Why did I get a llama from you?

:bulletblue:I give almost all the people I come across llamas. Everyone in my inbox gets a llama.

:bulletblue:I use a llama giving program that generates random deviants. It gives llamas to people who've given more llamas than received.

What's a llama badge?

:bulletblue:Please read Improved Llama Badge FAQ

What about those other badges on your profile?

:bulletblue:Sometimes the deviantART staff will release new badges for a limited time. Those badges are pretty special and rare. You can only receive those once and you can't trade them like llamas.

Why do you give llamas?

:bulletblue:To get visitors that way I can help fellow llama traders.

:bulletblue:To make more friends. Feel free to note me!

:bulletblue:To achieve my goal of getting 100,000 badges.

:bulletblue:To share the pointless fun called "llama love".

:bulletblue:I don't expect llamas in return, but I do highly appreciate it.

Don't like your llama?

:bulletblue:Please don't stir an argument with me.

:bulletblue:I'm terribly sorry if you don't like your llama. I can't check people's profiles when giving llamas because it is completely unrealistic from a practical and timely standpoint.

:bulletblue:Llamas aren't necessarily something you deserve, but they can be. More so llamas are something you earn by trading.

:bulletblue:I hope you respect the fact that this a hobby of mine and the methods I use.

Hate llamas?

:bulletblue:You can turn off all messages dealing with llamas in your account settings:

Love llamas?

Hey, thanks for the llama badge barrage! :)
I don't really seek out llama badges and usually stick to the 'receive one, give one back' rule (my own way of doing things).
I just prefer to naturally 'grow' badges this way. 
I don't trade or involve myself with artificially inflating llamas; I like receiving attention for my art more than badges.
Faves, commentary and watches are much appreciated!  

Thanks for your interest though and don't let my views put you off continuing your crusade to reach 100,000 llamas!   

All the best,

What program do you have that generates the random deviants? I'd be interested

Kishan-Bagaria has made his llama giving bot available on GitHub. It also automates other features of DeviantArt. A guide on using this bot is not available. It does require some computer knowledge to set up.

I'm soooooo late in giving you a llama.  I haven't been on my deviant page is a lloooonnnggg time. But I gave you one and they somehow turned into runaway llamas.  Go figure.  I dunno why it did that.  XD  Better late than never!!!

Have a great weekend!

I agree better late than never.

It said you gave me a runaway llama because it'll show whatever llama the deviant achieved.

Llamas always auto upgrade themselves to whatever the user has when you give them. 
if the user has over 10 Llamas, when you click to giv thm a Llama it will auto turn itself into whatever they have earned. if you were to give me a llame for example,it would auto upgerade to a super albino Llama

Thanks for the info. I give out lots of llamas myself.
I give them for everybody who faves a deviation of mine or who gives me a llama first. Whenever I fave a deviation, I also give a llama to the artist.
