Caught wind of some backlash that I hadn’t considered in regards to WordPress removing sponsored themes from it’s Theme Viewer (upwards of 2,100 and counting removed).
Apparently many theme authors are being caught off guard.
What I am taking issue with is … today, after checking the WordPress Theme Viewer site, I found all but one of my themes were deleted … without warning … without the opportunity to update my themes to comply with the new policies, which I would have done … and without the ability to even login once I heard of the new policies.
Again, I hadn’t even thought about this side of the story. This is really too bad, especially for the authors out there like Cory. He’s a good friend of mine and someone that has done a lot for the WordPress community.
Hey Cory: I’ll host ’em!
