There have been various conversations recently around issuing badges as recognition for Labs members’ roles and achievements. Now before you say, "badges? we don't need no stinkin' badges!" , you should know that a few of us have already rigged up a simple system that displays badges on members' pages based on Jekyll member attributes (example: http://okfnlabs.org/members/rgrp/ ). Badges (essentially, Font Awesome 3.2.1 icons superimposed on a badge-shaped png) we’re currently issuing are listed here: http://okfnlabs.org/join/#get-recognized . We're looking for ideas for other types of roles and achievements we should recognize with a pretty badge. Check out these GitHub issues for more info:
Ideally, it would be nice to use this work to inform a more general solution based on Mozilla's Open Badges, and there has already been some work in that direction:
Looking forward to your feedback/suggestions on this topic.
