In the past three years I have been part of different community events and lately I have found that some people involved aren’t very aware of the guidelines we set in our program.
This could happen in a number of cases
- WordCamp WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress. They're one of the places where the WordPress community comes together to teach one another what they’ve learned throughout the year and share the joy. Learn more. organisers who are not the lead, so they don’t go through the handbook, because they expect the lead to read it and provide answers
- Meetup Meetup groups are locally-organized groups that get together for face-to-face events on a regular basis (commonly once a month). Learn more about Meetups in our Meetup Organizer Handbook. organisers that joined after the initial orientation, held only with the main organiser from a group
- In general, people that are doing awesome work in their local community (Meetups Meetup groups are locally-organized groups that get together for face-to-face events on a regular basis (commonly once a month). Learn more about Meetups in our Meetup Organizer Handbook., Contributor Days, Hackatons, etc…) without being aware of the Community team resources
- Deputies Community Program Supporters (formerly Deputies) are a team of people worldwide who review WordCamp and Meetup applications, interview lead organizers, and keep things moving at WordCamp Central. Find more about program supporters in our Program Supporter Handbook. that were inactive for a while
In the Meetup case (2) I think it might be enough for the team member that went through orientation to give the orientation to the new members every time someone else comes on board.
I wonder if the self-training should be made mandatory for the othe cases.
Everyone is on the same page
We don’t have many people grading the quizzes
What do you think?
Deadline to comment is May 18 so we can discuss this during the next two Community chats.
