If you need support, go to the forums. If you want to help make Support awesome, stay here.
If your comment is for support, it will be deleted. If it looks like spam, it will be deleted. Sorry, but there’s no other way to keep up with things.
The section Your WordPress on the forums might have made sense at the beginning when few of us were using WordPress, but now that it’s so popular, there are better avenues for someone to “Strut their stuff” and get feedback.
These days this section contains mostly spammers and moderators tend to give that section less attention. In my opinion, this section is not worth keeping, but I may have not considered something.
Care to voice your opinion filling out the survey and/or leaving a comment?
Only twelve (thirteen if I count the one that I don’t even know what he’s asking…). If you can jump in and help out, remember to link to trac and mark the ticket resolved if there’s a trac ticket
ETA : Nine moar!
Hi support team. I would like to include Support in our Gnome participation this summer if there are any applicants interested in working in the forums etc over the summer. @ipstenu and/or other experienced team members: Head over to http://codex.wordpress.org/Gnome_Summer_Program_for_Women#Support and fill in project ideas (optional, I made a default idea that basically covers answering questions and beefing up support docs) and info on whoever from this team is willing/able to mentor an intern (ideally we put more than one mentor with each student so the time commitment isn’t too heavy). No idea yet how many student slots we’ll get.
Posts in Alpha/Beta that need help either solving or triaging. Once we have a trac ticket that’s accepted and picked up for a bug, we can mark the post as resolved (since we don’t expect to debug more in the forums).
Anything that isn’t ‘resolved’ is fair game
This post is the DRAFT of my regular forum sticky for new WP releases. What I’m hoping is people will chime in with important factoids I’m missing. The ‘—-’ breaks indicate separate posts. I do them that way so each section is easier to edit and add content down the line.
Remember that the sticky is a LIVING post. While it will be closed, mods and admins can edit it and add more data as it comes to light. In fact, I totally encourage that. Don’t bother asking if you can, if you have the access and you know that something’s missed, just add it in!
WordPress 3.6-Beta has landed for @andrea_r‘s birthday.
PLEASE test I will send you cookies.
We’ll probably go over, but we’re moving BACK an hour thanks to DST in the US and the others who asked if we could
See you tomorrow!
I’ve cleaned up the forum moderator/admin list.
Of the lof, 24 out of 25 were absent 12+ months, even a bunch of Automatticians, who are (yes) members now. Custom titles are applied where appropriate.
Everyone gets the 30-second thinf removed, since you were trusted once, we still trust ya a lot Ditto Akismet Always Trust.
Let me know…
IMO if you only post once a month, and you still help out, there’s no reason to dump you unless you go postal over people and need time out The next round of picking new admins and mods will start with the 3.6 release. How do you get picked? Be active, be helpful, don’t lose your blob. Showing some initiative is always good, knowing when someone’s trolling is great. Most of the time, we start with you as a mod, which is limited, but when you’re a super star, that lasts as long as how annoyed I get having to block users for you.
What? You thought this was an exact science?
If you think someone should be an awesome mod (or shouldn’t be one anymore), feel free to ping me publicly or privately, as you see fit. I trust your judgements!
A recent comment relating to using media in WordPress that you might find interesting.
People seemed to like the idea when I pitched it. Can we pick a weekend to do it? Having at least 2 weeks notice would be good so people can clear time in schedules, read up on docs if they want, etc. Maybe weekend of February 15?
