It’s been a while since our last update.
As you may have read somewhere, we’ve switched jobs. And that usually means quite a big mess to our usual routines and timelines, but it’s all for the better. But of course, this also comes with a trade-off: our time is now severely limited. We’ve tried to adapt and tried to keep up with your comments and requests, but we’re still currently undermanned. We’ve discussed this over a couple a days and here’s what we’re going to do in the coming days:
- We’ll still update icons every season. We seem to have kicked it off well and we’re not going to stop doing this. Along with this, we’ll also release icon packs for requests that have been gathered over time. Which brings us to the next one…
- We’ll publish icon requests along with the seasonal releases, or in incremental updates over time. We’ll release them in packs or in sets along with other requests, so keep your eyes peeled. We usually publish what’s included in the packs anyway, so you’ll not get lost in the coming updates. For requests, please either post them in the latest release post, or send them in via the contact form. We’ll collect these and try to add them in the next pack, so it will take time to post. To save time, please check and download the Latest Full Pack which usually accompanies the latest post; you may never know if the item is already there!
- We’re considering opening up slots for contributors. Since the site’s pretty much a not-for-profit one, we don’t necessarily have a budget to pay writers or creatives to keep the site updated. We’re still unsure about the specifics at the moment, so if you’re interested just tag along in our fanpage and we’ll ping you once we’re done.
- Comments will be open and free-for-all. We set the comments to require approval before they appear, but given our schedules this isn’t something we’re up for. We’re considering re-opening them and sticking our guns with the spam detectors, but that’s for a discussion some other time. For now, we’ll keep the comment threads open, so you can instantly see your requests. We might consider allowing SSO federation with WordPress.com to allow more secure commenting; we’ll finalize this and see what we can do in the next few days.
Anyway, that’s that. If you guys have comments and suggestions just let us know in the comments section below. 🙂
