As requested, I've changed the calendar to add some little extras...

The calendar is now searchable for "BM Organised Events"You can filter for events which have people attendingEmpty days are automatically hidden from the year overview pageThe year overview page also shows how people friends are attending, how many in total, and if it's a BM event or notWhen visiting an event there's a clear (but not intrusive) message asking if you are planning to attend the event or not
Hopefully it's mostly self explanatory, but here's an example from the calendar year-overview page:

Sat 18 Feb 
1) (BM) Night Out In Chester (1|15) *371mi

This means it's a BM-only event.  The numbers in brackets mean 1 friend is going plus 15 in total.  The number at the end means it's 371 miles away from my postcode.

There's a button at the top also which says "Toggle Empty Days".  Automatically empty days are now hidden, but you can press this button to show them again if you prefer that view.

When opening  an event you'll see this...

Are you planning to attend this event? 
Yes - add to my calendar

Think that's simple enough, and will hopefully stop the emails I get asking "how do I add an event to my profile?"

Any questions, please let me know

Hey Jinx

Yea me too.  Everything looks ok in the database and I can see all approved events are visible.

Give me some examples please (who submitted, approximately when it was submitted, and of course the title of the event. Date/time of the event would also help - whatever you have)

JP i found the problem!

You put the end date BEFORE the start date, so it doesn't appear on the calendar...

Start: 2017-07-07 12:00:00.000
End: 2017-06-09 00:00:00.000

Clap

I'll find it online and fix it, no worries. 

There's 4 in total like this...

Boxing Day Meets,Gloucestershire
Barflys Rally 2017
Maryport Blues Festival
Brightonia

I will also add some error-checking into the "Add Event" page to catch this earlier in future

Night out in Shrewsbury is a bm only event but still isnt showing (BM) or has that gone by the wayside now?

Neither of the Nights Out In Chester or in York showed as (BM) either, smiley smiler,Big smile - but think they went through before being marked up as BM was mooted. Good luck with yours, hun! Hug

Matt, on the main calendar page, before submitting an event, there is no info about length of time to wait, after submitting, before contacting staff.
Would it be possible to add it please? 

Also there needs to be quicker acceptance times, especially as there are now 5 staff members who deal with the calendar. Cheers
