Emailed Author: There are issues with your plugin code.
Please read this ENTIRE email, address all listed issues, and reply to this email with your corrected code attached. It is required for you to read and reply to these emails, and failure to do so will result in significant delays with your plugin being accepted.
Also please remember in addition to code quality, security and functionality, we require all plugins adhere to our guidelines. If you have not yet, please read them:
## Including your own update checker
Please remove the checks you have in your plugin to provide for updates.
We do not permit plugins to phone home to other servers for updates, as we are providing that service for you with WordPress.org hosting. One of our guidelines is that you actually use our hosting, so we need you to remove that code.
## Undocumented use of a 3rd Party or external service
While this is actually okay, you neglected to document this in your readme. We require plugins that reach out to other services to disclose this, in clear and plain English, so users are aware of where data is being sent. This allows them to ensure that any legal issues with data transmissions are covered (like people in the EU).
Please update your readme to clearly explain that your plugin is relying on a 3rd party as a service in the plugin description. If this is an optional feature, it’s fine to document it in the FAQ instead, but it should contain a link to the services’ servers.
Please make sure you’ve addressed ALL issues brought up in this email. When you’ve corrected your code, reply to this email with the updated code attached as a zip, or provide a link to the new code for us to review. If you have questions, concerns, or need clarification, please reply to this email and just ask us.
(While we have tried to make this review as exhaustive as possible we, like you, are humans and may have missed things. As such, we will re-review the ENTIRE plugin when you send it back to us. We appreciate your patience and understanding in this.)
