Getting back in the leaders saddle.

Having left Rift several months ago and comming over to GW2, I have been learning all I can about the game. I am enjoying playing Morgoze the ranger and following the storylines. I have enjoyed participating in various events hosted by others in guild and I think its due time I start giving back to the guild. Having played Rift since Beta gives one a ton of knowledge on that specific game. I am still learning all the ins and outs of GW2 and still have tons of questions as I encounter new parts of the game and explore the maps. Yet, there is a lack of fulfillment in my game play as most of it is done solo. My schedules are not prime time for most and having experienced hosting many events in Rift if there is a want for an event people will show and with a much healthier population in GW2 that becomes even more reason to get back into leading and hosting events for our guild and the general public to attend. I have been grinding and saving up for my 300 gold to buy the leadership ability as well as working on my mastery points. I was wondering if a leaders workshop would be possible to show the new guys how to jump in the saddle and pick up the reins? I would love to start out small with some map clears and mastery point farming. As I continue to learn more about GW2 the type of events I would like to host are those that the players will want to join in and enjoy. I have been reading the forums and I have seen an interest in pet collection for rangers. The possibilites for new events are there and if more people want to come forward and help lead and host these events that only makes Gaiscioch grow and flourish. I look foward to getting back into hosting events or even taking up a co-leader position as I learn more and build up my game knowledge as I once did with Rift.

This sounds good. I've done a pet run and will do a wrap up of my Romping Rangers this coming Saturday and next year expanding for HP and mastery stuff, but my events are definitely NA prime time. I have the 5pm pst slot on Saturdays. 

I made up an updated guide with Fog of how to claim open world events though the fun part is some people are still not claiming PoF bounties correctly. Shame on them. ;) It is a pinned post in the general tavern area of GW2. It is pretty straight forward on PVE because the icons match what you are doing at the time on the map. Only exception is world bosses and PoF bounties explained in the post. Since you have done leading in Rift, you won't be restricted in much you can do in GW2 since you are not a fledgling warlord.

I'm still getting my feet wet with the use of a commander tag. I need to actually make notes so I can remember things on how to put symbols up on people and locations. GMa is a great one to ask about PvE map clears and stuff since she has been doing them for some time. Her Saturday morning event is a great example. So hit her up with questions about that. I can help with anything in the actual claiming on the site that is not explained to your liking in the pinned post I mentioned in the general tavern of GW2 for all to see.

Don't mess with Mama Bear, I might hug you too tight. =D

There are definitely lot of stuff which aren't covered on current events which happens regularly on GW2. I'm happy to bounce ideas with you.

The most important thing in life will always be the people around you. Salud, mi familia.

There may be a LOT going on GW2, but lots of places to put things too. If my schedule works with the timing you run, I'll be there. Most events if you see them on the calendar are scheduled for two hours for picking a time to slip in around what is listed.

I live in the central time zone so 2 hours ahead of Gaiscioch time (PST). I am normaly online Saturday and Sunday mornings early to host events 8 to 10 am CST. So 6 to 8 am PST for game purposes. I noticed I am locked out for hosting events in GW2. So not sure if Fog has to grant permissions to unlock my use of creating events in GW2. I followed the same procedure I normally would have in Rift but my event is not saving. My schdule Monday through Friday is too chaotic to commit to hosting an event then as I am usually on call.

At my admin level I cannot see what would make it so you are not able to save GW2 when you can do so on Rift. And the ONLY difference is the choice of game. The rest is the same for sure.

I got the event on Sundays to post I had to go through the adventure tab versus the participation tab to get the save event prompt button. So if your up and want to take directions from Mango (yes the parrot plays GW2 better than I do) we will see you ththere.

You are talking about the buttons on the right in your command center on the main page? None of them go to the Event Manager page. I get to that from using the menu at the top of the main page. There it is in the pop up menu under Participate and is the first one there. It pulls up the page listing all my existing events and has a create event button on the right. That button pulls up the form to fill out. So in two clicks I can be editing an existing event or making a new one.

I tested a few things just to see if there was a quirk if you were logged in to rift.gaiscioch.com instead of www.gaiscioch.com and wanted to list an event for a game other than Rift and it didn't matter. It's the same form no matter how you get to it, but I'm definitely really confused of the steps you have been using exactly as in where on page of what url link, etc. in order to try to duplicate it not saving. Fog doesn't have time to do much with the page right now, but I'm more than happy to fully troubleshoot so we know what might actually need fixing when there is time to fix it and then can tell people not to do it that way. ;)

When on my smart phone I click on the sun dial then participate tab and attempt to create an event. There is not prompt tab to save the event once it has been set up. If I click on the Adventure shield icon and set up the event I am then given the prompt tab to save the event and it will then populate on the calender.

@Eluveittie Let me start by saying that with gaiscioch.com, a mobile browser is not always the best choice. The site "works" on most mobile browsers, but there are often some formatting issues that may hide the info you're looking for. With that said the easiest way to get to your event listings is to hover your mouse over the "Crown" or Valor Points icon on the top toolbar then click "Schedule an event". The sundial icon only takes you to the 30 calendar, it provides no links for scheduling events. The adventure shield will also get you there once you click schedule an event, but you need to be sure to change the event type from "Special Gaiscioch Event" to Guild Wars 2 or what ever chapter you are posting the event for.

Thanks for the info Pookah. I do not have any mobile thingy to use. All I have is my desktop and my laptop so can't always say what it will look like mobile. I do know Fog has had some fun making it more mobile friendly and I'm sure there is still some old code not helping that he hasn't had time to clean up yet. Even so it is amazing how this thing has grown and all the ways you can access it.
