Saturday, january 11th
hey is there anyone on here who’s a mod on @WordPress.org  who can help me with a pretty serious issue i’m having with a developer and my now reduced access as a result of this
I just want to share my story and screenshots if anyone is able to help I would be so grateful. I had an account with 10 years on wordpress.org  and somehow this developer either got some friend or someone he knows to get me booted unfairly off the platform.  The developer stole our private paid plugin and is now reselling it on his website as his. I have screenshots to back up that he was never given permission to do this.
he agreed to this and then later went totally insane, off the boat, and has done everything you’d never want to have a developer do when hiring them. If he was in America I’d make sure to sue him for the damage he’s done.
Yo
You’d need to tell me your username for me to look at your account, but what people do outside of WordPress.org , we don’t really care about (as in, we won’t act on your account in any way for what is done elsewhere, with some exceptions relating to personal safety) (edited)
@Remy Medranda ^^ what he said. Provide the info and it’ll be handled.
remymedranda
whats really messed up is I’ve been a good role model contributor for over 10 years… and the 1 time I hire this developer and he essentially has what appears to be either money   issues or some bipolar mood swing… he somehow got some mod to get me booted
I see you were informed on January 5th about your account status, and you escalated it beyond that on your own accord.
how is what I did escalation ?
You chose to single out an individual one other social media platforms because you disagreed with the decision taken, that’s not cool.
You attempted to contact the various moderators on other forums, like Facebook and Twitter. That’s not okay.
the community should know how this developer behaved and more so that he’s selling a plugin which I paid him to develop for a private reason and he agreed to not resell it on his site or on wordpress
well i think this is not cool
guy  sends me message that he wills end me video demo and I never even got it
Whatever dispute you have with the developer is a case between yo uand them and your legal counsel, and not a personal vendett arena for WordPress to be a part of :slightly_smiling_face:
got it, but why then would wordpress ban someone who’s been a contributor for 10  years and has never caused a problem  once?
When you single out people and attempt to contact directly, that’s a problem. We deal entirely with volunteers here. Taking it elsewhere and to their personal accounts is what the issue is.
I was cordial with all moderators
never disrespectful
We don’t need all these screenshots, we will not be acting on your personal dispute.
i am extremely aware that everyones is a volunteer
and I would not want to post lies and what was said by that mod, was that I never used the plugin
i’ve been using the plugins for  over a year
 I didn’t pay for this plugin. It was another plugin developed by this developer.
Your review was specifically about a plugin you paid for. (yes, we have everything from the review still)
I have  even provided several very important functions to the developers plugin that he currently offers as Wp Order Splitter
@clorith I deserve  my  account  privileges reinstated,  I have  not violated any terms of service.
You were also informed that you should not persist with the issue at hand, and that if you did, your account would be blocked. After that warning, you took it directly to a moderator over social media instead. Basically you ignored the warnings given.
the moderator  was incorrect
I had reached out to  speak to her privately because i had no other way
she has public accounts
if she doesn’t want to be publicly known on the internet
As for not violating anything, the support guidelines (which are linked to above each new topic written in the forums) specifically state not to contact anyone directly outside of WordPress.org, they’re not terms of service, they are community guideliens for good behavior, and WodPress.org is a private site, and an account can be blocked for any reason, no need for terms of service there :slightly_smiling_face:
The message you received specifically stated if you wished ot discuss the matter, to come in here.
Well I would have not inclined to violate the terms or guidelines
You are making up excuses, and that’s not cool :slightly_smiling_face:
my only intentions were to reach out and clarify  my end of story
as the comments she made were untrue
We have email addresses for discussing these issues, like plugins@wordpress.org and others. You never contact a mod directly on their personal accounts.
I have Never seen this
if i had known
trust me 1st avenue I would have taken
and in future if granted my priveledge back I will use it
I will never post my gripes with a dev in  reviews section
and i will never contact a moderator on social media (although why they would have public accounts and somehow expect privacy with their actual real names shown  on the forum is puzzling)
If you have a specific issue with mod behavior, then you contact me. I’m otto@wordpress.org. I will discuss any such issues with you, but in this case, yeah, you kinda went slightly over the top. Never take things this far over such trivial issues. Feel free to email me about it and I’ll take a deep dive into the problem, and discuss it with you. (edited)
:ice_cream:1
but again I  am asking that whomever has the authority to do  so to please grant me back my privileges as  I’ve sincerely not tried to make this an issue btwen my and  another developer
@Otto thank you. And I will share my story with screenshots in a private email with you. Thank you.
i  swear on my grandfathers  grave  the last  thing I would ever want to do is loose this priviledge to be a part of this community that I have been with since 2010. I love WP and want to make sure anyone who’s working with developers especially in situations where devs are overseas are not taken advantage of like I have been and was shocked to see basically allowed to continue through my banning and the developer then promoting MY plugin for sale on his support comments as of this week.
Probably don’t need screenshots. We have all the history available, so I can find and see everything necessary
Well at least i want you to see what led to this… me posting the review
i would never just post a review like that, i have no time for that stuff
I understand. Just send me an email detailing the issue, and I’ll look into it.
thanks @Otto
Monday, January 13th
@Otto reaching out
did you receive my messages?
This is so not the place for you to have this conversation. It’s Monday. The email system works. Be patient. (edited)
@jan_dembowski should i send him email at otto@wordpress.com or should i send via slack, sorry not used to how you guys do things here as of recent
.org, not .com  (for the record)
Otto
If you have a specific issue with mod behavior, then you contact me. I’m otto@wordpress.org. I will discuss any such issues with you, but in this case, yeah, you kinda went slightly over the top.

