Just a suggestion, can you create a new usergroup like you did for moderators? I'd like to see a contributor flag for people like Sy and Pat who contribute to the community. The flag would simply highlight their name blue or something like we do the mods. This way when scrolling through a post their contributions stand out more.
I think it would help readers and show appreciation to the peeps who contribute content for the community or are part of the community and write content on other platforms.
