  • Profile Badges
    @samuelsidler got us up-to-date on the Training profile badge situation. Meta folks are trying to figure out why the training badge isn’t showing up. There is a ticket for it: also talked about automating badges. @liljimmi proposed: editing a lesson plan or having a user role of Editor and above earns a badge. People agreed that any edit should earn a badge, but not just having an author user role.

    @juliekuehl mentioned wanting to keep a manual option for folks who test plans.
