The One About Training New Moderators

So, we never did get any kind of training documentation started. I have two new volunteers who would love to help mod videos – how shall we get them started?

Suggested process:

  1. Read through the Submission Guidelines.
  2. Read through this P2P2 “P2” is the name of the theme the blogs of 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 for context and history. It’s not that long. 🙂
  3. TagTag Tag is one of the pre-defined taxonomies in WordPress. Users can add tags to their WordPress posts along with categories. However, while a category may cover a broad range of topics, tags are smaller in scope and focused to specific topics. Think of them as keywords used for topics discussed in a particular post. a video to “claim” it for review.
  4. Watch the video.
  5. Post any questions to this site.
  6. If you’re certain it meets our standards for accuracy and video/audio quality, post to this site that you think it should be published.

For your first 3 videos, your trainer will review the video too, to make sure you haven’t missed anything. After that, you’ll be able to schedule videos for publication independently.

IMPORTANT: We only schedule 3-5 videos for publication per day. This is to avoid spamming all the people who are subscribed to Please don’t publish a whole slew of videos at a time, because sadness.

ALSO IMPORTANT: This blog is public, though it does discourage search engines. If a question comes up with a video that might be sensitive, we try to be discreet with people’s names.

Please suggest changes/additions/deletions. 🙂
