Immediately after setting up the Community Chainwreck event, I thought to myself, is there any good reason why I shouldn't trust the Glorious Trainwrecks community to create sitewide events?

The site runs on Drupal, which I've been, for the most part, pretty impressed and happy with. It's got all kinds of nice plugins which I can just drop in. The only coding I've really done for the site has been to add the special markup for linking wiki pages.
