Theme Vote Poll Results
Last week I created a poll allowing visitors to vote for what type of themes they would like to see next. The post received a great response and I would like to thank everyone for their many suggestions. The 1,600+ votes cast gives me a good idea as to what types of themes are in demand, and the many comments/suggestions given were great to see. For those interested, here are the results of the poll:
To me it was no surprise that Business CMS received the most votes. Despite some complaints that we already have too many CMS-style designs, it’s obvious from our internal stats that these themes are in demand and continually receive the most downloads. That being said, we have always striven to provide a mix of niche and general purpose themes. In recent history we have produced such themes as InReview, MyCuisine, Anticipate and Event, all of which serve a specific purpose and offer a unique set of tools. We will continue this pattern going forward. When considering which niche themes to make next, the poll offered some interesting insights and we will certainly be exploring these ideas. Things like Mobile and Facebook Fanpage themes strike me as particularly interesting. There are also many hidden gems in the 200+ suggestions that you gave in the comments! I hope our customers realize that it’s impossible to make everyone happy with each theme release, but we still try! We strive towards creating an overall collection that is diverse while at the same time not too narrowly focused that it scares off the broader audience.
Thanks again for participating. In the future I will continue to look for ways to involve the community in our decision making and make sure that everyone gets a chance to have their voice heard
