We have done a bunch of work following your feedback - just look at all those tags on the different answers here!

The top suggestion was to do something about the badge visualization - we have listened and completely redesigned that piece - check out the new and improved badge visualization, on the profile page.

In the next few weeks we will preview further profile changes here on MSE - mostly to the activity page and following feedback and rework on those, the new profile page will go live to the rest of the network (6-8 weeks, give or take).

You may recall this thing - our profile page makeover prototype, the reloaded user page. We posted a prototype 6 months ago and got a lot of feedback. Since then, generations of dinosaurs were born, fell in love, had families and were eventually killed by a comet. Or climate change, or maybe texting and driving or some nonsense like that.

We picked up work again after a couple months of avoiding it (one or two of you noticed...) and started cleaning up some of the rough edges. We are looking to get this right and the change isn't urgent, so we are taking our time on it. We want to have something that is clearly better than the current page.

What is all this about again?

The user profile page was trying to address two fairly different use cases:

  • What is most valuable and useful when you want to see what someone else is all about.
  • What you should see when looking at your own profile.

Because it was trying to solve both problems in one place, it was decent at both, but not great at either, and it probably was overall more optimized for the "looking at my own profile" use case.

So, here's what's happening

If you go to your profile on MSE right now, you'll see it now has two tabs in the top left:

enter image description here

The "Profile" page is your new public profile. It's what everyone will see by default when they click your picture at the bottom of a post or find you in the users list. It should communicate what you know and what you've done.

The "Activity" page is intended to be your own personal dashboard, stuff that isn't necessarily of interest to others but that you want to see when visiting your own profile. Right now it's just the old profile page, but we'll be tackling that next and asking for feedback here on how to make it more useful.

See for example the Activity and Profile pages of BalusC - the former shows you his overall activity on the site, the latter showcases him.

Some of the things we changed based on your feedback:

User info section:

old user info

new user info

We also added a new "people helped" counter based on the views your questions and answers have gotten. This is essentially a sum of views of your questions, and answers that fall within the following criteria: accepted, have a score of 5 or more, have more than 20% of total score of all answers on a question or are within the top 3 answers by score. No deleted posts are counted.


old tags

new tags

And some other tweaks and visual updates we can't quite remember - you can see the old version here.

Unfortunately the very popular request to make the badges interactive didn't quite make it in -- but we may still come back to this later.


We are looking for your feedback before this goes out to the rest of the network - what's broken? What's missing from the new page? What needs a bit of polish?

    Is there a plan to allow users to see the activity page by default even for other users? This is something I'd really prefer on sites where I'm a moderator. – Mad Scientist Nov 27 '14 at 16:04

    I really don't see the point of this. With the sole exception of the "Top network posts" box and the silly "X people helped" number, there is no information on the "profile" page that isn't already on the "activity" page. The profile page is just a version of the activity page that takes more space to display less info. If you justify the existence of the profile page by redesigning (removing information from) the activity page, then you have two semi-unuseful pages instead of one useful page. If you don't remove information from the activity page, then the profile page is simply superfluous. – Boann Dec 3 '14 at 14:58

    This is very messy and it looks as if SE is trying to nullify the division of the network into distinct sites and communities and throw everything into a big messy melting pot instead. It reminds me of Quora, and the new profile is equally unuseful to the ones on Quora because you have a hard time to retrieve your own stuff. – Dilaton Dec 5 '14 at 22:53

Can you make a magenta green sprite for the answers / questions when they are accepted / have an accepted answer so they stand out?

I also really liked that the word "reputation" was grayed out in the Profile tab under my avatar, where it would appear white black like the reputation count. The new change also colors the entire box, which makes it prettier. Thanks!

There is no notice in the "Profile" tab if a user is suspended, it just looks like he is 1-rep user.

Will the Activity super-tab (i.e. the old profile view, sibiling of the “Profile” super-tab which is the new profile view) be retained on other people's profiles in the long term? I think it shouldn't: most of the information is redundant. We already have tabs with subtabs on a user profile, adding supertabs is too much complexity for too little gain.

