I love that badges are very prominent on user card when it pops up. It would be nice if badges were that prominent on the user profile page, right under the profile background, perhaps underneath/in the same area as the Joined/Last Post/Seen information. IMHO badges are too hidden on a user profile, being on a separate page, from a button underneath all the buttons on the left for replies/responses, etc.
I stopped worrying about badges in our forums when only 3 would be shown by default, and I had no way to control which were the most important. It’d be nice to see them displayed or prioritized more prominently.
