[EDIT]Kineda has pointed me toward SF4Answers.com’s version of this, which appears to already be established. So it makes my stuff a bit pointless. :)[/EDIT]
.:: What have we here?
A map of upcoming tournaments in the US. I think it’ll help tournaments get more exposure if someone can zoom into their area and see everything that’s coming up, rather than have to skim 5+ pages of the tourney forum. Especially for people that may not be near big tourney areas.
Yahoo! Pipes: http://pipes.yahoo.com/sf4tournaments/unitedstates
Google Maps: http://is.gd/4iiMO [full url]
The Pipes version is ordered by date, but the Google version has a nicer interface. Take your pick.
.:: How do I get listed?
Send an email to sf4tournaments AT gmail DOT com … BUT don’t just slap a bunch of random-ass info in there. First item should be info parsable by Google Calendar. For example: SF4 Super Ultra Fight Night 7PM 11/18/2009 at 123 Somestreet, New York, NY 10002 … all on a single line. Under that, a link to the SRK thread and/or the relevant website. After that, whatever you want. If you don’t follow that format, I won’t post your tourney. Nothing personal, I just don’t want to have to spend my time parsing info when Google will do it for me.
.:: Nice, but …
Right now it shows everything for the next 6 weeks … seemed like a reasonable timespan. I’m working on making the Pipes version a bit nicer (clickable links, more info, etc…). I’m still very new to using Pipes, so if you have any suggestions definitely let me know.
Anyway, I’m hoping to see if this little experiment will gain traction. Have at it.
