I think it would be cool if you could choose which of the special badges your house has earned appears on your profile at any time.
IE: Since Balance raised the most for the Trevor Project and earned a Balance Pride badge, any user in that house could choose to have that badge displayed at any time, rather than the usual green one. Since Balance also won the Game of Hats tournament a few months ago, Balance users could also choose to have that badge displayed. Or the gold HypeSquad badge they got from the Child's Play donation stuff.
I do know that for whatever reason it seems like more users are in Balance, and therefore Balance seems to place first and earn a special badge in almost every event.
To make it fair, for certain events (for instance such as the Pride Month one from last month), all houses get a special badge and users can choose to display said badge at any time, but the house that places first gets a significantly more special one.
Colored or gradient round borders, having the Hypesquad logo on the house badge filled in, a crown on the top left corner of the badge, gradient or colored backgrounds, a word off to the side of the badge to indicate what it's for, a shiny animation effect, all would be pretty cool for first place special badges.
The option would probably be accessible by going to your own profile and clicking some settings button, or by going to user settings and going to the Hypesquad section, and scrolling down (meaning Discord would have to add a Hypesquad section on mobile if there isn't one already).
Ideally, you'd also have the option to turn on an auto or default mode, which will change the badges for you. (For instance, once the special badge defaultly wears off Discord automatically updates your badge to green, unless you've set that special badge as the one displayed on your profile (but you'll of course be able to set that special badge at any time)).
I myself really love my Balance Pride badge, and I would love to be able to show it on my profile at any time. And a collection of house-specific badges would be really cool in my opinion.
