Camouflage Fishing Set Black100 Bag Storage Tactical Rod Armygreen100 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!

Change will not come if we wait for some other person of if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.

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.

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.

For moderators, when flagging an account, remember to alwaysbody Paola Handbags Girly Dark Bag Cross Womens Taupe vqfxxa6U reply and let the user know why and what this means for them.

Once they’ve behaved, remember to unflag accounts again, it’s not a permanent position after all, and remember to retain all user notes, there’s no situation where a note should need to be deleted.

Checking in with international liaisons

Representatives from the Italian, Spanish and Pakistani communities took part during this weeks meeting.

Open Floor

A question was brought forth on how to deal with bad reviews on the forums.

In general, you will, at some point, receive negative feedback. It is impossible to please everyone. We promote good replies to bad reviews as the best approach, users care that authors take the time to respond and try to help users.

Ignore the stars, see past them and instead see the person behind the review, and try to find out why they had a bad experience, and try to turn it into something positive.

Reporting topics

An illustration of a previously reported topic, showing what account reported it.

We’ve got a new option for reporting topics, on the right hand sidebar of any topic, there is now a Report this topic link that any logged in user may use.

When they use this button, it adds the `modlook` tag to the post, and registers who made the report. The information on the reporter of course is only visible to moderators.

When and how to tag users

When tagging a user, you should always add a user note, please also add the note from the topic/post that caused the reaction, that way it’s automatically linked to. Also, describe why a tag was done, don’t add a bunch of links, as tags are global across rosetta sites as well, it’s not possible for many to look at archived posts cross-network.

As for when to tag a user, if they are repeatedly violating the guidelines, or there’s a high probability of a first time offender repeating their actions, you may tag them (remember to leave a reply explaining that they are tagged, what that means for them, and why). For the majority of users, a first time offense is not a reason to tag them, they just didn’t read the guidelines (although we wish they had), adding a user note mentioning they’ve been warned for whatever behavior is a great reaction to a first time offense, along with informing them of what they did wrong.
