    Another Review-In: March 3, 2012 

    The community clamors for more and who are we to say no. That being said, we will be having another review-in on Saturday March 3, 2012.

    Brings your coffee, your bacon, and your wits because as they say “two outta three ain’t bad” … so lets have some fun and take a run at the Theme Review Queues.

    … and don’t forget to log into the IRC channel #wordpress-themes, too.

    WPTRT IRC Review-In: Saturday 28 Jan 11 

    As proposed by a few of the Theme Review Team members, the WPTRT will try something new tomorrow: an all-day IRC Theme Review-In!

    As Amy Hendrix describes:

    The model I have in mind is https://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_Bug_Hunts

    • This isn’t a meeting with an agenda: it’s a group work day. Drop in for as long as you’re available, and get as many reviews done as you can during that time.
    • The goal is to crunch through as much of the queue as possible while helping and learning from our peers.
    • All reviewers, however new or experienced, can bring questions about how to handle particular issues. Absolutely no penalties for admitting you’re stuck ūüėČ
    • Themers, you’re welcome to join in the discussion, try your hand at¬†reviewing, or just lurk and learn the process. However, please *don’t*¬†use this time to ask about when your own theme will be done — we’re¬†taking everything in queue order, and we’d most likely just encourage¬†you to sign on to review a few themes.
    • For new or potential reviewers, more experienced people will try to¬†help out as much as we can with getting started, working with trac,¬†setting up your test environment and the like.

    So, that’s our model. The “official” start time will be 1700 UTC / 12:00 noon EST; however, if you’d like to start earlier, please feel free! Whomever is available will hang out at the #wordpress-themes IRC channel. Our goal will be to clear out the Priority #2 queue entirely. (The Priority #2 queue currently stands at 100, so this is a very big goal! However, if every person with Theme-Trac ticket privileges completes one review, we will almost entirely wipe out the queue.)

    We’ll see how this goes, and assuming it goes well, we will try to make these a regular occurrence.

    Come and join us!

      I’m having issues with my ticket privileges so I’ve written to Otto.

      However, I will be on the IRC channel to help out in any way that I can.

      Question: How do I join in? I’d really like to help over the weekend. :)

        Glad to have more people want to join in – feel free to get onto the IRC channel to help out. There’s always a need for more volunteers.

      When is the next WPTRT IRC Review-In? The last one had several tickets being closed.
