Help Needed! Ask Ubuntu Accomplishment Documentation

I have something rather cool to show you:

This is a screenshot of Ubuntu Accomplishments with support for Ask Ubuntu badges. This means that when you get an Ask Ubuntu badge, you will see a notification bubble appear on your desktop, and you can see all of your Ask Ubuntu badges with the rest of your trophies.

Currently all the Ask Ubuntu badges are working with Ubuntu Accomplishments, and all have working integration tests.

One of the nice features of Ubuntu Accomplishments is that you can browse documentation for the different Opportunities that you have not yet accomplished. This provides a neat way of learning how to accomplish new things.

As an example, I don’t have the Strunk and White Ask Ubuntu trophy yet. When I click on it I see:

While we have all the Ask Ubuntu accomplishments working and all the tests written, we still need help to get the documentation written for all the badges. This is where we need your help.

How To Help

Helping is simple!

Head over to this page for instructions of how to get started. You will basically grab the accomplishments, pick one from the list that has not had documentation written yet, submit the docs, and then tick it off the list.

We really want to get the Ask Ubuntu accomplishments into the 0.2 Ubuntu Accomplishments release next week, so if you folks can help, that would be awesome!

    I stopped by to acknowledge that I caught the Strunk & White reference and enjoyed it. :)

  • Paulius Šukys

    This is really cool! I see this project going further to being universal throughout Stackoverflow! Good luck on further developments :)

    You’ve mentioned before that you prefer accomplishments to focus on doing something new, not clocking up stats. But I think a lot of the Ask Ubuntu badges are number-based: the one you show is awarded for editing 80 posts. Any thoughts on whether/how the pool of available accomplishments should be controlled?

     You make a good point, and many of the Ask Ubuntu badges are the kind of accomplishments that we would not include in Ubuntu Accomplishments, but we are adding them for completeness so people can see their Ask Ubuntu accomplishments.

    For dedicated Ubuntu Accomplishments opportunities, they will use the criteria I have discussed before and outlined at

    Thanks for the comment.

    I could use some editing help from people with great writing skills on AU. cough :)
