Following my debacle with how to register an upcoming event here, it struck me how strange it is that the calendar registration doesn't generate a forum announcement.

It's not exactly rocket science to automate a forum post from the data given when you submit your event to the calendar.

I have wished for this months ago. Now that there is somebody else hoping to get it maybe they find time to do it.

It should be optional though, because if all events have a post, you could just as well look at the calendar.
What I'd like, is a link to output all incoming events as a list, with some filters (eg. what are all the incoming ECQ in Europe?)

With the latest update on how to report a tournament (including a link to the calendared event), my suggestion that registering through the calendar automates a forum post for registration, is even further strengthened.

Such an automated post would include all relevant data, making reporting a matter of raping and pasting the registration-post and add the number of players along with some text to flesh the report out plus the TWD.

As of the current situation we have to manually enter data three times, with the explicit demand that such manually entered data interconnect with each other. That's, quite frankly, absurd.

It is not so simple task to make automatic posts with all the complex backend systems involved. You can always first enter your tournament into the event calendar and then copy+paste the relevant information to your forum post.

It seems Jevents already supports automatic event-exports to facebook and twitter by means of AutoTweet. I'd assume it should be able to export to Kunena as well (or Fireboard or whatever you're using).
