WordPress.tv moderator squad: Meetup recap

The ModSquad gathered for a chat in IRC today to discuss some of the recent changes on WordPress.tv. The following items were discussed:

  • Changes to the Planet WordPress feed and blog.wordpress.tv
  • Using the “Featured” tag to promote content for weekly “Staff Picks” blog posts
  • Videos are featured based on technical quality (good sound/picture, slides clearly visible) and not content, which is already high quality.
  • Coming soon: creating a publicize connection to the 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. Twitter account to promote videos as they are published.
  • Post production – underway with first camp. Mods in attendance asked if they want to help edit slides into presentations
  • First mod-produced video (editing in presentation slides) here. Props @roseapplemedia

As always, if you are a mod, and couldn’t make it on IRC, or just want to see what was discussed in more detail, the chat log is available here.
