I just wanted to try to make a Lochland calendar. The only events that stuck out to me for March were the AC and birthdays. There are real life Holidays of course, but I didn't want to clutter it with non-site related things. Anyway, its a thing, I didn't have a reason, but I felt like it.

March




Wick: Birthday reminder three days prior.

I like this idea a lot! smile.gif

When there are on-site events or temp forums you could also list them as well!

As one of the players who often forgets their character's birthday or age, I think this is a great idea. Plus, I think it prompts more writing as birthday's make for great excuses for a thread.

Were you thinking of different symbols for the different sorts of noted on the calendar? ...like the balloons for B-days, and another symbol for a big board wide thread? Having visual queues might be good.

Now if you could just set a reminder to pop up a couple days ahead to remind me my character's birthday is coming, that's be the bee's knees.

Over all, good idea. I'm all for it.

The idea was to put in more events, yes. I can only have 50 items per set on Polyvore, the base calendar without information would be 3 or 4, and with symbols on the calendar and a symbol key to the side, and then the actual events... it would allow for about 20 events or so, which seems like it won't be a problem. Our biggest birthday month is actually presently March, so anything else would have less, and even March is fine. Then the handful of anything else we might like a reminder or just bookmark for would be easy. If not, I can fix that anyway.

Weird numbers and such aside, summary. I would like to put in more things. If anyone has a suggestion, or if I get dates for site events, I can put them in and edit this. I believe the image here will change along with that, if not I can just fix the link. If someone, or just Wick, wants a reminder about birthdays, I can do that, it would take less than a minute, so sure. Its just an unofficial side project, but that also leaves it open to more input from the people who like it.

I'm with Wick. I'm really prone to forgetting my character's birthdays, so having them listed somewhere or a pop-up on the day would be awesome.

Though, I know Nate's birthday he's turning 37. He wishes he was turning 29. ;)

It's be really nice for site events, too. It'd make it so much easier to work out in-character timelines.

Okie. I made a note from what you said, as far as Wick and Tea wanting birthday reminders. I'll put them in my personal files for when I actually update the ages so I know to remind you in advance, or on a day based on what you both said.

And if you guys have any IC events, like something that could be posted in the personal ads, or an open thread or whatever, those would be something I could put on this. Basically anything you'd like represented as part of the timeline. I'm still trying to feel out plans and ideally be able to have things up in advance when I know.
