Sticky threads do allow those who browse to notice the event/events But cause the organiser duplicate work, and if one gets missed off the list, or no info is popped up (duplicate work and all that).

Similarly an announcement within the “events” main forum would cause extra work And get cluttered with all of the events if one per event was used.


Perhaps A single announcement , with the link direct to the calendar at the top of the Events forums though, may serve to point folk to there Before the threads in the forum / child forums.

Something along the lines of

“What’s on - This months Events Click <here>”

With <here> being the hyperlink to the calendar.

Folks can then still start the “I’m going to “x” on the “Y” who else ?” threads, and the After action reports can still appear as normal, with the larger events still being sticky as now. But we all get a “in our face” reminder to check the calendar for the events. It being a permanent forum announcement at the top of the events and child forums sections.



Personal view only here,
The Stickys work well , the normal threads work well, and the announcement about the BKV location change works very well (thanks on that score, means i can now get to a BKV, as its localish to me).
The only thing that’s missing is some way to direct those folk that browse the forums threads , below the main logo and links
Cracking idea I'll get onto it!

as you refer to what other members think and blabber that out on the forum

i am well in a position to refer back to your statement..

I will promote to get you banned from the forum
Why would you want to do that?
Just because another member speaks his mind and you do not like what he has said, thats a bit childish in my opinion.

There is a new stickied thread for the August event.

This has now decended into pointless arguement so will be closed.

At the end of the day this wasn't a VOC or Volvo forums event, it was a "Cheshire Auto Promotions Car Show" and Doug a non forum user spotted it and arranged a club stand. I say well done him for getting a good turn out.

Unfortunately Cheshire Auto Promotions didn't promote it here and it only had a passing mention on the calender. Let's leave it at that and promote and arrange an even better turn out in August.
