Every month, we have multiple fly-outs/flyins on the IFC.
However, many of these events are planned at the same time on the same date as other fly outs on the same date.
This creates a problem because:
- Some people sign up for both and this requires many event makers to send messages to make sure people decide which flyout to join in.
- Some people make events about a week before the date of the event, especially when there are 2-3 other events on the same date.
- Even when some event creators send messages, they may not get replies back as to whether people are participating, causing many last-minute dropouts.
What I suggest:
Due to many events and life, many event makers already understand that there are last-minute dropouts in many events.
Many people want to make events, but this creates a conflict when some last minute event is made (such as a week or two before the actual event date).
This causes people who have already signed up in events to drop out to join what they think is a “better event”.
I suggest that in order to keep conflicting events in order, all event scheduling should go through an authority (like a board for events or something that works similarly to IFVARB for events).
There should be around a max of two to three events on the same day (can be decided) in order to avoid the problem of conflicting events.
What do you think about it? If you think something could be edited, let me know.
EDIT: After some very helpful comments, some things this board could maybe help with:
- Less clunky titles and more appealing formats
- Fewer complaints of people not attending events
Some people have said against making an IFERB, which I totally understand, because we may not need an IFERB. Something they have suggested:
- Make a chronological order
- Simple system notifying a clash
