WordPress tv Moderator Squad Update

“I try to avoid long-range plans and visions – that way I can more easily deal with anything new that comes up.”
Linus Torvalds

In the past any videos submitted to WordPressTV would be reviewed by a moderator and then scheduled to be published. And to not overwhelm anyone’s feeds, there were 3 or 4 videos scheduled to be published a day. This process along with the time it can take a 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. to edit and submit videos meant that a presentation can be weeks even months old before it was published on WordPressTV.

That has now changed – there is no more scheduling videos for future publication. As soon as a video has gone through the moderation process it is published. And since WordCamp videos tend to come in batches this will shorten the time from submission to publication which means fresher current content.

Having all the information filled in on the submit form, especially the description and links to slides, will now greatly shorten the time from “Submit to Publish” for WordCamp videos.
