Calling all Meetup Group Organisers!

We’ve recently been working on a new platform for managing meetupMeetup All local/regional gatherings that are officially a part of the WordPress world but are not WordCamps are organized through https://www.meetup.com/. A meetup is typically a chance for local WordPress users to get together and share new ideas and seek help from one another. Searching for ‘WordPress’ on meetup.com will help you find options in your area. applications and keeping track of them in a central system. One of the benefits of this system is that we will finally be able to assign WordPress.orgWordPress.org The community site where WordPress code is created and shared by the users. This is where you can download the source code for WordPress core, plugins and themes as well as the central location for community conversations and organization. https://wordpress.org/ profile badges to all WordPress meetup group organisers!

We’re very excited to make this happen, but we need your help! In order to assign the badges and to fill out our system correctly, we need the WordPress.org usernames of all WordPress meetup group organisers. Without this we won’t be able to assign badges, and it will be harder for us to keep in contact with organisers using the new system.

To provide us with the WordPress.org usernames of all of WordPress meetup group organisers, we need all current organisers to add the info to this sheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1LYnNDDpBQC7przZyufG4W5mdO67BcTTy_yz8eHY24lc/edit?usp=sharing

Please fill in the fields next to the URLURL A specific web address of a website or web page on the Internet, such as a website’s URL www.wordpress.org for your meetup group. The fields need the following information:

  • WordPress.org username for main contact: The WordPress.org username of the organiser who is the main contact with the Global Community Team (if there is no one person for this, then choose anyone from your team)
  • WordPress.org usernames of all organisers: A comma-separated list of the WordPress.org usernames of all of your meetup group’s organisers
  • Is the main contact’s WordPress.org email address still valid?: Select ‘Yes’ if the email address on the WordPress.org profile for the main contact is correct and in use, or select ‘No’ if it is not.
