#808 Matrix User
Opened a month ago by computerkid. Modified 2 days ago

Badge description (like "You added a co-maintainer to a package. BFF!"):

You entered the Matrix, with Fedora!

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?

-
Getting an account on the Fedora Matrix server(currently not a thing, working through RedHat to get the money).

2) Who is doing them (are they packagers? translators? newcomers? veterans?
users? sponsors?)
-
Anyone with FPCA+1 group membership, who wants a Fedora Matrix account

3) Why are they doing them (is this a means to a different end?)

It let's them get into all the different Fedora rooms, and with a cool server name. It's also an incentive to use matrix, which is more freedom and privacy respecting than other options.

4) When do they do them (every day? once a year?)

-
Once, when they log in to element.

5) How do they do them (by talking in IRC? by running commands in the console?
by using a web interface?)
-
Either a website, or an app

Lastly, do you have any ideas for artwork concepts?

Maybe the Element logo and the Fedora logo?


I have some doubt on wether that's a good idea:
- since I think Fedora would pay for each user, that's giving incentive to people to get there just to get the badge (but maybe that's not a big problem)
- some people already have their own server (I do), some others community also provides matrix hosting, and they would either have to get a duplicate account, or not get the badge.

I think it would be better to have:
- have a badge if you added a matrix userid in noggin
and
- have that account active in Fedora room for enough time

This way, we would drive long term usage of matrix.

I do like that idea.

have that account active in Fedora room for enough time

is there a way to track this?

For now, no, we do not even have the matrix hosting officialy ready. However, this could be done if we add a bot like zodbot (or maybe more than 1 bot, no reason everything should be in 1 single process). Technically, I guess one can also get the history of the chan and process from here using cron.

Hello! Are we doing this? Can I take it up and start with the design process? @computerkid

I don't know, @riecatnor is this one okay to do?

Link to a discussion https://discussion.fedoraproject.org/t/the-future-of-real-time-chat-discussion-for-the-fedora-council/24628 and this issue https://pagure.io/fedora-infrastructure/issue/9522

The domain already registred but the council is waiting for the upstream to release the feature called Spaces, perhaps saving money from finance. But from the point of view, the homeserver is better for the community. I hope it is of great value

Hi @riecatnor @computerkid !
I too came up with a design for this badge.
I searched they keyword "BFF" in the Badges Explore page, and played a little with the design of "Partners in Crime" (https://badges.fedoraproject.org/badge/partners-in-crime) badge to get it to work for this issue (since the tag-line of the badge was the same).

I hope this works.

Hi @riecatnor @computerkid , I designed a badge for this issue based on an idea I had.
The idea was to represent a few contributing roles in the fedora community (design, writing, translation and Infrastructure with cute pandas; and the fedora logo) to symbolize the fedora community and an approaching panda to symbolize a user that’s ready to join the community, the matrix logo right above the panda symbolizes the need for the user to go through matrix as a prerequisite to joining the fedora community.
In simpler words; A matrix user as a subset of the fedora community.
I’m open to reviews and corrections, kindly give feedback on this. Thank you!

Hi folks! Sorry I seemed to miss this one :( I am here now tho! Ok, so I tend to agree with @misc 's comment: https://pagure.io/fedora-badges/issue/808#comment-725771

Let's take a look at what the badge will be awarded for:
- have a badge if you added a matrix userid in noggin
and
- have that account active in Fedora room for enough time

Let's think of concepts we can extrapolate from that (trying to avoid using logos as well):
- The Matrix reference... We could reference the movie, subtly of course, perhaps with a panda in a shiny coat wearing sunglasses in front of a laptop?
- Chat room.. it could be a desktop screen with a chat window (I think @dhairya15 is getting close, but perhaps do something different than the logos)

Hey @riecatnor ! Thanks for the description. I have created a draft accordingly.
I would your opinion on the Panda's design here, before I can move forward.
I also have been going through the guidelines for designing badges. I have attempted to adhere to it.

I have been using Adobe Illustrator and faced problems with implementing the standard dimensions and dpi.
I've began learning Inkscape and will soon be shifting to it for the next iteration.
I'm sorry for no using it already, however I'd love your feedback on the design.

Hi @riecatnor , thanks for the review. I redesigned this based on your suggestions. I chose the fedora blue for the panda and the chat window on the screen has the matrix green (I hope that’s okay) and fedora blue to symbolize the matrix and fedora. I’m open to further corrections and feedback :))
