Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

When I'm in the review queue on Stack Overflow, I can hover over my badge progress and see something like this:

enter image description here

However, I do not have the Strunk & White Badge yet. Why does it already show me the Copy Editor badge? I think it should show Strunk & White, then have it transform into Copy Editor when I achieve S&W.

In contrast, it already does this functionality (I assume) for the Reviewer badge, which I assume will transform to Steward progress bar.

Why should it not show progress to Copy Editor? Strunk & White is but a stop on the way there. – Martijn Pieters Dec 5 '12 at 15:14
@MartijnPieters: Because that behavior is inconsistent with the behavior for the progress display from Reviewer to Steward. Reviewer is, as you say, but a stop on the way to Reviewer as well. – John Dibling Dec 5 '12 at 15:16
I sorta-kinda agree but don't care enough. :-) – Martijn Pieters Dec 5 '12 at 15:23
@MartijnPieters I did say it was a small change :) – durron597 Dec 5 '12 at 15:23
Well to be fair I don't much care either. Otherwise I would have provided an answer to the question. :) – John Dibling Dec 5 '12 at 15:49
