Calendar with events.

These RFCs were either rejected or have been replaced by an alternative proposal. They will not be included in phpBB.

Calendar with events.

I think some simple calendar with events will be good starting point to make better ones in feature :)

Except that phpBB development has always said that calendars are not part of bulletin board functions. They're fine as extensions, but not as part of the core.

How many forums make proper use of their forum calendar, bar listing members birthdays on one. They never get used much on most other forums having them, so don't see it as being that needed for phpBB 3.1

One would say phpbb is about community and communities often have events and meetings so.. It is useful for many boards but not useful for others. Same as many other phpbb features such as user ranks, attachments, jabber, custom profile fields etc. I really dont like this dividing to "bb features" and "not bb features". I understand why developers chose this approach, to keep the core as light as possible but then it would be great if there were many "official extensions based on voting in phpBB Ideas". I am really looking forward how this will go and what phpbb will be in next few years.

I'd prefer official extensions to adding non-forum related features, like event calendars and newsletters to the forum core but they add what they want and skip what they don't. In the end, it's up to them; not us, so I don't think the votes mean much.

I couldn't agree more.
I wish there where enough developers that we could have an Extension development team for official extensions. There is actually some features which could be trimmed out of the core, if it was possible to have officially supported extensions.
