February 14th Support Team Meeting Summary

Checking in with international liaisons

We had representatives from our Italian, Swedish, Dutch, Russia, Urdu and Brazilian communities. We had some discussions about the upcoming 5.1 release, and the Update PHP information page.

Open floor

WPBot, the IRC utility bot for WordPress support, got an infrastructure update this week, and also got given some automated moderation tasks to handle ongoing spam in the IRC chat.

The idea of a support appreciation day was also mentioned, so as not to lose track of it, as this is something we would still like to get going.

February 7th Support Team Meeting Summary

Apologies for the tardiness, flu season was brutal, we’re back up and running now!

General announcements

Gutenberg 5.0 landed yesterday, and includes so many widgets as blocks! So if you’re excited about that, give it a spin, see how things are working and partake in improving on things that aren’t working as expected. Widgets as blocks are still experimental-sort of, after all.

Checking in with international liaisons

We had representation from Sweden, Italy, Netherlands and Russia during this weeks gathering.

Open floor

It’s hard to show appreciation for support volunteers, to help with this we’re looking at doing what many others have done, and having a special appreciation day, where we promote the giving of thanks to those that give of their own time. This will of course be an all year endeavor, but one day a year we’ll focus heavily on it to spread the word.

January 24th Support Team Meeting Summary

General announcements

Handbook audit

As there were no objections to last weeks notes about doing a handbook audit, we will be kicking that project off soon, with the end goal being a cleaner, more usable handbook for all.

Flagging users, and moderator watch

In other news, we will start removing access from those who are not properly using the moderation tools. This means that if a user is flagged, it is required to add a user note and the user in question should be informed of what it means to be flagged and why they are flagged.

Checking in with international liaisons

Checking in with the Italian, Spanish, Russian, Dutch and Urdu communities, and they’re all looking shiny!
