Anyone using one of them, please drop me a line so I can see it in action.
Thanks for your support!!!
Jeff you have helped me sooooo much to understand
how the different colors work , the 'theme' is possibly the first thing that us 'moodlers' want to change /personalise etc ( maybe it should not be the first consideration , but it often is !)
Your post got me thinking ,about the great 'exchanges' that are given freely by so many of you 'moodlers' ,(through the exchange) peeks at sites , ability to download great resources, download a ready made set up of Moodle for Win , join courses (not to mention the fantastic forum help !)
Just maybe it would be possible to have some kind of 'honour' among 'moodlers' that we sign a 'visitors book' on the Moodle sites that we visit , benefited from , and leave a little thank you message ? Only needs a 'feedback forum'
Thoughts anyone ?
Thanks Joyce for your kind words. I started doing the themes because I cannot code PHP and wanted to give something back. I am very happy to see people downloading those themes and hope it helps them out some small bit.
As far as feedback, I have forums similar to these on ClassroomRevolution where I have asked people using my themes to leave a message and a url so I can see how the themes look on a working site. But, I imagine creating another account on another website gets tedious just to post a message. I should just put a block on my site where people can submit their urls instead.
I think it is a great idea to leave a message thanking someone for something they created. The PostNuke community has many independent developers doing all sorts of things, postnuke.com has message boards the same as here, yet, I have almost never seen anyone thank anyone else for the work they have done for the community.
In the Moodle community I can think of many who deserve a note of thanks.....
The list starts here
What an example !! hard act to follow
Seriously, I wish there were some way , that within this Open Source (free)
wonderful , community that Mart (and all of you ) have built, we could somehow (without appearing to be commercially motivated) guide new users ( as I was) to utilise the services of you guys that know how to set it all up ! so that all us 'teachers' have to do, is figure out how we populate our courses !
Teachers surely don't need to be php programmers ! Content providers maybe !
Probably said it before, but I spent a whole day after downloading Moodle, (one Saturday in January) trying to set it up, then noticed a hosting and support option (it was Martin's) and, I was up and running within 20 minutes! never looked back , the BEST support I have ever received for software ,in over 20 years !!
Maybe guys, (newbies) consider the 'Partners' ? unless of course you want to be programmers !
