Wear it Proud - Hornet Creates Badges for Community Contributors

A few weeks ago, we invited Hornet members to take part in Hornet Community. Today, users will get the opportunity to share their Hornet community contributions on their profile pages — with Hornet badges. These badges are a way for you to display that you’re a community member such as a moderator, translator or city ambassador.

Hornet Community offers multiple opportunities for all global users to directly impact Hornet and its millions of users. These users help shape the direction of Hornet and contribute across various aspects of the app. These different areas include but aren’t limited to:

  • City Ambassador Program - users wishing to provide the best tips and gay-focused information, including gay-friendly restaurants, entertainment and nightlife, about their respective city will be able to help guide platform-wide content revolving around those regions

  • Community Stories Program - writers that wish to share their own content for Hornet members now have the opportunity to draft their own contributions for Hornet’s editorial section

  • Beta Tester Program - users interested in testing out new features will get to provide their feedback before products become widely available on the app, helping shape the user experience for all members

  • Moderator Program - users who wish to help keep Hornet a safe space without fake or abusive profiles will be able to monitor and report suspicious or inappropriate behavior

  • Translator Program - multilingual users who are passionate about assisting the editorial team in converting articles, text, or content provided by users in other languages will be able to translate content that interests them

So you’re interested in participating. Now what?

If you see someone with a badge on their profiles and you’re interested in making meaningful impact by becoming a contributor, you can click through and sign up on the community program page.

More program opportunities and Hornet features will become available in the near future. Hornet users wishing to take part in Community, get engaged and contribute here: hornetapp.com/community.
