Today we had a first community team chat for Asia/Pasific/everyone! 🌏🌎🌍🙌 @kenshino did great facilitator, Thanks a lot! Let me share the summary:
Frequency of meetings
- Backgroud: @kenshino proposed. Currently we do monthly meeting. A lot of the deputies Community Deputies are a team of people all over the world who review WordCamp and Meetup applications, interview lead organizers, and generally keep things moving at WordCamp Central. Find more about deputies in our Community Deputy Handbook. 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)

- 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 A specific web address of a website or web page on the Internet, such as a website’s URL www.wordpress.org 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!

- Background: @_dorsvenabili proposed as we’re getting bigger and more global, it would be good to have one extra super deputy Super Deputies are Deputies who can perform extra tasks on WordCamp.org like creating new sites and publishing WordCamps to the schedule. to assign/manage/train new mentors Someone who has already organised a WordCamp and has time to meet with their assigned mentee every 2 weeks, they talk over where they should be in their timeline, help them to identify their issues, and also identify solutions for their issues. 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 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 Website for all WordCamp activities globally. https://central.wordcamp.org includes a list of upcoming and past camp with links to each.?
- Open discussion about event name (How define your event name/area?)

This is my session description:
Organizing Meetup in your city (English)
As you know WordPress is global, but I’d like to focus on Asia/Pacific region in this video because Europe and US communities already have a great online presence.
The video requires:
1. Get together with all attendee (except who don’t want to show their faces).
2. Say something all together. For example “We love WordPress” or “Hello from city name“.
3. Smartphone is enough.
4. I expect 3-10 second length.
5. Send me until 14 November by Slack Slack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform https://slack.com/. The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at https://make.wordpress.org/chat/. mayuko or email to hello atmark mayuko.me.
If you have any question please ask me. I also wrote blog post about it:
