Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 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

When viewing a list of badge recipients it would be handy to have a link that goes to a query in the dataexplorer to show how close/far you are from achieving that badge. User and badge ID could be passed as url params.

(Inspired by waffles' comment on Strunk-and-White problem?)

This is not always possible.

For example, see this question: SEDE translation of Legendary badge query
or the data for the latest badge (as at 25-Feb-2011): Create a badge for excellence in site maintenance/flagging

SE DataExplorer does not have enough data to model a good portion of the queries.

The second and more crucial issue is that you want such a link to be able to check frequently - well, SEDE is updated weekly (on Monday)

How frequently is Stack Exchange Data Explorer updated?
The data is updated early every Monday morning around 3:00 UTC. The last update was Apr 26 at 6:43.
