I feel really sad about the bad reviews, especially from people who were using GCalendar for years. You hear nothing from them in all the time, they are using our products for free and at the end they slap you with a bad review here. I admin, that we are going a new direction. All the amazing new features which are possible in the free version of DPCalendar could have never been realized with GCalendar. That's not a marketing quote, but a statement from me, laoneo, the guy who started GCalendar over seven years ago.
Yes we stopped to give out support for free in a forum (at the end of the day also we have to pay our bills and salaries). But at the same time we are providing a top notch support to our subscribers as you can see in the paid listing reviews. Many extension providers are doing it that way.
To hear all of that is very frustrating for me and our team.....I really hope for a better time with our free users, as I don't want to shut down the free version just because of disrespect. We believe in open source and want to give something back to the community for free.
