Please Read Before Using Diary Dates

Here's a quick reminder of how to get the best out of this area of the site, plus a few comments on some new features I hope you’ll find of some use.

Like to add a new event onto the list?

Great, the more people that contribute the better the end result will be. Remember the shows don’t need to be entirely targeted at our favourite VW or even Volkswagen’s in general for that matter. However, let’s try to keep the list to a manageable size as best we can.

Just start a thread and post it as you would in any other section, but please try to follow the established format for the title ensuring you include the event name, the general location and the dates just like the one below:

Ultimate Dubs: Telford, Shropshire: March 13, 2011

Want to promote a meet rather than a specific event?

Once again, that’s no problem. If you want to sound people out or discuss a possible meet, but don’t have a solid date or location, please do this in General Scirocco Chat until such details have been agreed. Then, once things have been firmed up it can then be added into Diary Dates for people to see, but please be sure to stick to the template mentioned above as best you can.

How can you quickly find information on a specific event?

There are several ways you can do this and some work better than others.

Firstly, you can just use the existing Search facility by typing in the name of the show you’re interested in. However, this can often produce multiple results from which you then need to choose.

Secondly, you can Sort the threads using the bars at the bottom of the Diary Dates page. If you select Subject and Ascending you’ll then generate a list of threads in alphabetical order, which you can browse until you find the show you’re looking for.

Okay, guess that's it for the moment ... see you at the shows!
