[SUGGESTION] Idea: xonotic event calendar

#1
I think we should have an event calendar for things like:

- map testing
- balance testing
- tournament matches
- PR days (make announcements)
- xonotic 101/tutorial sessions
- IRC get-togethers (or something like that)

Being that I wanted to be involved in "Community Management," I'd volunteer to keep such an event calendar up to date (people could PM me to add events, or maybe I just maintain the password and deal it out to those in need?). What we would need is a plugin or account to post the calendar, then have it listed on this site somewhere easily found.

Thoughts?

Background: this is coming about because I'm trying to get people to come test out Fruitie's new balance stuff at a certain time, but I really have no good way of making people aware of it (forum post would just get buried).

Hmm, I agree with this...

There should be something like that on the main page, at least until we have integrated tourney/ladder etc systems in the main page (and maybe still show all these dates in the calendar?)

We should probably still show those tourneys on the calendar - unless the ladder has a publication (RSS) system like most event calendars do.

So -z-, how 'bout it? We'd need to talk about a calendar plugin for WP and an e-mail account (events@xonotic.org?). There is no way I can keep up w/ all the posts here as a source for events.

What about making the calender available in game somehow to improve cooperation in the community? Steam has always had a stream of marketing about some other games that someone wants you to buy, thinly disguised as news. What about having a genuine community news stream available when the game starts up? An item like joining a tournament or a testing session for new physics/gameplay could then have a link in it to connect to the server that its running on.

Roanoke - updated my post with logical nav instructions. I don't know what's up with the link - works for me!

Looks as though the grid is a bit skewed; the gridlines for the day doesn't match up vertically with the dates below it.

Just started working.
Yes, the styling and markup are off.

Sounds like a good idea, but for this to work needs to be some kind of community news page/site where the majority of players could be linked/sent too, would need people to help keep the calender upto date and report when tournament's etc are happening.

I'm volunteering to do some of that stuff. BUT I think we need a working calendar first. Right now the styling is off and we don't have any integration other than the link provided. Ideally we'd want a quick summary of the upcoming events in a widget (the main site is wordpress after all) on the right or left sidebar.

Ideally this would work in the forum system. I will see what I can do and get back to you. At worst, we can do a Google calendar.
