Frequently Asked Questions
*READ ME FIRST: General Info about posting your community event on somd.com
A date-specific event is something that occurs at a specific date and time. These types of events are best placed into the Community Calendar at https://somd.com/calendar/
A non-date-specific event might be something like a fundraiser campaign, i.e. we're raising money for this non-profit during the month of May. This might also be used in cases where you have a signup deadline for a date-specific event. People might miss this if the event alone is just posted in the Calendar.
To facilitate non-date-specific events, we have setup the Public Service Announcements (PSA) section at https://forums.somd.com/forums/public-service-announcements.214/
USING THE COMMUNITY CALENDAR
Just go to https://somd.com/calendar/ to get started.
You can register for an account, and later manage that account, by going to https://somd.com/calendar/users/
You can find more detailed help on using the Calendar at https://help.somd.com/kb/faq.php?cid=2
POSTING IN THE PSAs
The PSA section is actually a part of our Community Forums. If you already have an account, just sign in and post your announcement.
You can register for an account at https://forums.somd.com/register/. You can also register using one of your Social Media accounts such as Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Yahoo, Google, Microsoft or GitHub. Please note that new account requests will have to be reviewed and approved by a moderator before you can post (this is to restrict spammers). This typically takes no more than a few hours if created during normal business hours.
More help on using the forums is available at https://help.somd.com/kb/faq.php?cid=9
Please let us know if you need additional assistance.
