Don't forget the Kitely Calendar

Post by Selby Evans »

The Kitely Calendar is being display around the grid. So It is already time to think about posting your events. You can post your own events. Just follow the instructions here:
http://virtualoutworlding.blogspot.com/ ... vents.html

I noticed one or two places displaying the video when I followed the egg hunt, and one made it into my video. Furthermore, we have a number of posts of scheduled events on it. Those are the two things we need to build an audience for it.

Here are some of the posts I found.

I do like this and integrated it into my old personal google calendar [without which I would be even more clueless than I am!!].

If google changes that I will be a bit annoyed too ...lol

This is for the google calendar only? How is that being displayed inworld and where? Is that the land owners you are listing?

There is also the calendar Dundridge runs. Is that completely separate or are the two somehow merged? Where can that be found inworld and elsewhere? I am, as always, somewhat confused. But, in this case, I think it really IS confusing that we have more than one calendar. It is also somewhat labor intensive for event planners.

This is a case where two different systems were being worked on simultaneously by two different groups without knowledge of each other.

Both calendars are planned to be displayed on the Kitely Welcome Center, but both are developed and maintained by users. They are currently included in KWC stage 1 if you want to see how they are treated.

Dundridge's calendar is more visual, includes more bells and whistles (e.g. a countdown timer) and is still actively under development. I'll leave him to explain it in more detail since I'm not sure of the procedure to add events to it.

Selby and Handy's calendar is based on media on a prim and a standard Google calendar, making it relatively straightforward to incorporate into a build but potentially not as pretty.

Hopefully, choice is good.

I've been adding my events to the Kitely Calendar through the Google Calendar interface. I think I've been doing it correctly and the times (which I enter in Kitely World Time - or PDT) display correctly when I look at the calendar directly through the Google website. But when I looked at the entries through the in-world version of the calendar in the new KWC Stage 1 world yesterday, the times were displayed three hours earlier than they were supposed to be.

For example, the event I had scheduled last night (Guided Tour of Donnybrook Beach) was scheduled from 9 PM - 9:30 PM (PDT - Kitely world time) on Friday, April 25th. When I looked at it on the in-world version of of the calendar in KWC Stage 1, the times were given as 6 PM - 6:30 PM. Why would the times be displayed three hours off on the in-world version of the calendar compared to the website version of the calendar? I went into the Google calendar website and checked - nobody had changed the times for the event, but it was displaying different times in-world.

This situation appears to be consistent - the tour I have scheduled for 12 PM (Noon) PDT on Sunday, April 27, 2014 is listed for 9 AM on the in-world version of the calendar. Does anyone have any idea of what is going on here?

If this is confusing me, it is likely to be confusing people who might want to attend my events.

Perhaps one solution to avoid confusion is to use the original Kitely-sanctioned method to publicise events: the Events and Activities section of this forum -- http://www.kitely.com/forums/viewforum.php?f=17

That could explain it, I guess. I assumed that when I was in the Kitely Calendar it would show times at the time set for that calendar, which presumably would be Kitely in-world time (PDT).
I actually live in the Eastern time zone, and EDT is 3 hours ahead of PDT. So if I enter an event at 12 Noon EDT it would show up on the calendar at 9 AM PDT.

Now I have to figure out how to set my Google calendar default time zone to Pacific Time.

Edited to Add: My Google Calendar does list "GMT-05" at the top, so it's Eastern Time. I decided that I would just leave it that way and enter my events for 3 hours earlier to compensate for the difference. I moved the final April tour tomorrow to 3 PM Eastern, which is 12 Noon Pacific (and Kitely) time. So it should be fine now.

Thanks,

Dundridge is using the same calendar (as I understand it), just reading it and displaying it in a more elegant form. The contents are the same.

The calendar is displayed on the web here:
http://virtualoutworlding.blogspot.com/ ... vents.html

There are also instructions on how to get posting authority on the calendar. Whatever is posted in the calendar will appear on the web and on any instances inworld, where it can be shown as web-on-prim or in the elegant form that Dundridge is developing for the Welcome Center. So we don't have more than one calendar, just two forms of inworld display,

You may have to click on the simple form to see the calendar. If you have your media set (in preferences) to show media automatically, you won't have to click. I Firestorm, you should be able to scroll down the calendar if you want to look farther ahead. You should also be able to click on an entry and get details.

Note that the Google calendar may not handle and inworld location right if you put it in the location field. Best put the location (url or hop) in the description.

See this video for an example of the simple calendar being displayed inworld(at about 3 mins. into the video.):
http://virtualoutworlding.blogspot.com/ ... vents.html
(Thanks, MT)

I also have a similar poster up at the Hobo Sandbox on Cookie II.

The events I listed were just the events given in the calendar for upcoming. For simplicity, go to the web calendar and click on the events you see.

If anyone wants a copy of the simple inworld display, they can send me an IM. The simple calendar is one prim, full perm.
