Community Team Chats – October 4, 2018

(Note: I am almost done posting four months of chats after a period of inactivity. Unfortunately we couldn’t find anyone in the team to do this task, so bear with me while I update everything!)

The Community Team meets twice a month, first and third Thursday, at two different times to cover different timezones.

Agenda and Slack logs from October 4th: 11:00 UTC and 20:00 UTC

Deputy Check-in

Even busier when the Automatticians are not around 🙂

P2 posts needing review/feedback

This month was quite light in terms of discussion, so we focused again on two posts that were already brought on September 20th Chat

Proposal to Increase the Maximum Ticket Price for WordCamps
Note that we are not telling WordCamps to increase their ticket prices, but we are having a (long) conversation about the possibility to raise the maximum possible price that would be allowed to go for if they need to. 
All Camps are still encouraged to make their prices as affordable as possible.

Most of commenters are up for 5 $/€ increase and emphasize the importance of sponsors – which are bit hard to find for some camps. We maybe should focus and have some effort on how to help camps find sponsors easier.

Input Requested: “Building A Diverse Speaker Roster” Document
The Diversity Outreach Speaker Training group created a document for WordPress Meetups and WordCamps about Building A Diverse Speaker Roster and they need our input.

Highlighted P2 posts

Open Floor

The issue of branded content from sponsors in WordCamps website was brought up: there are some concerns about the marketing nature of the posts. A post will be published on the Community Team blog to discuss the matter.
