Although Google Calendar doesn't allow you to create or modify arbitrary recurrence rules like "Saturday after second Tuesday", the iCalendar specification which it uses and understands is quite robust in this regard. Simply create a *.ics file for the event with a custom recurrence rule or RRULE. For your example, note that since the second Tuesday of a ...

Google Calendar supports SMS reminders for events in the Options section. I don't think this is available for Tasks as yet though. And yes, it worked in Europe (well, in the UK) for me.

Actually, there is a way to remove an event. You have first to join or decline, then you click on the "going" list or "Maybe" list. You'll find yourself & a small "x" next to it. Click "x" to remove the event.

You should use the new Groups functionality to achieve this. Create a group under the same name as your page and think of it as an inner circle to your more dedicated fans. You will then be able to invite group members to the event. Pages are meant to provide information without being a nuisance to the follower. It is basically an extension of a business ...

I have been looking at this for a few days and the nearest thing I could find to what you want is an iPhone App called EventsBook Apple Store Link Developers Website It can sync Events and Birthdays with Facebook although it is not clear whether you can accept or decline event invitations. Short of writing your own Application it doesn't look like their ...

The one I've seen most used is JustGiving - that allows goal tracking etc from what I've seen... but it's UK-only I think. If you're looking for a US-based site, they have a partner site called FirstGiving which offers the same features. One key thing about them both is that they track donations and give directly to a charity... so the charity has to be ...

My two cents: If you need SMS reminders for tasks, then your task-management system could probably benefit from some additional thought. You should be consulting and rearranging your daily task list multiple times per day. I use Gcal and Gtasks, assigning tasks to the day when I expect to actually do them ("do" dates, not "due" dates). On today's list, I ...

Two services you look at are regonline and Certain. Certain may be overkill for what you want, but what I think both of these are worth a look.

Unfortunately, Google Calendar isn't that flexible. I don't think you're going to be able to do what you want. The upside is, of course, is that there can't be more than 12 of these in a year, so it's not going to be overly burdensome to do each one individually.

When you are creating the event, there is an option that says "Invite members of the host group to this event", but I'm not sure that it is possible to do so after the event has been created -- the option is no longer there when you go to edit the event or invite friends. I think you will have to invite the group members right from the start when creating ...

You could create a Sikuli script that would periodically log in and answer invites. Sikuli is a computer-vision-based UI automation tool. Check out the demos: http://sikuli.org/ EDIT: Something to look for -- they actually have some demos of folks using Sikuli to play Facebook games for them.

There isn't a way to add formatting to the event description; it does not accept HTML markup. If you have event details that you want formatted in a certain way, I suggest putting the details on a separate web page and pasting the URL into the event description, or post a link on the event's wall. It will open in a separate tab when clicked.

Werner, Using Google Calendar's API with JSON-C or ATOM seems to be a clean way to add events to your calendar. You may have to read up on how the authentication is processed, but the JSON code could be as simple as the following: POST /calendar/feeds/default/private/full HTTP/1.1 Host: www.google.com Authorization: ... Content-Type: application/json ...

Depending upon what language you are comfortable with, Google's calendar API seems like the best way to go. All you would have to do have a executable script in your preferred language (Python, PHP, Java), implement authentication using the API and create event. I would probably run the script as a cron job as well.

I think EventHoller does everything you're looking for, it lets you create different ticket types and you can set limits on how many of each type are sold. It has a couple other cool features as well. It also accepts a variety of payment options, which you mentioned you are looking for. It also makes it easy for organizers and attendees to contact eachother, ...

I suggest you try Shastic, a free ticketing service that is super easy to use, you can set it up in 2 minutes and you can use Paypal to receive payment instantly as each ticket is sold.

Another alternative is SignupMaster. You might be able to achieve the desired gender mix by using their "limited seats" and "waiting list" features.

Twitter Advanced Search has some of what you're looking for -- f'r instance, here's the feed for tweets with the tag '#aardvark' that are emitted by someone named 'pete' (which has no results, sadly) Unfortunately, there are no wildcards that I'm aware of, so it's an exact-match on the tag and name. There are a lot of other options available, though. ...

Followupthen is not as powerful as what you need, but is a really nifty tool for power-user mail usage.

The closest thing I have seen that does something similar to this is Syphir Rules. I haven't checked if it can do exactly what you want, but it might, since it allows you to define your own rules.

Yes it is possible to integrate with Facebook's API - agreed with @rchern though the details of which are best discussed on StackOverflow. The relevant API page is http://wiki.developers.facebook.com/index.php/Events.create

Just started using Plancast to do just that — import my events from Eventbrite and several other services and export them as a feed suitable for Google Calendar.

If EventBrite provides some kind of RSS feed, you can send this feed to RSS2iCal, which will create an iCal file, that you'll then be able to integrate as an external calendar into Google Calendars
