Hidden Events

Read Email list discussion thread-


There has been some confusion about the guidelines for promoting/featuring events, so I figured we should nail some down. It’s always going to be somewhat vague, but better some than none. I started with writing down what I remembered from previous discussions, please edit/amend.


I have added some bullet points in both ‘featured’ and ‘promoted’ events. Also added link to the email list discussion thread.
