Open requests for review

See our Guidelines for reviewing content to review the following content.

Can we do an AI review?

Translation and reviews can be run through some sort of AI system like ChatGPT. We can ask reviewers to perform. Additionally, we can also ask it to give content update recommendations for the content creator.

@digitalchild wants to experiment with how to make this easier and everyone appreciated that.

Localized content not getting reviewed in a timely manner– an AI review ahead of a native speaker review could be a good first step toward making progress.

Project Updates

Open Discussions

The idea is to create a page in the handbook that lists opensource, or free, video editing tools content creators can use when making content for Learn. We could also create Tutorials, or host Online Workshops, showcasing how to use those tools.

@digitalchild will make a form to send out to all creators. He’ll collect a spreadsheet of all the tools, to then categories and publish.

In case you’ve missed it, this is what this project is aiming to achieve by July 2024:

  • Develop a website redesign for Learn WordPress that delivers a clear, user-friendly pathway for learners of different levels, roles, and use cases.
  • Enhance the discoverability and searchability of relevant Learn WordPress content through the integration of new search filters and content organization strategies.
  • Establish a skill-level classification framework for Learn WordPress content that enables clear content filtering and search results based on learner needs.

Open Discussions

In this open discussion thread, @bsanevans initiates a brainstorming session to find ways to engage the 2,400+ members in a Slack channel more actively. Several suggestions are put forward:

@digitalchild proposes randomly tagging members to get their attention.
@psykro suggests the idea of “vetting sprints,” similar to dev squad triage sessions, to clear backlogs by inviting active members to participate.
@quitevisible emphasizes the effectiveness of specific requests, like polls, surveys, and task assignments. Public recognition for those who complete tasks is also encouraged.
@courtneypk supports the concept of working sprints for specific tasks and mentions that Contributor Hours could be beneficial.
@digitalchild adds to the idea of working sprints and suggests translation sessions once a month to work on translations.
@amitpatelmd recommends conducting surveys to provide an anonymous platform for members to express themselves and measure engagement. He suggests quarterly surveys.
@bsanevans appreciates the ideas and encourages further contributions to the discussion.

The discussion topic at hand revolves around GitHub issue #1880, which involves adding IDs to headings for anchor links on the website. The dev squad is seeking clarity on whether to use sentence case or all lowercase for internal anchor link fragments. The HTMLHTML HTML is an acronym for Hyper Text Markup Language. It is a markup language that is used in the development of web pages and websites. spec doesn’t specify a requirement, but lowercase is the common practice.

The dilemma is whether to formalize and document this practice across the site. @Jonathan suggests switching to all lowercase, but this would require a thorough review and update of existing lesson plans. The group is open to discussion on this matter.

@Destiny raises whether this issue will still be relevant if the content is consolidated according to the new information architecture for Learn. @Jonathan mentions that it depends on whether the “Tip” section in the Lesson Plan synced pattern is carried over to the new content types. Removing the tip section entirely is a possible solution.

The group agrees that the new architecture may change the current situation, so they consider merging the PR and addressing individual lesson plans on a case-by-case basis.

Asynchronous participants are encouraged to share their thoughts on the GitHub issue. @Jonathan notes that it’s essential to consider the impact of the new architecture.

The conversation ends with @Destiny mentioning a request for members of the dev-squad to review and test a PR for the Sensei Pro upgrade created by @Jonathan, asking for help from contributors with developer experience.
