Hey, Corteo, you could have PMed me not to keep sharing the time post.

Even so, I agree that there should be a designated info post regarding releases (or mods should edit the first post like they do for holidays and events).

The only reason I even shared it to begin with was that people weren't reading the thread to find the info whether it was two pages or two posts ahead of them.

Now that I've seen it's not wanted though, I'll stop posting. Frankly, I'm surprised the wiki hasn't updated with the time chart. It's still listed as a "speculation" on their release page.

Jazeki, I am another that is so grateful that when I checked into the News thread, your post was the first thing I saw. I would like to see an info post on the first page that we could be directed to, but barring that, I loved your solution and assistance.

I believe TJ could reserve the first post after the announcement, and enable mod editing for it? Then someone like Socky (or one of the mods from the section) could keep it updated. I'm sure people would catch on pretty fast that this was a thing. And if not, and they're asking in the thread, there would be plenty who would direct them there.

If he reserves the post then we don't have to be concerned about someone being fast enough to grab the slot. It would always be there.

This would definitely be the simplest solution if TJ is willing. Plus, TJ could just say in the first post to check the second post for usermade FAQs, info, spoilers, etc.
Otherwise, the first mod on can grab their first post for editing, but that requires deleting any posts before it, which I know isn't fun for users.

I know a lot of users appreciate the repeat posts, there are probably lots like me who don't really have an opinion on them, but there are also multiple users bothered by the repeat posts, which I know from reports and the like. So a compromise that provides the information but requires less re-posting (therefore making it more obvious when someone has whatever kind of update to share) is good with me.

Random question, but would you all be interested in seeing all releases added to the forum calendar or just stay holidays (as it makes it easier to tell how many days are left at a glance)?

If we get the release warning ahead of time, then I'm all for it. Otherwise, I don't see the appeal.

Holidays = holiday events, which go on for multiple, but limited, days...

I am not given a head's up for releases (nor would I be allowed to ruin the announcement of a release if I was), so thumbs_up.png . Thanks for answering!

Yes, I was asking if people would want regular releases on the calendar in addition to holidays or keep it just holidays.

That was where I got confused. What do you mean by regular releases ? You can't put them up there till they happen, so what would that tell us ? I don't know about you, but I use a calendar to remind me something is going to happen...

I would, personally. I think it sounds like a fun little thing to look back on.

However, I think that the pre-announcement of holiday breeding periods, if not holiday release dates / other recurring fun stuff like the Easter egg hunt should go in the calendar.

I would love to see an Announcement in the calendar. That way I could be not egg-locked and be prepared.

I don't get pre-warning of releases, nor would I be allowed to spoil if I did, so unfortunately, I can't help with what you want. ^^

Sorry for misleading everyone! D:
