Can the system tag policy be stated to askers in advance?

Can our badges be some symbol that's more recognizable than just featureless hexagons?

While they are dice, if we're going to change them, we might pick different types of dice for the different badges. A triangle (four sided die), a square (six sided die) and an octagon (12 sided die) ...

Can the system tag policy be stated to askers in advance?
