The majority of events that we publish are not free events, it would be really nice if there was a way to change this default so that price doesn't appear in a published event unless we manually add in a price. As of now, they automatically say "Free Event" unless we "unclick" it. If we don't know the price of an event, we usually prefer to leave it blank - but since the price default has been changed to automatically say "Free", lots of events are slipping through the cracks and showing up as "free" even though they are not actually free. It has become kind of a headache for our team.
We released this a while ago. Now the default is "Do not display" tickets and cost info.
