Original Staff Merit Badges "Badges started out as merit badges for deviantART staff. They were only available to staff for special accomplishments like merit badges for the boy scouts. We started making them available to members by way of special events like our 10th birthday bash and hidden pageviews. They gained a lot of popularity about 3 years ago with the introduction of the llama badge system for our annual April fools prank. The rest is history, you guys can't seem to get enough of them. :B"

This badge is given to developers who do not disable the flag before they go to sleep at night (and thus no new code can be tested/fixed that night).

Looks like it is no more possible to buy a cake badge for a group unless that group already has a cake badge. That is because the Give buttons have disappered from the badge pages. (Also because of that the deviantART users can't give Llamas and Cakes to themselves anymore.) :(

If a group already has a cake badge you can click the cake badge of that group and find the Give Cake button there. Example:
badges-of-deviantart.deviantar…

It's a shame because there are few public badges now. I hope that all old badges become available again.

Badges started as merit badges for the staff (like the boy scout merit badges). 'deviantART staff' is not only the admins, also some other volunteers and moderators have got those badges. Because also other deviantART users wanted badges soon there were badges that were available for everyone. But still some of the new badges are only for the staff and also a some sort of inside joke (for example we still don't know why some of the staff got the Master Plumber badge).

But everyone can become a deviantART staff and get the staff badges. But it is very difficult to become a part of that staff. You usually need to understand how websites work, how to fix bugs and how to do many other website stuff. It also helps if you can meet the other deviantART staff people and that is difficult if you don't live in the United States.
