Theme Review Team Could Use Some More Reviewers

The Theme Review Team tried something new this past weekend. Members of the review team that could make it, spent all day in IRC to review themes stuck in the Priority 2 queue which lists themes that have been stuck in the review process for more than two weeks. While the goal was to clear the queue, the last time I checked the number of themes was around 81. Some of the themes have been in the review process for over 6 weeks. Browsing through the queue, I even noticed two themes submitted by Automattic. One was called Duotone which has been in the queue for 5 weeks with Bouquet coming in at 6 weeks. Just goes to show that Automattic doesn’t receive preferential treatment when it comes to the review process.

If you would like to see themes get through the review process faster, please consider joining the theme review team. As a theme author, you can also help make the review process go faster by ensuring that your theme meets the following guidelines.

  1. Clearing the Priority #2 Queue was a very lofty goal; and, although we did not achieve that goal we did achieve one I was hoping for: getting noticed more by the WordPress community.

    Obviously the more reviewers the faster the theme review turn-around … so, if this type of “Theme Day” will help get more community members involved and interested in giving back then we will be more than happy to continue with them.
