#769 Idea: "Participated in a Test Day" Series of Badges
Opened 8 months ago by coremodule. Modified 6 days ago

Badge description (like "You added a co-maintainer to a package. BFF!"):
-You participated in a test day! You participated in 3 test days! You participated in 5 test days! You participated in 10 test days! You participated in 25 test days!

Help the badges team understand what this idea is all about. If this badge is
awarded for certain kinds of activities:

I'm not certain if I can request a series of badges, or if each badge should be it's own pagure ticket, I'm happy to make the new tickets if need be. My idea here is to promote and reward the Fedora users who participate in Fedora QA testdays. We have Heroes of Fedora at the end of each release to celebrate those users who engaged in a lot of validation test/bug reports, but we have no recognition method for test days. I think it would be beneficial to Fedora as a whole to recognize these folks too. We have several different badges that a part of a series (I'm thinking specifically of the kernel regression testing badges or the wiki editor badges) that offer users more badges for more testing/editing/etc. I would like to see these issued in that same way: if a user attends more than one test day, they are recognized for that.

1) What are those activities?
-Participating in Fedora QA-organized test days

2) Who is doing them (are they packagers? translators? newcomers? veterans?
users? sponsors?)
-General QA userbase, could be newcomers or veterans of Fedora

3) Why are they doing them (is this a means to a different end?)
-They are participating in the test days to help find bugs/flaws/general problems with a specific component in Fedora, for example Btrfs by default: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Test_Day:2020-07-08_Btrfs_default?rd=Test_Day:F33_btrfs_by_default_2020-07-08

4) When do they do them (every day? once a year?)
-To provide Fedora with a broader scope regarding it's quality and depth of testing

5) How do they do them (by talking in IRC? by running commands in the console?
by using a web interface?)
-It is usually by installing a component and then running said component, but this could be through the GUI or the TUI. It just depends on the specific case.

Lastly, do you have any ideas for artwork concepts?
-I don't know how exactly to bring this concept to life... perhaps a sun to indicate day, and... ?

@camiarias Please let me know how I can help! I'm not an artist or designer, but I'll do what I can to help!

Hi @ooree I am unclear what concept you are going for with this, can you clarify? The colors are all blending together, I would suggest adding in some contrast to begin :)

EDIT: Re-uploading SVGs with correct dimensions

Hello @riecatnor I apologise for just getting back to you. Finally finished my finals about an hour ago, I'll work on the backgroundcontrast. The conceptis the panda is holding holding a spanner with a check Mark on top of it to show they "did" the eat day. The varying items, balloon, cake, and tiara are rewards

Hello @camiarias @coremodule , this looks super good, welldone @camiarias ,

I totally support this initiative. Fedora Test-days are announced in lists, fedora magazine, blogs, everywhere, to reach everyone, so I think it is nice to award people who show up and contribute to this tests, especially in a regular way.
