New "Official" When Are You Going to Munich Calendar Now Online
 
First, thanks to Gene on behalf of everyone here for having maintained the "official when are you going to munich" thread for the past 30 months.

When he announced his retirement from this task, I suggested we move to a calendar-based system and, magically (thanks to pix335i :thumbup:) a calendar appeared about an hour later.

Please post your user name on the calendar followed by car details when you enter a date on the calendar. For example
JSpira 550i in carbonschwarz

is the only way to see who made the post (otherwise, it just shows a calendar with a bunch of cars with no owners).

The links are in the main forum, on top next to the wiki link.

For quick reference, the calendar is here

Thanks but I can only take credit for the idea, pix335i pulled the calendar out of a hat.

And Gene did do a great job for the past 3 years.

Great idea!!! Thank you... :)

Very Nice!
Just for everyone's reference - put your info in the Subject line for it to show on the main calendar. (I was unsure of exactly where I was suppose to put the info since there is a field for Title, Your Car, and the main message body).

Great idea! Too bad I have to wait two years for my next entry.:cry:

+1!:rofl: (unless I can get out of the e91...)

Also thanks to e36m3r for the old thread. I think that this is much easier. One question, should we go back and add the dates for our previous EDs?

(BTW, Bikie, I like your avatar. I have the Fulcrum version of the Bora...)

Thanks for the Calendar Enhancement
 
Just a few words of thanks from someone who just used the calendar and has used this site as my "BMW Bible"....
- to JSpira for conceptually updating the calendar/starting the new thread,
- to e36M3r (Gene?) for previous 3 years efforts on the old thread, and
- to pix335i for creating the calendar.

It is really first class.

mdurnwald 06-08-2007 09:51 PM

Awesome & just in time!

johnc_22 06-09-2007 05:37 AM

Very cool! I could see maintaining a running thread a PITA.

One little glitch. Only allows about 5 entries for a single date after which the date goes blank except for a line that is confusing but when clicked on will bring up the disappeared entries.

ok, we're on it - danke for the info

Great calendar!

is there a way to edit an entry once it's sent, I mistakenly entered my entry twice and want to edit one. Sorry

Update On Creating Entries
 
Ive cleaned up the calendar, deleted duplicate entries and such. Im also going to add German holidays.

The entry format is simple and requires 3 steps.

1.) In the TITLE field, put your screen name, followed by your car and color (your choice of english or german of course)

i.e. JSpira 550i carbonschwarz

Dont put other details please. It makes the calendar too crowded and I will edit them out.

2.) Select the date

3.) In the ,,What car are you picking up?`` field, put your details such as interior color, options, etc.

I have a prereservation through Irv and am anxiously waiting to hear if I get an end of October delivery.

I am curious how several people already have delivery dates confirmed post Welt opening.

I didn't think BMW gave out the allocations yet?

Other than mine, I only see two people listed following the BMW Welt opening and it's possible they are not confirmed.

Yes!!:thumbup: But don't steal our idea and out it on your site again:rolleyes:

MG67 10-28-2007 11:30 AM

Hey Jonathan, I posted my delivery on the calendar but it took the 18th of december instead of the 17th like I clicked on, could you move it to the 17th for me...:)
Grazi...:thumbup:

I need a bit of help to straighten out my entries - sorry. I inadvertently entered a pick-up with today's date. I also entered the correct date but not enough car build info on the correct date 5/19/08. If someone (J. Spira?) could delete the current 5/19 and move the 12/14 entry to that date, all would be well. At least until I hear back from Irv Robinson that my first choice of pick-up was not selected - hopefully that won't be the case. Thanks for the help and the calendar!
