Calendar Enhancement - Input Needed - Pledges

I understand that, I have been following calendar upgrade posts for a few years now. Nothing ever seems to come of them. I just want to say that I will gladly pay the $300.00 plus what ever I will need to pay to make sure the mods that I will need to allow visitors to add events to the calendar are included. I would be willing to put the funds in some sort of escrow account to be held until the work is finished.

okay
I just wanted to reiterate that I'm in for two large and I just sent it to Dirk as he directed. Sorry I haven't been able to keep up with the thread as I was on vacation for two weeks, had a weeks worth of class and my wife just had a baby -- so I'm out again. I hope this project takes off. It sounds like it will. Thanks again. Paul 8)

I have a small test-site up. Send me a PM for the link. (Include your email address and I'll just add you to the site if I have the time.) I don't want too many people hitting it just yet. First run of RSVPs is ready.

Just wanted to mention that so far I have received 2 (two) payments for this bounty. Needless to say that the resulting amount is nowhere near Joe's asking price ...

bye, Dirk

This is disappointing. Very few folks have asked to get into the test site, too. I realize August is like vacation month in Europe but I didn't think that would cause folks to go completely away. Haven't seen posts by several of the more vocal pledge makers in a while.

Well I'm back from vacation. Joe can you mail me the link.


Guy's lets get your donations to Dirk. If you have to back out (I hope not) just let us know so we are not waiting around for it. We need a couple more big pledgers to step up to the plate and donate.

Thanks

I just sent my pledge albeit its only small, and to conform my commitment to this I will double the pledge upon completion as sort of a bonus for JM

I'm back on the thread. Let me figure out how to get my donation to Dirk since I guess that's what we've decided.

Send payment to Dirks account at PayPal

Dirk, can we have a total so far of pledges, including and pending ones that PayPal has notified you about?

Joe, I was thinking we should keep this thread for pledge info and use your forum on your site to track bugs and talking about features (like you have started to do).

That was my plan. And I'm also going to use this thread to shout out to you guys to come visit the test site when there's new stuff to see. This works both to drive you guys to the test site and as a teaser to the rest of the readers.

For example, reminders will be going live soon so make sure you've signed up to receive them. Currently, I'm forcing them all to go to my email but soon I'll change the "To:" back to your user email addresses.

Also, new to most folks is the RSVP section no longer takes up so much screen real estate. The RSVP form and the list of attendees now share that same part of the screen with a link to switch between views.

Finally, if you haven't, go to the site and answer the polls. (Although, now I get the feeling all the poll answers will eventually be "make it a config option."Wink

At the moment, I have 3 pledges (one not cleared yet) for a total of $270.

Common people. Where are all the big money guys now? Everyone wants this thing yesterday -- and now that it's time to put up everyone is silent. Joe is working on the product currently and doing a fine job. Tex? Samstone? tt0ne? Tt0ne I know you want it sooner, but where are you going to get it sooner? I think it's time for all the people with all of the requirements to step up -- and bring your wallet. :helpme:

I'm not a big money guy after being unemployed for 3 1/2 years but I'll be receiving about $100 the end of Aug which will go to Dirk for this bounty.

Hey guys it's nearing the end of the month now, I hope we have had a few more donations. Joe's got the test calendar site up and is working away at the feature list.

Dirk what's are total including pending transactions?

I will send a deposit of $100.00 to Dirk tomorrow or wednesday. I will still send another $200.00 but I would like to wait until I see the calendar working.

Disappointing but I won't panic for at least a few more weeks.

There's a new update on the test website. I hope the interested parties will go and look. You'll also get a sneak peak at my latest plugin: tags.

Tags allows users to add arbitrary tags to stories (and now events). The only important missing feature at the moment is search. Making a tag cloud was fun to code. The public beta should be tar'd up and ready to roll Friday or Saturday.

The tags sound nice! How do you choose them for stories? And if you choose, say, Geekloging, will it say "hey, there's already a tag called Geeklog, click here to stick to it instead of Geekloging"?

Maybe you should get Mark to use your plugin for Media Gallery's non clickable tags. Like maybe if Media Gallery sees your plugin is active, it will make its tags clickable by using your plugin.
