I really like the "Next badge" feature that was introduced on SO recently; it's nice to see how close you are to grabbing the next venerable badge.
That said, I was hoping that the Generalist badge was among the badges you could pick for your next badge tracker. After a quick check on the Generalist Progression I realised that I'm actually quite close to achieving it, in fact only one vote separates me :)
The progress could show X / 20, where X is the number of top 40 tags you've earned 15+ votes for.
The guide that explains how to achieve the badge could either:
- pick a top-40 tag in which you have the highest votes but less than 15, or
- pick the top 5 popular tags in which you haven't answered yet
