BritNerf Calendar

This is an idea we've thrashed around almost every year since the forum was founded. With the recent influx of 'compootery' members I thought I'd ask the question again in the hope that someone has a suggestion.

I want to create a calendar that we can use to collate and share events. I've tried using Google calendars but it wants to link to my personal account and I'm sure you lot don't really care what I'm doing next week. It needs to be shareable so it can be used to promote our events via social media. The ability to add our branding would be pretty sweet too but not essential. Another nice touch would be the ability to subscribe to updates somehow, perhaps even sync it with your own calendar so members will always know what's going on.

I don't mind paying for it but obviously a free/cheap solution would be great.

Any suggestions?

Sounds like Microsoft SharePoint would fit the bill. But that is bound to cost.  I'll have a dig around and see what is possible  with it outside of a business environment... not sure but bound to need some Web server hosting of some kind... Unless anyone is running a web server we can use????

We could go experimental and try and code a solution using something like a Raspberry Pi converted to a Web server type deelie. That is probably a step to far though. Not robust enough.

Alternatively, why not create a BritNerf Google account and link that calendar?

I tried that but it didn't work for me. When I tried to sync it to my iPad it went the wrong way. There is a high possibility that this was because I'm an idiot.

Nah. Not an idiot. I'll go with Apple and Google screwing it up for each other. May be better on a PC where you haven't got an app and are not logged in. Should force you to input the login details of the account.
