#462 Badge for moderators of official Fedora IRC channels.
Closed: Duplicate None Opened 5 years ago by swathe.

Badge description (like "You added a co-maintainer to a package. BFF!"):
- "You've been given OP in an official Fedora IRC channel!"
Help the badges team understand what this idea is all about. If this badge is awarded for certain kinds of activities:

1) What are those activities?
- Contributing in discussion and a trusted user of IRC helping the community.
2) Who is doing them (are they packagers? translators? newcomers? veterans? users? sponsors?)
- People who maintain a helpful and consistent presence in the respective official Fedora IRC channels
3) Why are they doing them (is this a means to a different end?)
- To keep the IRC channels in good order and that participants adhere to community guidelines and helping people with their queries.
5) How do they do them (by talking in IRC? by running commands in the console? by using a web interface?)
- IRC of course :)

Lastly, do you have any ideas for artwork concepts?

Maybe something along the lines of a shepherd watching over a flock or a similar sort of metaphor.


@tatica, nice work! Can you make another version where the badger captain graphic stays inside the inner background area? :)

This badge needs changes to zodbot to detect changes to identify IRC moderator

Reviewing this ticket, it seems that the purpose of this badge is confusing in light of the [https://badges.fedoraproject.org/badge/your-call-may-be-monitored-for-quality-assurance Your call may be monitored for quality assurance] defined in #246. For official Fedora channels, members of the IRC Support SIG are given OP in channels. Since we already have that badge, I think another badge for IRC operators is a little confusing. It also doesn't help that this is not possible to identity in fedmsg (we also don't have a way to identity what is or is not an official Fedora channel).

I'm sad that we already have some awesome artwork here, but I don't think this is a badge we can implement at this time. :( I'm going to close this ticket as a duplicate for the time being.
