UPDATE JUNE 2020: This FAQ post has the up to date info on creating badges

EDIT: THIS POST HAS BEEN RE-WRITTEN FROM A STEEMPEAK POST TO A PEAKD POST ... INCLUDING CHANGES OF LINKS. However references to SteemPeak promotion will remain since the promotion was done by @steempeak

Badges are a brand new feature for PeakD
This post will give RULES / HOW TO / PROMOTION

There are already many badges already live in our list of badges

Some things still to come

  • Badge creator step by step UI
  • Ability to change the creator/recovery account
  • UI for user to proudly display or hide badges
  • Display a badge on a post
  • Easy badge URLs on example:




A nice step by step UI for badge creation hasn't been created yet. But making a public list manually and then having them white-listed is not very hard either.

At the end of the post we'll share how to manually make a public list.


  1. Create badge account
  2. Edit details of account
  3. Follow users on the account
  4. Commnet here to be one of the first 50 approved


We are also working on some UI to help those that are recipients of badges.

Users shoulds be able to quickly:

  • Choose which badges to prominently display (assuming they have a lot)
  • Choose which badges to mute (they don't really want the badge)
  • Maybe some they don't want to show prominently but they are fine with having.



Badges are freely displayed to the RECIPIENTS from SteemPeak.
Free badges for badge CREATORS is a promotion we are presently doing.

First 50 qualified badges will be free for at least 2 years


We will your badges if you do the following:

  1. Can follow our directions below on how to make a public badge.
    (until we finish the badge creator tools)
  2. Be one of the first 50 approved badges.
  3. Be a great example of a good use of badges ... specially creative use showing something new.
    (Our first badges are meant to be good examples of what is possible with badges)
  4. We will also only approve positive badges.

Those are the types of badges we are gonna whitelist for now and add to the system for free.

Remember the public list aspect of the badges are a totally decentralized system... all the functionality we give to those lists are unique to PeakD. So public lists are completely decentralized but the badges are whitelisted by PeakD team.


This is a new feature we are seeing all the ways badges can help our users so we reserve the right to change our policies on this.

  1. Must provide utility to users
  2. A high rate of muting the badge will result in removal of the badge.
    (In particular mutes by users who have been given the badge)
  3. Switching the description or name of the badge deceptively to something not in line with the original idea of the badge will result in removal of badge.
  4. You can change qualifications of the badge as long as you go through and completely update the list of users to comply with the badge.
  5. No opinion based negative badges.
  6. Must describe what the badge is about and why someone got the badge (qualifications)
  7. Creator account must be accurate ... meaning you may have to change it from the name of account creation services like blocktrades or oracle-d.
    (Ability to change this is a feature we can help with soon)


Creating a badge is about creating an account that act as a public list for the badge to use.

STEP 1. Create an account name it "badge-" + (six digits)

EXAMPLES: @badge-777777 , @badge-874543

  • Choose any 6 digits available
  • You may use any system to create an account but we recommend direct creation because we will display the recovery account as the CREATOR... otherwise you'll need to do an action to change the recovery account anyway.
  • does have the ability to use an account creation token


This is how you get to PROFILE SETTINGS

  • A: NAME OF BADGE... please make it describe the Recipients.
    See all the badges presently approved for examples.
  • B: ABOUT ... This one is more demanding because we want you to describe what the badge is about AND the why a recipient qualified to get the badge.
  • C: GRAPHICS ... Upload a SQUARE image that is at least 600x600. Or put a URL there.


You now have an account where you can FOLLOW USERS.

  • We require you follow a good chunk of who you will eventually follow.
    Let's say about 50% in order to get approved.
  • Use the normal follow tools while logged in as your badge.

NOTE: You'll need SP to add users to an account. The resources credits needed to add people to accounts by default is limited. But you can add resource credits needed to add more users by delegating SP.
Go directly to profile -

You can delegate to the account and then when you're done you can un-delegate by changing delegation to 0 or some smaller number.


  • Put your badge name in the comments below.
  • Say why you think the badge will be useful
  • I'll review submissions chronologically from this post and approve.
  • If something is not listed correctly i'll say what needs to be reviewed.


Our goal is to populate the badge list
So that's why we're giving away so many of them while developing new tools for badges.

  • We will still run promotions from time to time until the rest of our tools are completed.
  • They will likely be to get certain types of badges or challenges to find the most unique or useful badges.

Special promotions may be something like:

    • First to do 10 Location based badges
    • First to do 10 automated badges (coded to curate automated follow/unfollow)
    • Best 3 new badge ideas win

... Stuff like that.

I have fully supported the idea of badges, and was glad when you announced their implementations. I am also glad for explaining all the process through this post. Looks great 😉

Hi there! This badge - @badge-202020 - is dedicated to the Czech Steemians. I believe that the Czech community should have its own badge as the content we usually create in our language is most definitely worth reading.

