Hi Tom, thanks for sharing this feedback on the list. This feedback was
directly used when planning the upcoming Badges FAD.
1) User badges
Goal: Provide an opportunity for a deeper community engagement for
Fedora users, and a gentle on-ramp to moving from user to contributor.
Prompt users to opt-in to local badges during initial setup (if they do,
have them attach a FAS account or create one).
Run a local fedmsg daemon which sends notifications of local badges over
to Fedora Badges.
Examples "Installed Fedora 29!", "KDE User", "Updater Level
Some of these are likely very far away even now, but I read one way to
accomplish this goal is to integrate Badges into more of the
fast-moving, exciting places where Fedora is innovating.
This idea is related to this goal we identified for the FAD:
2) Badge sets
Goal: Encourage deeper levels of Fedora engagement
Have a set with five badges, when all badges are earned, you unlock a
set badge. This can encourage people to do specific behaviors that we
want them to do (or need more help doing).
This functionality has existed for some years already in Badges, but
there is no documentation to explain how it works or how to set up new
badges (even for admins). It would be nice to finally get documentation
around this written. It could fit into this goal we identified for our FAD:
2A) Swag rewards for badge sets
Complete this badge set, get a Fedora Badger shirt. Or whatever.
Admittedly, this did not make it into the FAD proposal. But if we manage
to get someone like Matthew or Brian in the room, this would be a great
side conversation to have too.
