What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
Another try: http://data.stackexchange.com/stackoverflow/q/734
Unfortunately there is no way to tell when you are going to get the badge :)
However, this should show your progress with the top 40 tags:
Works now, all's cool

Should I fix it? I'm so far from being a generalist, I don't even recognise what language it is written in... No, wait! I've got it: those insert/join/seclects mean it's some sort of query language, right? And the errors have some funny four-letter word "Linq" in them: I've seen that at Lambda the Ultimate: could that be the name of the language? Ha! [linq] isn't a top-40 tag, I'm fine. Phew, another technology I don't have to learn to become a generalist...
Because of the tag “info” page, we have a faster up-to-date value of total tag score.
To run, go to any page in Stack Overflow, then paste the following into Firebug:
After you run it, the page will be replaced by a table summarizing the total upvotes of the top 40 tags. I think it's easy to convert into GreaseMonkey script but I'm lazy :)
Edit: Updated because the tag-wiki format is changed. Now it is accurate because the info page now shows the score instead of upvotes.
You also must change the user in the first line.
On the plus side: my version works, it shows some status updates (even without the firebug console) and it also displays gold, silver or bronze backgrounds according to the badge you already have for an individual tag:
And here is a minimized bookmarklet version:
Just create a new bookmark and paste this code into the URL (just change your user name). Remember: it only works from the tags page.
Edit: fixed a bug for huge scores containing a comma. Sorry, I ain't there yet :-)
