What the fuck is a llama badge?

:iconnusquamnihil:
Nusquamnihil Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2010
I'd like to post this in the help forum, but there is no help forum.

I'd like to post this in the help chat room, but apparently I'm missing 18+ add-ons to access the chat rooms. (Thanks, DA. This makes you the only site I've been to where I've been unable to get into a chat room.)

I've been away from DA for a while. I came back today. In my message box, is says, "so-and-so has sent you a Llama badge!" I clicked on it to see what it was, and it brought me to so-and-so's deviantart page.

I ignored it and continued to surf, but then I got a second message. I clicked on it, and holy fuck! I got a SECOND Llama badge!

So I'm left wondering: what the fuck is a llama badge? And is DA planning on making any other retarded changes that make DA more like facebook?

i'm trying to find out what the llamas are about, too....but the answers here did not help a bit.... cause "llama=llama" is totally not an answer to your questions.....and neither to mine....

Lol. I had to google "Llama badge" to see what it was. I am not exactly savvy at the DA stuff, for some reason the format confuses me.....Annnnnnyhoooo.

I saw someone called LlamaWhore had sent me a llama badge, which didn't seem that strange given the username. When I checked in again I noticed there was another one from a non-llama-affiliated username. I was delighted to discover that I too can send Llamas, my only disappointment was that Llamas had been chosen over Alpacas which are far funnier than Llamas.

Llamatastic!

I've been away from DA for a while. I came back (a few hours ago) to find 2 llama badges in my message box. I posted on a forum to find out what they were.

Brain + eyes = I now know what the llama badges are. Unless you're referring to someone else...?

I signed im, and went to my page. On the left-hand side of my page, about half the size of my finger nail, is a picture of a llama.

Besides that, my page looks EXACTLY like it did the last time I signed in.

Why exactly do you think this tiny llama picture is supposed to be so obvious to someone who isn't looking for it? Especially when I don't sit and look at my profile page anyways - I click on "messages" and start checking out deviations.

Llama badges were introduced in this year's April Fools Day. It was meant to some silly activity, but the popularity of it skyrocketed so much that the admins have made it a permanent thing.

The aim of it is to get as many llama badges as possible in order to upgrade your llama. If you give a llama, you get a llama if the person you gave it to participates. There's the normal llama that you start off with, which becomes a super llama, then an albino llama, then a super albino llama... etc...

If you collect 100,000 golden llamas, you get the golden llama badge, which is the highest upgrade.

I don't bother with it, but it's fun towards some people, but as annoying as heck to others.

Thank you, I appreciate your explanation. I'm happy it's an April Fools thing that just stuck on, and not...part of more changes. >.<

No problem. :)

It's fun in a way. I don't mind that it has become permanent and I wouldn't mind if they took the whole thing down.

How is a llama badge anything like Facebook?

:iconnusquamnihil:

On facebook, people can send you stuff. On your profile page, you can see "so-and-so sent you a (fill in the blank here)". An egg, a picture, flowers, mafia guns, whatever. I used to get tons of those. Then I found the option that makes it so I don't see those any more.

Again, I've been away from DA for a while. Apparently, you can now send llama badges. I assumed you could send other stuff as well.

You can't, and I haven't seen anyone sending anyone stuff like that since I was like 14ish on Facebook many years ago :lol:

Maybe I should edit this and say that on the page I was looking at, there was no help forum.

It has happened before where pages on DA did not load completely, and the info I needed was the part that had not loaded. :\

Is that...Sylar?

Wtf?

I used to think he was hot but now that I can picture him as Spock...

Just...no.

The actor also plays Sylar, and Spock. Both are done convincingly to my taste, but it is odd to see Spock and not think wait...wah?? Spocks...got his own style of hotness I suppose.

Thank you for clearing up what I had already figured out. :|

It's the hair and eyebrows. Just doesn't do it for me.

I know, but my main point is agreeing with the idea that seeing him in that role throws you off. That style of hair/eyebrows doesn't cut it for anyone...sides fans, cosplayers, etc.
