Stack Apps is a question and answer site for apps, scripts, and development with the Stack Exchange API. It's 100% free, no registration required.

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

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
