SacForums Community Calendar Issue Resolved

April 5th, 2011

I frequently invite people to add their events to the Community Calendar on SacForums.com, but I couldn’t figure out why I wasn’t seeing the events show up. The issue was recently confirmed via a member’s feedback.

I just had a major “AH HAH!” moment…

For whatever reason not all of the settings for the calendar are in the same location. I finally discovered that the moderation option was enabled, which requires an admin or moderator manually approving all calendar events posted by members. However, I never received any notifications, so I would have to manually seek out these events in the calendar and approve them. Obviously, this is time consuming for me, and not really fair to members who are also probably wondering why their events aren’t showing up!

So, I apologize for this oversight and hope that you will continue to add events to the Community Calendar. Events are no longer moderated, so they should show up immediately. If not, please let me know.

Also, please note that calendar events will still be automatically posted to the Events forum.

Thank you for your understanding and, again, I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

New Sports Forums

February 15th, 2011

Sure, Sacramento is home to the Kings, Monarchs (folded in 2009) and the River Cats, but many people may be surprised to learn that there is a lot more to the professional sports scene… So, the pro sports forum is splitting up into individual forums for teams such as the Kings, River Cats, Mountain Lions, Sirens & Capitals.

Here are some direct links to the new forums:

http://sacforums.com/forum/184-sacramento-kings/

http://sacforums.com/forum/185-sacramento-river-cats/

http://sacforums.com/forum/186-sacramento-mountain-lions/

http://sacforums.com/forum/187-sacramento-sirens/

http://sacforums.com/forum/189-sacramento-capitals/

Of course, if you feel a team is missing and needs their own forum, be sure to post a suggestion! :)
