Webmaker Badges beta testing: how to help

Webmaker badges (beta) is live on https://webmaker.mofostaging.net! Here's everything you need to know to help us beta test.

What badges are available?

Currently, there are two badges live on webmaker.mofostaging.net:

  1. Webmaker Super Mentor badge : This badge is for mentors who have gone above and beyond in contributing to the Webmaker project. Super Mentors currently have the ability to issue the Hive Community Member badge. Later this summer, Super Mentors will have the ability to issue Webmaker Mentor badges and Web Literacy badges.

  2. Hive Community Member badge: This badge is for active Hive Network members that have demonstrated abilities in Peer Observation, Resource Sharing, and Process Documentation.

What is 'staging'?

'Staging' is like a sandbox. It's (webmaker.mofostaging.net) our test server for webmaker.org. That means any badges you earn or issue won't be connected to your real Webmaker account. You won't be earning the badges for real -- you'll just be helping us test out the process.

Where do my badges show up?

On your Webmaker profile page. (staging) You can find your profile page at a URL like this one: https://webmaker.mofostaging.net/user/#!/[username]/badges.

For example, this is k88hudson's profile page.

How do I apply for badges?

Click the Apply button on either of these pages:

How do I issue badges?

You must be an administrator or have a Webmaker Super Mentor badge.

To issue the Hive Community Member, make sure you are signed in to Persona. Click the "Issue badge" button on that page.

How do I approve badge applications?

You must have a Webmaker Super Mentor badge or be an administrator to approve badge applications. Here's how to do it:

1) Sign into Badgekit with Persona. Click on the "Applications" tab.
(If you don't see this tab or any badge applications, contact @k88hudson or @echristensen on IRC to add you to the admin group.)

Applications tab

2) Click on the +[number] button to see all badge applications

3) In the "Criteria" tab, make sure you click 'Meets criterion' for each criterion.

4) In the "Finish" tab, click "Submit Review" to submit your review.

I'm a Webmaker or Hive administrator. What else can I do to help test?

First, make sure you have a Webmaker admin account on mofostaging. There should be a little admin badge next to your username in the top right corner of the staging site. If there isn't, ask @k88hudson, @cade or @jbuck in #webmaker on IRC to make you an admin.

What's next? When is this shipping to the live webmaker.org site?

We're planning to ship everything you see here to the live site by June 13.
