The WordPress Theme Review team is welcoming Justin Tadlock as an admin. Justin is signing on to help with the final audits of new themes that have been approved during the review process.
Creator of Theme Hybrid and co-author of Professional WordPress Plugin Development, Tadlock knows WordPress theming inside and out. His expertise will be a valuable addition to the Theme Review admin team.
Join the Ranks of the WordPress Theme Review Team
Submissions to the WordPress Theme Directory are on the rise. Chip Bennett reports that over the past four months, the Theme Review Team has averaged over 80 new themes approved per month. Add that number to the 300 updates per month for existing themes in the directory and you can see that the team carries quite a load.
The Theme Review Team now has more than 100 reviewers, but they’re always looking for more. Wondering what theme reviewers do all day? Superstar reviewer Emil Uzelac gave us a behind-the-scenes look in A Day in the Life of a WordPress Theme Reviewer. These volunteers are serious about standards and stand as the gate keepers to the WordPress Theme Directory. They ensure that every theme listed at WordPress.org follows best practices and is safe for you to download. If you’d like to volunteer, check out the How To Join WPTRT page on WordPress.org for more information.
