Tide profile badges

If you are a maintainer or contributor to Tide, then you may have noticed that Tide Team or Tide Contributor badges have been added to your WordPress.org profile pages (example here). In short, maintainers receive the Team badge while contributors receive the Contributor badge.

The Team badge uses the Tide dashicon with a light blue background and the Contributor badge uses the Tide dashicon with a plain white background:

Tide Team

The Tide Team badge will be manually assigned to all active Tide maintainers – i.e those who are listed as “Maintainers” on this page (also here).

Tide Contributor

The Tide Contributor badge will be manually assigned to those who provide valuable contributions to Tide — i.e. those who are listed as “Contributors” on this page (also here, here, and here).


The easiest way to have the Tide Team or Tide Contributor badges assigned to you is for you to request them (the system doesn’t allow us to add the badge to your profile until you submit a request). To make this request please go the Tide Team or Tide Contributor pages and request membership for the group.


To find out more about how to get involved, please check out the Tide Contributing Guide.

We hope that with these new badges, we will be able to recognize all of the work that so many people do to grow the Tide project all around the world!
