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.

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. Jul 25, 2017 at 12:06

    @VadimOvchinnikov - that just ignores that there's a cost to implementing software. We have made our decisions based on these costs.
