Which events should be posted here?

I am confused: the Annual ADV rallies are now mixed between RAs, MOA's and African Rallies. It's really hard to figure out what are ADV events and outside "vendors".

How about having a ADV Rallies forum (organized on ADV for ADV members) and do the "other rallies/events" as a subforum?

Since she is one of the major players in rally planning, I think Cuttle's point of view should be strongly considered.

I agree. Of course, I have to agree, or else I'll go hungry.

Hahaha, this is Pilot's diplomatic way of saying, "Baldy got an urge to combine Upcoming with ADVrider Annual Rallies and did it before many people got a chance to weigh in."

No worries, happy to make adjustments.

As part of Rebooting ADVrider, I'd like to simplify and clarify where we can. The thing with having both ADV annual and Upcoming on the homepage is it made new users think. They have to read announcements to understand.

There was a thread in Upcoming, for example, 2nd Annual International ADV Girls Gathering. But in the ADV annual rallies forum there are some that sound like someone's personal rally. And Upcoming had relatively low post and thread counts.

I thought AceRph had a good idea: "Old time users have less of a problem figuring out which rallies are traditional ADV events. Maybe we can suggest that ADV rally threads be prefaced w/ 'ADV' in the title. It would make it easier for new users to find them."

Any merit to that idea? And Cuttle, thanks for all the organizing you do. The announcements for Rick's Eastern Rendezvous are awesome.

I think the new format will definitely attract much more announcements than the old upcomig, which never really had many posts (most are in regionals anyway).

My worries about the combined area is, that it will turn into a bump-fest so people keep their event on top. The old format was "at a glance" without scrolling, so nobody got buried or bumped to a second page.

Also, I am sure the old-timers will figure out what is an adv rally and what is not; but we do have at least 20% n00bs each RDV, and it will get harder to reach these folks. If there would be only a couple of ADV rallies, I'd say sticky them, but I don't think it would be an option with the 10+ we have right now. Maybe there is an option to color-code ADV rallies?

I liked the old format. I think the combination makes it confusing and hard to find the "official" ADV events. Maybe Sticky the current years' events.

Hmmm, good points.

I'm happy with the decision to pull Upcoming from the top level and change it from a confusing name. Under Rallies, we could have two subforums: one for ADV rallies and a second one for other rallies (but with a better name).
