Currently, http://stackoverflow.com/badges shows the possible badges, number of total recipients, and brief descriptions. However, I have a few suggestions (mostly minor changes) that could make it a bit nicer.

  • There is no way to see (on that page) which badges I've earned multiple times — they all appear with a green checkmark. It would be nice to show something like "x 4" like in the badges section of the user profile page. For example:

enter image description here

  • There is no way to see which badges can be awarded multiple times — you have to click on a specific badge to see yea or nay. It would be nice to have a small, simple icon next to badges that can be earned multiple times, similar to the checkmark showing which badges I've earned.
  • The layout would be nicer if the number of recipients for each badge were in a separate column — since the badge images are different sizes, the overlap and ragged right alignment makes the numbers harder to read.
  • An alternative view that groups badges by "achievement level" (gold/silver/bronze) would be nice, as would a view that groups progressive degrees of the same accomplishment. (e.g. Nice Answer → Good Answer → Great Answer OR Popular Question → Notable Question → Famous Question)

Regarding the look of the badges site. I think it would be much nicer if they would group the badges by type (gold, silver, bronze) and show visually what badge can or cant be awarded multiple times.

Umm, I did mention that. "It would be nice to show something like "x4" like in the badges section of the user profile page." Maybe everyone was rushing through reading so they could answer first. :-) –  Quinn Taylor Jul 2 '09 at 21:49
    
Since it's the same sentence it reads like you are suggesting it to be in the badges section. Adding an is would make it clearer "like "4x" like is in the badges section" –  Ólafur Waage Jul 2 '09 at 21:54
    
It appears in the badges section of the user profile page. I'd like the count to also appear on stackoverflow.com/badges when I'm logged it. Currently I get a checkmark next to every badge I've earned 1+ times. –  Quinn Taylor Jul 2 '09 at 21:55
    
I get your point, and i agree, i just misread it since you're not splitting the sentence up to know where the focus is. –  Ólafur Waage Jul 2 '09 at 21:57
