• Creating an Event

Event: The event title. No need for the date or location in here as that will be asked for separately.
Extra details box: Where you would normally write a post, add any extra details in here.
Venue, Address, Postcode: Self-explanatory, enter this information here and the map will find the location.
Start/End Time: Clicking this box will open a small calendar, choose the date. Next box for the meet time (or depart time) and AM/PM - finally set the number of hours you'd expect the event to last.
Timezone: If the event is in the UK, leave this setting alone.
Link: This is optional. Use this to add a link (URL) to extra information should you require it.
Save Event: This button does what it says.

Options: (these are normally left alone)
Recur This Event Every: Leave this setting alone and the box unchecked if the event occurs once.
Enable RSVP System: This is to allow other members to add their RSVP as Yes, No, Maybe. This setting is to be left alone and is checked by default.
Create Event Thread: Leave this setting alone. This is checked by default and creates the Events thread for you.

The calendar will automatically generate a thread in the Events forum and vice versa.

The Events System includes a calendar, Google mapping and an RSVP system to allow attendees to say Yes, Maybe, or No.

User comments on the RSVP are shown in an overlay on-mouseover.
(Hovering over the username reveals the comments.)

• Editing or Cancelling an Event

You may edit or cancel your own event, or please ask a member of Staff to help out.
In the event screen, you'll see an edit link.

You can change any aspects of the event or even delete it from the calendar entirely.

Please note
Deletions remove the event from the calendar completely.
It also locks and updates the thread with a notice to alert everyone following or "watching" the event.
