Nika Talaj Posted January 4, 2020 Share Posted January 4, 2020 There have been a few attempts to put together a calendar of Belli events. @Kitten Kaos started one, it seems to be gone now. The Bellisserian had an area for events, now gone. The Pirate DJs calendar is gone. One problem seems to be that, in order to be sure a calendar doesn't get cluttered, calendars are generally maintained by a single person. When that person gets busy in RL, the calendar disappears. Bellisseria on Ice wraps up today with DJ sets from10AM to 4, SLT. Their Google calendar has been really helpful. https://sites.google.com/view/bellisseria-on-ice/event-calender/event-calender?authuser=0 Google calendars in general are great tools, but they're easier to maintain for a short event like this one. When I was active in Caledon, their calendar was maintained by a few people. Some posted for specific interest groups (like the Oxbridge school), some not. But Caledon is both orders of magnitude smaller and much more close-knit than far-flung Bellisseria. While writing this message, I've been mulling over how managing a Belli calendar could work: > Create an avatar called BellisseriaEvents. The avatar would be managed by a group of avatars (yes, LL would have to approve that) whose typists would also be also approved to update one or more Belli Google calendars; the email account for this avatar would also be shared. Events would be submitted to this avatar via full perm notecard. Anyone in the group of maintainers could decide to post or ignore an event. If your event is not posted, the notecard should be returned with a brief reason for denial. No appeals - people need to regard listing in the calendar as a favor done by volunteers, not as a right. At times, events might not be posted because maintainers are all busy. Life happens. There should be a policy, a simple bulleted list, of types of events that will and won't be accepted for the calendar. E.G. No personal celebrations, eg. birthdays, partnerings, remembrances, etc.. It would be great if this policy were short enough to be part of the event submittal form. Anyone who importunes or otherwise harasses BellisseriaEvents, or any of the calendar maintainers, will be blocked by BellisseriaEvents, and thus have no way to submit calendar requests.
