Stack Apps is a question and answer site for apps, scripts, and development with the Stack Exchange API. Join them; it only takes a minute:

Here's how it works:
  1. Anybody can ask a question
  2. Anybody can answer
  3. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top

If you look at your user profile you can see:

visited  x days, x consecutive

So for the achievement/badge "Fanatic - Visited the site each day for 100 consecutive day" I can calculate the number of days I still need to achieve this.

Is there more API calls one could request to improve achievements/badges?


  • How many more up-votes in this tag before silver badge
  • How many votes left before hitting the maximum 40 votes in a day
  • How many posts have I edited


maybe even more information on how you earned the achievement/badge

There could be a ton more but I hope you get the idea

This question came from our discussion, support, and feature requests site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Your profile shows number of upvotes in tags and number of votes over the day. – Matthew Read Aug 12 '11 at 16:55
is there and API call for this? – Phill Pafford Aug 12 '11 at 16:56
As far as I can tell the whole user profile part of this question is a red herring; that's not an API call either. You're just asking for API routes that expose badge progress? – Michael Mrozek Aug 12 '11 at 17:38
well an API for more in-depth user info for achievements/badges. – Phill Pafford Aug 12 '11 at 17:53

You could try the Stack Exchange API if you haven't already.

yeah I've been playing around with it but not all the user information is there that I want – Phill Pafford Aug 12 '11 at 17:58
That's what I was afraid of. Perhaps you could revise your question to ask for this information to be added to the API? – Chris Aug 12 '11 at 18:29
I tagged it as a feature-request, or is this not enough? – Phill Pafford Aug 12 '11 at 18:42
Well, it sounds a little too vague right now. Instead of "Is there more API calls one could request to improve achievements/badges?", I would say "I would like to have the following calls added to the API," followed by a list of your ideal formats described just like the calls on the StackExchange API page. I personally like the idea of an API to find the answer to "How many posts have I edited?", but instead of "How many votes left before hitting the maximum 40 votes in a day?" I would just ask "How many votes have I used today?" and, similarly, "How many up-votes in this tag?" – Chris Aug 12 '11 at 18:48
