    initial v1  
    77But if we see the scenario through, attendees are just basically coming to a ready-made event and are paying for it (small amount, but nevertheless). I think they are not contributing to the WordPress project itself in a way, they are just attending to WordPress event. If we start to add badges for WordCamps attendees on these grounds, WordPress meetup attendees should also get a badge.

    9 What comes to volunteers, I again greatly respect each and one of them. WordCamps wouldn't function without them. At least we couldn't have so cheap ticket prices without amazing volunteers contributing their own time. Usually, volunteers are giving a one to two, sometimes three days, their time for the event.  In contrast to other community badges (speaker, organizer, deputy, mentor), that is considerably less time given to the WordPress project - as valuable as it is. But thinking in another way, you can also get a core or polyglots badge with a relatively small amount of work.

    1111Some volunteers also contribute more their time than others, so who is going to draw the line what is enough for earning a badge and where the line will be drawn? For example, is it enough volunteering if you design a custom Wapuu for WordCamp, compared to handling cloakroom the whole event day? Organizers might have different opinions on this, which directly affects who will get the badge and who not.
