Thank you Walter  and everyone else's feedback!

I love your ideas and let me tell you that I have only intentions and many
ideas for Sugar's Community to work :D

The Open Badges proposal is clearly part of the Marketing Plan as we also
need to upgrade our internal relationships and Communications.

[Budget Note: Dave, Adam I think it would be ok to use General Funds? still
before any motion is formulated we can double check with SFC]

I do believe more than 1 user can be defined as an experience and therefore
I disagree with Dave that for example Social Help should be shot down.

I believe in meritocracy and I feel I was short in the list of Super Hero
Badges I would like to create and also in the amount of contributors I
would like SL to graphicly and openly recognize their achievements, but I
understand we have limited resources and therefore I planned for that case.

Regards, blessings and the best weekend to all.

Laura Victoria

PS: With the help of the light, I'll be working in the wiki page for a
draft proposal regarding the Open badges taking into consideration
everyones feedback.
