#5593 new defect

Contributor badges don't make your profile "public"

Background: #4754, #4632, #4714, #4696.

As part of the changes in [dotorg15369], the Bio section on WP.org profiles is not displayed publicly when either of these conditions is true:

  • User is banned
  • User has no activity

The problem is that not all activity is currently reflected as such in profiles: submitting patches, GitHub PRs, translations will eventually get you a contributor badge, but not an activity entry. See #1664 or #5592 for example.

So a user can have a Core Contributor or Translator Contributor badge, but their Bio section is still not displayed publicly until they have at least one activity entry.

This seems wrong, as it implies that some activities are more "real" than others. Contributors should not be forced to a particular activity just for their profile to be public.
