I would like to get community opinion on the possibility of "self-assigned badges"1 that would serve to distinguish for example
- native vs. non-native English speakers
- American vs. British vs. other dialects
Currently, it is possible to write this and other information on the profile page, however this could be available immediately along with the badges and user's reputation on each question directly accessible (as tip text or icons).
Could you please start your replies with short answers to following questions:
1. Would you like to see such or similar feature implemented?
2. If yes, what would you use it for (what do you think it would be effective and useful for)?
1 The actual mechanism does not need to be determined before the assessment of benefits.
