Community Sites and Community Leader Tools work together to publish your web site. The Community Sites platform gathers information you create as you plan your event.
A Regional Manager must mark an event as "Working" or "Good" in SWOOP before Community Sites will publish it. Each event type status depends on information your team supplies in Community Leader Tools.
When your event is published, the following things happen for your event within 1 hour:
- Listed on your community site - http://communities.techstars.com/COUNTRY/CITY/
- Listed on our events map at http://www.startupweekend.org/events
- Synced to other sites like http://global.startupweekend.org/ and others
For Startup Weekend events, a "Working" event is one that has:
A confirmed venue
A start date locked in
A live ticketing page (usually through Eventbrite or another supported system) and organizers are ready to start selling tickets and advertise to the public
Profiles filled out for the event team and any stakeholders (coaches, volunteers, etc.)
Work with your Regional Manager or Program Manager to update the publishing status of your event.
