I sort of missed this reply and whatever followed.
I am however wondering now, how do we/did we try to build up activity and with what tools are we/did we trying to build up activity precisely?
Because the thing is:
no fresh data in a dashboard === no fresh nor existing users to build up activity === no refreshing the dashboard widget because waiting for activity build up… …
And I also know, we have averagely 10 votes on each petition, and all of them 10 votes I can name by name without going to look who voted, because its the users who daily interact here.
We aren’t going to get any more votes than that, no matter what we do, and actually I doubt it is a problem not having many votes, the problem rather is that we show “proof of death” in our Dashboard by showing several years old content as the “latest hot stuff”.
What is required to make this happen?
I can see on https://github.com/ClassicPress/ClassicPress/issues/716#issuecomment-917692610 Wade had a question that seems to block the entire process.
I am not sure anyone of us who can help on this.
If we can, please let us know. Perhaps add this to the project list if help is needed.
If not, we still need to get something done about.
If we cannot get it updated, then really I prefer to remove this widget like @Simone suggested.
Possibly as a BUG Fix in the next release (because it de-facto could be considered broken and thus a bug)
What is the opinion of folks who can make this happen on this one?
@wadestriebel, @MattyRob, @James I guess you are the ones with the abilities required? Sorry if there are more, we should if possible resolve this.
Hope it makes sense.