.org not .com
See the conversation link I just provided.
thanks! Also where would I find information to report a developer?
. . .
. . .
If it’s a plugin and depending on what that is for, plugins@wordress.org works.
thanks
would it be a violation of a developer to offer a plugin developed for a specific company on wordpress.org if he originally said it wouldn’t be on there?
like violation of some terms of agreement
Best taken up with the plugins team, not here.
I have this developer I worked with recently who recently broke that trust @wp.mechanic
Ok
and there you go calling them out… sigh
do they have their on slack channel?
why would it not be ok to call someone out who is doing the community harm?
email the plugins team at the address Jan gave you
do you want to protect someone like that?
no, you don’t get to play that game
i did, just wondering where I can speak to someone with regards to it on slack
I’m not playing no games @sterndata
sure you are. Please use email to continue your issues with the correct parties.
not this semi-public channel.
@sterndata i have no time for games…
this 100% about business
@Remy Medranda SERIOUSLY, This is not the place for you to have this conversation.

You’re being very rude
If you can’t handle being a mode politely why be one?
You’re wrong. You’re not a customer. You never were. We’re not customer support people. Never have been. You, like us, are volunteers.
so then be polite
I was.
Im not being rude to you
no you haven’t
Yes, you are.
share 1 example
Read the whole exchange.
I can share several where you are blantenly rude to me
You reread
of for ***’s sake. Asked and answered, your honor!
See again
you can’t respond like that
that’s incredibly rude
You’re all being rude to each other, if that helps ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
going back to handling the pending queue
thanks for confirming that outside opinion even sees you we’re being rude
I’ll wait from response from plugin team.. thanks for not being helpful today mods
Right. OK then. Anything else? You’re publicly attacking a plugin author. You’ve posted screen shots of conversations, you’re perseverating about this and have been repeatedly asked to stop. You’ve been given (several times) a way to handle this. (edited)
Anyone else want to opine on this? The patience of anyone has limits and that includes moderators.
my patience dealing with this matter is getting thin as well
you guys are letting someone do something illegal
and letting him get away with it
and even protecting him
that’s flat out wrong
@Remy Medranda You have been asked multiple times to not have this conversation in the #forums channel. Please stop, or I will need to take action to remove you from the Slack.
@Otto got it. Message has been sent. Waiting on responses from you and your team.
Oh, for Pete’s sake! These are open forums not a store, not a business, not a good place to air dirty laundry. We have channels and means for all of that.
exactly @JNash
what channels?
thats what I’m asking here before but gettin rude responses
If you have problems with a plugin author, then you email the plugins team. You have been told this already. There is no channel on Slack or any other means of communication that is appropriate for this discussion.
So this was an error? there is no channel?
JNash
Oh, for Pete’s sake! These are open forums not a store, not a business, not a good place to air dirty laundry. We have channels and means for all of that.

