When I go to look at badges in my profile (the "Activity" tab), I can order them by "recent", and voila, the badges are listed in order of most recently earned.

For badges which I can earn more than once (e.g. Nice Answer or Nice Question) that I have earned a times, the category is displayed at the point in which I earned the badge most recently, showing "Nice Question x a".

This can be helpful if I'm trying to figure out how many times I earned a badge (and you can still see it by re-arranging the badges in other ways, such as "class" and "name").

What if I want to see the order in which I earned each badge, regardless of the other times I earned it? Is there a way to see this?

I'd like to be able to see something like this, for example:

  1. Nice Question
  2. Nice Answer
  3. Curious
  4. Benefactor
  5. Nice Question
  6. . . .

Find out which question/answer awarded you the badge is related, but I'm not talking about identifying a certain post with a certain badge.


Is there a way to view the order in which individual badges were earned?

Click on the badge in your profile, which takes you to a page with that badge and the number of times you earned it with the date of each time listed in reverse chronological order.


Some people have earned certain badges many times over, but I doubt anyone needs or likely wants to be able to sort them by order, so the above is enough IMO.

  • "I was focusing primarily of comparing a badge of a given type to a badge of another type" Your question doesn't mention "compare" at all. In which case I'm not sure, does SEDE offer anything? (I've barely used it) – James May 20 '15 at 0:32
