A yellow flag appearing to the left of an event marked "Currently Looking For Participants" or "Recruitment Closed" indicates that you are currently registered as a participant for that event
In addition to the event types mentioned above, FINAL FANTASY XI official events and version update/maintenance information is also displayed on the calendar.

Registering a new event
Clicking on on the community calendar for a community you are a member of will take you to the "New Event Registration" screen.

Registering "Looking For Participants" events
If you would like to make an announcement about your event and recruit participants at the same time, click "Looking For Participants" from the top of the "New Event Registration" screen.

Click "Confirm" and "Register" after configuring all of the above to register the event on the calendar. If you set the Event Display Settings to "Display on World Portal (public)," the event information will be displayed in "Linkshell Event Information" on the World Portal.
Registering "Event Announcements"
If you would like to make an announcement about your event without recruiting any participants, click "Event Announcement" from the top of the "New Event Registration" screen.
Since you cannot recruit people with an event announcement, there is no recruiting period or preferred number of participants.
Also, please note that comment display settings for event announcements are different from "Looking for Participants" events.
By enabling comments for a new event at the time of registration, logged-in users can view and post comments regarding strategies and personal opinions.
For "Looking for Participants" events, at the time of registration, you can configure whether only logged-in participants can post and view comments or whether all logged-in users can post and view comments.
For "Event Announcements," at the time of registration, you can select to either enable or disable comments.
When registering to participate in an event, each participant can register his or her participant details.
On the "Participant Details" screen, you can configure your main job and support job for the event, as well as enter a participant comment. By clicking "Confirm" and then "Participate," you can complete registration while setting your participant details at the same time. Because participant job information and participant comments are treated as part of an event, they are shown to other users according to "Event Display Settings" instead of "Comment Display Settings."
Also, once you have set your participant details, you can edit them with the "Participant Details Editor" which can be accessed by clicking on "Edit" to the lower right of the participant details list.
All participant job information and participant comments can be viewed by clicking on "Details" in the "Participant" section of an event's details.
