Thanks for the comments.
Generally speaking, we're trying to avoid the creation of additional forums and sub-forums that will only: 1) be sparsely used, 2) spread topics out. For the most part, unless there's subject matter which for some reason cannot be adequately discussed within the existing forums, we're hesitant to create more.
One possibility is for us to create a pinned "Upcoming events" topic as has been done elsewhere, but I think it actually does more justice to the event to post it as a separate topic because then the heading can give some indication about what the event is, and thereby better attract the attention of those who may be interested in it.
Through corruption of the Dhamma comes corruption of the discipline, and from corruption of the discipline comes corruption of the Dhamma. This is the first future danger as yet unarisen that will arise in the future. You should recognize it and make an effort to prevent it. (AN 5.79)
Neither traceable in the Discourses nor verifiable by the Discipline, one must conclude thus: 'Certainly, this is not the Blessed One's utterance; this has been misunderstood by that bhikkhu — or by that community, or by those elders, or by that elder.' In that way, bhikkhus, you should reject it. (DN 16)
