I'm talking about the Badges page for each site. There you can see six voting badges:

  • Supporter
  • Critic
  • Suffrage
  • Vox Populi
  • Civic Duty
  • Electorate


Every voting badge resides in a separate group and these groups sometimes lie very far from each other:

Move to three groups: single votes, multiple daily votes, multiple votes:

grouped badges

Also something similar can be applied to bounty badges:

  • Altruist
  • Benefactor
  • Investor
  • Promoter

    You forgot to mention Electorate and Civic Duty which are also voting badges. I would say either put all six badges (Supporter, Critic, Suffrage, Vox Populi, Civic Duty, Electorate) in the same group or make three groups right next to each other with Supporter and Critic in one, Suffrage and Vox Populi in the second one and Civic Duty and Electorate in the third one.

    The badges are clearly deliberately ordered in alphabetical order May 12, 2018 at 19:48
  • @DavidPostill OK, moving voting badges to single or two groups can be achieved without breaking alphabetical order. May 12, 2018 at 19:52
  • If you are going to propose something as radical as this you should also include Civic Duty, Constituent, Electorate, and Sportsmanship, which are also voting badges. Please try to be consistent ... and you still haven't explained why your idea is so wonderful ... May 12, 2018 at 20:01
  • @DavidPostill Constituent is election voting, not post voting, it shouldn't be grouped with any of mentioned here at all. Sportsmanship has noting common with any other also except voting. It shouldn't be grouped either. About Electorate and Civic Duty: they can be grouped to single group as DonaldDuck suggested in his comment. I also like idea of grouping bounty badges as in ZaniXu's answer. Why? Similar badges should belong to the same group. That's all. May 12, 2018 at 20:12
  • Your question clearly says "There you can see four voting badges". There are 8. Please update your question and clarify exactly what you mean by voting. By the way I still think it's a bad idea regardless. May 12, 2018 at 20:15
  • @DonaldDuck Rewritten question to reflect your idea. May 12, 2018 at 21:00

1 Answer 1


I think this is a great idea, to make things less confusing and sort things together. They should also put all the bounty badges together.
