Looking for feedback

  • New Learn WordPress website designs have been shared. You can find a more detailed view of Learn website on this post:
  • Let’s re-evaluate how we currently host our meetings
    • EMEA/AMER meetings Currently seeing low synchronous engagement in the past few months.
    • Team members (across the globe) are joining APAC meetings async and providing their feedback.
    • Unable to find hosts or co-hosts for EMEA/AMER.
    • Pooja is a Test co-lead for the upcoming 6.3 and 6.4 releases, and the Test team meeting falls a the same time, so it would be hard for her to switch back and forth.
    • @webtechpooja – My idea is to run 1 Coffee hour for EMEA, 1 Coffee hour for APAC, and 1 Global meeting. What do others think?
    • Brainstorm & Table Lead – WordCamp US 2023 Contributor Day There are two months left before WordCamp US 2023 Contributor Day! In preparation for the day, we’d like to invite you to put your name in as a table-co lead and share your ideas of what contributors at the Training Team table can get involved with on that day.

Weekly Roundup on Monday

During meetings, we post weekly published content. So instead of posting during meetings, we can post a weekly Roundup of what happened published on Monday, so we can focus our meetings around what needs to be created, reviewed, or discussed, and in this way, our meetings can be more engaging. We have positive feedback on it.
