A while back on September 11, @andreamiddleton tried to import the /events blog into the /community blog since we were merging teams. She hit a bug/error/some kind of blocker in the import and reported it. @nacin and @otto42 said they’d look into the weird encoding issues. It wasn’t a priority, sure, but in the meantime we’re double-posting stuff and we still haven’t truly merged the groups. Could someone see if this can be figured out?

#community, #events, #import, #make

Today I imported all make wordpress org events…

Today I imported all make.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//events posts to make.wordpress.org/community. This resulted in three unexpected results.

1.) I chose to import users from /events, but those users don’t seem to have been imported. (I added heatheracton and adavis3105 as a test for the second issue.)

2.) Comments made by authors on /events are now showing my GravatarGravatar Is an acronym for Globally Recognized Avatar. It is the avatar system managed by WordPress.com, and used within the WordPress software. https://gravatar.com/. and, when you click on their names, connect to my wporg profile. For example, Heather Acton’s comment here. A close up: http://cl.ly/image/2d05343x101V

3.) There seems to be a character encoding issue on imported content: http://cl.ly/image/2q2I1D1d3q0t

Help me, metaMeta Meta is a term that refers to the inside workings of a group. For us, this is the team that works on internal WordPress sites like WordCamp Central and Make WordPress. team, you’re my only hope. 🙂
