It would be nice if for each badge to have some indication as to how close you are to earning that badge. Any chance of this being introduced?

You can see your progress by hovering over the tag score in your profile:

(Most) Stack sites now have a new profile setup, and we have two areas - Profile and Activity.


Profile tab

Your Profile tab shows progress towards tags in a more structured and designed way.
This area is more a general summary and designed for other users viewing your profile (you can also see it).

  • Your tag with the highest Score is listed on one row, with total Score, total Posts, and a percentage of total posts which contain that tag
  • Then your next two highest scoring tags are listed on one row with Score and total Posts
  • Then 3 tags are listed on one row, in descending Score order and total Score and Posts are shown for each tag
  • Hovering over any part of the area which contains a tag (not just the Score) reveals a tooltip with additional information about wiki and non-wiki total answers and scores for that tag; Hovering over the tag itself shows the tag Excerpt;

profile-tab-info



Activity tab

Your Activity tab shows a summary of your 10 top tags listed in descending score order.
This area is designed more for your viewing than other users (other users can also see it).

  • To the left of each tag is your total score for that tag
  • To the right of each tag is the total number of posts you have participated in with that tag
  • Hovering over the Score reveals a tooltip with additional information about wiki and non-wiki total answers and scores for that tag; Hovering over the total Post count confirms "total X Posts in Y tag"; Hovering over the tag itself shows the tag Excerpt;

Viewing information on all your tags

Clicking on the "View all tags" link in your Profile tab and on "View more" link in your Activity tab both take you to the profile Activity tab with sub tab tags selected:

All of your participation tags

This shows all tags in descending Score order which you have participated in, with total Score on the left and total Posts on the right for each individual tag.

Hovering here is the same as your main "Activity" tab:

  • The Score reveals a tooltip with additional information about wiki and non-wiki total answers and scores for that tag
  • The total Post count confirms "total X Posts in Y tag"
  • The tag itself shows the tag Excerpt
