Straight out with it; I'd like to see a forum, or calendar or something, where people can post events they're going to.

I know there's tons of awesome events throughout the year; weekenders, milsim, special game days etc. And I love them, when I can get to them, but never know anyone and find it hard to track them down; it seems whatever site I look up, they advertise very little, so I rely on forum discussion.

If we had a thread-per-event sort of setup, it'd also allow people to discuss lift sharing, which would be greatly helpful; I don't drive, and many younger members don't either (just a guess), but I would be willing to pay for my share of petrol and a little bit extra for the inconvinience of picking me up, or meeting me somewhere kinda thing. Even if it was just meeting someone at a trainstation near to the site and they came fifteen minutes from wherever to get me, it'd help a lot.

The idea is by no means perfect, so people, please feel free to comment or just plain slaughter what I've put :) But I just thought it might be something to think about :)

I like this idea, maybe, don't just have it for events- put it on for game days too, so people can see if others are playing at their regular sites etc too.
good idea

We already have a calendar but no one uses it:

A forum may work better then.

It seems to be one of those features like Chat.

Brilliant idea, but neglected because people (especially me) tend to skim read the list of forums; infact I only just discovered that chat exists :/

I can see your point but I can see it sat as a forum with not much happening in it apart from people saying they're going airsoft this weekend at such and such skirmish site which everyone already knew about.

Also pretty hard for us to compete with something like this:

I've had an idea-
How about under where it says: guns owned and gear/ camo under our profile on our posts, we could have a 'next skirmish' where people could put places and dates.
If people don't want to use it, they won't have to.
As I say though. Just and idea
