Hi Tammie,

I agree. I've only managed a couple of reviews so far and have kind of being winging it as I go along. I've made a couple of errors along the way, part of the learning curve I guess, like closing tickets too soon. Luckily this has been cleared up in recent messages so know what I'm doing now.

I didn't think it was easy to find details of how to get started, the process and the correct format reviews should be delivered when first starting out. I relied (and still do) on Chip's write up from 2011. This said to close the ticket, not mentioning allowing for a developer response, hence my mistake first time around.

I think there's great help out there if you can find it, but an up to date, central hub for the theme review process and some solid guidelines & resources would really help, especially on Contributor days so new theme reviewers can quickly & easily get to grips with the process in the few hours they have together with other reviewers.

Once I have a few more reviews under my belt, I would happily volunteer some of my time to help work on such a resource alongside any other volunteers.

See you at the Manchester WordCamp & contributor day hopefully.
