I think we pretty much all agree that…

I think we pretty much all agree that the Codex pages below suck, are outdated, and serve no real purpose:

  • https://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_in_Your_Language
  • https://codex.wordpress.org/L10n:Localization_Teams
  • https://codex.wordpress.org/L10n:Teams_Currently_Forming

Here’s a crazy idea:

Who, in this brilliant group of people, thinks she or he can develop the code needed to show the correct (and automatically updated) information on this P2p2 "p2" is the name of the theme that blogs at make.wordpress.org use (and o2 is the accompanying plugin). When asked to post something "on the p2" by a member of the Polyglots team, that usually means you're asked to post on the team blog https://make.wordpress.org/polyglots/., via shortcodeShortcode A shortcode is a placeholder used within a WordPress post, page, or widget to insert a form or function generated by a plugin in a specific location on your site., or otherwise? Ideally (and to keep it as simple as possible, it would list:

  • Language name (both English and local)
  • Link to the site
  • Team members’ (editors and validators) 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/. cards


  • xx.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/ sites are part of a single multisiteMultisite Multisite is a WordPress feature which allows users to create a network of sites on a single WordPress installation. Available since WordPress version 3.0, Multisite is a continuation of WPMU or WordPress Multiuser project. WordPress MultiUser project was discontinued and its features were included into WordPress core.https://codex.wordpress.org/Create_A_Network. install
  • Nice code, i.e. guidelines! sanitize all the things! and so on
  • Whichever code we agree on will need to be reviewed (and possibly adapted) to run on wordpress.org
  • No guarantees that it’ll actually be implemented, but we need to start showing initiative ourselves.

We have many (very) capable devs here, let’s show some firepower, shall we?