However, all the information that's present on the old profile would need to be accessible from the new profile. Not everything needs to be directly on the landing page, it would be enough for the landing page to include links to:

  • the bounties tab
  • the activity tab (the one with optional filtering on posts, suggestions, reviews, etc.) (I use this one a lot)
  • vote statistics — I do want to know this about people, but it doesn't need to be on the landing page, it can be a click away (a new statistics tab?)
  • 3
    The tab will be retained, but will get redesigned. Much (all) of the redundancy will be gone. The idea is to progress slowly with our complete rework of all pages, to ensure nothing is left behind. – Oded Nov 27 '14 at 20:18

    @MonicaCellio Were you refering to the new “Activity” super-tab or the existing “activity” tab?

  • I meant what's being called the "activity" page here, which is the fuller, useful profile that we're all used to. I wouldn't want to lose the "activity" tab either. Sorry for the confusion. (Err, maybe they should rename one of those...) – Monica Cellio Nov 27 '14 at 22:09
  • 1
    @MonicaCellio What do you miss on the new page? There's nothing else that I'd want to have there directly, even as a mod; but I do want all the extra data (full activity tab, vote count, etc.) to be reached in a single click. – Gilles 'SO- stop being evil' Nov 27 '14 at 22:11
  • @MonicaCellio Hmmm, I think we're still talking at cross-purposes. If you're talking about the existing “activity” tab with the chronological view of nearly everything, then we're in full agreement that it should be retained, and I haven't seen any plan to remove it. But you now seem to be saying you want to keep the top-level “Activity” option, but I don't understand why. – Gilles 'SO- stop being evil' Nov 27 '14 at 22:20
  • 1
    The "activity" tab on the current profile is essential. The current profile view, which is behind a new "Activity" supertab, contains information that I want to be readily available that is not present on the newly-designed profile. So I want that supertab to be there. Voting activity is one example. – Monica Cellio Nov 27 '14 at 22:21
  • 1
    The new profile is designed to advertise a user to other users. It loads up the view with stuff from other sites (I probably don't care as a mod on my site) and completely removes access to votes, bounties, activity, and responses. It makes tags and badges harder to see. Look again -- none of the tabs we're used to are present on the new profile, most especially "activity". – Monica Cellio Nov 27 '14 at 22:24
  • @MonicaCellio Uh? The recent activity list isn't on the main page of the old profile either, it's one click away. Do you really need active bounties on the landing page as opposed to behind one click? Responses don't show up on other people's profiles. – Gilles 'SO- stop being evil' Nov 27 '14 at 22:33
  • It's one click away on the current profile. It's not reachable at all from the new one. And responses do show in other people's profiles for moderators. This all started with me saying "don't make my job as moderator harder"; read all of this in that frame. (And I do want to casually notice if a suspicious user has been getting lots of bounties. I might never think to click through and look; having it on the main page draws my attention to it.) – Monica Cellio Nov 27 '14 at 22:35
  • @MonicaCellio It's not reachable, which is why I'm requesting for it to be reachable in one click. I still can't figure out if we're agreeing or disagreeing, I think I'll just drop the matter. Regarding bounties, offered bounties are already behind a click now, so that would be a separate feature request. – Gilles 'SO- stop being evil' Nov 27 '14 at 22:38
  • And I'm saying that even if activity were linked on the new page, the new page is harder to use and designed for a different purpose, so keeping the "Activity" version is important. I don't think I can persuade you so I'll stop trying. – Monica Cellio Nov 27 '14 at 22:48
  • Another thing from the current profile/new activity page that as a mod I use frequently: the flags history. Just the numbers (helpful/declined) tells me something, and clicking through tells me more. – Monica Cellio Nov 28 '14 at 3:30

On the "Activity" page, you could hover over a tag and be told the number of questions, the number of answers, and the total score of each of those. Not so on the new "Profile" page.

