Priority Queue for Good Theme Authors

Description

Priority queue for theme authors who have had less than 5 issues in their last theme review and they would be removed if they have more than 5 issues in a review. The number of theme authors on the list may be small in the beginning but this will be a goal for theme authors to work to and provide additional motivation to make sure the themes are up to standard.

As to the implementation the ticket assignment button would first assign a ticket from the priority queue if there are no themes left then move to the next queue.

The list of theme authors who are added to the list should be able to be changed easily without needing a code change unless someone is willing to update the list in the code every two weeks.

The code for the assignment button can be found below.

                        $next_ticket = $this->trac->ticket_query( 'priority=new theme&priority=previously reviewed&status=new&keywords=!~buddypress&order=time&max=1&owner=' );
                        if ( $next_ticket === array() ) {
                                return false;
                        } elseif ( $next_ticket === false ) {
                                return new WP_Error;
                        }

I'd close this as we have implemented the trusted authors and the results are debatable as to how efficient this is.

@williampatton @kafleg, thoughts?

Yes, we can close this for now.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

After trials of a similar idea I do not think that any farther pursuit of preferential queues will work long term.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
