    Hello everyone-

    I was trying to find an area where I could ask for a possible sponsor for some upcoming MR's at the UA club. I looked in the UA thread but didn't see it.

    We need threads like that here, in the various airline forums; it will need people who step forward and maintain/edit the lists.

    One of the few "powers" that guides have is the ability to edit someone elses post (note that we are very sparing and cautious on using that, and I think we all let people know if we do it). So, if someone wants to set up such a thread and can only maintain it on a part time basis, they could PM some guides and see if they can get two or three guides to give them a hand. It will be easier with several people watching and maintaining those threads.

    I've been promised powers of guideship since day one. If you can throw some stones at the powers that be to make me a guide, I'd be more than happy to help this project along.....

    Could we take the thread posts and put it on a yahoo or google calendar? I think thats how it worked on the "other" place too.

    you bet. I think we'll work out a system that will let people share their guesting abilities and guesting needs.

    @Gargoyle: If we charged a dollar for each person looking for being guested in a lounge, that would pay for a lot of marble! :)

    Not with the way marble prices have increased and the dollar has weakened over the past decade!

    Note: I've just started a thread in the feedback forum referencing this thread.

    Since not all lounges / lounge access require same day same airline flights, is it possible to organize a lounge thread by actual location?

    A single thread with a database searchable by various factors: location, date, or airline would be cool.

    What about shared calendars one for each major club? Whoever interested in guesting can put up his/her schedule?

    I can lead the effort on the calendar if there is enough response.

    I've built that functionality already in my lounge guide. It lets you advertise or request access and has a pretty slick calendar, too. I disabled it because of some performance issues but I can try to bring it back to life if folks are really interested. I've also mostly blocked out my day tomorrow to work on the site so it should be online pretty quickly if folks really are interested.

    The thread in the UA forum on MP can be found here: http://milepoint.com/forums/threads/rcc-pc-meetup-thread.13721/.

    Thanks! I would love an active Lounge calendar.

    Not sure why but activity on that other calendar seems to have slowed to a crawl. :eek:(

    I am progressing greatly on the effort, having started out last night by completely breaking everything. :oops:

    I am still expecting to have something in pilot mode later this afternoon or tonight (EST).

    Isn't that an obligatory step?
