Updated Credits

Each release cycle, we try to recognize those core contributors who’ve made the greatest impact, ramped up the quickest, and/or been the most reliable.

In the Contributing Developers category, mainstays Sergey Biryukov, Dominik Schilling (Ocean90), and Cristi Burcă (Scribu) are joined by Aaron Campbell and Helen Hou-Sandi. Aaron has been contributing for several years, but his work this cycle on improvements to custom headers stood out. Helen, who was a Recent Rockstar in 3.3, stepped up with improvements to the theme screen, UI/CSS fixes, and general helpfulness as fixes of all sorts were made through the later stages of the cycle.

The Recent Rockstars section is mainly aimed at recognizing newer contributors and/or contributors who’ve been around for awhile casually but have recently increased their involvement. In this category, Amy Hendrix worked (with Aaron Campbell) on the improvements to custom headers with great success. George Stephanis worked on css and improving the mobile experience. Stas Sușkov contributed to the thinking behind HTML captions, a feature that has been waiting patiently on Trac for years. Max Cutler and Marko Heijnen both worked on updating aspects of XML-RPC, and Kurt Payne contributed to dozens of tickets including the refactoring of admin-ajax.php.

Thank you all for your increased efforts, and congratulations on having your picture in the credits!

What’s Your Name?

It’s that time in the release cycle, folks… credits! Here is a recycle of the post telling you to update your name for the credits screen. 🙂

Did you have at least one props on a commit in 3.4? If so, you’re listed on the Credits screen in the WP dashboard.* In the listing, your name links to your wordpress.org profile. Some people are shown as their real names, while others show as their trac/.org usernames. Now, if you’re all about the alias and you go by your trac/irc handle everywhere and want to keep it that way, that’s fine. But, if you would like people (curious users, colleagues, potential clients or employers, etc) to see your real name, all you have to do is add it to your profile.

Note 1: You may say, “But my username is my name, just without spaces and capital letters/a last name.” You’re still on the list, because it’s in username format.

Note 2: You may say, “Yes, I would really like people who google my real name to find my WP profile, but within the community, everyone knows me as my username. Quandry!” Not really. Take a page from some of the other people in your situation and put your username in parenthesis after your last name. In the coming year we’ll be making improvements to the profiles section, and having an optional way to display your username will hopefully be added.

Below is a list of everyone is the 3.4 credits that is listed by username rather than regular name. If you see your username on this list, click on it to go to your wordpress.org profile. Log in. Edit links will appear. Click the one in the top section that controls name and description, put your real name in the Name field, and save it. Voil , your real name will show up on the credits page.

The names and profile links from credits.php will be pulled into the release post. Many of you haven’t updated your display name, so you should go do that: https://wordpress.org/support/profile/your-name/edit/.

A few days after release, I’ll update the release post for posterity purposes with any new display names.
