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...) Jan 15, 2017 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. Jan 15, 2017 at 18:02
  • I like the idea of the bottles - however we do need more questions - maybe we all need a proverbial kick. Feb 27, 2017 at 5:48

Proposal for badges on alcohol exchange?

Do not know how possible this is, but it is quite ingenious.

What I would like to see, is the following, but others may have another idea:

  • Beer mug for bronze badges
  • Wine glass for silver badges
  • Shot glasses for gold badges

It may just make the site a little more interesting for others.

The Music: Practice & Theory Stack Exchange as already mentioned has three different badge symbols for it’s badges: Gold, Silver and Bronze.
