adding "Events" articles - Past / Present or Future

Best Practices

all helps/tips articles are in one section at this link

I will create a draft of these instructions and come back and update later

Except for (future events (by date) do not post the same item in several sections  - we will delete it, unless it has dfferent title and content.  The items can link back to each other but we do not allow duplication of articles.

Past and Present events
What section of the forum?
that's up to you - you or the moderator can shift it later

To get the best result in google search engine we suggest you use this format
        Location - event - date  (show in both languages if possible)  
        example: Perth WA - Songkran Festival 10-04-2010   (Thai script)

Body of text
you can show text, photos or videos, links to your website and attachments such as PDF flyers and more. Refer to the help section on how to insert and add attachments

Once you have made the article it will start populating into the google search engine. You can also send links to the article to your friends.

Tag words 
they are very useful - see info on tag words in the help section

Future events
We have a special section called Event dates - link

Best practice for

date (yyyy-mm-dd) - topic  - location    example:  201-09-18  Thai Function for Birthday event - Perth WA

Body of Text
same as for Past and Present. 
You should create 2 articles
1. based ont he Past and presnet format, then
2. article for the Future events title and in the body of the text just make a brief mention fo the details with a link to the 1st article

why 2 articles
both articles will go into google search and the forum in differnet ways
by listing in the events section by date it will be sorted by date

Most all of the members to this forum receive a weekly digest of posts/articles. The posts are presented as a 1 line summary under each section so . to make it easier for the readers if they see the post under the section fo Event Dates and the 1st data is the date then they can quickly recognise when and then what

Next - use Calendars to promote future events
1. the forum has a calendar - try a brief listing (we don't know if it receives much traffic)
2. AusWaThai Calendar of events.. 
     If the topic relates to Aus & Thai please also submit request to our Auswathai calendar link, our AusWaThai readers & Travellers will see it and click the link back to the forum article

ok hope it helps
