Default Woodworking Shows & Events

How does a forum on upcoming woodworking shows and events sound? If you think it fits with the routerforum I would be willing to help collect some of the information.

Sounds like a great idea to me. Although I would probably make it a sub forum of an already existing forum. I would gladly set this up if you can provide me with the title and description of this new forum

Mark, other sites have a calendar section. I think a thread under this news forum is the right place for information of upcoming events.

Do you think everything could be organise into a thread? Or would a subforum with year subforums better suit this?

New thread: January 2K7 shows and events
This simple thread informs members of all items for the month. This has the advantage that events can be added at any time, even with short notice or after the fact without effecting other months postings. This can also be used as a reference to when a tool or product is released and for reviews of an event. No muss, no fuss.
Go ahead and run with this RMaxa.

I'm not sure how this should be organized. I found four pages of events for january 2007 on the Woodcraft website. I'm sure I can find more information in other areas. Do I cut and paste the information, do I just attached the link. what about other sources. Should it be titled by month, what about overlapping months. I guess I have more questions then answers at this point.

I would say paste the information so users don't have to visit an external source for the information. Also, I would probably say categories it by month. For example, I will create an "Events" forum. In the events forum you could create a thread with the title like:

December 2006 Events

and in that thread index all the events. I'll be sure to moderate it, or I can set you as moderator of that specific forum, you tell me what you would prefer.

Thanks!

I'm not sure how this will work, can we try some information. Some of the website break it out by location more then by month. If you think it will be interesting to the readers we can go the next step.

What do you think?

Sounds like a good idea, although I think it could become very cuttered if we organise it by that. It would probably require a sub-forum for tech location or a thread. Then again, we could setup a sub-forum for the general topic like so:

WoodWorking Events
-- 2007
---- Jan 2006
---- Feb 2006
---- March 2006
-- 2008
---- Jan 2006
---- Feb 2006
---- March 2006
etc..

Then in each month sub-forum there will be the threads listed.

You are the technical expert in these matters. I can provide whatever information I can find from the web. I hope there is a call for this type of information.
