WordPress.tv Moderator Update: Week 6

Last Week

Now with moar moderators!
It’s been a busy week behind-the-scenes here in moderator land. We added a total of 4 new mods (doubling the size of our group) and that has been very refreshing! It has also led to a lot of chatter, as the “senior” moderators have only been here 3 months, and we we’re still working on our process documentation. Suffice it to say, lots of conversation on our P2P2 “P2” is the name of the theme the blogs of make.wordpress.org use. When asked to post or view something “on the p2” by a member of the WPTV team, that usually means you’re asked to check https://make.wordpress.org/tv. and during office hours on IRC yesterday as we have slowly been catching everyone up on how things are done. It’s a good problem to have. 🙂

Next week

We have our new mods documenting their processes as they learn, which is a big help! Hopefully we will have outr process docs filled out soon. We have also have put together a document on Video Submission Standards to share with WC organizers. We’re still editing and adding to it, but hope to get that to the proper subcommittee soon to be a part of the info that is given to future 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. organizers. Work on both of these projects continue for next week.

We’re going retro!
One of the reasons we have WordCamp video moderators right now is because this used to be the job of one busy and over-worked person. That led to some videos falling through the cracks, as you can imagine. Well we’ve done an audit of the site, and found a bunch of unpublished videos from past WordCamps. We will be publishing these to WordCamp.tv next week (and beyond) so if you missed a session from your favorite WordCamp, stay tuned!
