Once again it’s been a few months since I’ve posted anything, but there has been a lot of blog-worthy things happening with community building at Mozilla to talk about.
We’ve made the first localizations of the Get Involved page live in Spanish, French and Dutch. Mozilla Hispano has also created an embeddable version of the Get Involved form that they’ve added to their site to make connecting with new volunteers even easier.
The Webdev Stewards are creating badges that can be given to people who help out with Mozilla’s web sites. We just finished an open design project to create the badges and will announce the winner of that soon. We also had a brown bag about what’s going on with badges for contributors if you’d like to learn more.
A number of interesting participation metrics projects have also been in the works, including a new dashboard showing contributions across Firefox releases. This has given us the ability to thank people making their first contributions with each Firefox release.
We’re also planning on getting people involved with community building together in person to make plans for the rest of the year and to make sure we’re focing limited resources on the highest priority community building needs. More on this coming soon.
I’ll try to blog more often about what I’m working on, but if not then look for another summary post in about 4 or 5 months
