Coming Events

Dear All

 

I suspect we are still missing a lot of coming events. I've been putting my efforts in to the Rides List photos and confess I've been neglecting the Facebook Poster's Group. I took a look yesterday and added numerous events from the Facebook group that haven't made it across :(

 

Initially there were offers of help, but these seem to have dropped off. There is no need to volunteer to do this, but if you do have access to Facebook the group is at 

 

https://www.facebook.com/groups/516867281798083/

 

It takes a few seconds to either create a coming event in the relevant forum here or add the poster to an existing event and helps your like count :)

 

Any help gratefully received :)

 

All the best

Thanks Bill and to everyone that posts up in the coming events. I don't do Facebook so any info is very welcome.

I'm not a Facebook expert.  Ian,  can you try clicking on that link and let me know what happens please?

Hi Bill

 

I clicked onto the link..... it tells me to sign in to Facebook. I have no desire to have a facebook account so the link is defunct for me.

No probs, fully understand - I just didn't know if you needed to be a member to see the group.

I also tried the link with the same result as Ian.

We came dangerously close to losing the Coming Events this year because, whilst everyone agrees that its an invaluable resource, everyone expects someone else to compile the list.

 

It is too much for one person to do, and as a last ditch effort to save the coming events, we decided to go with a community effort. That is EVERYONE inputs the details of the events they know about.

 

Despite my request at the top of this topic, there is still a backlog of posters on Facebook that haven't been transferred as coming events. I have again done them.

 

It is simple to do - if you are on Facebook - and takes a very short while to create a coming event topic on here.

 

Apologies for being blunt but I'm fed up with nagging about this. If you can't be bothered to help, please don't moan when we have no coming events section on the forum :(

The position is now this......

 

We have events on the Facebook group that aren't being copied over to the forum. I will do what I can when I can, but I cannot say that the Forum Coming Events will have every event listed on Facebook. There has been very little interest in helping, indeed there are forum members sharing details of events on the Facebook group but not here.

 

All I can suggest is that if you are looking for events is that you also check the Facebook group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/516867281798083/

 

If you aren't on Facebook, I apologise, I have no control over where our members choose to share the information :(

It seems that you no longer need to be a member of Facebook to view that group page.

Thank you for that. It means that ANY forum member can now copy events from the group to the forum. No excuses now :)
