I love Gamipress. It does exactly what I need it to do. And the support is very, very good. Friendly and fast. There's not a very robust user community out there that I can find. Well, I can't find any community at all, actually, which is a disadvantage, but that's certainly not Gamipress's fault. My only complaint about Gamipress concerns the documentation. While extensive, the documentation was written in English by someone who does not know English well. There are errors in about 90% of the sentences, so it is very, very difficult to understand. You have to guess at what the writer meant, and if things don't work the way you expect, you have to think about what else the writer may have meant and try again. It's tedious and frustrating. With enough trial and error, one can figure it all out, but I've wasted several days trying to resolve problems that could have been easily fixed had the documentation been clearly written. To their credit, when I brought a language error to the attention of Gamipress, they did change the wording in that part of the doumentation, but they really need to have someone who is an expert in English to rewrite their documentation entirely, because that one error is just one of many hundreds of errors. Other than that, Gamipress is fantastic.

This is the first time I'm leaving a plugin review but I feel it's well deserved. Ruben has got to be the best and most responsive developer I had the pleasure of coming across. The guy really takes pride in this plugin and for a free one, that's just unheard of. Thanks Ruben, really appreciate your help. -Projectgarden87
