I have just noticed the Badges counter which is somewhat confusing;

enter image description here

Yes I have taken this snap from Jon Skeet's profile. I am sure you will be surprised to see this. He has a total of 7387 badges but the counter is showing only 552 badges.

Now, I know what this counter is indicating.

552 Badges: It indicates the type of badges he has earned. So it doesn't matter if he has gotten a particular badge multiple times.

My Suggestion:

There should be a title which indicates this, like one of the following:

  • Total 7387 badges
  • 552 unique badge
  • Total 7387 badges, 552 unique badges
  • 1
    Crikey, he's looking a bit skint for badges on SF, he needs more effort there... – slugster Mar 19 '13 at 12:26

    And we might need to create a platinum Great Answer badge specially for him, to be awarded when he hits 100 gold GA badges. – slugster Mar 19 '13 at 12:28

    It's always confusing for new users. Nice suggestion. – Tony Stark Mar 19 '13 at 13:25
  • @Jehof Let's hope you will not be confused once it's defined as #StatusCompleted – Paresh Mayani Mar 20 '13 at 13:51
  • @PareshMayani now i know that its not the total count :-) – Jehof Mar 20 '13 at 13:54
  • @Jehof Yeh its fine but let's hope it will be clear. – Paresh Mayani Mar 20 '13 at 13:56
  • I wonder there is still no update even after bounty, no moderators has tried to look into it. – Paresh Mayani May 21 '13 at 6:57
