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

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
