Since I can't find a contact email anywhere on their site, I've submitted a request via their "Panic Button" sales form. Since I don't know where that goes, I'm copying the text here on the off-chance that someone from Woo finds this post: Please don't just redirect your support forum to WordPress Answers It recently came to our attention that y'...

If you are struggling with plugin code and it is open source, you can ask questions about parts of the code, pasting code parts in the questions and describing in what and why you are struggling with that piece of code. You could also link the complete repository for more context. Those kind of questions are fine. Just avoid to paste walls of code and ...

Provide my account with +5 rep No, why would anyone do that. You have asked 119 question, with a huge amount of them wit no accepted answers or any type of feedback. Me for one remember a time where I let you email me your theme, corrected the errors for you, mailed it back and then NEVER received any feedback from you again, you also point blank refuse to ...

I have maintained the stance that Woo should not be subject to negative treatment because of our personal opinions on their free support policy. However this action changes situation from happenstance inflow of Woo questions into systematic and willful redirection of such questions here. Moreover I feel this is made worse by: misrepresentation of ...

Problems occurring within a WordPress context do not make them WordPress specific problems. Third party plugins and themes are off-topic. That reason is noted in the close message: Third party plugins and themes are off topic, they are better asked about at their developers' support routes. Your question is about: A third party theme, Storefront ...

Your question has been put on hold (not closed), because it seems to be just about HTML and CSS, something that can happen without WordPress even involved. Second, there is a whole support forum for this theme. That's the place to ask such a question. And third, you haven't done anything to resolve the problem. Not even the most basic check with the code ...

Yes! Star the question, and you'll find it listed under the "favorites" tab of your profile for the site

Not sure if you are referring to this website or to the web in general. In first case, this is a Q&A website about WordPress, not PHP. If there's anything that's not about PHP, but about different other technologies that are part of WP core, there's no reason we should not accept the questions, unless there are other reasons that make the question off ...

The accounts had been temporarily suspended and given explanations that artificially inflating reputation (including stealing other's answers) and revenge downvoting are not acceptable behavior.

No, there was no major clean-up. Of your five deleted answers … two were deleted by yourself (this and this), one was deleted when the asker deleted the question, and two were deleted by me. This was really just a comment, and this was a bare link to the duplicate.

Read all of it. Continued: “WordPress” in sub-domains is fine, like wordpress.example.com, we’re just concerned about top-level domains.

Overall I see a direct link as a negative: A direct menu link for support on a seperate site confuses users, as seen from the OP's link. WooCommerce devs and experts do not frequent WSPE, since WPSE is very WordPress centric and not very 3rd party friendly. The link creates an unrealistic expectation with users. WooThemes has various paid support channels ...

This may be a 10k+ user ability but give it a try... Go to your user profile for WPSE. Click on the "Activity" tab Below your reputation chart is a list of tabs, click "questions" At the veryyyy bottom left is a link "deleted recent question" - click it If there doesn't work there's an "all actions" tab in the Activity profile which may shed some light. I ...

That question requires knowledge in CSS, not in WordPress. I have migrated it to help you getting better answers.

WordPress Stack Exchange is for questions directly relating to WordPress. Your question is not specific to WordPress, even if it is somewhat related. WordPress, as a behemoth community-driven piece of software, must lay down certain standards in order to keep code consistent and clean. Yoda conditions have nothing whatsoever to do with WordPress itself. If ...

Note that it doesn't say anything about it being your answer. This loss is of +2 rep that you gained from editing question - which you can see in your reputation log for Dec 5.

Removed. Banning is way too hard though (takes admins to blacklist).

Unfortunately to my knowledge there is no such service for WordPress. The volume and complexity of WP core is probably making it impractical to create and securely run one like it. So questions here are indeed limited to posting relevant code. Note that for best answers it is best to reduce code to a minimum reproducible example. Too little code won't ...

Cloud9 provides sandboxes for WordPress theme and plugin development (and also a lot of other services); public workspaces are available for free by the way. It's easy to setup different workspaces to play with custom server environments and configurations; you can even connect Cloud9 to your local VM or Sauce Labs for cross-browser compatibility testing. ...

Current moderators stay as they are, we are on the hook until we make decision to retire or are removed (typically for inactivity). As per election page there are two new positions to be filled with newly elected moderators.

Flags that are pseudo close votes go to the close vote review queue, not to the moderator desk. And there they stay, until someone resolves the post in question. Here are the flags that will go straight to the normal review queue:

People can only nominate themselves. You cannot assume that someone else is willing to invest a lot of time for that. And you really don't want to "spam" someone with a nomination who then has to opt out. The worst case would be that someone is actually elected as a moderator without knowing about it. They might be on vacation or absent for another reason. ...

I use WordPress, why did the chicken cross the road? FAQ is very explicit that WordPress context by itself does not make question on topic for our stack. You have posted your question on a premise that it might be WordPress-specific technique. Which (specific) it is not - as it was immediately and helpfully pointed out by multiple people with information ...

We could merge plugin-recommendation, theme-recommendation and hosting-recommendation into a deprecated tag shopping-recommendation, link-recommendation or something similar and add a good explanation to the tag wiki.

So far we have not abandoned Woo* stuff. The problem remains and we're still trying to find a solution. But like you, we're at the very end of that problem. We can't solve a problem that wasn't generated by us isn't maintained by us is impossible to fix by us. In short: You can fix that problem by asking Woo themselves - it's their customers, their ...

Flag one of the user’s posts, use the custom flag reason to explain the problem. In case of spam accounts, flagging the spam content once is enough. We will see those flags and destroy the account anyway. I just did that.

To my understanding, woocommerce is a third party plugin, which according to site rules and my understanding are are off topic. True. My question/questions are, why are some questions flagged as off topic and are accepted as such, and some are rejected. Those left open usually have potential to be reworked as generic. Mods have binding close vote and ...

As far as I know the long established Non-English Question Policy still stands. The questions (and by extension answers, as well as content in general) must be in English. With obvious exception of some newer stacks with different "main" language. I am not following what your specific flag situation was, but this covers your question literally.

Stack Overflow has a pretty massive CSS tag so it's suitable there. I also checked ProWebmaster's scope and they point to SO for CSS coding too.
