#1763 new enhancement

Create front-end design for "adopt-me"

Description

Once a plugin has been marked as "adopt-me" (see ticket #1762), we need to show something on the front-end so visitors know the plugin is looking for a new owner.

I suggest a banner similar to the green localization banner (but probably another color) with text similar to:

The plugin developer has indicated that they are no longer developing this plugin. If you're interested in adopting this plugin, please email plugins@….

@ipstenu: Does that sound good?

Purple. I say purple.

Blue - waiting approval
green - approved and needs updated
red - you been bad
purple - Love me!

@mordauk do you have any thoughts? You did this more recently that I did (adoption).

Is there a way to search for plugins with the Adopt-me tag? It would be great for developers, but also to find one to test this with. (When I did a search on the directory, the ones shown didn't have the tag.)
Would it make sense to indicate the Adopt-me status in the summary card, or just on the plugin's page?

Let's not add more information to plugin cards. Plugins tagged with Adopt Me can be found at https://wordpress.org/plugins/tags/adopt-me/

Adding links to taxonomy pages is currently not very scalable though, so that is probably the biggest hurdle I see

Tags in general should be more exposed on the Plugin Directory! I didn't know how to get there...
Clicking on a plugin with that tag, I see no indication yet of the Adopt Me status. I agree that it could be a banner similar to the translation banner, but I think it should be prominent on the Development portion of the plugin page. The tag itself could be colored for more attention, also.
It could be a ribbon diagonally across the upper corner of the plugin portion of the page, or just something on the Development tab link.

Replying to joyously:

Looks like the adopt-me plugins all say that on their front page, in the first sentence of the description copy.

Agree that it should also occur on the dev page, possibly with more specific discussion of what maintaining that plugin might entail.

Some plugins are mostly just style changes; a competent front-ender could probably take them on. Others need full REST API and/or other advanced dev support for cron jobs, JSON, you name it - things that are just words to me but daily life to full-stack folks.

And definitely needs some sort of meaningful imagery that shows up in several places ... will Slack some thumbs.
