WPTV Blog: Post video interviews from various YouTube channels of community members

At Mods Team we are all working hard on editing, reviewing and posting the content from various WordCamps and WordPress Related Events. Making a video interviews for WPTV is a really great idea by @jwparky, thank you John for all your help and effort you put in 😉 and to all the people showing up in our 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/. #wptv channel. In any case, it takes a lot of time and for now only John is interested in making it real (of course with our support 😀).

I have this idea, started in our todays mod chat meeting, about searching for the already existent content and people in the community who already producing great video interviews, there are already several.

Why just not take all the great video content, already produced by people from the community, and make our WPTV blog a central platform of all the videos about WordPress? (Making sure they meets your video guidelines.)

We can follow some channels with our YouTube account and stay up to date on all the new materials coming online.

Some channels to consider (in my opinion):

I think reposting only the videos from WPTV, hand picked by us, is not enough, and we can take more advantage of the WPTV blog, which was completely dormant since some years, and transform it in a wider platform.

Let’s bring all the forces together and everybody wins 😉 📺

Please, I need your feedback on this idea

More on WordPress.tv 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 http://blog.wordpress.tv/ (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 https://www.meetup.com/. 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 meetup.com 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.
