Servers admins have posted a thread concerning the use of Dynamis calendar. As far as I know, I do not know a place where people openly post their schedule. I wonder would that be a good idea to start.

May be:

http://www.dynamiscalendar.com/viewforum.php?f=8

is a good place to start?

It's a good start, and I haven't really heard of much drama on Cerberus regarding scheduling problems.

Take that with a grain of salt though, all of our events are pretty late for most groups, they'd be finished before we even went to enter, and we held off of doing anymore Dynamis until this price decrease was implemented.

This would be an invaluable resource, however ... I can think of 3-4 Linkshells (maybe more) that would just use this tool as a way to identify what time they'd need to be on in order to "gank" a zone from another LS.

My LS usually does Dynamis at a time that does not often conflict with other LSs, but there is a LS or two that enter a couple hours before we do. The best advice I can give is to build a relationship with the leadership of shells competing for Dynamis zones and be flexible in your own scheduling.

With the coming changes, I can see Dynamis getting crowded again, especially Xarcabard, so just keep your info to yourself and do your best to coordinate with other LSs, that's all I can say. >.>

I think I know which LSs you may be referring to. The way Dynamis calendar works is to player self policing themselves, and use peer pressure to make others to join in. Not sure if those LSs will be bow to peer pressure (those LSs think they are THE peer pressure to begin with:P).

One thing for sure, as Furion said that I have not heard people trying to ninja sneak in another group for a long time. Most LSs do schedule their Dynamis around to avoid conflict, which is a good thing. So the Dynamis calendar becomes a more "official" thing in avoiding conflict. Anyway, I do not know people will still pull of ninja sneak in just to prevent another group to entry. You never really know, especially Dynamis entry fee is going to be reduced. The reduction of entry fee will even encourage more legit low men farming teams to go in.
