There seems to be a minor issue with the next badge that is chosen on the user profile. On Meta Stack Overflow I had just gotten the Electorate badge and the next badge the system chose for me was Custodian. The problem with this is that I do not have the necessary reputation in order to earn this badge on that site. Would it be possible to put in a check to preventing it from choosing a badge you don't have the ability to earn?

    You can earn it, it might just take a while... step 1: get more rep. ;) – Adam Lear May 28 '15 at 19:14

    Or you could manually choose a different one to track. Though it does seem a little uncouth of the random badge-tracking algorithm to choose one you have to get a new privilege for first. – Zibbobz May 28 '15 at 19:47
  • @Zibbobz I did chose a different badge to track, but it would be nice to have a badge I can achieve without having to increase my rep by 3.4x what it currently is. :) – Joe W May 28 '15 at 19:55
  • @JoeW It's a motivational tool! ;) – Adam Lear May 28 '15 at 20:02

Custodian will no longer be suggested/auto-tracked as an onboarding badge on child meta sites, since they only have a subset of very high rep review queues.

This change will go out in the next build, probably in a few hours (but not by me, I'm going to bed :)

    Just don't forget to mark status-completed when it's done! ;) – Shadow9 Jun 2 '15 at 6:33
