I think that the "badges" part could be made easier to understand if badges are not shown in random order by organized by topic.

As an example, this is how the list of badges on my profile looks like :

● Great Question   × 1 ● Famous Question   × 1 ● Good Question   × 1
● Nice Answer   × 1 ● Teacher   × 1 ● Scholar   × 1
● Nice Question   × 1 ● Student   × 1 ● Supporter   × 1
● Popular Question   × 1 ● Notable Question   × 1

We can see that badges related to number of votes of a question (Nice/Good/Great Question) are spread everywhere.

And this is how I propose to show them : one topic by line, from bronze on left to gold on right:

● Nice Question       ● Good Question         ● Great Question   
● Popular Question   ● Notable Question      ● Famous Question
● Nice Answer   
● Teacher   
● Scholar   
● Student   
● Supporter

It would allow to spot more easily the profile of someone. Maybe some color or bold could also be added to highlight the number of each badges (or at least the most earned ones), for big contributors with a lot of each badge.

dude... badges are not that important anyway... plus askbot is open source, you can do this task in the upstream

@AL13N : Sure it is not important, but as it is shown, it would be better if easy to understand, and it gives a rough idea of someone's profiles (only asking good questions, or recognized for good answers too). Thanks for the pointer that askbot is a generic tool, I didn't know.
