Reach out to WordCamps

Learn more. is over, organisers need a well deserved break. However a few tasks still remain: close the budget, follow up on invoices and … get the videos onto WordPress.tv!

One of our roles as WordPress TV moderator is make sure no valuable videos related to WordPress get lost, and so offering our help to get them online.

Can you help us with this reach out and inform organisers of what they can do (add the intro, upload to WordPress.tv or even just a bulk upload of the videos to our AWS S3)? Then let us know in a comment here and we’ll get together to get this process started.

Interested in how it would practically go? Have a check here.

WCUS is looking for a WordPress.tv table lead

Hi team,

On Sunday, November 3rd, WCUS is having Contributor DayContributor Day Contributor Days are standalone days, frequently held before or after WordCamps but they can also happen at any time. They are events where people get together to work on various areas of https://make.wordpress.org/ There are many teams that people can participate in, each with a different focus. https://2017.us.wordcamp.org/contributor-day/ https://make.wordpress.org/support/handbook/getting-started/getting-started-at-a-contributor-day/.. We have been approached by the organizers to see who is interested in leading a table.

If anybody is going to WCUS and willing to help out, please leave a comment.

Thanks!

Video upload limit

Dear moderators,
We all sometimes suffer sometimes from the 1GB upload limit. If we want to bring that higher, without having to host trillions of Terabytes, accepting some quality loss but not too much, what would be an acceptable upload limit?
Any input appreciated,
Pascal.

Proposal to change the weekly meeting time

Our current meeting time does not accommodate all timezones very well. Does weekly meeting time 13:00 UTC fits well?

Kindly share your input on which time suits best.

Thanks.

WPTV team rolls out new process template at WCEU

Contributing to the WPTV project has evolved over the years and at WordCampWordCamp WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress. They're one of the places where the WordPress community comes together to teach one another what they’ve learned throughout the year and share the joy. Learn more. Europe 2019, we got an update to the coordination document. This is the document link appears in the welcome box on the WPTV welcome screen and in the handbook.

We discovered at contributor dayContributor Day Contributor Days are standalone days, frequently held before or after WordCamps but they can also happen at any time. They are events where people get together to work on various areas of https://make.wordpress.org/ There are many teams that people can participate in, each with a different focus. https://2017.us.wordcamp.org/contributor-day/ https://make.wordpress.org/support/handbook/getting-started/getting-started-at-a-contributor-day/. that some of the team had been using old links and there was a bit of confusion to the standard way to communicate through the document. Before the day was out, Team RepTeam Rep A Team Rep is a person who represents the Make WordPress team to the rest of the project, make sure issues are raised and addressed as needed, and coordinates cross-team efforts. and lead for the table that day, Mauricio Gelves unveiled a new standard approach that should simplify and streamline the process of contributing.

A New Layout

The new layout of the project coordination document can best be seen on the locked Template page.

There are now 5 fields of the project itself, including WordCamp name and link to the WordCamp’s schedule. There are 7 metaMeta Meta is a term that refers to the inside workings of a group. For us, this is the team that works on internal WordPress sites like WordCamp Central and Make WordPress. fields for each video as well, including: Claimed by SlackSlack Slack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform https://slack.com/. The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at https://make.wordpress.org/chat/. Username, Video Observations and Status.

One of the biggest innovations is the standardization of the 5 statuses a video could possess: Pending, Claimed, Rejected, Submitted and Approved.

Simplifying Contributions

To use the new template, simply clone the Template tab and fill in the needed fields. After the videos are initially added to AWS S3 simply add the links to the sheet so other contributors can claim them to process and submit.

We would love your help! Both as a contributor and for feedback on the process and the coordination document itself. Do you think we are missing vital fields? Do you have suggestions on a better workflow to help ensure as many WordPress related videos as possible make it to WordPress.tv? Let’s have that conversation in the comments below and make WPTV better together!

The Get Involved table at WCEU 2019

Do you love contributing to WordPress? Do you love telling other people about how much you love contributing to WordPress? Would you like those people to start contributing to WordPress themselves? Then do I have the opportunity for you!

tl;dr: Sign up for one or more Community Volunteer shifts at the WCEU 2019 Get Involved table here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1PAts7eeSKYcBgI-NmLMWBj70_utBFjwq5uVXPTxieWE/edit?usp=sharing (note that there are 2 tabs in the sheet – one for each day).

They're one of the places where the WordPress community comes together to teach one another what they’ve learned throughout the year and share the joy. Learn more. Europe or US before you’ll be familiar with the Get Involved table – it’s a central location (an actual physical table) where attendees can find out more information about contributing to WordPress. The table is staffed by community volunteers, and we aim to have it staffed by at least one person (but preferably more) from the start of registration to the end of the final session on each day of the WordCamp, not including Contributor DayContributor Day Contributor Days are standalone days, frequently held before or after WordCamps but they can also happen at any time. They are events where people get together to work on various areas of https://make.wordpress.org/ There are many teams that people can participate in, each with a different focus. https://2017.us.wordcamp.org/contributor-day/ https://make.wordpress.org/support/handbook/getting-started/getting-started-at-a-contributor-day/..

People working at the Get Involved table simply need to be able to explain how WordPress contributions work and help people find a good fit in the project for their particular set of skills.

What we’re looking for here is for community members to sign up for volunteer shifts at the Get Involved tables for WordCamp Europe 2019 in Berlin. We have split up the two conference days up into 1-hour shifts to make things easier and it would be great to have a selection of people from across the project (not just the Community team) involved here.

The schedule and sign-up sheet is here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1PAts7eeSKYcBgI-NmLMWBj70_utBFjwq5uVXPTxieWE/edit?usp=sharing – simply add your name to the white blocks in the “Community Volunteers” columns for any shifts that you would like to take. Note that there are 2 tabs in the sheet – one for each day. You can reference the event schedule to make sure you don’t miss any sessions that you particularly want to attend.

WPTV team rep voting is open (again!)

Apologies for pulling down yesterdays poll, we discovered it was not locking out multiple votes so the results could not be trusted. Instead I have created the following Google Survey, so please vote at the below link.

As a reminder, the team repTeam Rep A Team Rep is a person who represents the Make WordPress team to the rest of the project, make sure issues are raised and addressed as needed, and coordinates cross-team efforts. role does not indicate a position of leadership. Team reps report to the broader WordPress community on the work that the team does. For this reason, while all votes will be counted from the community, votes from active members of the WordPress.tv team will be weighted more heavily when selecting representatives for the team.

Thanks again to @casiepa @prathameshp @roseapplemedia for your interest in representing WPTV, and good luck!

WPTV Team Rep voting is now open!

Thank you @casiepa @prathameshp @roseapplemedia for your interest in being team lead for 2019. Everyone seemed to like the idea of having co-reps to share responsibilities and support one another so with this in mind I’d like to open voting. Please make two (2) choices in the below poll. The two nominees with the most votes will co-rep the team going forward. Best of luck to you all!

Update: The poll did not lock out multiple votes, so I’ve taken it down for now and will post a new poll. sorry!
