Nomination for team reps 2024 edition (Final Call)

We’ve only 2 days left for the themes team representative 2024 nomination. If you haven’t been nominated yet, do it. Till now @acosmin, @shivashankerbhatta, and @kafleg have been nominated. And they are the team representative for 2023 as well.

:three:Requirements for the settings/onboarding functionality

The themes team is currently working on creating requirements. This additional requirement will be applied to those who want to start developing an onboarding process from within the theme.

So far, we have a rough draft of the requirements. You can check the document and add your feedback. We’ll show you the final requirements in the next meeting. Our next meeting will be January 9, 2024.

@greenshady and @acosmin said that the Ollie theme dashboard can be a good reference for those who want to add an onboarding process. But there is something that needs to be removed.

:four:  The year 2023 review

The themes team would like to thank everyone who is directly or indirectly involved with the themes team.

@kafleg and @acosmin will write a detailed post of the 2023 recap.

:five:Open Floor

@kafleg asked, What’s your plan for the new year, and what commitment you are going to make for the new year?

@greenshady said he will work on more theme handbook work. And he added “the new Theme Handbook chapters were my biggest accomplishment. That, and I’m down 2 pants/trouser sizes and 1 shirt size.”

A summary of the theme handbook stuff is here.

For 2 different topics that Justin asked for like and dislike, everyone liked and supported it. More detailed information is here.
