What the badge should be granted for:
As all those who have seen him in action know, our very own Toshio is an awesome dancer. However, his exceptional abilities may be intimidating for those around, and as a result the sad reality is that Toshio is usually left alone dancing in the middle of an amazed, flabbergasted crowd, forming a circle around him in awe.
We, the Fedora Community, should make use of the powerful and intimate bonds that arise when dancing with someone, to work towards ending the [http://giftofocpd.com/2013/01/07/the-loneliness-of-the-gifted-and-genius/ loneliness of being a genius] syndrome that seems to stick to Toshio. Our community will only be stronger.
We don't need many people dancing with him to break the ice, it is certainly within our reach.
I dream of a future where Toshio could fully express his techniques with the complicity and trust of many dance partners, responding to his moves and being pushed forward by him in the arts of dancing; exchanging, learning, growing as a vibrant community.

Anything else we need to know:
I think Toshio should be the one allowed to award this badge. He can choose if the performance is worthy, not only considering the technique but most importantly the quality of the human connection.
Tatica has offered to do the artwork, many thanks to you dear.
Badge: Dancing with Toshio Mockup #1
Hey! just upload a first mockup; send me some feedback so we can let this badge rock!
Haha, nice! What's in the right hand? Looks like a cane? And how about extending the pointer finger in the raised hand?
Are you thinking of something along the lines of [http://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%A4%D0%B0%D0%B9%D0%BB:Saturday_night_fever.jpg this picture]? ;-)
[https://www.google.com/webhp#q=saturday+night+fever&safe=off&tbm=isch This Google Images search] has some inspiration...
Due to the recent news about Toshio, I'd really love to see this badge become reality. What should I do? :-)
We need an svg and multiple design-team members (at least two) to agree on a design. :)
Oh yes. Yes yes yes yes yes.
