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

It would be nice if a checkbox could be added to the /badges page, changing it from this:


To something like this:


It would make it a lot easier to see what badges I'm working towards!

And what about the badges that you will never get? :P – Mysticial Mar 20 '13 at 4:43
I don't care about them two, keep showing them :p It's more to get rid of the long list of stuff that clutters up what I want to be able to immediately see. – Danny Beckett Mar 20 '13 at 4:43
who cares about badge those are always hard to get :P – NullPoiиteя Mar 20 '13 at 4:48
This is a great idea, sure hope this FR gets more play. – Lance Roberts Mar 20 '13 at 5:21
I personally think this idea isn't that bad. What's up with the downvoting? – Prof Pickle Mar 20 '13 at 6:41
@ProfPickle I like it as well - I just think people disagree because it's one of those simple, small (very convenient!) features that aren't really conducive to making SE content itself higher quality. – J. Steen Mar 20 '13 at 8:45
This is now [status-complete] per the new Badges page, which has an "unearned" tab. – Danny Beckett Jun 18 '13 at 23:55

The new badges page supports this feature. there is a earned/unearned tab for this purpose.

It would be nice to have a checkbox, so I can view silver badges I don't have – Cody Guldner Jun 25 '13 at 6:16

In the absence of this being rolled out on the site, I've written a nice little user script to do this.

You can get it from Stack Apps: Hide badges I've already attained

Very nice good sir! – Cody Guldner May 18 '13 at 4:56

Not sure if wee need this. But if, it is maybe better to add another filter to keep the interface clean:

With a checkbox though, we could still filter all/gold/silver/bronze (something that would be nice). With this solution we can't. – Danny Beckett Mar 20 '13 at 6:41
See my new answer. – Danny Beckett May 18 '13 at 4:53
@DannyBeckett - Actually the status is completed as per this suggestion. But I like your suggestion too. :) – hims056 Jun 19 '13 at 4:41
