In recent years, a number of new Working Groups have appeared on the Community Team. These include:
These groups all rely on and need volunteers to help accomplish their projects, all of great value to the WordPress community!
Historically, Community Contributor badges have been assigned to WordCamp WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress. They're one of the places where the WordPress community comes together to teach one another what they’ve learned throughout the year and share the joy. Learn more. Mentors Event Supporter (formerly Mentor) is someone who has already organised a WordCamp and has time to meet with their assigned mentee every 2 weeks, they talk over where they should be in their timeline, help them to identify their issues, and also identify solutions for their issues. and Community Deputies Community Program Supporters (formerly Deputies) are a team of people worldwide who review WordCamp and Meetup applications, interview lead organizers, and keep things moving at WordCamp Central. Find more about program supporters in our Program Supporter Handbook. to recognize their continued contributions to the Community Team. Working group volunteers demonstrate similar commitment and support of Community Team goals and projects by spending time and effort on projects specific to working groups.
Because of this, I would like to propose that we manually assign the Community Contributor badge to contributors who have actively participated for at least one month on any Working Group, as identified by each Working Group lead.
