Posting events in the forum hasn't really been something we monitor or is in the sites TOS. The reason we encourage it, is because it is the most used/comprehensive public calendar in the county. The traffic to it is huge. Also, most of the events submitted to the MT calendar are pulled from online and put into the paper, which is the complete opposite of how we used to do it. That's an additional 20,000 people seeing the events.
On the other hand, there is always room for improvement! We'll take a look at it to see if there's something better we can do with it to make it easier to read - both online and in print. If you have suggestions from other papers or other websites, please post them here. Thanks for the help.
