I’ve been a little bit absent from the board in recent weeks (I hate it when obligations get in the way!), but I continue to provide assistance as time allows, so the more people we have who give even just a little of their time, the easier it will be to stay on top around here.
With the upcoming introduction of Genesis 2.0, I think they’ll be a surge of new users around here!

Very interesting stuff. I’ve been answering questions for quite awhile now. I enjoy helping people.
I’d like to offer a different angle on this. If an economist were involved in this conversation, they would most likely bring up incentives. People need incentives to do things.
Getting volunteers to do things is always tricky. In my community, I’ve done some volunteer work, and I can think of a couple cases where the head of the volunteer organization would browbeat people to try to get them to do his bidding. Remarkable, and they would lose people frequently, including me. There wasn’t even a pay incentive to get people to stay; that’s how tyrants keep staff in a bad economy.
Though I’ve done hundreds of posts and answers here, if a questioner is rude, I won’t touch it. Since I’m not getting paid, that’s a price I charge for my help – simple courtesy.
Asking people to give back to their community is certainly a viable thing to do, and it’s the norm in volunteer scenarios. But it’s what an economist would call a weak incentive. I wonder if stronger incentives may be interesting and fun? Many sites and organizations offer prizes and bounties. If that’s been done at Studiopress, I’ve never seen it. It could be fun, and as far as I know, some people actually enjoy fun.
Then again, I suppose that this might require some work to set up, and there may not be enough hands on deck to handle what they already have going.
But it’s a thought, anyway.

I’ve benefited greatly by the answers/advise of many of the moderators and members of the SP forums and would like to help others by taking up the Challenge.
I’m not a formally trained coder, but have managed to learn a lot around here.
I’ll do my best to help when I can.

I will take you up on the challenge too! I learned SOOO much through the old forums and I really value this as a place to learn and share our knowledge. I hope this community grows into the same sort of knowledge-base like the old forums. If I see a question that I know I can answer, I will certainly do so!

Hi anitac and everyone i am facing some problems when trying to integrate the facebook like page on my backcountry theme.
I go on this page https://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/plugins/like-box/ i write the address page and copy paste the code and it works, the only problem is that I can see the facebook like box on safari but when i open mozilla or google chrome I cannot see it anymore. I would like to know how come it is giving me this kind of problem, as far as I am concerned it should work on each and every one!.September 18, 2013 at 1:58 am #63146
