Um... just one question.

How can I remove all the Zul Aman resets?

Hi Aeslynne-Coolaide!

I had to dig up that old e-mail account info, but I found it and removed Zul'Aman from the calendar!

Hmm, is there anything else that needs changing?  I haven't looked at it closely in a long time.

Hi.  Thank you for letting me know it is your calendar.   


Now that I've taken a closer look at it...the PvP weekends are off (probably because they've added BG's since you created it).

I would need to wait for the next Darkmoon Faire to determine if those are still accurate (they should be.)

Raid instances reset every Tuesday (Still and as always accurate)

The only think I can think of that could be added would be the in-game holidays, though those are not the exact same days, year to year, and could easily be added to our own calendars if we liked.  

And, thanks again.  :)