: show the number of posts per type and total score for questions/answers when hovering over a tag count on the "Profile" page.


- there is a link there, if there are more accounts than already visible.

On the old page ("Activity"), there was a list of a user's top accounts, and the word "Accounts" was a link to the accounts page of their network profile.

I noticed that on the new page ("Profile") the word was changed to "Communities," which is just fine IMO....but the word no longer links to a user's network profile.

This was useful to me if I saw a user, and thought I'd seen them before on another site in the network -- I could open their page and visually scan (or search, if there's too many accounts) for sites that I'm active on.
Since there's now no link on the default (Profile) page on MSE, if I want to do that, I have to switch to the other (Activity) page, which is way to much work!!! :(

All kidding aside; it's really no big deal, but I think this would be a nice change to implement. ( can you call it a change when it's a request for things to remain the same? )

    Yeah, in general they're de-linking the section headers in favor of those "more..." links over on the right, so this is consistent with that. I would much rather have the headers be links; I use those all the time because they're easier targets to hit; at smaller window sizes the "more" links in the right column are out of view and I have to scroll horizontally. But even without that, the header is bigger and closer to the center of the page, so less mouse action and more-accurate clicking. – Monica Cellio Nov 30 '14 at 22:15
  • @Monica It won't be implemented :( – nicael Nov 30 '14 at 22:16

WTF is that grayish background doing on the avatar?

enter image description here

I slightly darkened the color, so you can see it better. I guess it falls under "poetic license."

Here's the CSS rule that should be banished forever, or at least made to work correctly:

background: linear-gradient(to bottom, #f6f6f6 1%, #f6f6f6 45%, #fff 45%, #fff 100%);

That means a solid-color "gradient" from the top to 45% down in an annoying shade of grey, and the rest white. It was intended to be a gradient, but then a mysterious #f6f6f6 45%, #fff 45%, appeared in the middle. Here's what you're looking for:

background: linear-gradient(to bottom, #f6f6f6 1%, #fff 100%);

But why do you even need a background gradient/color The fact is that no avatar will blend in with that exact grey, whereas many avatars have a white background and will blend in nicely. So here's a much better CSS rule:

  • I don't really follow. The background was designed to be part grey part white. It was not designed as a continual gradient - which appear to be what you think it should be. Why should it be a gradient filling the container? Why does that make (more) sense? – Oded Dec 10 '14 at 21:15

Personally I don't think that "Activity" is a good name for old part of user profile. Now we have two activity tabs by the way - one for old part of profile and another for all activity - posts, comments, badges received, etc. It could be confusing.

I think that the old name - "Dashboard" would be better. So please change the name of this tab, don't use "Activity".


There's no way to see how much rep you have on other sites from the profile page.

On the Activity view, it shows me i have exactly 10,149 rep on SO; but the Profile view just shows 10.1k. (Same with other sites above 1k - it rounds.)

Hovering over it doesn't even give me the number! It just says the site name:

enter image description here

However, hovering over the badge icon does give me this extremely helpful tooltip:

enter image description here


Right now it looks like there might be a plan to allow for excluding sites from both the top network posts list, and communities list. However, I would hate for those to be the same list. I have 1 singular problem with my top post list:

My issue with the top post list is only 1 question: Do Costume Affect Breast Physics

It was a question that got quite a bit of attention (and was controversial) and so when I answered it, it got a lot of up votes. Frankly speaking, it isn't even a great answer. But it rose to the top pretty quickly and it now sits right on my profile.

Now I have no problem with the question at the end of the day (I did answer it, after all) but I do have a problem with it showing up on every one of my profiles across the network. My username here is part of my brand and I'd rather not have my brand be well known for it's "breast physics" expertise. Because when I am talking to a client or employer, they may not take well to that question.

