New Person Thread

  • @fike: Hi! Nice to e-meet you all. I’m Fike from Indonesia, I’m working full time as a freelancer, but mostly working as Caldera Forms’ content manager. Already in the Trello board. Would love to take notes next week.

Celebration/Achievements in the Last Week

Task Lead Updates

  • @siobhanseija: This is actually @joostdevalk’s project but definitely worth mentioning: he got a sign off from #design for the new mobile page! Trac ticket: https://meta.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/4096
  • @harryjackson1221: WordPress Showcase Redesign Organization and Requirements https://trello.com/c/SdIcVK6q/257-showcase-redesign-organization-and-requirements We have created the wireframe for the new form to be used for collecting info about possible showcase entries from the site. We also agreed upon a meeting time, which is 1500 UTC on Mondays (I think), or 10am EST. If you wish to be added, let us know and we can recreate the DM and share the macro goals.
  • The Showcase Trello Board https://trello.com/b/Ono8rTJK/case-studies-showcase.
  • We have been working on adding the case studies to this board. I wanted to talk with the rest of the team about reworking the previous case studies. Should they be moved to this board for the rework? That could be great work to be done during Contributor Days at upcoming camps.
  • @siobhanseija: Just checked the Trello board and I don’t think there is anything left that is urgent for now, especially as a lot of team members are busy preparing for WordCamp Torino and WordCamp London this weekend. And there may be other WordCamps taking place as well!

New Business

  • @siobhanseija: Well, I have an important PSA! As the clock has changed for part of the team, the meeting time changes after today! *We will meet an hour earlier than we did today.* For everyone unsure of the meeting time next week, check https://make.wordpress.org/marketing/ after today! It’ll show you the correct time in your own time zone.
  • @siobhanseija: Quite a few contributor days this week, so if you have any projects you could use some help on… ping me! I’m trying to work out what there is to work on, for both London and Torino and maybe others that want to work on marketing.
  • @siobhanseija: Also, if you’re attending a WordCamp contributor day in the near future and would like to work on marketing but don’t know how: let us know! We can help you find and/or prepare work. It’s probably time to start thinking a bit more about WCEU (WordCamp Europe) as well as June is approaching.
