Thanks for pointing this out Andreas,

We really try to not make any stink about volunteers versus 'official' folks - we are one big HOT community.  I'll hand this over to the Community Working Group to see if they'd like to alter the user box(es).

Happy Mapping,

Russell Deffner

I just realized that if you use this template on your user page, then it 
will be in the Humanitarian OSM Team category. I don't think that should 
happen and I guess with the [[Category:{{{1}}} 
Volunteers{{!}}{{PAGENAME}}]] that also was somehow the intention, but 
that doesn't work, because many people don't enter the optional parameter.

I'm not an expert with those templates, but maybe someone could edit it 
so by default it says Category: HOT volunteer and make that a sub category.
Also for the official members it might also be better to have category 
HOT board members as Humanitarian OSM Team doesn't really stand for the 

Because right now the category isn't the usefull with all the users:
