After getting real-world experience with my new skin at a clients site, where I had to actually try to find a specific event (theft), I realized how useless the Events page itself was - the little thumbnails did little except provide a link to the lightbox, where the good, usable features were.
So I decided to move the features from the lightbox, into the Events page; something along the lines of an 'event gallery' where the full size image would be playable. This is what I came up with. It is a rough draft, but what do you think?
