I posted a question in the Experts section yesterday and noticed that I have a tag line.  I can't find this award anywhere.  Does anyone know what it is all about?

Excellent Pat.  Such award does not show up on my profile. Never did, but I think I might have won that award.

OH, I get what you were saying now...  Probably some obscure setting somewhere.

Should really open a new question and close this one...

Commented:
NAH, I believe it can be rephrased as:  How do I get my awards added to my comments and still be the same?
or
I noticed my awards are showing on my comments.  How do I control that?

I mean I'll ask it if you want me to pass points but that used to be frowned on....   ;)

The original question was answered.  I thought it might be rude to continue discussion here.

I've found there are different views for people who ask questions and for people who answer questions.  This is where John sees a difference and 'has to go looking.'  There is not a control for this as an individual, but it is a feature on the page itself.  I'll partner with the product owner for clarification.

I was able to confirm this is a feature of the page.  It is displaying the most recent award the expert has achieved last year.

LOL...  I'm pretty much called worse than "rude" on a daily basis.  It's closely related to the original question  so, it's fair game.

>>I've found there are different views for people who ask questions and for people who answer questions

um, I'm both?  Sure I answer A LOT more than I ask but still.

Sounds like an extra code fork that needs to be maintained.  I'm sure it served some purpose some day but I would rethink it.  The old Expert skin made sense for experienced members but it was still user select-able.  Why maintain several UIs based on some "magic"?

The UI should be consistent, but customizable , to remove confusion.
