It looks like Stack Overflow has a new box for badges on the profile page:

enter image description here

However, it appears this has not been rolled out to other sites, such as Code Golf. This is quite a nice design, so when can we expect to see it on other sites too? Or will it be only for Stack Overflow for a while, like the dark theme? Unlike the dark theme, it appears this feature hasn't been added to Stack Overflow in Portuguese and Stack Overflow in Russian.

This new profile UI for badges has now been rolled out to all sites across the Stack Exchange network. We also fixed a pluralization bug while we were at it. Here's a few examples:

    Just to check, site-specific badge shapes won't revert to a plain "star in laurels" design, right?

    @Jenayah The larger "star in laurels" design is used as a spot illustration for this badge component on the profile page. The badge component in general will continue to have their site-specific badge shapes when this updated profile goes across the network. For example, here's how the design will look on scifi: i.stack.imgur.com/w2Zvq.png

  • @KylePollard Where do you want bug reports/feedback for this now it's live to the rest of the network? I assume not here so is there a general post or tag you want us to use? Aug 5, 2021 at 9:01
  • @TheLethalCarrot there's no collection post for bugs on this, so just a new post tagged with [bug], [badges], and [profile-page] would work 😁

    Is there a button in bronze badge block if a user don't have even single one badge? Aug 6, 2021 at 9:20
  • @αλεχολυτ There is, but it's unlikely to show up since the entire badge section is hidden if you don't have any badges. You would somehow need a silver or gold badge but not a bronze.

    @KylePollard seems weird for me. But anyway could you please provide a screenshot or at least title of that button in bronze badge block? I need to know it to make a translation for ruSO. Aug 6, 2021 at 15:07

    @αλεχολυτ The text for the bronze section is "You don't have a bronze badge yet. Read more about how badges work and how to earn them." if it's your profile, or "This user doesn't have any bronze badges yet." if it's not your profile. The button says "Learn more about badges" and links to /help/badges. Hope that helps!

According to a comment on MSO by staff member Piper Lawson:

the Public Platform team will get this scheduled for an upcoming sprint

So yes, you can expect the changes described in the answer to be rolled out networkwide eventually (note that the comment talks about an upcoming sprint, not the), and it won't be something for Stack Overflow only.
