Aja, This is the main issue. If someone has 1000 titles but has earn them
all, then it's fine. It's just a matter of see if the person is
contributing actively in everything that he/she claim be part of; and if
not, make him/her earn it.
I use Fedora as my main OS, however, I have been hosting an event that
brings every Open Distro to the table for about 8 years; so, it should be
more a "have you earn it?" question. Remember that an ambassador should
become one "only" when he has proved that deserves the title, not because
"he/she might deserve it".
Ambassador should be a prize, not something to catch potential contributors.
Both Jiri and Maria made very good points here. This is not to say
that we have a current Ambassador problem. But if we were to throw
Ambassador titles around as easily as, say, a badge for making an
account, it would devalue the subcommunity pretty quickly.
I've heard stories from contributors about other communities throwing
around titles or other resources, which ultimately results in less
value by and from the community overall. We definitely don't want to
go down that path.
