What I suggest is that a section of the main portal become a billboard for community events ranging from Google+ Hangouts to Chivalry Tournaments. My idea here being that it be more visible and more accessible than a forum topic or subforum. The events would appear listed in descending order based on proximity of the date. (IE, An event on Thursday appearing atop an event on Friday).

The design wouldn't have to be very complex (visually, anyways. Website functionality/ development isn't an area of expertise for me), each event ticket consisting of a name, date (time specified in either EST or GST, depending on consensus of community), game or service, and maybe number of slots available. *If expired events remain, maybe color code Ongoing versus Expired events.

EX:

Google+ SS Hangout!
Created by: Zac Time: 12/02/2013, 800PM EST Place: Google+, Link to be provided on date of.
Expired

Arma II: Operation Arrowhead Insurgency
Created By: Suffocated_Skies Time: 31/09/2013, 700PM EST Place: EZ Company Insurgency II Server, Zargabad
Ongoing



Clicking on the title of the event could bring users to either a forum topic or the profile of the user responsible for the event. Management of the billboard itself (Deleting of events, posting of new events, amending or correcting events / dates / times.) would fall to one or more community moderators or to a current or new community manager, rather than community access.

Thoughts, ideas?

I think this is an awesome idea, it would make organizing events so much easier than relaying wholly on threads, and posts as they tend to get buried over time.

I don't know if this is possible but could we integrate the steam groups even calendar into it?

I like the idea, however don't have time to develop any custom solution right now.

If you guys can find something in one the following (or combination), I'll be happy to implement it. Just look for compatibility with 3.0.8 upwards.

You should be able to do time conversion on your own. It's basic math and google.

So, @Cherry, this isn't useful?