We just created the @SteemFlagRewards Community Moderator badge account (May go with SFR Flagger depending on the sentiment expressed by our community)

I was surprised to find that I was the first to claim the numbers associated with the loopback IP. = 127001



One of our community members, @saboin, made what I thought was a keen observation.


As for the automation aspect, I would like to automate the account to auto-follow once one of our moderators review and approve a flag reported in by our users..

I could also autofollow all users that have submitted flags in the past in our database for they are MANY! (Manually would take a LONG time)

Hope you like the idea. Let me know if there are any questions or issues.

Hi @asgarth or @peakd, I would like to get the @badge-646464 implemented.
It is an incentive for regular engagement and participation in our weekly chess tournaments here on Hive. I think it would be a nice add-on to our growing chess community!
There would be still a logo contest, so the current one is interim only.


Awesome, many thanks.
So far I can´t see it on the profile of the users, but maybe it takes time to be visible?

Hi @jarvie, can you help me figure out if I did something wrong? I can´t see the badge @badge-646464 on any users that the badge followed. Strange, with my other badge it works flawless.

OK how about now?

Your magic worked!!!

Hi @asgarth & @jarvie

I've just created an honor badge for long time Photofeed members (already followed 50 people - more will follow).

Name: Photofeed Hall of Fame

Cheers guys! :))

We are adding it

here is a request for approval


A badge for the members of the BEER community on Steem.

Later on we might add some more for the amount of BEER people can handle ;-)

I'm not sure why yours is not showing up correctly. Can you check the account name and description again.
Also description could say a bit more what qualifies someone for getting it.

changed and extended the description.

I build the account "as beeing a bad boy" not by editing it with SteemPeak but with Steemit - this might be a general error...

Please resubmit in a new comment when you get the badge to say the badge name. We added it but it didn't have the name... so i'm not sure what's working so i removed it. Let me know when it's ready in a new comment and i'll check back in tonight or tomorrow.

will do so

@steempeak sorry for commenting a comment not related to the topic. But, I'm very active promoting steem in twitter and I always share steempeak links there and promote your account in twitter. Can you share the updates from your twitter account as well ? There are a lot of active steemians there and most of them are sharing steemit links. It will be good if they will all learn about steempeak and share only your links. I hope to see you active there, at least share such posts. We have a big steem community active there.

Yes, I totally agree. I'll talk about this with @jarvie and we'll try to be more active on other socials as well :)

This is a really neat thing! I've just created one:

FullForce Radio Fan

I've been doing my steem powered metal/talk show for three years now, and there are some amazing dedicated listeners who are as much a part of the show as I am. I would love to have this become something I can give out while on air to the people who help contribute to how fun these shows are and to spread the word! 🖤💀🤘

Really 666? Really? Hahahaha
You crack me up

we should all be delighted one of the numbers of the beast has gone to such a completely harmless cult radio show!

love this one and tried it as well - but it was gone...


This is an automated curator for the #tr community. We try to help the Turkish community for years now. This account provides random upvotes for posts written in Turkish. If there aren't enough posts in #tr, the account votes for other randomly selected posts on Hive and stops if the power is below 80%.

I want to give badges to my followers (over 1900 accounts).

2nd try and now I add a !BEER to it....

here is a request for approval


A badge for the active members of the BEER community on Steem.

giving you guys a head up that creating communities can currently only happen when logged in with keychain. Can someone confirm this? @steempeak @jarvie

Correct. I really tried to make it work with steemconnect, but the creation of a community involve multiple steps and some transaction must be signed with the active key, so currently it's supported only with Keychain.

Hi would you please approve this badge?

  • @badge-420420: The Canna-Curate badge. This badge shows people that you are a supporter of cannabis on the block chain, and proud member of the Canna-Curate family.

Thank you!!

This is such a cool idea!!

Added... i'd suggest removing the word badge from the account. We call it a badge ourselves

Cannabis is legal is so many countries now, it's so nice to have easy access to the topics I love to blog about.

Hi @steempeak !

We are asking for your great consideration of


This badge will be used in the Nerday Community to help distinguished our community members that have verified with unique content to our fast growing community!

Please let me know how we can assist to get this approved!

Thank You

Hello Steempeak
I'm applying for a badge approval:

BADGE NAME: CO2 Compensator

This badge is useful to incentive and identify steemians that act ecologically and are reducing their CO2 footprint by using the CO2Fund on Steem.

By the way, the badge number is the CAS Registry Number of CO2 :)

Thank you. @retinox

Here's a badge that might come in handy ...

@badge-778899: Dramatic Badge for People who are (overly) dramatic.

Great badge!