how were you attacked?
JNash
Channels as in, the appropriate mechanisms to pursue your communications. Don’t attack me!
You are misunderstanding the nature of the word “channel”. It is not appropriate in any Slack channel.
This is the last warning, please stop this discussion now.
@JNash said “We have channels and means for all of that.” so I understood it as it was said.
I’ll wait for response from plugin team
a channel for this would be nice though
would help future people having same issues
Yes, that would be appropriate. And no, there is no channel to discuss such matters on Slack, as that is not the purpose of this Slack.
dumb question maybe… but is Slack part of WordPress?
No, Slack is a separate company.
@Otto you dive?
@Otto you like corals?
meantime, there’s  topic on fantasy golf.  FANTASY GOLF??????_
:+1:1
@Remy Medranda This is not really a good channel for this discussion. I’ll reply to your email later, after breakfast or something
@Otto ok. if you’re into corals or the ocean… check us out.. tckcorals.com
I’ve built like 50 sites this year alone on WP to sell corals :wink: Maybe next year @sterndata some golf related site would be cool…
Golf. Coral. COFFEE. Is good. :coffee::smiling_imp:
I can’t agree more. I would just maybe put coffee first… and since i can’t golf, maybe golf last.. although some of the best times I can remember as a teen… were with friends at the Golf Range….

Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) is the standard markup language for documents designed to be displayed in a web browser. It can be assisted by technologies such as Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) and scripting languages such as JavaScript.

Web browsers receive HTML documents from a web server or from local storage and render the documents into multimedia web pages. HTML describes the structure of a web page semantically and originally included cues for the appearance of the document.

HTML elements are the building blocks of HTML pages. With HTML constructs, images and other objects such as interactive forms may be embedded into the rendered page. HTML provides a means to create structured documents by denoting structural semantics for text such as headings, paragraphs, lists, links, quotes and other items. HTML elements are delineated by tags, written using angle brackets. Tags such as and directly introduce content into the page. Other tags such as

surround and provide information about document text and may include other tags as sub-elements. Browsers do not display the HTML tags, but use them to interpret the content of the page. There are many properties for HTML but in this article you will learn about some properties to wrap text around circle.

First add a heading with a paragraph like this

<div class="container">
   <div class="circle"></div>
     <h2>Heading</h2>
       <p>Paragraph</p>
</div>

Link your style sheet with this code

<link rel="stylesheet" href="browse your style sheet">

In style sheet place this code. You can modify properties as you want

body{
	margin:0;
	padding:0;
	font-family:"MS Serif", "New York", serif;
	background:url(tree.jpeg);
	background-size: cover;
}
.container {
	position:absolute;
	top:50%;
	left:50%;
	transform: translate(-50%,-50%);
	width:600px;
	padding:30px;
	background:#fff;
	box-sizing: border-box;
	border-radius: 10px;
	box-shadow: 0 25px 50px rgba(0,0,0,.2);
	
}
.circle{
	width:200px;
	height:200px;
	background: url(tree.jpeg);
	background-size: 200px 200px;
	border-radius: 50%;
	float:left;
	shape-outside: circle();
	margin:10px;
}

In the result it should look like this

Mobile Phones

Mobile phones, particularly the smartphones that have become our inseparable companions today, are relatively new.

