Earlier on today I was thinking itd be nice if the in game calendar could sync with Google Calendar(plus Yahoo Calendar etc etc) to show raid dates and upcoming events etc.I think it'd be quite handy. Also would be sweet if you could enter guild chat or whisper somebody without necessarily enterering WOW.

You really think whispering out of game would be a good idea?"Hey (whatever), buy gold now!"

You already can use a feed from the armory and import it into Google calender. They added it awhile back.

Drakkenfyre I think if they used that system their using with battle.net communciation(the one that allows you to talk to somebody cross-realm and in different games) it would eliminate the spam problem. If I have to confirm you as a friend before you can contact me while I am out of game it allows me to select a very narrow amount of people that can potentially whisper me.

Actually, the ingame calandar does sync up with google calandar. copy the rss feed into google and then (make sure its a public calandar) and use googles own tools to repost the calandar. my guild website has a google calandar tied to the guild leaders main character's rss feed. so as long as the guild leader logs into thaf character then the website updates to. down side is the sync can take several hours to several days to filter through, but not a prob if you plan out a few weeks in advance.example: http://drunkenpirateguild.com/calandar.php

You can sync your calendar with Google Calendar... You can filter it for raid resets, instance invites, etc too. If I remember correctly the link is somewhere up the top of your characters page in the armoury...Not so sure about chatting from outside of WoW, but perhaps with the Real ID system we'll get an independent chat client too. Though you would still only be able to chat with your battle.net friends presumably...
