(Only ONE calendar please for an event, so we don't have multiple listings for events on the schedule.) If you have repeating events, only the first one needs to be changed, then you can say make the changes for the following events.
     

    To Make The Process Easier

    For future events, you can add the calendars to your Google Contacts. Click the '+ Create Contact' button and 'Create a Contact'. Fill in the calendar name and paste in the email. Then save.
      Now when you invite the Game of Tomes calendar to your event, you can just type in part of the name and it will show in the list.
    You don't have to worry about the mess of random letters and numbers of the calendar name again.  

    The Magic

    Once you invite the correct calendar to your stream events, they will show up on the Game of Tomes calendar. You can edit them in your own calendar to your heart's content. To see any additions and changes refresh the page.  

    Help - If Your Events Don't Show Up

    Please try the following.
    Ensure you added the item to the correct calendar. A mistype in the calendar address will keep your event from being added.
    Refresh the calendar page.
    If you are seeing an error message from Google that says "Your event can't be edited/updated," Google can be cranky as it tries to avoid spam on public calendars. Usually just waiting a few days works. (Let your calendar volunteers you if you need the event posted because it's happening soon, we'll help you get something posted.)
     

    Cancellations

    If you are unable to make your scheduled stream, please remove the event from the calendar and attempt to find coverage in the got-streaming channel of the Discord.
