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

While reading the StackOverflow election page, I noticed that when I click through to information about a particular badge, e.g. Civic Duty, it doesn't show whether I've obtained that badge.

I realise I can see this information in other ways, but would it be possible to include my own badge count on this page, e.g.

Proposed badge status image

Whether a basic tick is shown or a badge count, I'm not overly fussed. I guess we should err on the side of a count, as this has been requested in other pages.

I was just thinking of a similar feature: Showing progress towards a badge. You show "Civic Duty Voted 300 or more times", I'd like to see "Civic Duty Voted 300 or more times (you've voted 280 times)". – jimhark Feb 26 '13 at 8:45
@jimhark While that does sound lovely, it would be a significantly more challenging feature to implement (i.e. custom per-badge metrics). I've opted for simplicity here in the hope it may get implemented. – Duncan Feb 26 '13 at 9:13

The badge detail page will now show you whether you have earned the badge or now.

Where a badge has been awarded to you multiple times, the checkmark tooltip will display how many times it has been.

With you in rev 2014.4.29.1577 (meta rev 2014.4.29.2200).

You mean impatient ;) – Oded Apr 29 '14 at 11:50
Some devs even go as far as waiting until it's live but the risk of forgetting is too big so personally prfer your way. :) – Shadow Wizard Apr 29 '14 at 11:51
