There is a gapping white space in the middle of Drupal.org's home page. I have an idea how we could use it. (see attachment)
So everyone says Drupal is all about the community, yet the home page doesn't really represent that so much. I was speaking to Vijay (https://drupal.org/user/93488) who was mentioned as on of the people Dries thought was awesome at his keynote in Prague. I asked him how did that make him feel? He said it was very empowering and a huge honour which drove him to do more.
What if the space on the home page was used to champion community heroes, code heroes, celebrate recent camps or even spotlight successful meetups. This could easily inspire many more people to follow suit.
The Drupal Association now have a writer, there is a community spotlight section (https://drupal.org/community-spotlight), and according to Holly Ross there is a will to generate more spotlight content. To reduce the work load, a form could exist which allows people to be nominated (rather than use issue queues). For me this is not about the know rockstars, it is the future ones, the unknown unsung heroes. The rockstars of the future.
What do you think?
