User Badges Information Masterlist

Add this group to your +watch to get notified of new deviantART badges when they come out. All badge fanatics are welcome to join.

Badges are icons that can be added to your personal profile (visible at the top right of your page). Below are listed all the known types of badges, including how to obtain them. Not all badges are publicly available and some have been discontinued.

All badges (except llama and cake) are given by devart, a deviantART System Bot. Because devart is not a human that account can't answer to your questions about the different badges. Also deviantART admins can give some other badges than just llamas and cakes. This group can't give any badges because we are not deviantART admins.

You can feature 5 badges in your profile page. If you have collected more than 5 badges you can choose the featured badges here: me.deviantart.com/badges
Only your first two featured badges are visible in the mobile version of the site.

If you want to remove all featured badges from your profile page go to: me.deviantart.com/badges/ There is a link 'Clear all featured badges'.

If you want to remove all badge notifications go to www.deviantart.com/settings/ge… and choose 'Disable message center notifications for badges'.

A group can have badges besides llamas and cakes if it was converted from a regular dA account using convertaclub before July 4th, 2010. Click here for proof.

Cake badges can be given to groups using GROUPNAME.deviantart.com/badges/cake
Llama badges can be given to groups using GROUPNAME.deviantart.com/badges/llama

Click here to give this group a llama. Click here to create a link like this for yourself.


Click on each badge image for an example.

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"

The latest user script badges: I wonder if it is legal at all to create and to provide access to installable copies of original badges from dA~ Do you got their permissions?
Though it's a pity I missed the Biting Pear I'm not going to gain it this way.

All user script badges are only visible to that person who is using that user script. So for example if you use a script that makes the Pear badge appear at your profile that is completely OK. No one else sees that script badge at your profile. For example many people edited the famous Pink Glitter Llama script to get the Halloween badge. :) 

I have used various scrips on dA, for example I used to have the Pink Glitter Llama. Currently I have removed all the ads, replaced the deviantART logo with the old logo, I have hidden More Like This, I have hidden the share buttons, I and I use deviantNAV v7. And these changes are only visible to me. Using a script only affects to your own web browser.

I know this all, but that's not the point! You give access to (dA's own) copyrighted material not made by you and even outside the domain of dA (i.e. userstyles.org/ ). It doesn't matter if you replaced the new with the old logo, or if it is only visible to a deviant's screen. Anyway you need the permission and/or a license for redistribution. (Besides, the copied badge would not be only visible to yourself if show e.g. a screenshot of it.)

So what will come next, the copy of the SFGP Cake badge..? Then where is this going to end? And where is the fun if you can get any dA badge at any time for nothing?

However, I've just asked someone from the dA staff; let's wait for their answer. If they agree to these badges it'd be fine to me as well (though I won't use them).

1. Go to the profile pagle of a group.
2. Write /badges/cake after the web address of that group. Example: GROUPNAMEHERE.deviantart.com/badges/cake
3. Go to the cake badge page and there you should find a button to give a cake to that group.