History

A handheld mobile radio telephone service was envisioned in the early stages of radio engineering. In 1917, Finnish inventor Eric Tigerstedt filed a patent for a “pocket-size folding telephone with a very thin carbon microphone”. Early predecessors of cellular phones included analog radio communications from ships and trains. The race to create truly portable telephone devices began after World War II, with developments taking place in many countries. The advances in mobile telephony have been traced in successive “generations”, starting with the early zeroth-generation (0G) services, such as Bell System’s Mobile Telephone Service and its successor, the Improved Mobile Telephone Service. These 0G systems were not cellular, supported few simultaneous calls, and were very expensive. The very first mobile phones were not really mobile phones at all. They were two-way radios that allowed people like taxi drivers and the emergency services to communicate.

First phone call was made by Martin Cooper

Instead of relying on base stations with separate cells (and the signal being passed from one cell to another), the first mobile phone networks involved one very powerful base station covering a much wider area.

First Mobile Phone

The first handheld cellular mobile phone was demonstrated by John F. Mitchell and Martin Cooper of Motorola in 1973, using a handset weighing 2 kilograms (4.4 lb). The first commercial automated cellular network (1G) analog was launched in Japan by Nippon Telegraph and Telephone in 1979. This was followed in 1981 by the simultaneous launch of the Nordic Mobile Telephone (NMT) system in Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden. Several other countries then followed in the early to mid-1980s. These first-generation (1G) systems could support far more simultaneous calls but still used analog cellular technology. In 1983, the DynaTAC 8000x was the first commercially available handheld mobile phone.

In 1991, the second-generation (2G) digital cellular technology was launched in Finland by Radiolinja on the GSM standard. This sparked competition in the sector as the new operators challenged the incumbent 1G network operators.

Ten years later, in 2001, the third generation (3G) was launched in Japan by NTT DoCoMo on the WCDMA standard.[9] This was followed by 3.5G, 3G+ or turbo 3G enhancements based on the high-speed packet access (HSPA) family, allowing UMTS networks to have higher data transfer speeds and capacity.

By 2009, it had become clear that, at some point, 3G networks would be overwhelmed by the growth of bandwidth-intensive applications, such as streaming media.[10] Consequently, the industry began looking to data-optimized fourth-generation technologies, with the promise of speed improvements up to ten-fold over existing 3G technologies. The first two commercially available technologies billed as 4G were the WiMAX standard, offered in North America by Sprint, and the LTE standard, first offered in Scandinavia by TeliaSonera.

5G is a technology and term used in research papers and projects to denote the next major phase in mobile telecommunication standards beyond the 4G/IMT-Advanced standards. The term 5G is not officially used in any specification or official document yet made public by telecommunication companies or standardization bodies such as 3GPP, WiMAX Forum or ITU-R. New standards beyond 4G are currently being developed by standardization bodies, but they are at this time seen as under the 4G umbrella, not for a new mobile generation.

Types of mobile phone

There are many types of mobile phones like smart phone and feature phone etc.

Smartphone

Smartphones have several distinguishing features. The International Telecommunication Union measures those with Internet connection, which it calls Active Mobile-Broadband subscriptions (which includes tablets, etc.). In the developed world, smartphones have now overtaken the usage of earlier mobile systems. However, in the developing world, they account for around 50% of mobile telephony.

Smart Phone

Feature phone

Feature phone is a term typically used as a word to describe mobile phones which are limited in capabilities in contrast to a modern smartphone. Feature phones typically provide voice calling and text messaging functionality, in addition to basic multimedia and Internet capabilities, and other services offered by the user’s wireless service provider.

Nokia 3310 3G (Feature Phone)

A feature phone has additional functions over and above a basic mobile phone which is only capable of voice calling and text messaging. Feature phones and basic mobile phones tend to use a proprietary, custom-designed software and user interface. By contrast, smartphones generally use a mobile operating system that often shares common traits across devices.

Computer accessories – Mouse

To date we use many electric devices that was not exist before normally. One of these devices is computer. It’s also called PC (Personal Computer) and machine by professionals. Basically, computer is a group of instruments. In this group there are many devices and instruments CPU, LED, keyboard and Mouse.

