More on Publishing

As @roseapplemedia mentioned, the way wptv videos are published has changed, so they can all be pushed live right away rather than one every few days to avoid overwhelming the Planet feed in the dashboard. At my request and with Matt’s approval, the wptv portion of the Planet feed has been changed. From now on it will not pull the video posts at all, and it will not pull all of the blog posts from (not that there have been really any), only the ones tagged with “announcement”.

Since these posts go to the planet feed in every WordPress dashboard, there needs to be some quality control on the content to make sure everything is spelled correctly, etc. To that end, I’ve asked @jerrysarcastic to be in charge of publishing something 2-3 times per week. Each post should note a collection of videos that’s up — 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. Russia Session Videos — or in some cases might call out a particular session with a little review — VIDEO: Matt Mullenweg Q&A at Las Vegas MeetupMeetup All local/regional gatherings that are officially a part of the WordPress world but are not WordCamps are organized through A meetup is typically a chance for local WordPress users to get together and share new ideas and seek help from one another. Searching for ‘WordPress’ on will help you find options in your area.. While I’ve asked Jerry to be responsible for publishing posts to the feed for now (since he’s been editing with the docs team for some time now and has shown his editing abilities), everyone on the wptv team could contribute to writing the posts as a contributor to the blog, with Jerry reviewing before publishing. (Jerry can add people with the contributor role to the blog.)

All you WPTV mods can figure out the process that will work best for you in your next chat. The one thing I would like to see is posts going up as soon as new WC videos are pubbed. So even if a WC didn’t submit them all yet, but you’ve got 10 going up, you could do a post like “First Videos from WordCamp Seattle 2014” or something.
