The events posting feature is primarily aimed at helping local people advertise events. HOL users want as much stuff included as possible and to try and keep things ticking along, we have a little guidance on how things should be posted.
1. Do add a picture for your event if you can; this really helps the event to stand out. If you're really pushing the boat out, it's even better if your picture makes it clear exactly what the event is.
2. Events Lasting over several days
We want lots of events added. However, most events are just for one or two days and longer entries hog the top spot on the front page forthcoming events summary and end up frustrating users who have to plough through the same events as the pile up at eh top of the listings. So, to keep things user friendly, if you want to list an event that lasts for longer than two days, please observe the following guidance:
You can easily copy an event and change just the date information. Please see here for guidance on how to copy your event.
3. Events as Adverts
We allow postings that are advertising genuine events which are pay-to-participate for commercial gain, but please observe our guidance about postings over two days.
We do not allow ANY services to be advertised in the events section. Unless it's a genuine event, please don't list it in events. For the site's general policy on events please see our Promoting your Business page. You can add a sponsored thread for just £15.
SORRY FOLKS, BUT ANY EVENT LISTINGS THAT DO NOT FOLLOW GUIDANCE SET OUT IN 2 AND 3 ABOVE ARE LIABLE TO BE DELETED WITHOUT NOTICE.
