As some of you may have noticed, we have fancy badges here. The core team members have a diaspora* star next to their profile icon and a “diaspora* core team” title, which should make pretty clear who we are. However, we have something more interesting: a badge for our most active contributors. Not only do they look fancy (it’s a lovely heart after all), they also grant some moderation permissions (like merging topics to avoid duplication), which should be a win-win for the entire community.
Right now, these badges are awarded to our former core team as well as @comradesenya, @flaburgan and @goob as a sign of appreciation for their work here. There are a lot more awesome people, but I don’t want this to be a “the core team decides who is awesome” kinda thingy. Let’s do this together.
We’ll be taking “nominations”, so please tell us who made a huge impact to the project in your opinion. Obviously, you can exclude the people listed above, since they already got their fancy shiny badge.
