I request to change the shape of bronze badge,
the triangular shape and orange-brown shade on navbar tells me(us) that it looks like warning message ,(see below) enter image description here

please change the shape/color or even change it to look like other sites(SO),

I would like to change it to these icons enter image description here
which is in the in the profile page of each user

    $\begingroup$ One thing about this is that gold/silver/bronze badges are distinguished by shape, too - see the screenshot here (or another per-site-meta): Should badge classes be described by shape as well as colour? The design was introduced here: Design Ideas for Mathematics Site. The shape of badges wasn't discussed that much at the time. $\endgroup$ May 28 at 6:58
  • $\begingroup$ yes but i think, it can be discussed now $\endgroup$ May 28 at 7:13
  • $\begingroup$ i am talking about current site's ux problem,not that which is 10 years back $\endgroup$ May 28 at 7:51

    $\begingroup$ I changed the title because I thought it was an announcement that the site UX was changing, which I thought was quite confusing. But feel free to revert $\endgroup$ May 28 at 7:52

    $\begingroup$ I don't know what's there to be said as example,but still, "every time I open Mathematics.SE ,I feel there is 3 warning to me, it take me a while to clarify that its my badge." Think of new users... $\endgroup$ May 28 at 8:32

    $\begingroup$ You need to come up with a better reason to change the site design other than "I am misinterpreting an orange triangle as a warning (and other people are not)". :/ $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ 1) I don't agree that it looks like ⚠️ (which is usually yellow, perhaps red, not orange-brown), but maybe I am too used to Math.SE. 2) your suggested replacement is too complicated. Maybe you can suggest ⭐️ , but this would be more complicated than silver and gold as well. 3) new users don't start with any badges $\endgroup$ May 28 at 9:43

    $\begingroup$ @CalvinKhor I agree your first two points, but not the third, new users get their badge as soon as they visit this tour page $\endgroup$ May 28 at 10:01

    $\begingroup$ And @Pedro its only a opinion,maybe it's only me or maybe others too have this misinterepreting $\endgroup$ May 28 at 10:01

    $\begingroup$ Just wait until you get access to the review queues, and see that angry red dot first thing each day. P.S. The badges don't bother me. $\endgroup$ May 28 at 13:13
