"wow that's great" ticket type or other kudos feedback channels

sometimes I see something on a mayfirst page, or just notice something about the setup here, and I think, "Wow, well done!" I wonder if it would make any sense to have an appreciation ticket type.

Hi Patrick,

Thanks for this idea! We'll discuss it at our face to face and see what people think. I for one would like the occasional appreciation ticket.

:) We should definitely support some channels for people to give positive feedback, i like this idea!

I'm not sure the ticketing system is the right place for some of it, though -- some people who deserve these kind of plaudits don't follow the ticketing system.

One option if you think something is well done, and you have a blog, you could write a short post about what you think is well done, and post about it, then come into IRC and point people to it, or write an e-mail to the folks who might be involved. I look forward to discussing it tomorrow.

Thanks, Patrick!

I've just came to this idea by a marxistvegan selling the next support meeting as hacking day ;-) Nice done! I mean, we could show right on the MF/PL main site, something like a "Wall of appreciation", similar to what other people does into their sites as "Testimonials". It's far from being merely a kudos to the guy/gal(s) who worked so hard, crafting a new webapp, defending a server, communicating difficult concepts in an easier to understand way, etc.

We can actually show the way we work not in a capitalist way of selling us, but attracting other talented people to work supporting their projects with us, or even contributing their projects to us. This is why I translated the "Reasons to join MF/PL", and if we can show actually the kudos, we could link that love to the way a team did it, like the stand Ross did against the DDoS on Sahara reporters, and even documented it.

So, I go with dkg when he suggests we'd appreciate if some people publish in their spaces and we get noticed about it, but we shouldn't let that love gets lost, but preserving that in our sites the way keeps some contents of the web by their own value, even after they've disappeared.
