This question already has an answer here:
I am confused about the next badge. Here is mine
We can see the rule of next badge here . It said that "Progress to next badge" bar automatically selects the badge you're closest to earning (or that's most logical to go for next). Now my next badge is "Critic" and maybe it is most logical to go for next. Why not "Benefactor", "Citizen Patrol" or "Cleanup"? They seems to be most logical to go for next too.
