Notes from the community team chat for Asia/Pasific/everyone on April 6th

Today we had a first community team chat for Asia/Pasific/everyone! 🌏🌎🌍🙌 @kenshino did great facilitator, Thanks a lot! Let me share the summary:

Monthly Stats

Frequency of meetings

  • Backgroud: @kenshino proposed. Currently we do monthly meeting. A lot of the deputies are volunteers who only can help a couple hours per week, so we won’t use much energy for frequent meeting.
    On the other hand, Asia is a growing region and some people have always felt that missing monthly meetings meant not getting even eyes on issues that needed to be discussed.
  • Needs opinion: How often should we have meeting?
    Please add comment on this post 📝
    • once a week
    • one every two weeks
    • (I don’t see the opinion for keeping monthly)

WordCamp naming

  • Background@mayukojpn proposed this topic originally. Recently we saw a opinion about event name (city name vs country name) in Europe, but how in Asia? Do you have opinion or issue with event name? (at least we discussed in Japanese community sometimes)
  • Decision: nothing at that time.
  • note: This time we actually talked about URL structure (2017.city.wordcamp.org) not event name. It happened because I didn’t explain what I expected when we start this topic (sorry!). So Mayo will propose this topic again at next meeting with preparing my question. About URL structure if anyone have better idea, let’s suggest!

Extra mentor manager

  • Background: @_dorsvenabili proposed as we’re getting bigger and more global, it would be good to have one extra super deputy to assign/manage/train new mentors the EU/Asian timezone.
  • Decision: @mayukojpn raised hands and was recommended during meeting (Thanks!) to become a mentor manager of EU / Asia time zone. If there are no objection Mayo will contact to @brandondove and start working for it.

Next meeting

  • Next meeting will be next week or two weeks later on Thursday, depends on the answer of “Frequency of meetings”.
  • Talk about skipped topic:
    • Roles & Responsibilities and naming conventions of groups within Community Team – e.g. Who’s WordCamp Central?
    • Open discussion about event name (How define your event name/area?)

We saw these people during the meeting. If you want to add anything to this summary, please add comment 😉 @kenshino @_dorsvenabili @imnok @ibonazkoitia @mayukojpn @nielslange @thewebprincess @gounder @francina @ivankristianto @drebbitsweb @emanuelblagonic @mercib @miss_jwo @adityakane
