Some of the badges (like Archaeologist) could have some "Go get it" links in the User Profile in the "How do you earn this badge?" dialog.

Is this possible? Is this planned?
There are two things that we need in order to have 'Go get it' on a next badge. The first is, somewhere to link. The second is, well, the first, and some way to make it obvious what you're supposed to do there.
We also want the experience to be net positive for us and for the user. Saying "Here, quick, go find 100 things to edit" kinda scares me.
I'm open to suggestions on what we could link to (for any of them that don't have the button) - I'd really like for all but very few them to have it because it's such a convenient way to be engaged from a user's perspective.
Archeologist (it just so happens that you mentioned it as an example) might not be the best one to work on, but I'm open to ideas. If it makes sense, seems straight forward from a user's perspective and it's a call to action that isn't too scary if it goes wrong - we'll definitely consider it.
