Support ForumSupport Forum WordPress Support Forums is a place to go for help and conversations around using WordPress. Also the place to go to report issues that are caused by errors with the WordPress code and implementations. Bug Scrub

The second bug scrub of the Support Forum component of the year was held this week!

CoreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress. Media Modal Input

A request for input on the core Media Modal came in, speficially in relation to ticket #24567.

Have we observed users struggling with using the media modal? And if so what areas and how could this be improved upon?

Let’s give the ticket a look, and perhaps to keep things focused, provide a singular feedback response on the ticket from the team.

Requiring a reason when flagging users

Moderators have a tool called “flagging”, which will require them to approve a post by a user until the flag is removed from their account.

There’s a ticket with a proposal to improve on this flow looking for feedback/comments at #meta-6834, the intent being that when a user is flagged, a reason is provided for why they are flagged, this way the user is not left in the dark as to why they were flagged. (Perhaps they never got a notification of violating guidelines, or they were annoyed and decided to walk away for a while and then can’t remember when they return. This is understandable, and it happens, so having a reason tied to the flagged state means we can expose that reason to the user to remove uncertainty, and reduce friction).

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!

Unable to make the meeting, or maybe meetings just aren’t your thing? We would still love to hear how things are going in other non-English speaking parts of our community. Please feel free to let us know via the comment section below, in your own time, if there is anything you’d like to share, any questions or concerns you have, or just to let us know you’re doing OK!

We will make a habit of putting this callout with every agenda post going forward, so that everyone has a chance to join 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.
