We need a booking system here (with excellent timezone support) - in the absence of one, we need to quote games in GMT or something. There is no way I am going to read a bunch of posts and do the maths on every single one !

(all meant in a jovial friendly tone - it kinda read like me being a d**k when I read it back to myself :))

Is it worthwhile having fixed slots, or is everyone going to use times that suit them?

Maybe have 3 or 4 time zones for each event, one US and Euro and one Australian? It's usually easier to convert from one of the more local time zones.

Madman, see if you can book these events on the FGIICon website. I've put together a howto on how to book events. http://fgiicon.com/?p=93

Let me know if the above is confusing or I missed any steps.

Phantom if you'll register an account on the site I'll also bump you up to siteadmin so you can approve GMs.

Game registered!

What plugin is this using (want to nick it for my site for when I run other open games) :)

It's using this: Events Manager (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/events-manager/)

Modwise I ripped out a phone number entry field on the registration form and created a new PHP hash that returns the event length time so I could link that into timeandate.com.

I like the site you've provided for us Dracones. It's clear and clean.

I will play happily in all 4 of your Pathfinder games! By then, I may even be more comfortable with GM'ing and may run a couple of PFS games myself.

Yep, just tell me what categories you want added.

I can run a Cthulhu Invictus scenario that will work as a one-off-it works using the Dark Ages extension.

this is really an awfull way to do it and really over complicated. You have to sign up then you have to get an admin to upgrade you so you can post a convention.

There has to be a better way to do it

Unfortunately unless you want to write your own system, which I'm not going to do, it comes down to hacking something else out there as close as possible to what you want.

As it is with the site you simply have to wait to be confirmed as a GM before you're able to post sessions. The best way to do that is to register on the site and then post in one of the threads that you need your access upgraded.
