FYI, there have been a few changes to the CII Best Practices badge site:
1. We now have new “sharing” links at the bottom of the front page <https://bestpractices.coreinfrastructure.org/> for Twitter, Reddit, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, and Email. Unlike “like” buttons, these are NOT tracking devices – they do nothing unless you click on them. Credits to “Responsible Social Share Links” by Jonathan Suh for explaining how to do this in a privacy-respecting way (<https://jonsuh.com/blog/social-share-links/#use-share-urls>).
2. Also on the front page, we have a list of logos for some of the projects who have earned a badge. Hopefully that will convince some people that “projects I know got a badge, I want to join the party!”.
PLEASE tell others about the CII Best Practices badge – and by all means, use the new “sharing” links to help you do that. We are generally growing, both in terms of the number of participating projects and the number of passing projects, but I’d love to see faster growth. The more FLOSS projects that get a badge, the better the results.
