I was roaming around mozilla.org when I happened to come across the contributor stories. When I brought this up in the mozillians group on Telegram, I came to know that this was a good initiative by the CBT under Larissa but then got obsolete and un-updated after the CBT got disbanded and the team was re-assigned elsewhere.
The initiative was a good one to bring out the cool stories of the mozillians all over the world. It would be good if someone (preferably the participation team, because they’re the best team that is supposed to handle this kind of stuff) to take this initiative over and continue telling the stories of the many great mozillians all over the world. We’ve got a lot of stories of so many of our many cool volunteers. But they aren’t recognized.
As I see it, this can be implemented in 2 ways :
We have monthly recognitions at different levels (contributor, reps, FSA, etc) within mozilla, we could use these people’s stories to update the stories on a monthly basis.
We could identify active volunteers who haven’t been recognized in any of the above mentioned categories and tell their stories. This would give more people a chance to tell their stories. But identifying such people would be difficult, so hence, we could update the stories on a quarterly basis if this option is chosen.
But either way, the point is that the initiative was a good one, and we shouldn’t just let it sit there obsolete.
If you have a better idea, go ahead and join in the discussion. Let’s have an open discussion. I’ve filed a bug and sent an email to the CBT mailing list on the same topic as well. Hope you engage somewhere and shed your opinions on this. Looking forward to hearing from you with your opinion on the matter.
