    77My main thought here is that I consider Meetup, WordCamp & Contributor Day attendees as actively involved in the WordPress Community. We are constantly directing our meetup attendees to visit the WordPress.org as a resource, and it seems to me like acknowledging the wildly successful WordPress Meetups, WordCamps and Contributor days on the home page (somewhere, ANYWHERE for that matter) would allow many people who feel they are already "involved" in the WordPress Community to become even more involved, and hopefully end up as contributors as well.
