What do you think about adding the earned badges summary in the user profile?
I'm aware that badges summary is pretty pervasive in several sections of the sites like Users tab, Questions and Answers.
I think that this information could be useful if someone is visiting the user profile from a comment, where badges are not reported.
Check this navigation pattern:
- reading a questions/answers
- find an hilarious comment
- click on the user link
- check who that guy/girl is* and his/her profile with badges
- can't find that information
- search user with Users tab
Personally I've stumbled into this pattern several times and from an usability standpoint, I'd like to see the badges summary in the user profile.
The same pattern can be applied to the Top Questions section where badges are not displayed.
What do you think?
*Ok I know, Jon Skeet is not a great example here
this is now completed!
