ClassicPress has, and always will be, a community-led project. My goal from the outset was to create a structure where democracy rules and no single person could change the direction of ClassicPress without oversight and checks and balances. It is therefore with great pleasure that I announce the appointment of three new Directors to ClassicPress…

Congratulations! All three of you deserve it! Nobody can argue against Wade’s activeness in the community, Michelle’s dedication to brand and marketing and James’ codewizardry. :wink:

Just want to take a quick second to thank all of you for your work. I am the owner of a business in the middle of NOWHERE. Getting someone, to hire, that knows even a little about website’s is almost impossible. Found a few promising candidates, but thought it might be easier for the to learn a simple Vim along side me and a quick system program. Well, went to the other website, couldn’t even read anything. EVERY 20 seconds a popup “Call us now”. As a “REAL” business owner, this is my income. I WOULD NEVER put a potential customer through that. Then I find out about this fork. What a refreshing experience. You subjected myself to none of that. Kudos. All you need now , is a donate button!!!

@Stuach Great to have you here!

I know this feeling well! It took us three hiring attempts in the area (each time increasing the radius - on the final attempt we made it a remote job) to find a good candidate!

We have one, but it is kind of on the current site, but on the new site it will be much more visible!

I am no young man by any means. 69yo this August. I thank the military for teaching me everything I know. But, I eat this stuff up. I live for it. You just made my life so much better, you will probably never realize.