On the other hand, I am a gamer, and my reputation on Arqade is the highest of any other community. Gaming is part of my identity and I have no problem with the other questions appearing there. And I actively want my Arqade reputation displayed on my communities list. It shows I know how to answer questions, and that I am knowledgeable and contribute to a community. The fact that it isn't Stack Overflow doesn't matter, it still builds my brand reputation to have that displayed.

So please, please, please let me just exclude a single question from my top posts list. And if that isn't going to be an option, then at least let me have a separate exclusion list for top posts and communities so that I can show off the good things I have done on that site.

Eeek! The "Activity" tab only works when you're signed into the SE site. Repoed in Chrome and Firefox.

It works perfectly when signed in, but it won't change off the "Profile" tab when you're not signed in.

  • Reproduced (Firefox, private window). That's bad; I look at profiles on sites where I don't have accounts, or don't want to sign in, fairly often, and it's the "activity" view I'm looking for. (Example: looking at other activity from a user who's come to mod attention on sites I moderate.) – Monica Cellio Dec 1 '14 at 4:05

- this was a bug. You will note that the tt param is now gone.

Feature-request: links like https://meta.stackexchange.com/users/{id}/name?tab=... should be redirected to https://meta.stackexchange.com/users/{id}/name?tab=...&tt=activity, because they became invalid. Not only in posts, but also in mobile web user page. It is now impossible to get a full list of answers, questions, tags, bounties, impossible to view reputation in mobile, unless it is your profile. You will be thrown to full-site "Profile" tab. The only way would be to click "full site" in the bottom.


Tab "Profile" doesn't exist in mobile sites, maybe always use tab "Activity" in mobile view? Or any plans to implement "Profile" tab for mobile?

  • We are first focusing on getting the redesign out for desktop - once we are happy with these we will start looking at the mobile side. – Oded Dec 2 '14 at 16:52

For some reason the "View all badges →" link in the Profile tab is broken when you view other user profile, e.g. https://meta.stackexchange.com/users/144180/oli?tab=badges&tt=dashboard

It's just showing the tab as-is, while when clicked in my own profile, it shows the regular badges tab of the good old profile page.


Why there is a line over the menus?

enter image description here


I think it is awesome! I like that it is already live on MSE and can't wait for it to hit primetime (SO).

It is very polished, contains a very small amount of nuance (people "helped"), and anything buggy or lacking going forward can likely be modified or brought up through feature-request, bug, or support posts.

If I had to make some suggestions though, here are some thoughts...

enter image description here

  • Green: These should also be links to the total tags, or total posts (especially since the total number is included in the text already). - we won't add links here, as we already link to the relevant pages. Adding links will also alter the design, or if not, make non-obvious sections be linkable - we don't want either.
  • Red: This text and section is inconsistent with the others. It shows the total count like they do, but it should probably be Total Badges. - the big difference here is that usually, we don't show a visualization of all tags or posts, but for badges, we do. If (when?) that changes, we will revisit the title.
  • Blue: This area needs to be expanded. It should really be the entire section here, without the text notable, and with not only more badges but the link beneath to the post like the last one gets., though we completely overhauled this section.
  • Purple: Remove this please (see above)

Here is a suggested change, with an area where more badges could be placed.

enter image description here

  • About links: I noted about them in my answer which was declined and deleted by Oded... – nicael Nov 28 '14 at 21:28
  • 3
    re: "every element should fulfill only one purpose and that purpose should be visually clear" While this is good to do with things like buttons, links for titles are very different. Almost everything that is a title is a link online. Being consistent should be the design goal, and not following convention by incorporating behaviors from coding paradigms only harms user experience. Some examples already in production include the exchange logos, the question title, the user badge in posts, every heading in the classic profile, and every link which opens a modal. – Travis J Nov 28 '14 at 23:53
  • @nicael - Sorry to hear that, but I do think your point was valid. I did not see your answer before posting this suggestion, but do note that this request is really focused on making sure the entire section is consistent and also provides a change to the type of content arrangement in the badge area. – Travis J Nov 28 '14 at 23:55
  • @Oded - I like how you are modifying the proposals with status tags :) I think it makes the process more transparent. – Travis J Dec 4 '14 at 19:33

  • No problem ;) - the other bullets are WIP... – Oded Dec 22 '14 at 18:45

- the spacing is consistent with other tabs in the site.

