So, I have seen each stack exchange sites have their own stylized badge style. For example CrossValidated has a leaf like symbol, Biology has a genetic symbol. It definitely helps to add uniqueness to the site. Someone pointed out few benefits of having customized badges on Stackoverflow. I cannot find the link now. So should we have a new badge (something like a robot or a brain)?
This site is currently in beta. Beta sites do not normally have custom design elements.
Furthermore, Stack Exchange are ch-ch-ch-changing their approach to site design, and as a part of that, badges will be standardized: one badge design to rule them all.
Standardized items will include:
- Newsletter ads
