Some of the exchanges have little quirks, for example: the badges on music exchange are musical notes...

I propose that the badges on our exchange look like little droplets of our various favorite beverages. For example: the bronze badge could look like a drop of whiskey, the gold badge; a foamy drop of beer. :)

Would it be pertinent to have a vote on this?

Badge icons are part of a site's design. All sites that are in beta, including this one, share a single design with generic badges. When we reach a higher level of activity and can graduate out of beta, a Stack Exchange designer will give us our own custom design, including this element. (It'll be the same grapheme in three different colors, not three different shapes.)

  • Do you know if the community has any input on the design when we do finally graduate? Where would one submit those requests? The main meta you linked? I wonder when BWSSE will be out of beta... My request would involve the single uniform shape of a drop of alcohol and then color would vary by badge as it already does... I suppose a glass or a bottle of colored liquid would work for the badge as well! I'm still fairly new to the SEs (just finding out about the metas, for example...) – Modern Apostles Jan 15 '17 at 16:40

    @SuperQueryLad it'll be a while; we need to have a lot more activity first. If you follow that link, you'll see that 10 questions per day is a baseline that SE considers; we're well below that. (They do have to be quality questions, though; flooding the site with low-quality questions that just get closed wouldn't help.) . As for input, what I've seen on other sites is that the designer asks for input from the community when the time comes, and then shares a draft and collects feedback. So yes, we'll have a chance to provide input, but not for a while. – Monica Cellio Jan 15 '17 at 18:02
  • I like the idea of the bottles - however we do need more questions - maybe we all need a proverbial kick. – dougal 5.0.0 Feb 27 '17 at 5:48
