I thought it might be worth a discussion on how social media engagement is undertaken by people in the community. This post is in response to some feedback I’ve seen on Twitter to the GetClassicPress account.
Obviously, everyone wants to get the word out, but we need to make sure the tone of this is the best it can be to attract people to ClassicPress. I don’t necessarily agree with all of the feedback that was given,but thinking about it, amusing as the jumping menu gif was, it might be better if such posts were not from the official ClassicPress account so that this project can take the high ground.
At the moment it is natural that a lot of the engagement is around WordPress 5 and Gutenberg as these will be the drivers for a lot of people complaining on Twitter (and other fora) who might consider a move away from WordPress.
However, the feedback is correct that an overriding positive message for ClassicPress is needed and to be done in a way which focuses on the positives of ClassicPress as opposed to the negatives.
Is there an official message of this type or is it something which needs to be discussed?
