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
