For Flagging there are 3 badges available,

  1. First flagged post - Citizen Patrol
  2. Raised 80 helpful flags - Deputy
  3. Raised 500 helpful flags - Marshal

We have Badge progress for reviewed task as following image ? From this image we can see if I review 560 more than I will be awarded with Steward badge.

Can we have stats to flagged-summary as it to encourage people to flag posts ?

Do we want to encourage people to flag posts? We want to encourage people to flag posts well. Will a badge progress thingymajig help with that? –  ben is uǝq backwards Nov 8 '12 at 9:33
    
@Ben To get clear idea how far from badge is main aspect, something like as shown in image in question. Also badge is kind of motivation factor (indirect) like appreciation in our field. Anyways it was just an idea never mind if you doesn't feel helping. –  Janak Nirmal Nov 8 '12 at 9:48

While I neither agree nor disagree about this, I can see the difference between those groups of badges.

Review actions are handed to us on a golden plate in a very friendly and effective manner. Just click a link and start reviewing. So having this, live progress is essential so you can see how much is left until you can "rest". :)

Flagging posts is different. We don't have any friendly mechanism giving us posts to flag; this is something that is done after you arrive to a certain post somehow and see something wrong about it.

Having summary for the flagging badges is just something "nice to have", but in my opinion if such thing is implemented then badge progress for ALL other relevant badges should also be implemented, and I doubt such thing will happen.

flagging-summary page doesn't display anything like badge progress. As of now, it shows only total counts and details of flags –  gnat Nov 8 '12 at 8:04
    
@gnat: Yes. But by that helpful flags counts we can calculate how far we are from particular badge. For e.g. if my helpful flags are 313, I can easily understand that I am 187 (500-313) flags away from Marshal badge. –  hims056 Nov 8 '12 at 8:07

@hims056 I know about these count but I asked about badges progress. This is not the answer I am looking for. –  Janak Nirmal Nov 8 '12 at 8:26
