I'll have to set aside some time to getting it back, it will not be automatic so I'll be doing it show by show.

 

Like Wikipedia, why not give all members the ability to add "new show events" to the calendar? Then anyone with info can input it directly, or correct mistaken entries, instead of having to bother Scott all the time. Just a thought.

I was going to even suggest that for the old site to take the load off Scott. Maybe just a set group of people would have access to avoid the obvious netharious interwebnet spamming and such. Keep the reminders open for entries, and said individuals can post update place markers.

We will see how it works, a couple have offered to help post to the calendar be we haven't decided what to do at this point yet. Most likely I will need some backup. :)

Scott, do you think that Calendar will be able to send out advanced reminders?

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

I see the calendar fine, though not a lot of content! !rolling

(And the emoticons have been augmented since I last looked.) :righton: 

 

A link on the discussion page would be very welcome, unless the tab is restored....

There is no way around it. You can't import or export a vB calendar.

Yes, I was using three days because that was the max, but I would prefer at least 10 ten days.

I put a test on the Calendar for today and next week Tuesday, the one for today shows up on the forums page on the right hand side.

I can't see a way to subscribe to an individual show and get a reminder, that doesn't mean it's not there but I don't see it.

I did get a message that "test 2" was added to the calendar. The message notifications are subtle, though. If I"m not looking at the top of the page, I hardly notice they're there. Guess I need to follow it as "instant", instead of "when I'm not on-line".

In the meantime, I went back as far as page 38 of the reminders and made this word file.

Feel free to edit it and then reattach it.

For Scott's sake, I would suggest still posting your additions here as well.

I was able to subscribe to the New TV Reminder Calendar, but so far there doesn't seem to be a way a to subscribe to individual events.

I am not saying that no one visits anymore, but a note every now and then would be nice.

But I get it if you are to busy and everything....

Good visiting with you, armophob. I do check here, just haven't said much.

 

I find your Word list handy, so your work is appreciated. :righton:

 

Of course having calendar format would be a nice touch also.
