4. Projects and Task Updates

4a)  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. Organizer Newsletter

Updates via @eidolonnight

View the thread on Slack 

The March Meetup Organizer Newsletter was emailed yesterday. That email had an open rate of 41.4% and a click rate of 5%, which is normal. We do see a regular outlier in these emails, that being any email mentioning new in-person meetup guidelines. These tend to have an open rate of 60-70%.

4b) Social Media Status

Updates via @eidolonnight

View the thread on Slack 

We continue to ask that new contributors help with WordPress.org Social Media Amplification. Given the newness of our social efforts on WordPress.org, liking, commenting, sharing, or otherwise engaging with content is the best way to help.

Process

We continue to scale up our social media efforts, and to iterate on processes in order to sustainably grow our audience. The following is our current list of campaigns, their hashtags, and their primary points of contact if you have questions or want to be involved.

4c) GithubGitHub GitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that can can easily be shared, copied and modified by other developers. Public repositories are free to host, private repositories require a paid subscription. GitHub introduced the concept of the ‘pull request’ where code changes done in branches by contributors can be reviewed and discussed before being merged be the repository owner. https://github.com/ Updates and Links

Update from @nalininonstopnewsuk

View the thread via this Slack link. 

We are moving the discussion area to the main Marketing area on GitHub. We really need contributors help to test they can add comments to items there. We can then migrate current discussions and archive the old area.

This is where we will also be posting the meeting planning for the week ahead, so please do add a comment even if it is hello on this week’s meeting ticket so we know this works.

Discussion area

https://github.com/WordPress/Marketing-Team/discussions

6.0 release update summarized from the GitHub card updated by @webcommsat

A systems and GitHub meeting is being set up on documentation aimed at end users, and pulling together the various skills/ contributors on this from documentation, training, marketing.

More details will be shared soon following an update with training/ WP Learn on potential changes that could be made on existing GitHub use.

The aim is to use GitHub to share and track the areas relating to end users more easily between the teams, now that marketing, documentation and Learn WP are moving / have moved to GitHub. Testing is being developed on how this could be done using some of the new GitHub tools.

Thank you to @bph, @milana_cap and @webcommsat who are leading the Documentation aspects for 6.0. They will share an update on this at a future meeting, and be chatting more with @dansoschin, @marybaum, @annezazu, and others too.

4d) Polyglots/ WordPress Translation Day videos

Update via: @nalininonstopnewsuk

View the thread via this Slack link.

  • Polyglot Newsletter – we are working with Polyglots on the March newsletter. Thanks to @meher, @Adeeb Malik and @webcommsat who are working on video.
  • Translation Day interviews: captioning. Thank you to @Adeeb Malik and @lmurillom who have worked on captions. There are still more captions needed and to get videos ready for WordPress.tv. Volunteers needed.
  • Image and video editing volunteers welcome.

https://github.com/WordPress/Marketing-Team/discussions/18

  • Note re. Slack and Make WordPress onboarding videos.

There is currently an issue as the Make WordPress screens have changed slightly from the original videos. This is being looked into. Due to the world situation, we will need some additional volunteers to help with updating / synchronizing the new versions, and supporting the polyglots with this. The skills needed for this are mainly video editing.

If video and photo editing is something you enjoy, these are good and fun ways to get involved.

@femkreations has offered to help with images in the future.

4e) WordCampWordCamp WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress.
