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.

Screenshot of what this is:

Is this possible? Is this planned?

    Where would you go to? All the old questions on the site? All unanswered questions against all your favourite tags? Something else? – Robert Longson May 28 '15 at 9:06
  • @RobertLongson Any LQ questions of 6 months or older. But I could be 'wrong' on that. I'm not asking for it to be done 'now' just enquiring if there were any general plans? – Pureferret May 28 '15 at 9:07
  • when you tag [feature-request] you're asking for it to be done now. If you just wanted to know what the plans are you would have tagged [support] or [discussion] – Kate Gregory May 28 '15 at 11:29
  • How is this question unclear? C'mon people. – Tim Post May 28 '15 at 11:57
  • @TimPost: What are 'go get it' links? – Patrick Hofman May 28 '15 at 12:01
  • @PatrickHofman the button that shows up when you click (some) badges on the new profile. i.stack.imgur.com/AsgQD.png – ᔕᖺᘎᕊ May 28 '15 at 12:03

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.
