Looks good @bd808!
Okay! These fixes are done!
@dcausse Great. I will make these changes.
@Zbyszko @dcausse @Mstyles I have just published all three posts. Can you take a look and make sure everything is correct? Let me know if you want me to make any changes or additions. Once you feel they look good, let me know, and I will send out an announcment.

@Miriam Checking in to see if there has been any progress on this. Let me know if I can be of help!
As I understand it, there are still some outstanding issues on @Mstyles posts, but the other two are ready to go. Let me know if this is correct or if I need to be looking out for changes to the other two?
@nskaggs Thanks for creating this task! I'm really looking forward to reading this. Can you please open up permission to the doc so that I'm able to leave some comments/suggested edits?

Hi Everyone ~ Just a general announcement that the deadline for the Outreachy applications has been moved to November 6! So you all have an extra day to work on and submit your applications.

@Suha_098 Thank you for the info! We know that there can be a lot of different factors that contributions--including background noise (and it's definitely hard to get good sound when there are firecrackers going off in the background!).
@Suha_098 Thank you for submitting the video! The content was good, but it was really difficult to hear. There seems to be some issue with the sound quality. You may want to check it, and share again.
@siyabonga_ngele Nice work integrating the suggested changes to this! I think these were good improvements to an already well-made tutorial. I see what you mean about the watermark, though. We can look more into open source solutions for this, but don't feel you need to revise the video again to try to remove it at this point.
@Ekefre You did a really great job integrating the feedback! The tutorial is much more suited for an audience of Wikimedia contributors, and I understand not only how to use the tool but why I would want to use it. Nice work!

Hi @Ekefre! Thank you for sharing your video tutorial! It was an interesting take on the pageview analysis tool. Wikimedia is a nonprofit company, so I don't typically think of the tools as supporting business cases. For the tutorials we create for the Outreachy round, we'll be thinking about how the tools can support the efforts of folks working on Wikimedia projects, so you may want to consider this audience if you make changes to the tutorial.

Thanks, @Tirus.W for sharing your video with us! I really liked this tutorial. It was thorough and well-paced! I really felt like you gave a full tour of this feature in a short time. Nice work.
Thanks for sharing this video! I thought that it was very clear and thorough and had a good pace and structure. I did notice that some of the graphics were squished (particularly towards the end of the video), though it may have been hard to get them on the screen. Have you considered adding subtitles for better accessibility? It may be more complicated because you have text at the bottom of some of the slides already -- so it's something to think about for future tutorials.

Great! This is fixed!
@Miracleonyi25 You are not asking too many questions! :-) The process can be complicated, especially if it is your first time applying!!! And I'm happy to help as best I can.
@Miracleonyi25 I just took another look in that Zulip channel and it might not be the right place to ask this question.
@Miracleonyi25 For your video, I thought you did a great job! I would suggest considering subtitles to help improve accessibility.
@Miracleonyi25 I'm not sure I understand the deadline question you asked, but hopefully, I can clarify. This microtask is associated with the Outreachy program, and the Outreachy application deadline for this round is November 5, 2021.
@Urbanecm_WMF Let's publish it as is. If you hear back about the last bit of information, I'm more than happy to edit the post later to include the information.
@Dagggg12 and others,

@Victoria_26 Thanks for the changes you made to the video! I think you made some good edits to the video! It is much more concise and moves a lot faster without being overwhelming!
@ELescak That sounds like a great idea. I'd think a post like that would work really well on the blog.
Oct 25 2021
@Zbyszko @dcausse @Mstyles I'm working on formatting these posts for the blog. I noticed that @dcausse's post has a ton of different images in it. In order to give this trio of posts a cohesive feel, should we add some images to the other two posts?
@dcausse Just checking in on timing. I'd like to post these maybe later next week but only if you are ready.
Hi @ELescak! Thanks for sharing this. This is a very exciting announcement, but I'm not quite sure that it fits the brief of the blog, yet. In its current form, it's a good fit for a mailing list or general announcement. Is there a way we could work with this to give it more content and make it more appropriate as a blog post?

@Urbanecm_WMF I made some additional comments to the doc. Once you've accepted/declined them, let me know. I think this is ready to move over to the blog to prep for publication.
Oct 20 2021
Okay this is done!
@aborrero Thanks for taking a look at this. I'll make the fixes today and then share the post!
Oct 19 2021
@Urbanecm Good work! This was a really interesting post! I made some suggestions on the doc. I also noticed that there were still some outstanding notes from other folks. Let me know when you feel those are resolved, and I'll take another pass before publishing.
Thanks, @aborrero! This looks good! I am going to move it over to the blog and prep it for publication! I should publish it in the next day or two.
