Calendar for groups by seriousmadness Calendar for groups by seriousmadness
a feature which I think might be handy to be implemented in the dA groups pages.

The "Add event" option should only be available for the group administrators.
Also the date with the darker background is the current date, the one with the light highlight are dates with an upcoming event.

That sounds like a good idea, especially for contests and for groups centered around TV shows, for episode dates. Great job c:

HOLY SHIT YES!!!

I had the same idea when the groups first came out. I asked them if they could do something and they didn't even give me a second thought. They just told me to use Google clangers or something that only I can see but no one else. It really pissed me off when they just blew me off like that. This is just prefect and better then what I had in mind when I was trying to make a model so that I can show the admins.

Groups have a few unneeded stuff on there but no calender? I mean from all the groups I come across a calendar would have been one of the first things I would have added if I was making a group. We (meaning group owners) are always running events and journals don't seem to cut it sometimes. I always get people coming by the group page asking me: "where is the journal that had the info on so and so date. I cant remember when it ends". And the count down in NO HELP when you are running more then one thing. They told me just to use the freak count down but that is just a loud of unhelpful bull.

So again thank you for making a model of this because god knows I was way to lazy to come up with anything. I really do hope that they take this into thought then do it because I have never needed this more then any other Ap they provide to your groups. I would gladly give away half of the Ap's they give you in groups just for a calender Ap |:

I think this is quite a good idea, I have a few questions though, about how you imagined it would happen:

:pointr: Would it notify the members of upcoming events? What would these messages look like?

:pointr: Why is the 'Add event' only a comment box? Shouldn't there be more options like "Title", "Description" (which I guess would equal the comment box you made), "Date"?

:pointr: Would there be an option to make the event weekly or monthly for example? That would be very handy for regular events, like monthly contests or weekly blogs, etc. (If so then this option should be added to the "Add event" thing as well of course:D)

:pointr: Could one also make a calendar in Admin Area for only the admins to see? So that all admins know when to do what and everything...

Either way, I support this one :+fav: You could make a thread about this in the suggestions forum? :D

you've got some valid points there, but so far this was intended as something how it could look like on the main page. so still a concept ;)
