ClassicPress has, and always will be, a community-led project. My goal from the outset was to create a structure where democracy rules and no single person could change the direction of ClassicPress without oversight and checks and balances.

It is therefore with great pleasure that I announce the appointment of three new Directors to ClassicPress Limited.

Michelle Coe, James Nylen and Wade Striebel have been pivotal in shaping, building and delivering ClassicPress to a worldwide audience and they have proven through actions their commitment to the long-term success of ClassicPress. It is an honour to welcome them as Directors of ClassicPress Limited.

This is an exciting step in the journey of ClassicPress, and I hope over time we will explore more ways to officially give ownership of ClassicPress to the community who continues to bring it to life.

I’d also like to express my everlasting gratitude to my fellow committee members and members of the community. Your generosity and hard work in making ClassicPress a reality is a gift to the world.

Scott Bowler, Founder

    Congratulations! All three of you deserve it! Nobody can argue against Wade’s activeness in the community, Michelle’s dedication to brand and marketing and James’ codewizardry. :wink:

  2. Just want to take a quick second to thank all of you for your work. I am the owner of a business in the middle of NOWHERE. Getting someone, to hire, that knows even a little about website’s is almost impossible. Found a few promising candidates, but thought it might be easier for the to learn a simple Vim along side me and a quick system program. Well, went to the other website, couldn’t even read anything. EVERY 20 seconds a popup “Call us now”. As a “REAL” business owner, this is my income. I WOULD NEVER put a potential customer through that. Then I find out about this fork. What a refreshing experience. You subjected myself to none of that. Kudos. All you need now , is a donate button!!!

  3. I am no young man by any means. 69yo this August. I thank the military for teaching me everything I know. But, I eat this stuff up. I live for it. You just made my life so much better, you will probably never realize.

  4. Congratulation Michelle, James and Wade on the new appointment, but more importantly, thank you for the amazing work you have all put in. You, are the juggernauts of ClassicPress :smile:
