Steward Sunday is the day we dedicate to making our industry more amazing. A bit like leaning down to pick up and dispose of a piece of litter on your favorite street, Steward Sunday is meant to spread ideas and take action that strengthens digital culture and joins community.
One way we do this is to help define and record new industry terms. Sometimes we even try to coin new terms ourselves!
Today we have suggested the term TOPAST (Turn Off Plugins and Switch Theme). This is an extremely common request of support tickets and the first line of defense when troubleshooting WordPress issues. We think it’s only fair that we run #TOPAST before contacting support with technical issues. In this way, we respect our industry by not wasting others time and become stewards of our industries culture and language. Yay open source!
