ASC Network Calendar Changes - Annoucement

ASC NETWORK CALENDAR CHANGES ARE BEING ROLLED OUT

After considering member input on splitting the ASC calendar we chose a method that tries to incorporate all the needs and requests as best we can. So the ASC is simplifying our network calendar. A lot of thought and testing went into the decision.   This is due to:
  • there being some confusion about what is Announceable on the WA Server
  • members brought up the fact that multiple calendar windows make it hard to see our group as a whole
  • the calendar loading ridiculously slow (because our calendar is a compilation of 50+ calendars loading)
  • the fact that we are approaching the character limit for the Google calendar API
  • The last two reasons were the reason we HAD to change, but the first two reasons rolled in nicely.   Having one combined calendar like this with two calendar options will allow us to show our diversity in interests and allow non WA software on the All Inclusive stream list.    

    THE BIG CHANGE

    Instead of inviting the ASC calendar to see your streaming calendar, we'll need you to invite one of the 2 ASC calendars "WA Announceable" and "All Inclusive" to your individual streaming listings. (Directions below)    

    THE LOOK OF THE ASC NETWORK PAGE

    There will be 2 main colors for the calendar "WA Announceable" (blue) and "All Inclusive" (purple). The WA stream will be in red and the ASC calendars in greens.   See the updated calendar here.    

    HOW TO UPDATE YOUR STREAMING CALENDAR

    I apologize for the inconvenience. But we tested and tried various things to make this as painless as possible. It should take members about 10 minutes to do the change and be done with updating any existing events for your calendar.   Directions for adding each of your streaming events to the calendars can be found here.     My calendar is switched over - to be the example so you can see what the colors will look like.  
    PLEASE let us know if you encounter any issues. We'll be here to help get you transitioned over. Ask questions in the #streamers-corps channel on WA
      These changes *should* make it so we don't need overhauls to the calendar again.
