I see no reason why anyone who wants to run with a fundraising idea can't,
as long as they don't overstep anything. In other words, sure go organise
calendars, but when they're ready to be produced, make sure theforum agrees
with the details. Investigating things should be cool.

+1. I think we should all remember this when we get frustrated at someone
here. that person doesn't have to help out at all, and though you might not
like it we're all giving up time / money / whatever to evolt.org.
