Event creation should be made better with a wizard, that allows to either create an event in several steps only, or add an xml upload, or generate a demo event.

When creating an event:

  • ask about the language early on
  • emphasize that the slug cannot be changed later on
  • warn that slugs longer than X characters may be annoying
  • add flags next to language checkboxes
  • warn if an event is created to take place in the past
  • explain how language fallbacks work
  • suggest a slug automatically
  • validate slugs for plausability, as they can't be changed later on

Side note on wording:
A wizard, does something magical I don't understand. Things happen and then I have some sort of result without an idea how it came to be. I'm left with the emotion of having no influence on what happens.

An assistant on the other hand clearly communicates that I, the user, am in charge to control the widgets and assists me in achieving my goal, not the mysterious aim of a wizard.

Voice sensible concerns at event creation time
Notes if an event is bound to take place in the past, or if the slug
does not contain the current year. Also contains a note that the slug
cannot be changed later on.

Suggest a slug on event creation
Just takes the first letters of the event name and adds the current
year. Stops once the user has modified the slug field themself.
