Make badges more interactive

Posted 02 January 2013 - 12:48 PM

so, I was thinking, it'd be kinda cool if badges were more interactive. Maybe a tooltip and clickable link to say something about the badge. Now, I know that we have threads, such as this, that describe the badges, but I think it would be cool to, say, hover over the swampie badge, and have a tooltip that says something like "skyhawk133Swamp earned this badge for being an avid devotee of SpectateSwamp", and if you click on the DIC++ badge, it takes you to a page detailing what DIC++ is, and an option to sign up. If you click on an Author badge, maybe it takes you to their contributions page. If you hover over a forum leader's badge, it displays the forums they lead. Just some ideas.

EDIT: ideas. plural.

It is a good idea... but I think probably some other things need to be addressed first like fixing all the bugs and getting this board to be stable again. Then something like this would be cool. :)