We will talk about mouse which is the basic tool to use computer. Mouse or Computer Mouse is a pointing machine that detects tow-dimensional motion relative to a surface. This motion is typically translated into the motion of a pointer on a display, which allows a smooth control of the graphical user interface.

Old days computer mouse

The first public manifestation of a mouse controlling a computer system was in 1968. Originally wired to a computer, many modern mice are cordless, relying on short-range radio communication with the connected system. Mice originally used a ball rolling on a surface to detect motion, but modern mice often have optical sensors that have no moving parts. In addition to moving a cursor, computer mice have one or more buttons to allow operations such as selection of a menu item on a display. Mice often also feature other elements, such as touch surfaces and “wheels”, which enable additional control and dimensional input.

Douglas C. Engelbert

The first computer mouse was invented by Douglas C. Engelbert. He invented the computer mouse in 1964 — two decades before it would ship with the first Apple Macintosh. The idea occurred to him when attending a computer graphics conference, and he was brainstorming ways to move an onscreen cursor.

Old mouse was slow and dim with limited controls. It had a large shape with big and weird wheel. It needed a plane surface to work. It had been a little bit heavy. So it was not so easy to handle it. Gradually it was developed and now it has a smart shape with various features. To date, with a mouse you have more control than the old time. Now you can even navigate with mouse.
So, it was not so easy to handle it. Gradually it developed and now it has a smart shape with various features. To date, with a mouse you have more control than the old time. Now you can even navigate with mouse. More control on cursor while selecting any thing or painting. It made so easy to design and illustrate any thing with your finger tips.

Operating Systems – Android

Operating System is system software that manages computer hardware and software resources. It provides common services for computer. Operating systems also used in mobiles and tablets.

Android is one of operating system that used in mobiles and tablets. Android is developed by Google. It is based on a modified version of the Linux kernel and other open source software, and is designed primarily for touchscreen mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. Google also has developed Android TV for televisions, Android Auto for cars and Android OS for wrist watches.

Android is the most used OS in smartphones all over the world. Its easiness and simplicity makes it more reliable. Android’s version history begins when Google released publicly Android Beta on November 5, 2007. First commercial version, Android 1.0, was released on September 23, 2008. Android is continually developed by Google and the Open Handset Alliance, and it has seen several updates to its base operating system since the initial release.Android is the most used OS in smartphones all over the world. Its easiness and simplicity makes it more reliable.

Android version usage history

Development

Android is developed by Google until the latest changes and updates are ready to be released, at which point the source code is made available to the Android Open Source Project (AOSP), an open source initiative led by Google. The AOSP code can be found without modification on select devices, mainly the Nexus and Pixel series of devices. The source code is, in turn, customized and adapted by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to run on their hardware. Also, Android’s source code does not contain the often-proprietary device drivers that are needed for certain hardware components. As a result, most Android devices, including Google’s own, ultimately ship with a combination of free and open source and proprietary software, with the software required for accessing Google services falling into the latter category.

Solar Panels-The Power of Sun

Sun is a great source of energy but very little used by our world. It currently fuses about 600 million tons of hydrogen into helium every second, converting 4 million tons of matter into energy every second as a result. This energy, which can take between 10,000 and 170,000 years to escape from its core, is the source of the Sun’s light and heat.

Sunlight is a portion of the electromagnetic radiation given by the Sun, in particular infrared, visible, and ultraviolet light. On Earth, sunlight is filtered through Earth’s atmosphere, and is obvious as daylight when the Sun is above the horizon. When the direct solar radiation is not blocked by clouds, it is experienced as sunshine, a combination of bright light and radiant heat. When it is blocked by clouds or reflects off other objects, it is experienced as diffused light. The World Meteorological Organization uses the term “sunshine duration” to mean the cumulative time during which an area receives direct irradiance from the Sun of at least 120 watts per square meter. Other sources indicate an “Average over the entire earth” of “164 Watts per square meter over a 24-hour day.

