The point of this forum is to enjoy reading about events that you might want to attend in the near future.
Impressive
The point is to create a national event archive that everyone can enjoy for the upcoming year ! _smile.gif
Perhaps even global. biggrin.gif

And with a topic title like Stick a D*ck in your ear and F*ck What you heard!, I'm sure it'll be pretty easy for people to search for this list of national events for the next year, too!
Impressive
^ i thought it would be attention grabbing for not being closed.... perhaps if you'd like to.... you could change it to:
"Createblog National Event Database"
only if you feel it's necessary of course.

Change the topic title, or this topic is getting closed.
rnicron

thanks

Topic title changed to: Createblog National Event/News Database

rolleyes.gif (it's a more appropriate title)

I'll move this to Feedback since it's an idea for cB in general.

As far my opinion, it's not a bad idea but I'm not sure if it is something that will see a lot of activity. Look at the News Forum, for example. Unless you're a celebrity, you have a third nipple or other such oddities chances are your topic won't see much in the way of responses.
rnicron
this topic will only be good for travelers, or the 2 whole people that live by you.
rnicron
which my post pretty much implies that it's not necessary.

Although, it's true that this probably won't go anywhere.

I prefer to treat Rico the same way I'd treat anyone who brings up these types of topics. Allow them to be heard, let them respond back and then move things over.
rnicron
rico probably won't be back.
superstitious
