Additions to the guideline

The support guidelines could do with a new addition, after a fair bit of issues with links and different treatments of links in posts, specifically relating to pluginPlugin A plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website. They can extend functionality or add new features to your WordPress websites. WordPress plugins are written in the PHP programming language and integrate seamlessly with WordPress. These can be free in the Plugin Directory or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party or theme support.

The addition would clarify what we expect of links, some don’t like them, some think they are OK, @clorith proposes to meet on the middle with something like this:

Public links in plugin or theme support topics may only be posted if they are to the creators official site or support resource.

Let’s discuss.

WordPress 5.3, how are we doing

A weekly check to see if any new recurring issues have come up with the latest version of WordPress it self, and which are then considered as additions to the Master List on the support forums.

Checking in with international liaisons

This is the section where we reach out to the non-English speaking parts of our community, to see how they are doing, if there’s anything we can help each other with, or just interesting things going on that it would be nice to share with others.

There’s no requirements for previous participation or “fame” to share here, anyone is welcome, and we encourage newcomers to participate!

The new agenda format

What are the feelings on the new agenda format, is it too wordy, could things be described better, feedback is welcome on how to make this a process people would like to be involved in.

Open floor

This part of the meeting only happens if there is time, the team aims to cover the pre-planned topics first in any given meeting.

When open floor starts, any topic posted either as a comment to this agenda post will be looked at, or as many as there is time for. If there is still time left after this, then meeting attendees may step forward with questions, comments, remarks, anything relating to the support team that they’d like to handle.

It is also important to note that not everyone is comfortable posting things publicly, there is complete understanding of this, and users are welcome to contact the team representative (@clorith) via direct messages on Slack with whatever they wish the team to look at together.

For any other items to discuss, please add them to the comments below, or bring them up in the meeting.
