting all the dates together and putting something together then? I can create the topic for it once that's done.

If you wish to show who to contact with regards to each event (i.e. the organiser)- well for the aforementioned events that would be me.
This is a Central line train to "Woodford via Hainault"- it always is, except when you actually want one!

If you give me a couple of weeks, I could look to install a proper calendar module but I'm currently reconstructing my PC after it's hard disk died - hooray for cloud backups.

Only problem is that the backups were done when I lived in a fibre broadband area - backups are now being downloaded at less than 2mb/s - boo BT openreach.
Tube Forum administrator. I look after the database to keep this place running smoothly.

At least you remember to back it up; the same happened to my laptop, but I didn't back anything up onto the cloud, so lost everything. Including Tube Challenge routes :cry:

I did eventually remember them, and wrote them all down. So I do have them!
