I'm not active on the badges side of the project, but I believe a Discourse-like tool is more inviting for participation that a big scary mailing list of anon people.

    Hi all,

    Tonight, Marie and I had an in-person Badges sprint today and one of the
    things we discussed was migrating the badges@lists.fp.o mailing list to
    a new Discourse category on discussion.fedoraproject.org

I’d like to wait so we can get real data from commops. They just
switched and are in a trial. Let’s see what they find out. 

The motivation is to better improve our communication, make our
discussion more visible, and prevent things from getting lost.

Before August 2018, the last activity on the Badges list was April 2017.
Only four people (Marie, Justin, Brian, Miro) have participated in
discussions on this list since April 2017. Marie did not receive the
email with Brian's reply to the badges policy discussion (we really
tried to find it after realizing it wasn't received, but couldn't figure
out what happened). Given that core team members miss emails, it is also
an issue.

If the Badges project were more exposed and a precedent was set for
communication, I would advocate for waiting. However, since we are
starting from almost nothing, if this works better for the people who
are participating *today*, then I don't think this should be a blocker.

I'd like to know others' thoughts on this too. If there are no other
replies to this thread, I feel like it confirms that the discussions
here are not visible or do not solicit participation (at the risk of
confirmation bias).
