I have a strange negative, non-integer amount shown in the sponsorship section of tracker items:

According to the support page (Support -, I currently have 63 credits with the following pledged sponsorships:
0000309: Allow dynamic user filtering of catalog and gallery display - ocPortal feature tracker - 48 credits
0000058: Remove panel_width option - ocPortal feature tracker - 6 credits
0000366: Drop legacy support - ocPortal feature tracker - 4 credits
0000292: Scrap standard boxes - ocPortal feature tracker - 8 credits
0000063: Multi-categorisation - ocPortal feature tracker - 51 credits

This should leave me with a shortfall of 54 support credits, so I am not sure why the non-integer number is appearing.

Also, on the support and commercial support pages, you currently show the following:

It would be great if you could also show the pledged support credits from the tracker making it easier for people to know how many support credits they need to purchase to fully-fund their sponsorships.

I'll add a rounding in there to fix that. The support credits on the main site do not take into account sponsorships, and there are a few reasons for that – but in short, sponsorships don't count against credits until they have happened.

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
