Marketing Team Update – September 21, 2018

The Marketing Team is a strategic resource for other WordPress teams. We also provide copywriting services. Our volunteers are well-equipped and eager. We work independently using in Trello but use our weekly slack meeting to focus on updates.

We meet in Slack every Wednesday morning at 8:00 a.m. Pacific Time as a catch up on our tasks. However, anyone can chat in our Slack channel about anything at any time.

What is the Marketing Team Doing?

Admittedly, it’s been a while since I posted our last update. Apologies.

Quite a few of the Team Reps were at the Contributor Day at WordCamp Nijmegen and we also promoted Siobhan Cunningham to Team Rep.

Publish. Publish. Publish.

We’ve been publishing like crazy — as fast as an open source collaborative can, anyway. We’d love social shares, feedback, and, of course, ideas.

Support Team Meeting Updates for September 13th

General announcements

WordPress 4.9.9 has been given a tentative release date of November 5th. This is subject to change, but is the current working date.

Checking in with international liaisons

Members of the Russian, Hindi, Dutch, Brazilian, Urdu, Swedish, German and Spanish communities were part of this weeks meeting, letting us know things are going well in their respective communities as well.

Open floor

The 404 page on the forums isn’t very helpful, as many things may have happened to a topic before you end up on this page. Adding a bit more information will help users going forward. We’ll be ticketing this and following up on the Meta Trac.

At WordCamp US this year, we’ll be doing another of our onboarding sessions. If there are items you feel should be included please reach out to @zoonini or @bethannon1 and they’ll help facilitate this!

Mobile Team Update – September 11th

WordPress iOS and Android version 10.9 have been released for beta testing.
Sign up here to join the beta program on iOS or follow this link on your Android device, tap on Become a beta tester.

Highlights for the last two weeks:

  • iOS: You can now stick a post to the front page of your site.
  • Android: The Pages section now reflects the actual layout and ordering of pages on your site.
  • We brought more visual consistency to different screens throughout the apps, so getting around is easier.
  • We got rid of some bugs.
  • On mobile Gutenberg we fixed some syncing issues with the Formatting toolbar and worked on the Heading toolbar and the Inserter icons.

Support Team Meeting Updates for September 6th

General announcements

Some page builder themes appear affected by a removed function in Gutenberg (it had been deprecated for a while). Some of them may therefore need updates to be fully compatible with Gutenberg again.

Checking in with international liaisons

Representatives from our Italian, Swedish, Greek, Dutch, Spanish, Russian, Belgian, Brazilian, German and Urdu communities were present during this weeks meetings.

Open floor

When handling reviews, and they need to be archived, remember to inform users of why. This is very apparent with Gutenberg related posts, as many users are first time posters who may not be familiar with forum etiquette. Let them know what is going on and why.

We’ll also be making a more official post about review handling on the make/support page. A few support team members have recently blogged about this privately, but we’ll want something more official we can link back to.


In other news, we’ll be revising the Forum Guidelines, trimming them down and making them more discoverable.

We’ll work on discoverability after revising the content though, to help users more easily digest the content and understand what lies behind it. We’ll be collaborating on this in the coming weeks, so look for a make/support post on that as well.

Code of Conduct Team Update, September 4, 2018

After a summer hiatus, the Code of Conduct team met today. We will resume our regular meetings every other Tuesday at 15:30 UTC in #community-team.

Over the winter, we sent out a survey about the Code of Conduct to the community. We have anonymized the results from the survey. We discussed what format we should use to release those results. The results will be posted here soon. We also discussed our big take-aways from the survey. The short version is: there is a lot of community support for the CoC, but we need to make sure that we implement it correctly. We will discuss the results more when we release them to the public. After that, we will put together another post describing our next steps based on the results of the survey.
