“Every article must be proofread,” has long been the minimum requirement for news articles on typo3.org. As of Sunday 12 November 2023, this requirement applies to event information as well.
When you submit an article or event information using the Content Request Form, it enters the established editorial workflow of the TYPO3 Content Group. They can't help you organize the event, but they will help you describe the details.
The team uses a Trello board to plan and manage content. Every submission using the Content Request Form creates a card on this public board — where you can track the status of your card at any time. The board is used to manage all new community content for typo3.org — and sometimes typo3.com — through the necessary planning and quality assurance steps. The Content Group also use the slack channel #t3a-content-group to update community members about their submissions.
We encourage you to submit the Content Request Form as soon as you know the date of your event. This may feel premature, but will help you market the event because …
- Your message will be optimized: With writing, copyediting, and proofreading help.
- Team leads, and TYPO3 Association and TYPO3 Company representatives can plan the event into their busy schedules early.
- You’ll be part of a conversation about how to promote your event on typo3.org.
- A news article can be prepared and published when the registration opens. (If you plan more articles, that’s even better.)
- You’ll see more mentions by official social media channels.
- We’ll help get an event report published — to create fear-of-missing-out on your next event.
