Hi Marty!

Thanks for pitching in and helping with Theme reviews!

Before you can assign tickets to yourself, you'll need to be added to the
Reviewers group - but first, you'll need to perform a few reviews, to learn
the process.

In the meantime, you can browse tickets, and can leave comments (which is

To start:

1) Download the .zip file linked from within the Theme. (Hint: add
"?nostats=1" to the end of the .zip file URL.)
2) Run the .zip file through the Theme-Check

4) Add those comments to your review

for Theme approval, and which comments are merely recommendations.
7) At the end of your review, indicate whether you suggest the Theme should
be "Approved" or "Not Approved"

Let us know if you have any questions!

Thanks again,
