it'd be nice if everybody would tag 'events' with [[category:events]]

FWD Events Re-Direction
There is no reason to mention that I post my events to noisebridge-discuss and noisebridge-announce, "invariably" or not.
-- (saved separately in case of future undo's)
Thanks for using this Category_talk:Events section.
But no, a certain percentage of people invariably see the fairly brief wiki event description here before viewing the listserve posting (assuming they're subscribed to either listserve). They'll subsequently be able to use the Discuss/Announce re-direction in its current state to effectively see timely reminders of the bi-weekly FWD highlights.
As a beneficial use-case scenario for those of us (who shall remain nameless) solely wishing to glean highlights of bi-weekly FWD events, this very re-direction filters out the large amount of discussion "noise" even better than subscribing to the Discuss list in Daily Digest mode.
Let's please keep it that way.
Nthmost electing Nuclear option
Okay, what's done is done.
Still, in the Category:Events Party for Saturday May 17 2014 21:00, an awesomely excellent edit could be:
|description = In town to get your MAKE on, come by Saturday after Maker Faire and get your HACK on at Noisebridge!
... or Nthmost and the other powers-that-be can just keep ignoring suggestions like these.
It would be easier to take suggestions if they actually, you know, came to our attention in some way. I'm not going to keep watching these Talk pages. The only reason I'm even here is that someone noticed a bunch of anonymous trollish edits coming from a particular IP address and sent me a link.
Options at your disposal:
- the nb-discuss list
- emailing someone personally
- the rack list
The "nuclear option" is temporary and only applies to a few pages. Feel free to troll elsewhere -- somewhere that doesn't matter as much to the continued well-being of the community.
It's of benefit to no-one to erase or make malicious subtle edits to event listings. Go do something productive for a change.
