Hi Eric,

We are definitely in the middle of discussion the best ways to approach
this. Our next step is to read & comment on Tim Cook’s blog post:
https://medium.com/@timothyfcook/the-value-of-a-badge-641b1078b770

And continue the conversation via email. Our next working group meeting is
2/16 (1:30pm ET) and surely this will be part of the agenda.

Also note as part of the 1.1 OB spec, we’ve introduced the concept of
extensions which allows issuers to include additional data. We may use this
approach to explore the best way to distinguish between creators and
issuers possibly similar to how you’ve described.

Thanks,

Kerri

Hi Folks,

At Mozfest I had a chat with Carla and Sunny about the need to add
information about the badge creator in the OBI. We have several OBF
customers, which are planning to share badges to be issued by other
organizations and they would like that the URL of the badge creator could
be displayed to earners. I wrote yesterday to Sunny about that and she told
me, that this question have been discussed during the community call! Great!

My humble proposal about this topic, would be to add to the BadgeClass the
Creator -property and URL as a expected type pointing to a
CreatorOrganization class, that would contain the same filed types than the
IssuerOrganization.

Nate mentionned in etherpad a list of authorized issuers. Why not, but I am
not sure that it is necessary, I think that it's the job of badge issuing
platforms to take care of the rights associated to the badge sharing
process and we could keep this kind of information out of OBI to keep it as
simple as possible. Anyway setting a list of authorized issuers can be
tricky, because for some reasons an issuer's name and information can
change later.

Any comments or suggestions?

I think that it would be important to agree soon about some solution,
because a quiclkly raising number of issuers is putting some pressure on
that and we are already working in the badge sharing feature of OBF.

Cheers,

Eric
