Transient Cleaner
[resolved] Maintenance of this plugin (3 posts)

    Hi,

    Is this plugin under new management now?

    It seems to be; the previous maintainer was username "dartiss" (David Artiss); but now it's "Dark Designs", and this URL - http://wordpress.org/support/topic/the-current-state-of-transient-housekeeping - speaks in the 3rd person of "The original author of this plugin, David Artiss".

    On the other hand, the profile page for "Dark Designs", http://profiles.wordpress.org/darkdesigns/, links to David Artiss's social networking pages and homepage (apart from a Twitter link to an account for a Daniel Artiss), which tends to suggest the two are the same person.

    This is rather confusing! (I've got nothing at all against the ninja coding skills of dark aliens with dual identities, but I like to be reasonably strict about which plugins I trust, so the information is helpful).

    Best wishes,
    David

    Apologies for the confusion David - it's a result of the way the handover to us was initially done. It wasn't obvious where those links were coming from but we've found them now and have taken steps for them to disappear. Once we're on social networks ourselves we'll add our own.

    Our plan is to take control (with the original developers consent) of worthwhile but abandoned plugins. We'll sort out any outstanding issues, strip advertising and any other promotional material from any of them and then look at improving them.

    In the case of this plugin that's done - what it needs to do it does. We'll now just keep it "ticking over", replying to any support queries and performing any maintenance when required.

    I hope this answers your query.

    DD.

    Hi David,

    It looks as if it's now resolved - the Gravatar profile of the original developer was, somehow, cross-linked to this account. We ended up having to speak to WordPress support in the end to resolve it but it now looks to be sorted.

    As soon as we get a website and/or social media sites sorted we'll add those.

    DD.
