First, I'd like to clarify that you don't need my blessing to post an announcement about events here, or on the Acdragon boards. That's something you can freely do. (Edit: Someone told me that on the acdragon boards, only moderators can post announcements, so just pm me your announcement and I'll post it.) You don't need my blessing to run an event in-game, and you certainly don't need me there to see that things get done, if the event is your brainchild.
The four basic things to remember when making an event:
1. Assume you're running the event alone;
2. The instructions are simple for people to follow;
3. There's something in it for everyone.
4. Not a lot of people will show up.
