WordPress.tv Moderator Squad Update

“Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened.”

Just finished a very enjoyable two days at 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. San Francisco (the last WCSF) and then an intense three days at the Community Summit. We were able to publish The State of the WordState of the Word This is the annual report given by Matt Mullenweg, founder of WordPress at WordCamp US. It looks at what we’ve done, what we’re doing, and the future of WordPress. https://wordpress.tv/tag/state-of-the-word/. and the Town Hall Meeting videos within hours after they happened.

At the Community Summit we were able to put the finishing touches on some documents for adding new mods, for the buddy system for new mods and a rewriting of the Moderator handbook. And we were able to get nice drafts for some other needed documents. We were also able to do a lot of clean-up in categorizes, video tags, language tags, authors and moderators. And we also ended up with a list of issues that we can address later.

And if that wasn’t enough we have a new way to communicate – SlackSlack Slack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform https://slack.com/. The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at https://make.wordpress.org/chat/.. This will improve our ability to communicate both with each other and as a team.

The Last 7 Days

We published 16 videos from 6 WordCamps around the world. Videos from WordCamp Dallas/Fort Worth are being uploaded and videos from WordCamp New York will be uploaded soon.
