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. Badges can be removed from your account if you contact the help desk.

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"

Those are good ideas!
For a Halloween badge, perhaps it could be of Fella wearing different costumes, and they change the more badges you get/level up. That would be cute!

Vixtri Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2018  Student General Artist
THATTT would be amazing! Yes! if it was fella, each level you'd get a different badge- (lets say.. the badge starts on the 21st-october 31st )at midnight, and whatever level up you got, is the badge you get to keep :D (or perhaps there could be three different badge contests, depending on which one you do, that would be the badge you get. and you can only get one- so you'd have to choose which contest you want to do- and that would determine which badge you get. So everyone can have a slight choice in badge variation :D
