Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

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. – Adam 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
