bnkdpst You shouldn't discourage input. Good suggestions can come from anyone. It would be very unfortunate and probably affect Scirra's bottom line if users of the free version felt they couldn't make suggestions on the forum without being told to go buy it.
I know man :), and I'm sorry you interpreted that way. Just like I said, I meant not to offend or discourage, though I think users should look for a work around before asking to Ashley "hey, do what I say, I need this!"... I've been doing some free volunteer work with graphic design, and some people just don't understand that they need to cooperate too, it's not really like I can solve all their problems (and believe me, most of then can be solved by themselves). Feedback is always a positive thing, but we shouldn't put the blame on the developers because one can't find a way to do or organize his/her work. And I'm not talking directly to the author of the post, just as an example, earlier today someone was saying here in the forums, "hey, C2 sound system is crap", but he or she didn't even try to understand how it works.
And I didn't mean you can't send requests/opinions/feedback if you're using the free version, I'm currently using it myself, though I'm aware of it's minor limitations such as layers amount, so I won't complain about it. These guys work as hard as they can, the least I can do is support their work, and buying a licence is some sort of support too. You can't blame the government (or any other entity) for not finding a job if all you do is sit on a chair and scratch your balls all day long <img src="smileys/smiley17.gif" border="0" align="middle" />