The space between the text and the underline hover decoration, seems awkwardly large. Can it be reduced?

  • This is the same spacing that exists for the other tabs in other pages. Reducing it just here would be inconsistent with the other pages. – Oded Dec 1 '14 at 10:01
  • @Oded: Ok.. Not much of a problem anyway. Thanks. – Abhitalks Dec 2 '14 at 8:16

- current site is excluded from the list.

MSE seems to be excluded from the Top Network Posts list. (also)

I'm not sure whether this is an exception specific to MSE, or if it will always apply to the current site once the design is pushed network-wide.

Clarification on this would be nice.

    Looks like when I excluded sites in private beta, live sites got excluded by mistake as well. Fixing. – Oded Dec 5 '14 at 11:07
  • @Oded My network profile is borked in the same way: stackexchange.com/users/2752900/bjb568?tab=top – bjb568 Mar 15 '15 at 22:11
  • @bjb568 No, that looks good. It includes the one from UX (graduated), and doesn't include ones from the site we're on (MSE). – Scimonster Mar 16 '15 at 4:41
  • @Scimonster It's missing Stack Overflow. – bjb568 Mar 16 '15 at 14:24

There is need for additional link to badges. Just link "Badges (x)". Same with top network posts and communities.

    I'm for clear UI and that means that every element should fulfill only one purpose and that purpose should be visually clear. Hence, think that the explicit links are good and necessary. – Raphael Nov 28 '14 at 14:37

Despite the fact winter bash will soon be over (wipes tears), could this still count as a bug?

Badge icons under the avatar are located above the hatz:

found in @Inf's profile, tested by me with different hatz

  • If anything, this should be a winterbash bug, given that once winterbash is over... the bug disappears. – Oded Jan 4 '15 at 16:56

    @Oded that's a bug again. – nicael Dec 18 '15 at 17:29

The text in "top network posts" section of a user who doesn't have them is somewhat strange:

(example user)

Edit: Oh, now I got the joke, misread it at first :D But this joke doesn't work well when the user has no posts at all.

  • I don't get the downvotes. Please explain. – nicael Mar 14 '15 at 19:25
  • I guess it is a boiler-plate text that could have said No posts yet. Instead it tries to be funny. – rene Mar 14 '15 at 19:39
  • @rene ah, I got it :D – nicael Mar 14 '15 at 19:40
  • @nicael I did not downvote but I would guess the reason is "somewhat strange" is subjective. I actually like that text. Why did you feel it was strange and what do you think it should say? – Jason C Mar 14 '15 at 19:40
  • @Jason I got the joke, did misread it a bit at first :D – nicael Mar 14 '15 at 19:40
  • Well, you know, if the joke is easy to misread or misunderstand then your "somewhat strange" claim probably holds some ground! – Jason C Mar 14 '15 at 19:42

    The choice of text is somewhat less than professional. Who are those "we"? Why don't they identify themselves, in particular when making a statement bordering on veiled insult (gee, look how narrow-minded this guy is)? – user259867 Mar 14 '15 at 19:44
  • Try to remove it from the DOM. Then it really looks weird. So that is the reason for a boiler-plate text. We can now argue about the exact wording – rene Mar 14 '15 at 19:45

Why tag badges are not included in "notable badges" section? I have two notable tag badges (both were awarded only 10 times). But "Informed" (awarded 15 times) is still shown as most notable.

  • Because tag badges got their own place maybe? (under Top Tags) – Shadow Wizard is Vaccinating Dec 2 '14 at 21:11
  • They are not excluded. But the criteria is not just how many were awarded, but also the class of the badge (gold > silver > bronze). – Oded Dec 22 '14 at 13:59
