"Hear ye, hear ye..." is a call that historically announced meetings in America's Town Halls. These days, such a herald is often an electronic one.
At 2pm (US Eastern, 7pm UTC) on Saturday, November 19th, Fandom cordially invites all users to attend a very special "town hall" gathering of our own. "Portability: a Fandom Town Hall" is an event meant to educate, to inspire, and for us to listen and hear from you. Live stream at https://primetime.bluejeans.com/a2m/live-event/ez67530.
Three presentations are scheduled for this two-hour portability festival, each followed by a session for questions and answers:
- "Portability, Elements, and Articles" by Isaac Fischer (FishTank)
- "Best Practices with Images" by CzechOut
- "Looking Forward: Portability and Mobile" by Stuart Robbins (TwoTailedFox) of Vanguard
These presentations are geared towards editors who are novice to moderate at making templates, but will have some insights for more advanced users, too. We'll also be talking about what Vanguard, Fandom's newest volunteer team, does for communities to be more portable and future-proof. The presentations (videos, slides, and other documents) will be available afterwards, so if you miss the live event, you can catch up later.
Finally, the event will conclude with an Ask-Me-Anything-style round-table, where the presenters and special guests will answer your portability-related questions. If you want to know about the future of portable content, features, and elements, this is one event you shouldn't miss. (If you can't attend live, post questions as comments here, and we'll try to include the best of them, time permitting, in the recorded broadcast.)
In true portable fashion, there are three ways to tune in:
- By web browser on BlueJeans. (No plugins or installs needed for Chrome; Flash or a plugin required for other browsers.)
- By mobile app for iPhone/iPad or Android
- By desktop app on Windows and Mac (and some Linux distributions)
Use the link https://primetime.bluejeans.com/a2m/live-event/ez67530 or event code ez67530 to access the event. Viewers are encouraged to test the setup ahead of time.
All in all, portability is a hot topic that most communities should know about for their core audiences; the more accessible your content is, the more it can be seen and heard by a global world. We hope you'll join us for this special event!
