Nope, mine's still green. Blue is more 'in your face' though, stands out. Not sure if it's in a good way but it does stand out.
Btw Upwrok - why is it that now when you try to visit a fellow freelancer's profile, the system automatically signs you out (or at least shows you as logged out - displaying the public profile with the link to log back in).
That looks to me like the badge they would have used for the old website (ODESK). Remember the old website´s color scheme? BLUE
I don´t know for sure as I only became Top Rated recently (mine is green), but it makes sense.
I don´t think it means anything, just a mistake.
Just another mistake in a LOOOONG list of mistakes
That was probably a cached page from their CloudFlare CDN service. See the article to learn more about CDN https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Content_delivery_network I saw the blue version once on my profile page on Thursday, July 9, 2015 (UTC-05:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada). When I went back to the page later it was the green version.
This morning I found my badge blue. Then within an hour or so it back to the green!
I guess, upwork has been thinking to treat the outstanding top rated as blue, specially who are featured on their category page

Before get my badge blue, I received this email and when I fixed the issues as they mentioned, I found my badge blue. I guess we who's profiles are featured would get back this blue badge after upwork's experiment
Mahmud, congrats on your great profile. I haven't received any email of that kind yet, but that may be the case. We will see what happens next!
