I would be (politely) opposed to this.
Badges, Karma, Reputation, Beans and other identifiers of status are useful in the help forums, an imperfect-but-effective clue to help determine the skilled from the unskilled.
However, I think the working teams and projects of the Community Hub are different:
- A team is a relationship, not a one-time help transaction.
- On most teams, I think it’s apparent pretty quickly who the leaders and main contributors are.
- Contributors drift in and out. Like Ubuntu Membership, a badge may simply mean that somebody was a great contributor on some project at some time. But it doesn’t say anything about today or about the team’s subject at hand.
