Reporting acts of kindness in the WordPress community.

Nick not only gave me the pieces I needed for a WP solution, he took my Gist and coded the solution…without my asking ;)

Act of Kindness: I needed to find a way to have user profile updates sent to the admin ONLY when certain fields changed. I posted the issue in the AWP Facebook group and Nick threw out the idea of using get_transient(), which was great and I would have been coding that up the next day....however, I woke up to discover Nick had taken my example in a gist and coded all of it for me, it works perfectly!

A random act of kindness, made my day!

Act of Kindness: Kimb stepped in when something inexplicable (to me at least) went awry on a client's site after a software update. He promptly replied to my panicked email, logged in, and within an hour I had an email to say it was sorted. Wonderful stuff - what a total star.

Chris Lema wants to see people succeed.

Act of Kindness: I had the opportunity to talk to Chris Lema for about an hour last year about some business ideas. The reason I was able to do this was because he wanted to see Pressgram succeed. He offered his time to anybody who donated a certain amount to the kickstarter campaign for Pressgram. Chris didn't have to do this, but from what I understand, he is just a nice guy and wanted to see someone succeed. So, he gave up his valuable time to talk to people and in turn help them out. He shot down all of my ideas, but that ended up saving me a lot of time and frustration. I appreciate his kindness to others and generosity in the WordPress community.

Act of Kindness: I've been using Gravity Forms ever since I have been working with WordPress. It's the only plugin that I can't live without because for every other plugin there are alternatives. I think the biggest kindness of RocketGenius is their great product Gravity Forms.

Last year my subscription expired and I did not extend it in the grace-period. When I contacted them a few month back, they exempted the $100 and allowed me to renew my subscription fee as if I was paying on time. At the time I sent them a Thanks Tweet, yet I received no reply. Seems they are not very social, anyhow they have a great product and great support.

Jim Walker seems to be really nice guy.

Act of Kindness: Called Jim a couple times and he always answers phone, and is very helpful with pretty much any WordPress question. I'm not sure there is anyone else like him in the world. Really amazing there is someone like this available who is so generous.

Nick was just a tweet away!

Act of Kindness: I have never met Nick before but he has been very helpful to me a couple of times. He saw a tweet I sent out to the WP community and replied after doing some research. He was able to help me find a plugin in github to do the job I needed after I had spent a couple hours searching and couldn't find a solution. He was also helpful another time in helping me better understand editing books made with Pressbooks. I am posting this because Nick has no idea who I was and was willing to go out of his way and help me all because he saw I tweeted that I needed help.
