It sounds like you have a mistaken impression about the nature of these forums. Almost everyone on these forums is simply a user like yourself. On this calendar forum there are a couple of developers who have been participating fairly frequently but for the most part (and this includes aebrown) posters are just users expressing their own opinions and trying to help each other figure out ways to find solutions given the software as it stands.bgtaylor4 wrote:You best understand and can evaluate those needs to which resources should be directed. I sustain you, or at least those who hired you and therefore you, in making those wise decisions.
Although there are a couple of calendar developers on this forum who may see your feedback, my understanding is that policy changes like you're suggesting are decided on at higher level than just the developers. Generally those decisions are made by the product managers and general authorities with responsibility for these areas. They are probably more likely to see your feedback if you submit it using the Feedback link on the main lds.org page.bgtaylor4 wrote: This is a feedback blog/board. My feedback is that we have chosen broad access in distributing a powerful tool into the hands of the untrained masses within a ward or stake over access by trained/called individuals. Certainly there, too, are many benefits. But a downside as well.

I don't think you should consider any of the responses here as condescending. We're all at the same level as you and different people in different situations may have different opinions and should be able to express them here as well.
