WOW on all the activity and the result!!!! Good to see there are so many
“fans” of EC3, and Alex kudos to you for the great work and investment. Good
also to know from Rick the shortfalls of the WP Event Calendar.


I think I have mentioned that my company is on a shoestring right now, but I
really see this plugin as an asset to my co., and will donate once the site
is up (and to Alex once I am in the black—I’ll put a post-it up on my desk
;). In addition, with wordpress mu and WP’s incredible potential in the
social network space, I think the plugin be both popular and possibly
lucrative. It’s very conceivable that a custom services business could be
built as well.


Call me a geek, but I’m so excited! We need a “fans of EC3” facebook page!

Assuming you mean this one:  http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-events/

there are a LOT of issues, the largest being that EC3 at its base thinks
about POSTS and events _ARE_ posts.  wp-events does not.  Events are utterly
seperate from posts.  Philosophically that's not the way I think a WP events
system should go.  

I have a similar issue with the various events plugins that link to Ical or
Google Calendar.  Why post SOMEWHERE ELSE?   I want to do my work in WP. 

EC3 "feels right" to me.

Guys,  I wonder if we have enough interest to seriously consider a fork of
this...  EC3BC or some such. 

What about the simple and direct WP Events Plugin?

Who would be up to be on a committee to put together a NEW   EC3BC blog site
and host the patched version?
