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. 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.

Your 5 newest badges are featured on the Home tab of your profile. If you arranged your badge order before the 2020 Eclipse, those will be your featured badges. Your newest badge will push your right most featured badge out if you earn any new badges (even if you arranged them).

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 deviantart.com/GROUP-NAME-HERE/badges/cake/
Llama badges can be given to groups using deviantart.com/GROUP-NAME-HERE/badges/llama/

Click here to give this group a llama. Click here to create a link like this for yourself. Go through the steps and when you are asked to find "gmi-gruser_id", look for "userid" instead because of site changes since the link creator was made.

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).

You can feature 5 badges on your profile page. If you have collected more than 5 badges you can choose the featured badges here: https://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: https://me.deviantart.com/badges/ There is a link 'Clear all featured badges'.
This imgur gallery shows the badges that the Eclipse update broke due to the removed categories site wide feature. I screenshotted and recorded:
- the categories needed to get certain badges with their corresponding badges above them
- what badges USED to look like on dA
- Gifs of how to rearrange, remove, and add featured badges in old dA
Tiny fruit divider (F2U)
This is all of the new information about badges I have compiled.
Everything labeled with :new: in this journal was recently added https://www.deviantart.com/llamalist/journal/Facts-About-Llama-Badges-535878066
Your 5 newest badges are featured on the Home tab of your profile. If you arranged your badge order before the 2020 Eclipse, those will be your featured badges. Your newest badge will push your right most featured badge out if you earn any new badges (even if you arranged them).
The Llama Giver Button Creator still works! It allows you to make a link just like this. I figured out a work around finally. Go through the steps and when you are asked to find "gmi-gruser_id", look for "userid" instead because of site changes since the link creator was made.
This is what the dA help desk said about llamatrade no longer being available: https://www.deviantart.com/comments/1/841291610/4841875794

Hey is anyone else having issues when it comes to alerts? 

I have all my boxes checked for my live alerts but I noticed I haven't been getting any llama badge alerts and I give and receive them very frequently

Yeah, seems like this is off – either it's another bug or on purpose . . .

Hopefully this gets re-enabled, at least as an option. – Though it's a gimmick, giving/exchanging llamas has been a nice and convenient way to get in touch with the community for a decade; and new deviants easily learn from it. But alas, in the eyes of the new HQ, would this probably just cause too much unproductive data traffic and profile commenting without selling anything in short time, who knows? So for the sake of Eclipse again they're applying the ax against dA's legacy here, from one day to the other, and without further notice: fighting the llama mafia by any means – that's my impression. I already had such a premonition (or call it paranoia). Anyway, this still wouldn't drag me into the new chatting.

I think there are various reasons for that. Some badges were private from the beginning and only staff could obtain them. Other badges were time sensitive and you only had a short window to get them. If you were lucky, sometimes badges like that were reintroduced again like the Pumpkin badge in 2013 and the 18th Birthday badge. That one I missed getting because I was either too busy or lazy to complete the challenge. Then when I was finally ready to do it, they took the badge away but a few months later they re-introduced it and I was able to get the badge. Sadly though the Pumpkin badge was a surprise otherwise I would have gone after that one too. To this date, I really want that badge. Anyway, the latest reason many badges are unavailable now is because of Eclipse. After the layout change, it became impossible to get some badges because the latest birthday badges required the a certain category to submit to and categories are abolished now. And some others stopped working like the Collective Truth badge because the button to click on to obtain it doesn't work in Eclipse so I would attribute that one as a glitch. I don't have time to go through all badges but other might have stopped working too because of glitches with Eclipse. So I believe those are the various reasons why many of the badges are no longer publicly available. It is unfortunate as I would still like to get the Glass Heroes vs. Villains badge. I didn't realize at the time it was a voting system to obtain the badge and I assumed you had to submit a deviation like with the Planet of the Apes badge. I regret not reading the article at the time and I missed out on getting that badge. I also wish I had the 2009 Birthday badge. 2008 to 2010 was the time I was absent from deviantART because I started a full-time, becoming addicted to Facebook and playing a game so it left me literally no time for deviantART and I missed out on that badge. You can only hope that by a small miracle that the badge you want might become available again but unlikely. I feel sorry for new deviants who will never be able to earn badges available in the past because they weren't a member of deviantART back then.

Has anyone else notice that DA messed up the order of their badges with no way to fix them. My badges were in the correct order before eclipse.

It's the same as me and with everyone else too I think. Hopefully, that will be fixed in the future. If you read this article, it says there will be a "new way to use badges".

Did anyone else get the 2020 pride badge and/or the #DAGettingStARTed badge and then see that the badge or badges were gone from their profile page? Does anyone know what's going on?

Maybe it was a glitch? I took a look at your profile and both badges are there.

Which new badge are you talking about? If it's the new Pride2020 badge, you just have to comment on this journal to get it:
However, if you are talking about the new DAGettingStARTed badge, you have to submit a new deviantion with the hashtag #DAGettingStARTed in order to get the badge. You can read more about it here:
I think whatever your new deviation is has to be one of the themes of the videos. I just did mine today and I did a white cat to represent the theme "animal".
