Display Start date on Enthusiast Badges

Why, exactly? I mean, I don't understand what purpose it serves. Since those badges are based on days (and not months), most people cannot quickly externalize time from a a date.

Telling someone to do something 100 days from April 5, 2016 does not instantly jump out as July 14, 2016 to them. Also, most people would not quickly realize immediately that 100 days from Jan 1, 2016 is April 10, 2016 but 100 days from Jan 1, 2017 is April 11, 2017.

The badges show how many days into the streak you are, which seems like exactly the information needed.

I've lost a day somewhere this past week. I didn't lose my streak, but I have lost a day. Having a start date would let me do my own math.

OCD much? At some point you will have to accept the things which cannot be changed, and identify the things which do not matter if they are not changed, and be at peace with that.

If you can't be at peace, try this. The badge tracker shows how many days you need. Do the math backwards from today and you now know your start date. Post that date in your bio, facebook, and knock on your neighbors' doors to tell them, and then 100 days later you can all have a party celebrating your success of logging into a website daily. While waiting for that, you can go back through all the forums to find the one day you didn't post about something being wrong, or something you want fixed, or what xbone you aren't going to buy because you only want the one that has the picture of your favorite game in the box, and that's how you'll find your missing day, which again didn't break a streak but must be fixed.

Adding nothing constructive to a thread near you

What exactly is the point of this thread?

It's probably a matter of when you check, I believe there is a date behind the scenes on this, so you can't lose a day.

Anyways, being able to internalize it from a set starting point would benifit myself and maybe a few others.

You offer nothing constructive and make it seem as asking for a date to be add to the badge would mean a complete rewrite of the entire site to get this accomplished. So instead you rather attack me and instigate a fight because you have nothing better to do. Luckily you have Zero say in the matter.
