Full description of the idea
I would like to have an icon on my user info page if I have an acknowledged contribution. The icon could ideally be place to the right of the username as with the paid member icon.

This suggestion is probably out of vanity more than anything but it seems like it would be nice as it shows you have contributed to LiveJournal. It would link to your individual contributions (

An ordered list of benefits

  • Users receive acknowedgement on their user info page that they've made a contribution.
  • More people are aware that user has made a contribution rather than having to search through /site/contributors.bml.
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • There's no real practical purpose for it other than it makes users feel good.
  • Some contributors may not want the icon on their page.
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • Simple editing of the code in CVS is all that would be needed to make this live. Of course, if this suggestion is implemented, it should take a lower prority in development than other major projects.
  • Tags: contributors, profile/userinfo, ~ submitted - needs retagging
    • Post a new comment
