We have a lot of badges that are not tracked. I think that we can track them. I don't see any obstacles in tracking most of badges.

I don't see any obstacles in tracking most of badges.

Our database servers disagree.

The badges that are not trackable have mostly been selected as non-trackable because tracking them (for each and every user) would cause an overly high load on our databases and systems. A bunch of badges are very expensive to calculate and calculating progress on them is even more so.

  • You can implement tracking that updates this badge stats once an hour/once a day etc. This is more about details of implementation than about idea itself. You have already implemented some tracking badge mechanism, you should just share your results periodically. – Vadim Ovchinnikov Jul 25 '17 at 12:06

    @VadimOvchinnikov - that just ignores that there's a cost to implementing software. We have made our decisions based on these costs. – Oded Jul 25 '17 at 12:07
