Question about the AnimeSuki Calendar

I got a(most likely useless and stupid) question about the Calendar function of the Forum:

What is the point in having them? I just tried to add a "Recurring Event" but I seem to not have the rights to do that. Why is that? Could it be that the Calendar cannot be customized because the users don't have an individual calendar but everybody sees the same calendar?

EDIT: This thread wakes painful memories of this thread...

To attract attention of course - isn't that what a signature is for?

By all means, make sure to read this.

As far as I know only Administrators have access to the* calendar. I did question why it was so restrictive (even Moderators can't add a simple event) but no one has had the time or inclination to look into it / explain the reasoning yet.

I think general access was originally turned off to stop members posting lots of random rubbish that would ultimately be displayed on the front page of the forum. That needn't be the case, of course, as there are ways to add, configure and moderate as many calendars as you could ever need -- just as there are ways to add user groups and lots of other weird and wonderful things -- it is just that right now we simply don't see the need for them.

* - As in, yes we only have one at the moment and no user can't have their own personal calendar in this version of the forum software (to my knowledge)

Yay, thanks for the anwer. Actually, it would be handy to have a unique calendar for every user since you can add useful (albeit for most people useless) events like when to phone someone or something like that. Since I always forget the most important things in life, it would be a big plus!

... or you could just download / buy software to do it for you, in private, on your own computer, offering greater flexibility and functionality.

Wow, your sig just fits here perfectly:

It's hard... but it's harder to ignore it.

As Jelsoft (creators of vBulletin). Or: just because software has a function, doesn't mean you need it (personally).

Now vBulletin currently has only ONE calender -- a default one EVERYONE sees.
It is possible to create multiple calenders (for some reason) but creating one for
everyone is to much work (as they need to be created manually), plus those alternative
calenders would probably still be publically viewable.

I DID change the access permissions now so that everyone who's in a "site team"
(Staff/Moderators/IRC OPs) should now be able to post events in the default calender.

would be interesting to add the SotM contests as repetitive events, among others.
