It would be nice perhaps on each badge to have some infication 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:

Look at the bottom of the tag wiki page. Example for [c].

To get there:

  • Click on the tag.
  • See the "Tag info" box at the top? Click the "about" link in there.

Thanks! Perhaps this number would be good as a mouseover for those tag images in the link I provided? –  Tom Aug 25 '10 at 13:30
Actually, the number shown on the info page is only the upvotes, while the actual badge is determined by your score as would be shown on the Stats page. If you aren't on the all-time stats, you can ballpark your score from the info page but it's not necessarily going to be accurate. A customized search of [tag] votes:0 wiki:0 would get you all answers (if you just skip past the questions that are listed first). –  Grace Note Aug 25 '10 at 13:31
I appreciate there might be some special searches you can do to see this, but don't you think it would be nice to have a visual representation so you can see at a glance which ones you are nearest? I'm a badge whore (I'm a bit OCD about it) so it would be nice to see :) –  Tom Aug 25 '10 at 13:36
@Tom I don't disagree with improving the interface (considering there is currently no way to directly see this value if you aren't in the all-time stats), but I don't see a harm in providing a workaround to use while waiting. –  Grace Note Aug 25 '10 at 13:37
I wasn't critisising the work around, sorry if I came off as brash, I just didn't want my suggestion to be burried labelled as "you can already see this information" :) –  Tom Aug 25 '10 at 13:52
FYI, apparently this has been recently moved - now it is at the bottom of the Stats page. And the number shown there is your score, not just the number of upvotes. –  Péter Török Sep 1 '10 at 7:58
@Peter, So is it not possible for lower rep users to see this anymore? –  M. Tibbits Jul 7 '11 at 22:11
@M. Tibbits, you can always see your own scores on that page, even if you are not in the first 20. But now you can even see your scores for each tag on your own user page by hovering over the preceding number. –  Péter Török Jul 7 '11 at 22:22
I don't see how this answers the question. I could find no reference/indication of tag badge progress by looking at the tag info box/about page... except for Research Assistant. –  Werner Jul 14 '14 at 15:52
@Werner this answer is 4 years old, that's why I posted a new one :) –  Stijn Jul 14 '14 at 18:36
