We are now using a calendar to display events. This makes it easier to keep track of events. The event calendar can only be edited by staff members. This means that if you want to have an event added to the calendar (i.e a Rift) you will have to inform a staff member and he will add it for you to the calendar.
So if you want to create a event just do the following:
1. Create a post in the Events/Contests section with a poll for the date on which the event takes place (can be skipped if you already have a set time) 2. Once the voting is done simply reply to your thread with the request to add it to the calendar.
Thats it. A staff member will then close the old post and open a calendar event as soon as he has time.
We are just testing this for now. If it does turn out to be a bad idea or more of a hassle than its worth we will remove the calendar again.
