meh, doesnt group calendar already do all of this, probably better? yet another example of blizz ripping off and add on from the community. at least it will help a calendar system become more ubiquitous.

Gah, I hate when people say this.Mods are written *for* WoW, it makes sense for popular addons to become part of the main UI. It's one of the reasons why WoW is successful.I don't know why people get all self-righteous about it.I mean, God forbid Blizz actually add something people might use...

i dunno about addon designers, but if i were one, i think having my addon be basically accepted by blizz and added to the default ui would be kind of an honor or at least i wouldnt get angry about it. it would just mean that i was so awsome that so many people were using my addon that blizz thought they should just supply it by default. but thats just me personally.

When Blizzard incorporates the features of an add-on into the core, I'd consider this a great compliment. It's also a credit to the architecture and community that 3rd-party add-ons (or their capabilities, anyway) are conceived, developed, improved upon in the open, so they can eventually be incorporated..So in this case, someone outside Blizz perceived a gap, and set about to solve it. Blizz eventually took notice and is working to close the gap in their core solution..There are probably still some gaps, and will continue to be for some time, between the functionality Blizz offers and what the add-on community does..But when that gap closes (partially or completely), the add-on developers can focus on other problems, and help us (the users and Blizz!) make the overall solution better..Bravo, GroupCalendar! Bravo, Blizz!
