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.orgWordPress.org The community site where WordPress code is created and shared by the users. This is where you can download the source code for WordPress core, plugins and themes as well as the central location for community conversations and organization. https://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:
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!
