Description

I have confirmed as a speaker of WordCamp Tokyo 2014 3 weeks ago.
But my profile page has no speaker badge.

Change History (22)

I see two activity items for the badge being added, so it looks like it was added, then removed, then added a second time, then removed a second time. Your Speaker post currently has your WordPress.org username, so it looks like a bug. Possibly related to #681.

I'm a speaker of 2 sessions at WCT2014. I guess that this may be related to badge disappearance.

I'm in the same position. I spoke at WordCamp Orlando 2013, and noticed a badge on my page several months ago, but then it disappeared. Most recently, I spoke at WordCamp Tampa, but still don't have the badge. Not sure where .org pulls this information from…?

I'm in the same boat as well. Spoke at WCToronto a few years ago:

What's the connection point between profile and badge and/or is there any way to help make it work from profile / user side of things?

Replying to Idealien:

The organizers of the camp control who is added from within wp-admin of the camp's site. Until the bug is fixed, the only workaround is for them to remove and then re-add your WordPress.org username from your Speaker post on the site.

I did some testing from the organizer side. The easiest remedy is removing a speaker's org username from within their speaker profile in the WordCamp's wp-admin panel, then re-adding their org username and saving.

Notes:

  • If you save only it will not add the activity. (You have to remove the username and add it again.)
  • When you add the activity, it is timestamped as a current activity even though the WordCamp is likely over.
  • If you do the remove/add/save recursively, the activity will show up in the speaker's profile twice for the same WordCamp.

I noticed the activity is only missing from my original speakers because their org username was submitted as part of their application. Speakers I added later as replacements already had the speaker activity because I manually added their org username.

I suspect the function that registers the activity is not getting run when the speaker applies (which makes sense) and it is prevented from running every time the post is updated, unless the username value changes. That means it's also not getting run when the speaker is published, because the value for the username is not changing.

To remedy this, the activity would need to be part of the publish action rather than the create action. However, speakers who get published also sometimes do not end up speaking. A better approach may be to not tie this activity feature to the profile management process at all and to instead schedule a task to grab all published speaker org usernames on the date of the WordCamp—to run the activity bot one single time with the latest schedule.

Quick note; I just noticed all the WC Seattle organizers didn't have organizer badges. The same bug and workaround apply to that post type.
