Site Update – New Requirements for Calendar Entries – Effective July 2013
It takes a lot of time to add an individual group’s events to the calendar, time that I need to dedicate elsewhere. So here’s the situation, effective July 2013 for existing groups and effective immediately for groups who aren’t already listed on the site:
- If your group has an iCal feed – be it through Meetup or otherwise – then I probably have you on the calendar and automatically populating. If I don’t have your iCal feed, please email me at admin at this domain and I’ll get you on the calendar.
- If you do not have an iCal feed and meet at a consistent pattern (for example – 1st Tuesday of the month), then I’ll set up a recurring event with a link to your group’s site for more details.
- If you need to link to a specific site for registration (such as Eventbrite) for each event, you will need to designate someone in your group to maintain each entry.
- If you do not meet at a consistent pattern and cannot be setup as a recurring event, then you will need to designate someone in your group to add your events to the calendar.
While I enjoy providing this site as a community resource, it has become a bit more time consuming for just 1 person to manage, and as such, I need to set these guidelines in place.
If you have any feedback on this, please email me at admin at this domain and I will respond. As many people can tell you, I do read your emails and take your feedback into consideration. I’ve acted on a lot of the feedback that has come in. And I will continue to do what I can to support the tech community here! As always, thank you for your support!
