    Thank you ;).
    I think, Google-Calendar should be to synchronize with most other calendars on websites; some communities wouldn´t put the Google-Calendar on their homepage because their aren´t very handsome, but it should be to link.
    I hope that by the end of 2017 there will be a good number of participants...

    Yes, we are looking at integrating schedules/calendars from different leagues. Don't ask about details yet, that is a bit too early, but these proposals make sense so you can expect something along these lines.

    @Marcel Offermans probably at this point you already have a model in your mind for the calendar, but i'm still thinking about it. So i just wanna to say some things, maybe obvious things, but this way i can let my mind relax a little bit. =)

    If you analyse the current scenario, the most leagues use the SLS system for controlling the championships and events. So i think If you implement a similar model fully integrated with rf2 + steam workshop and some way to migrate the data from SLS, automaticaly these leagues will prefer to use the rf2 system instead of maintain their own SLS systems.

    And you will have all the data necessary to fill the calendar.

    The closest thing i can think now is the iracing leagues system, which is poorly exploited because it has little flexibility.

    Having this system will be a great attractive for new players, being that other sims have nothing like it.

    Push up :)

    For now there are around ten involved communities with different Sims. The Calendar has grown up and nearly every day in a month show Users events to participate.
    For rF2 we have seven Communties they displayed there Events, from the Rennsimulanten, over P1-Gaming, Simracing-United, Simracing-GP, rFactor2wec, Simracingindonesia and last but not least the Unitedracersleague. Even the separate rF2-Calendar shows Events for nearly every day in the month :cool:.
    Yes, there are not as much visitors as you maybe expect, but if you sign up to the Google-Calendar and add the Sim you want (or simply all) into your personal calendar, you have no need to visit my Website ;).

    Guys and admins, i found again one community with big event and less drivers :(. Bring your events up over the border of your community and share it with the Simracing-world. Participate with your community ON other events and make your community known FOR others. Help to organize similar Events not falling to same day with other communities, this won´t work for all!

    Show or send me posters of your upcoming events and i will put them into the Simracing-calendar. Maybe more Admins should think about establish Racing-Teams instead of Communities and participate on existing races, and not to drive with less than 10 users on their own. With an good calendar and much more teams, we all can drive wonderful events...


    Best regards, Dobbie

    Also in 2018 you can bring up your events into the Event-calendar and share it with the users around the world. Did you know, that you can set an alarm in Google-calendar, so that events in from users subscribed calendars pop up days or hours before the event on PC or smartphone!?

    Have a good year full of interesting and victorious races ;)
