COMMUNITY CALENDAR VOLUNTEER NEEDED!

Volunteer(s) needed to be in charge of adding new events to the calendar. Preferably someone knowledgable about upcoming gaming events around the country. This includes Gaming Expos, Tournaments, Club Events, Arcade Openings, Trade Shows etc. Also, the ability to make clear, concise, nice looking posts is a big plus. Our new calendar is a big improvement, you can see it here: https://forums.atari.io/calendar/ If more than one person would like to help maintain the calendar that would be terrific. Thanks!

Thanks kamakazi, I imagine it's like debugging a game 😀

Actually, after taking web design courses, its worse.  I've had a simple CSS add-on throw a whole site out of whack.  Removing the add-on only made matters worse.  Best thing I found to do was to back up the entire site before adding/changing anything.  This way should an error occur you can return back to a working model before changes were performed.  It is a headache when just one thing can upset the whole project.

When I was developing my web site project I thought I could use the same inner pages for both 2600 and NES games.  The NES games did not like the settings and design the 2600 games used requiring their own page.  Planning on paper helped, using mock ups made in an imaging program helps a lot.

Also, idea for a header image to go behind the Atari.io name if you plan to do it.  An image showcasing all the Atari hardware, mostly right justified so it doesn't fight the site name. Just a thought.

just letting you know that I got Atari IO chat listed in my jaguar community united yahoo group calendar and on the AVC Online calendar.
right now its set for everyday all day. when you start with the Wednesday chat thing I can edit them.
as mentioned in chat before, the yahoo groups don't send out reminder like before so I got a monthly newsletter being e-mailed out to them.

Thank you Dan! We've already begun doing Wednesday Night Atari Chat again as a regular thing, though I haven't been pushing it hard on Instagram or elsewhere until January. Go ahead and put "Wednesday nights" in your calendar 🙌 There's no particular set time since people will be streaming in and out all evening across multiple time zones, so a good rule of thumb to remember is that chat's open 24/7 and Wednesday Night Atari Chat will get hopping when it gets dark in the east and wrap up when everyone has gone to bed in the west. Generally before/after dinner until bed time. Thank you for getting the word out.

2019 will be be about inviting other classic gamers from Atari Age, YouTube, Instagram and Facebook groups who fit our community to join Atari I/O. Everybody is welcome here. If you've made friends in other communities, arcades, classic gaming shops, Facebook, your kickball team, wherever, and you enjoy talking retro gaming with them and think they'd get along great here, go ahead and invite them in. The Forums are far enough along now to accept new members, and we'll have some fun events coming up this year. Go ahead and invite a few people to check out the forums or join us in the chat if you think it's something they'd enjoy 💥💥💥

Thanks again. We're going to start sending out a newsletter of our own pretty soon. Maybe that will be helpful as well.
