Ahmad AwaisAhmad Awais

Last weekend, I asked everyone especially the local community to Join Me for the WP Contribution Weekend.Β I feel honoured to share that I managed to get 14 Pakistani WordPressers to contribute and answer 164 support tickets in this very first official global contributors’ weekend.

It was an incredible experience! After the US, Pakistan was the country with most contributors in this global contributors’ activity. Which says a lot about what I along with these contributors have had been doing for the growth of WordPress in our country.

I managed to contribute to 23 tickets myself and along with awesome folks from the local WordPress community; we all managed to answer 164 support tickets. That’s almost 5.5 pages of no-reply support threads (30 on one page).Β WhileΒ we used a Google spreadsheet to track this data, there was an official spreadsheet with 70+ contributors as well. There were about 30 pages of no-reply support threads and by the end of the weekend we were left with only 5. (750+ support questions answered).

I would like to thank all the contributors i.e. Mohsin Habib, Maavuz Saif, Munir Kamal, Khuldoon Hameed, Hamza Sheikh, Malik Waqas, Kashif Rafique, Zubair Amin, Yousuf Tafhim, Athar Ahmed Nizamani, Mohammad Ashar, Usama Arshad, Haroon Q. Raja, and everyone involved in this activity.
