Are you in the GitHub Arctic Code Vault?

Looks like GitHub is pushing out new contributor badges.

It looks like this.

I think this selection was taken in February 2020, but they might archive more repos later, who knows?

They might do it again later. This program already began its journey to arctic with over 21TB of repository data.

I didn't realize the importance of the badge until my friend shared a video of this. Feels pretty good knowing that my code is going to be stored for like 1000 years 😇

I thought everyone gets it, as an encouragement during the covid period... now I checked again and found it's something else, lol. No matter what, happy to get a badge! (I wonder what's in the "more" section because I won't archive that one page svelte hacker news repo....

Ha ha, thank you so much, Annie, for your comment about my post and image! I knew I'd made a boo-boo so I quickly deleted and tried again - and finally got it right! Looks like my old version still appeared a few places, but hopefully, that'll peter out soon. But thanks for speaking up!!
