We have a hashtag (also being used by Marketing): #WPContributors
Please use this whenever you post about or for the group on any platform. I’ll include it in all P2P2 P2 or O2 is the term people use to refer to the Make WordPress blog. It can be found at posts moving forward.
Note: please capitalize the WPC so that the hashtag is accessible for all. Thanks to @webcommsat for pointing this out.

Group Chat Recaps

Before the meeting, we started chatting in sub-groups about our varying experiences with contributing. During the meeting, a few people shared their experience. It looks like we have a good variety of experience from different areas within the community, and I know we have some who are starting out fairly fresh. These perspectives will all be useful as we move forward!

Next Steps

Group Leads

Designate someone in each task group to be the Lead. This will be the person who keeps things organized and reports updates in our meetings.

Measurable Goals

Establish goals so we know we are keeping on track and can celebrate our achievements. We can brainstorm, and then keep track, on the Google Doc linked below.


Start seeking out and documenting resources that are currently available for each task group. In addition to documenting the resources and information that you find, consider including notes on how easy it was to find, if it’s connected to other documentation, etc. Documents have been set up in Google Drive to add to.
