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). There is also a "King of Sleep Flags" badge, for earning the Sleep Flag badge 20 or more times.

RhynWilliams made a suggestion that there should be a new badge for the serial Daily Deviation (DD) suggesters:
support.deviantart.com/entries…
Please read that suggestion! If you think that it is a good idea click the 'Me too!' text at the bottom of that suggestion.

Here is the previous suggestion from Endorell-Taelos for the new badge (Contest Trophy badge):

You can click the 'Me too!' text of that suggestion if you think that it is a good idea. 8-)

All people can to join to this group. If you can't use the 'Join our Group' button then there is problem with your phone's web browser. Then it is good idea to use a computer's web browser to join to our group.

I participated in thoughtART on April Fools day but never got the badge, whereas I noticed some of my friends that did sumbit thoughtART got the badge. Is there a specific reason I didn't get the badge? I believe I deleted the deviation when cleaning out my profile a few weeks ago, but I did participate.

Really many deviantART users had the same problem that they didn't get that badge. :( Maybe the badge system had a glitch. Admins of deviantART know this problem but looks like they don't want to give badges to those people who didn't receive the thoughtART badge. Really many people have complained about the thoughtART badge to the admins.

This group can't give any badges (because we are not admins). We can only give the information what badges are available.

Ah, alright, I understand. I was just wondering is all. But thank you for the information~

I'm glad to know that I'm not the only person who seemed to experience this problem.

We don't know because we are not the admins of deviantART. In 2009 everyone who participated to a Halloween contest got that badge and in 2013 it was a surprise present - people who participated didn't know that they will get that badge. They got that badge many days after the contest had ended.
