I am trying to obtain more badges on Stack Overflow. For example, to gain Archaeologist I need to edit 100 inactive posts but I am not keeping track of the number of posts I've edited. For Deputy I need to raise 80 helpful flags, etc. How can I view all my statistics about the badges, such as how many more edits I need to do, etc. I'm not doing it for badges, but I can spend a bit more effort if I'm close to getting a badge.
The majority of the badges which exist do not have any method of "tracking" your progress built into the site. Simple badges such as Nice Answer/Question which require a number of upvotes can be tracked by simply viewing your list of questions and answers.
Custodian, Reviewer, and Steward can be tracked in the review panel via the progress bar at the top of each review task. You can also hover over the progress bar in order to open a detailed tracking box of that badge and several other badges:
Strunk & White and Copy Editor can also be tracked in the review panel (see Reviewer).
Electorate can be tracked in the review panel (see Reviewer) or you can track it manually by calculating your statistics in the profile page (see Civic Duty).
Civic Duty can be tracked in the review panel or on your profile page in the bottom right summary of votes.
Research Assistant can be tracked by visiting any tag wiki. Your progress will appear at the right.
Deputy and Marshal can be tracked on your profile page by viewing your helpful flags count at the end of your stats at the top. This item only appears if you've had at least one flag deemed helpful.
Enthusiast and Fanatic can be tracked on your profile page next to the "visited" stats near the top. There will be a "n consecutive days" piece there.
Epic, Legendary, Generalist, and some others can all be tracked on a single page using the Stinking Badges! Stack App.
With regard to edits (before you have the edit privilege), you can see the total number of suggested edits in your profile -
Go to the
activity tab and select
suggestions. They are suggested edits because they need peer review before they are accepted.
helpful flags you have raised should be displayed in your profile -
If you want a bit more statistics regarding how close you are to other badges, you can add and authorize this Stack App - StinkingBadges
With the more recent changes, badge progress can be seen by hovering over the progress bar in the statistics tab on one of the six pages for review (First Posts, Late Answers, Close Votes, Low Quality Posts, Reopen Votes, and Suggested Edits).
Open the review page1, and click on one of the six Recent Reviews links:
Click on the Stats tab, and hover the mouse cursor over the progress bar (just to the left of the Stats tab):
The badges include:
Reviewing (they are also shown in the right-hand panel on the page)
Voting (the bronze badges are not shown)
Editing (the silver badge Strunk & White does not appear to be ever shown)
- Copy Editor (gold)
 The review link on the top of the page is not present below a reputation of 125, but it works as a URL (for example,
http://mechanics.stackexchange.com/review). Reputation points may be so low that all links to the review queues are dimmed out, but the URLs to those also work (for example,
http://mechanics.stackexchange.com/review/suggested-edits/). In fact, a way to avoid all the mouse action above and go directly to the page with the progress bar is to add
review/suggested-edits/stats to the site domain name (for example,
In the new user interface, you can go to the following path and track most of the badges from here.
User Profile ==> Activity (Tab) ==> Badges ==> Choose Settings icon at the bottom right
You can then something like this:
