Community Customization Reviewing program
« on: June 27, 2012, 12:28:56 PM »
Hello everyone,

We are pleased to announce Community Customization Reviewing. This is a new program that will help the community to get more involved evaluating new mods.

In the past, mod and theme authors submitted their code to the team. The team tried the code out behind the scenes, and explained bugs and performance issues to the mod author.  For some mods, this is a lot of work, takes a lot of time, and there have been many complaints about how slowly the team has been able to review and approve new mods, and about how obscure the process always seemed.

Well, the new program is all about openness. Everyone will be able to see the review process and those who are interested on taking part in will be able to do so. If you want to help review, begin by requesting Group Membership for the Community Customizer group. To learn more about how this works, please see the How this works topic.

The board has been made public to encourage the community to participate. Occasionally, this means we will get some off-topic posts from community members requesting support, new features, release dates, and other stuff like that. But I decided it was important to open the process as much as possible. We can deal with a few off-topic posts.

For more information about Community Customization Review, please read The Community Customization Review process.

Thank you,
Jessica González, Lead customizer.
Look at them. They're just asking for it. Maybe the human race deserves to be wiped out.

To assume is to hope that those who came before had the presence of mind and capacity to implement the dreams of those who would come after.

You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain. It seems you have chosen which, and now I must do the same.

Thank you for all the hard work you put in this program, Suki.

I'm confident that it will make a difference, and it is a difference which matters.

The rewards outweigh the risks and I applaud you for this topic and its intent. Well made decision. Here's to many more! :)

This sounds great, noticed this board and group last week, have applied for it as well as applying the Dream Portal Team into it, but still waiting for approval.  Not sure if it would do any good to post up Dream Portal 1.1 on it, mainly because no modules, or template packages for Dream Portal will be public until Dream Portal is approved.  Therefore, it might be a bit difficult to review for many...  But, in any case, willing to give it a shot.
