In follow-up to the recent blog post, is there a way to determine how close you are to a given badge, such as Strunk & White, Archaeologist, or Sportsmanship?

Yes, there's a progress tracker on the right sidebar of the /review page:


Once you get [Strunk & White], it will switch to showing your progress towards [Copy Editor] and [Electorate].

is it only for that badge? –  warren Nov 21 '11 at 19:03
@warren I believe it's for all badges currently relevant to reviewing. As the blog post explains, it covers Strunk & White, Civic Duty, Copy Editor, and Electorate. –  Anna Lear Nov 21 '11 at 19:05
I did see that in the post for the review-related badges ... still wondering if there's a way to know how close to another badge you are (eg Archaeologist or Sportsmanship) –  warren Nov 21 '11 at 19:09
@warren There are some queries for Data Explorer that can give you a rough idea for some badges, but badges like Sportsmanship that require checking votes (which aren't included in the data for DE) can only have wildly-inaccurate and useless queries. Unless the devs implement more progress trackers that's the best you can do, though. –  Matthew Read Nov 21 '11 at 20:01
