213 WP-Tonic Round Table Show Speeding Up Your WordPress Development was last modified: by
  • I’ve just discovered this podcast episode in my backlinks, so sorry for coming late with a comment.

    1. Sorry for not knowing the voice of a speaker, but I’m glad that one of the voices fully understood my main concern: the inconsistent treatment of similar cases.
    If one is allowed to do a thing (and is very close to the admins), then it is weird when other authors/moderators are treated completely different.

    2. Additionally, the comment about people making money to feed their families: well yeah, that’s another point. My family doesn’t want to eat any less than any other family on earth.

    3. And the comment about: “Well, don’t rely just on .org, go hustle your themes on other channels too. Hestia is popular not because of the Popular page.”
    I think this is at least partially wrong and misleading.

    When a certain theme gets free 500-1,500 visitors daily – and I have to “hustle” and somehow earn those extra 1,000 visitors just to be able to compete – that’s not something that most devs can afford.
    You cannot claim that a theme developer getting a steady stream of 20,000 – 50,000 monthly visitors to a single theme will not propel them higher and quicker, and that whatever happens is based ONLY on the quality of the theme itself.

    4. And finally.
    Yes, people are volunteers, as am I.
    But someone has to be responsible for the decisions that can make or break a business. These decisions should not be taken lightly, nor should these decisions be discarded with a simple: “Oh well, we’re just volunteers.”.

    I’m glad that my article generated this amount of interest and attention to the issue and some attempts are made to address it.
