Photoshoot Calender
I don't know if something like this has been brought up before and I know there's already an 'events' page. Maybe this could become a subsect of this.

The idea being that CI, being such a hub of the community and with people arranging photoshoots more and more outside of cons and events that this might be a new way of utlising the site. Having tried to arrange photoshoots before via the forums, with some success, you find that the topic gets swept away really fast and you're not always getting the attention of the cosplayers you want/need/think may be interested.

My idea would be to have a calender where people could enter 'open photoshoots' where if they were looking for certain cosplayers from a certain series they could advertise that there. So in reverse if there was a cosplayer looking to get some people together for a photoshoot of the same series they'd be able to broswe and see what was going on and where.

Just a thought XD

Hey hon, sorry for the very late reply! (I'm working through this section now!)

I can understand the idea behind it, but I'm really not sure it could work like the events list we have at the moment. If it's someone looking for people to join a photoshoot, then often they'll need a discussion to work out the plans - it's a lot more sociable to do it somewhere like a public forum than over PMs. Also plans for groups & photoshoots change all the time, whereas events are generally set in stone with a hefty deposit months in advance. I'd be worried about any calendar being filled up with events that aren't happening, a bit misleading to our members!

In my mind having the topics on the forums also makes it more casual I think, people might be scared 'adding' themselves to a photoshoot if there's not a discussion to join in on.

If there's enough call, we could set up a separate section of the forum for organising groups/photoshoots, perhaps split into 'at con' and 'outside of cons'. Do think that would make it easier for people to find the information? Please shout any other ideas across!

Was just passing through but would just like to say I think this would be quite a good idea. I love tidiness and think the a dedicated forum sub section would make things alot easier to access and read~
