Theoriginaljordan, this was a great review to see - your introductory sentence here was one we passed around the team, since it's clear you "get it" in a way that some users who are perhaps less familiar with the development cycle might not be :)
We're glad to hear you've found the plugin and the updates that come with it to your liking. I'd love to hear from you if you have any ideas on new features/add-ons that would make this plugin more meaningful to you, please do let us know. You're the type of user we want to make sure we're serving with future iterations of the plugin suite.
Thank again for your praise and support, and for using The Events Calendar.