For the first time, to create an electrical charge from sunlight with some materials was observed by  Alexandre-Edmond Becquerel. Though the initial solar panels were too inefficient for even simple electric devices. In 1873 Willoughby Smith discovered that the charge could be caused by light hitting selenium. After this discovery, William Grylls Adams and Richard Evans Day published “The action of light on selenium” in 1876, describing the experiment.

However, these solar panels were very inefficient, especially compared to coal-fired power plants. In 1939, Russell Ohl created the solar cell design that is used in many modern solar panels. He patented his design in 1941. In 1954, this design was first used by Bell Labs to create the first commercially viable silicon solar cell.

Each module is ranked by its DC output power under standard test conditions (STC), and typically ranges from 100 to 365 Watts (W). The efficiency of a module determines the area of a module given the same rated output – an 8% efficient 230 W module will have twice the area of a 16% efficient 230 W module. There are a few commercially available solar modules that exceed efficiency of 24%

This much cheaper and easier way to produce electricity. To date it is easy to get efficient solar panels with various rating. You can select as your demand of electricity.

Loaring @louring

We are launching a new version with a new feature on request by Loaring.
Loaring described a confusion: Instead of “scrolling back to top when each slide loads”, is it possible to START at the top? It’s more logic always starting at the top – scrolling is a bit confusing.

Fahad replied: So instead of slow scroll, we can immediately start from top. I will check this possibility in next version.

After some time Fahad released next version with this feature.

Now you can use “scroll to top” option with numeric value. To use this feature go to options check “scroll to top” box and add some value as you want. For example 5 means 5 seconds delay to scroll up. If you change it to 1 so, page will scroll up in 1 second and if you want to remove the delay set the value to 0.

In the case you want to remember your value but you do not want implement at the movement just uncheck “scroll to top” box.

You can watch this to get more guidance.

Introduction to Bootstrap

Bootstrap is a free and open source software (FOSS). It contains CSS and JavaScript-based design templates for forms, buttons, navigation, typography and other interface components.

 Mark Otto and Jacob Thornton

Bootstrap originally named Twitter Blueprint, developed by Mark Otto and Jacob Thornton on Twitter as a framework. Before it various libraries were used for interface development, which led to inconsistencies and a high maintenance burden.

On January 31, 2012, Bootstrap 2 was released, which added built-in support for Glyphicons, various new components and changes to many of exiting components. This version supports responsive web design. This means web pages dynamically adjusts with different devices (desktop, tablet, mobile phone). The next major version Bootstrap 3 was released on August 19, 2013.

Mark Otto announced Bootstrap 4 on October 29, 2014. The first alpha version of Bootstrap 4 was released on August 19, 2015. The first beta version was released on 10 August 2017. Mark suspended work on Bootstrap 3 on September 6, 2016, to free up time to work on Bootstrap 4. Bootstrap 4 was finalized on January 18, 2018.

Bootstrap 4 is latest version, more adjustable and easier. Bootstrap 4 supports the latest versions of the Google Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera, and Safari (except on Windows).

Frame-work

Bootstrap is a web framework to simplify the development of web pages. The primary purpose of adding it to a web project is to apply Bootstrap’s choices of color, size, font and layout to that project. As such, the primary factor is whether the developers in charge find those choices to their liking. Once added to a project, Bootstrap provides basic style definitions for all HTML elements. The end result is a uniform appearance for prose, tables and form elements across web browsers. Developers can also add CSS elements defined in Bootstrap for further customization as well.

The most eminent components of Bootstrap are its layout components, as they affect an entire web page. The basic layout component is called “Container”, as every other element in the page is placed in it. Developers can choose between a fixed-width container and a fluid-width container. While the latter always fills the width of the web page, the former uses one of the four predefined fixed widths, depending on the size of the screen showing the page:

  • Smaller than 576 pixels
  • 576–768 pixels
  • 768–992 pixels
  • 992–1200 pixels
  • Larger than 1200 pixels
