How to Use the Calendar

Calendar Overview

If you encounter any errors on the site, including the ads list or the calendar, or if you have a general question or comment, please post a comment in the LEAVE A REPLY section at the bottom of the “I have a question or comment” page. We will attempt to answer questions and fix problems in a timely fashion.

We use one calendar to manage different categories of events, including Swim Team, Tennis, Activities, and Pavilion. Browse different months using the date selectors at the top left. To view events for a particular category, click on the colored buttons next to the “Show Type” label at the top right of the calendar. You can switch views by selecting the “Month” or “Week” button below the categories.

You must be a registered user and a member of the Maple Ridge Homeowners’ Association to add or edit events. Once you log in you can add events into any of the categories listed above. You can also edit or delete any of the events that you have added previously. Unless you are site administrator, you won’t be able to edit or delete events added by anyone else. If you would like to delete or edit another member’s event, please contact the HOA.

Registration and Login

If you encounter any errors on the site, including the ads list and the calendar, or if you have a general question or comment, please post a comment in the LEAVE A REPLY section at the bottom of the “I have a question or comment” page. We will attempt to answer questions and fix problems in a timely fashion.

If you just want to browse the site, read and respond to ads and check the calendar, there’s no need for you to register. However, if you want to post ads on the ads list or add events to the calendar, there are several reasons why we require you to register:

1. The ads list is a neighborhood ads list, created to facilitate commerce among residents of Maple Ridge Subdivision and nearby neighborhoods and organizations.  We screen each prospective member to ensure that he or she resides in a neighborhood in our coverage area.

2. The calendar is designed to facilitate event publication and planning for Maple Ridge Homeowners’ Association (HOA) members. Site subscribers who reside in the vicinity of the neighborhood may be given the privilege of posting to the ads list, but only HOA members may add and edit calendar events.

3. SPAM is a huge problem for these types of sites and we simply don’t have the manpower to moderate every posting for appropriate content.  Registration is the best way we know of to keep spammers, bots, and other evil-doers from inundating our site with phony, annoying, and otherwise inappropriate ads.

Please read the following instructions carefully. We do not have the manpower to be able to provide support for this process.

IMPORTANT: You will not be registered for the site until your registration has been approved by an administrator in step 3 below.  This is the best way we know of to keep spammers from clogging our site with fake registrations!

1. Browse to www.mapleridgesubdivision.com. On the left side of the screen you’ll see a Login area. Click on Register, just below the Login button.

2. Fill out the form and click the Register button. Your registration is not active yet! You will see a message saying, “Your registration was successful but you must now be approved by an administrator before you can log in. You will be notified by e-mail once your account has been reviewed.

3. Once a Maple Ridge administrator has reviewed and approved your account you will receive an email entitled “Your membership has been approved.”   Your registration is now complete and you may log in and place ads.

4. [optional] Complete your user profile by logging in and clicking  Profile link in the Login area on the left side of the screen.  None of the information you provide, except for the name and email address you used to register, is currently used by our site.  However, we may implement a mailing list later for our ad community.  If you choose to opt in your information will be used to send you occasional alerts and announcements.

We use your name and address during the registration process to confirm that you reside or work in our community and are thus eligible to place ads on the site and, if you are a member of the Maple Ridge Homeowners’ Association, add events to the calendar. If you want to provide information for future use (newsletters, alerts, etc.), please login and fill out your user profile.

If you place an ad on the ads list, your email address is stored in our database to be used when someone replies to your ad.  While anyone can view your ads on the site and reply using our automated system, your email address will be hidden from viewers.   You are free to include your phone, text number, or any other information you wish in your ad details, but be aware that any information you provide in the details of an ad, including images, phone numbers, etc., will be viewable by the general web-browsing public and we cannot be responsible for how someone might use it.

1. Make sure you’re using the correct user name and password.   Remember that user names and passwords are case-sensitive, ie., mypassword is not the same as mypassWord.

2. This site is designed with extremely aggressive automated anti-spam measures.  It is possible that your email or IP address has been blacklisted by one of the spam-prevention databases our site automatically checks with every time you log in or place an ad on the ads list, in order to prevent bad guys from spamming our site.

Please contact the HOA if you are a registered user and are having difficulty logging into the site.
