Would it be good for TDF Members to have a badge they can display on their home pages? And could there be some other badges to display the contributions and so the meritocraty? As it is a strategy to give all contributors an appreciation such badges could be part of it.

The badges can be used on

First proposal based on Nik's proposal 4,5

The valuation (gold, silver, bronze) should be done by some defined criteria for every project, based on strengthness and duration of contributions. "Quality" shouldn't be a criteria, because most of quality isn't valuable. Maybe the badges will be awarded by the MC. But this is not part of this Whiteboard.

Levels could create a bit of a chasm between contributors. Project-internally it might be a good/useful metric, especially for developers/deciders looking to see who to trust from us more, who to maybe be a bit more careful about. Obviously, it is not completely objective ... but that should be not a huge problem. We could maybe rename the categories to roughly One-Time/Sustained/ Current Activity. (Thanks to Stefan for this points to think of).
