More badge progress indicators

Is it possible to make something like:

Well, I think of course it's possible, so could developers do that? ))) I think it would be more informative and interesting to see your progress.

    Some badges are awarded multiple times. So displaying progress could be troublesome. – Aziz Shaikh Oct 1 '12 at 9:27
  • @AzizShaikh Why? You display the progress for one, then when you get it, it displays the progress for the second one... no? – Alenanno Oct 1 '12 at 9:46
  • @Alenanno Which one? Most recent, Most viewed, Most voted, Most active? I didn't say that it cannot be done. I think it is doable but the effort may not provide that much value. – Aziz Shaikh Oct 1 '12 at 9:49
  • @AzizShaikh You mean the multiple requirements? I see... – Alenanno Oct 1 '12 at 9:51

This is implemented for the reviewing badges. See this link.

These badges require your effort (reviewing) so you have a direct effect on the progress.

There are several issues with progress indicators for these badges:

  • They can be awarded for each question and answer, so each of your questions and answers should have a separate badge progress block that distracts from the purpose of the site.
  • These badges depend on votes of other users, so you have no direct influence on the progress (other than providing good content). So the use of these progress indicators is a bit questionable.
  • Besides, you can very easy calculate the progress for these badges because of their dependency of the votes.

So I don't think we need a progress indicator for these badges.


There is an app for this.

Though like you I think it would be good to somehow integrate progress into SO itself, either as you suggested or on the badge solo page, e.g. here
