Approved Roomevents alias

Especially for the longer roomevent names, whenever one is using /roomevents view, it might be helpful to make aliases for those roomevents so the staff don't need to type out the full name and instead can use said aliases.

There is already an /events alias by the looks of it - is that short enough, are you do also want an alias like /re (which is potentially too valuable to give)?

I think they more meant have an alias for the particular roomevent, akin to rfaq aliases. So say you have a roomevent called aReallyLongEventName, you could add an alias long so that /events view long would be the same as /events view aReallyLongEventName

i support the above wholeheartedly; it's a pain to type out !events view randbats workshop in Rands every time we want to advertise our next Workshop event. It'd be really cool if we could add aliases to our roomevents so that the commands for actually displaying them could be less than 30 characters long.

I've told people informally but I'm fine with this being a thing, though I dont know the best way to logistically implement this (including how we store the aliases in the data). If someone has a better idea than me I'm 100% on board though.
