After a lot of requests from the Moodle community members in the Moodle forums like : Premium Plugins and themes, finally Moodle HQ has created the Moodle Plugins developer group on Moodle.org which will display the plugin developers badge on their profile.
The plugins developer badge will be awarded to those developers who share their code in the Moodle plugins directory. As of now there are 248 members of the Plugins developer group from different countries.
You can also join the Moodle Developers group by sharing your code with the Moodle community.
Apart from the Moodle plugins developer group, the badge icon for other groups like: Core developers, Testers, Particularly Helpful Moodlers, Translators, Documentation Writers, Moodle HQ are also replaced with new and sleek badge icons.
You can also earn badges from Moodle.org by contributing to the Moodle community in all possible ways like: Writing the documentation, translating documents into other language, helping fellow moodlers, helping in testing of new versions etc.
