#551 New "Necromancer" badge, for adding karma on stable packages.
Opened 3 years ago by mcsontos. Modified 2 years ago

Badge description (like "You added a co-maintainer to a package. BFF!"):
- "This horse is dead, stop beating it!"

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?
- Updating karma on updates which are already in stable
- Updating karma on EOL packages

2) Who is doing them (are they packagers? translators? newcomers? veterans?
users? sponsors?)
- likely Newcomers, students who got an assignment? - an example here: https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/users/sahr2397, and https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/users/aishvarya and https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/users/suvesri

3) Why are they doing them (is this a means to a different end?)
- I would like to know that. May be they want a badge...

4) When do they do them (every day? once a year?)
- Seems a lot recently. If it was not summer break, I would guess a homework.

5) How do they do them (by talking in IRC? by running commands in the console?
by using a web interface?)
-

Lastly, do you have any ideas for artwork concepts?
- Green panda with flies around

@mcsontos Hey, I've made an artwork for this badge (it's bit different than your idea). Let me know if you like it.

1) What are those activities?
- Updating karma on updates which are already in stable
- Updating karma on EOL packages

This badge idea overlaps with https://badges.fedoraproject.org/badge/missed-the-train

So maybe we only want this part:

  • Updating karma on EOL packages

@svitek I love the artwork. Bodhi badges have green border, could you please change it?

@svitek nice. Heh, there should be a "Senior", "Principal" and "Consulting necromancer" too for repeated offenders... ;-)

@mcsontos Are you sure that it's technically possible? Just to make sure before I start working on it.

@svitek Only joking, though it should be possible - almost everything is technically possible, but not everything is worth it. Neither does the above mentioned "Missed the train" have a level 2 ("Missed the flight") and level 3 ("Missed Mars mission launch") badges - we do not want to promote mistakes by awarding them silver, gold and platinum badges. ;-)

I know people (hehe, guess who?) who would deliberately add karma to stable packages to receive those badges. Now they only do it once, not 15 times to receive the next level badge.

@svitek OMGOODNESS. I love it!!!! two of the smallest little things to fix :) one, can you make cloud on left side go off badge artwork area like the cloud on the right? two, try making features of panda ghost a little(!!) darker, doesn't need much but right now the light grey is blending with the white. Thanks for this awesome artwork!

@svitek have you had a chance to make the few small changes I suggested? This badge needs to be pushed! its so cool :)

@riecatnor I'm sorry for delay. There is a version with changes you suggested.

@svitek looks so awesome! this design rocks. going to set to approved and it is ready to push!
