Courtesy

It kind of bugs me – I’d really wish that, when users leave bug reports and such for plugin and theme authors, that those authors would then at least acknowledge the receipt of those bug reports and give some sort of feedback as to the status of correcting those bugs, even if it’s just to say, “Hey, I don’t have time to work on this right now and probably won’t for a while.” I’ve got three or four different plugins in use at the moment, all of which have minor bugs and glitches, but the authors of these plugins almost seem to have fallen off the planet. If it wasn’t for the fact that there is still new content showing up on their sites (which, to be fair, could be _scheduled_ content), I’d have to assume they’d abandoned their blogs for a while. Some of these reports I’ve left have been out there for several days now. It’d just be nice to get an acknowledgement that, yes, they’ve seen my bug report, and it’s on the list of things to be investigated and, hopefully, fixed. It’s just common courtesy.
