I'm not sure what you're asking. The script seems to work fine for me. Is it possible that "ericbinnion" is not the user's username? When I change the variable's value to "patrikchristoffersson" it shows all of your badges. When I input an invalid username, nothing shows up (as well it shouldn't).

@J.T when i use the code on my current website im working on - it wont show up. just transparent boxes that move according to the css.

It's hard to say what your issue is. Do you have a URL to the page on which you're trying to use this code? It's possible you're not including jQuery in your project, but it's tough to say without knowing what your page source looks like.

@J.T sec, im uploading the code to my webserver as we speak so you can have a look at it!

Never mind that, i got it to work now. Time to earn more badges.

Thanks for taking the time to answer my question.