I'm not sure i understand this one... Will people mute the badge anyway or is it something they want? We will later consider badges that may be a bit more negative but under different circumstances like perhaps totally automated and not given subjectively. Or maybe it's a badge that people request want if so let me know.

I do not foresee this badge having any kind of automation behind it. I already operate the bot that gives out DRAMA tokens (@dramatoken), and I don't think the two should be connected by code.

Instead, I would desire for this badge to be given when an author/account is the focus of extreme controversy.

But I fully expect that a non-zero amount of people would see the issue of this badge as disingenuous. So if it doesn't fit into this phase of badge design, I'd understand.

That is great idea! For community members that is very necessary! :)

Hi Steempeak team, Would you approve these badges?

Thanks :)

SCT badge - Please add qualifications for badge + add more followers. We will approve it just need those things done

TEAM KR - Approved

KR badge - approved but wouldn't it be "Korean Members" instead of Korea Members?

Thank you for approval! :)

  • KR badge : I have changed a name of KR badge to "Korean Community Member" as you said.

  • SCT badge : I will let them(SCT operation group) know to add more followers.

Remind me when they add a few more followers then we'll add it ... but at least you know it's pre-approved

Got it, thanks! And I have 1 more question. What is difference between pre-approval and approval? Is there any important things to keep or remember as a operator of badges?

Hi again @jarvie, Can SCT badge get approval for whitelist? It has added more followers now :)

Hi again Awesome Steempeak! Can SCT badge get approval for whitelist? It has added more followers now :)

the account name doesn't need to say "badge" it is a badge


So what do you want the badge to be called?
Who gets the badge?


Corresponding korean word?
It could be all in korean or korean / english.

But the name should reference who this group is. It's not SCT itself. It's likely SCT USERS?

And the definition should state who and how someone got the badge.

got it. sorry for inconvenience.

We have changed the profile of badge. Would you check it out once more? :) Thanks for you help @jarvie!

I have now added it... it's good.

However i find it hard to believe you only have 20ish SCT members. Let them know they can add more any time.

Thanks a lot jarvie. We goona make 200 followers ASAP with a notice post. :)

@badge-127911 - Needleworkmonday

The #needleworkmonday is an established tag for weekly posts of needlework, from knitting to weaving, from embroidery to crochet. There is a community account and weekly showcases of the most interesting posts.

The badge is meant for all steemians participating in the Needleworkmonday and for everyone else posting about needlework to make it easier finding people that share this hobby.

Request for approval!

GEEKZ community badge

For members of the GEEKZ community.


So is this a feature that can be used for a community kind of thing ?

It looks like some people are using it in conjunction with their community. But it's also an independent feature. It's pretty close to being described as "Achievements."

We just created @badge-184437 for all travel bloggers who have ever posted a blog through The accounts to follow were pulled fresh from our database & following will be automated in the future. The badge might be restricted to authors who have posted within the last 6 months in the future.

Hey there @steempeak! I like the idea of badges and created one too.

Put your badge name in the comments below.

Say why you think the badge will be useful

The badge follows users that have used at least one time the STEEM.CRAFT Minecraft dApp which involves a broadcast of specific operations to Steem. Users on Steempeak are able to identify a user that holds this badge and contact them to play STEEM.CRAFT together. Without a badge, it is not really that easy to know if a player uses STEEM.CRAFT or not from Steempeak itself. =)

Hi chaps - not sure I have to switch recovery account for the badge. I would like to get approval for @badge-776905 the Music Community on Steem - waiting for these communities since 2016, content shall build bridges between music genres.

Hello @steempeak. We, @steemillu are looking forward to get our badge approved.

Our badge is only for steemians who subscribed to our steem news"paper" it's mainly to show who is a subscriber and to give our subscribers something to show of. STEEMillu is a serious project and forms a great part of the german community. So everyone who has the "STEEMillu Abonnent" Badge is also a part of us. We want to show that of.

Please edit the account about section to write about the badge

Our badge is only for steemians who subscribed to our steem news"paper"

That should work well. Let me know when you've edited that description area.


Thank you for your quick reply.

And STEEM on.

Heyho. We are a yet rather small shop based on a steem-engine-token called STICK.

We offer a handful of items based on all of the projects regarding STEEM. We also have something called STICKStore prima (Something like a subscription, similar to Amazon Prime. But better. ;) ) We wanted to give our prima Members the prima Badge to have a visual representation that this steemian is indeed "prima" (prima means "great" in English by the way) So it would be wonderful to get approved.

  • badge-142897

I don't speak german can you tell me rough translation so i know if your description tells users how to obtain a badge

It basically states the prices of STICKStore prima - 7 STICK for 3 months and 22 STICK for 12 months. And that they get better prices when they have a STICKStore prima membership.

Hello I would like to reserve badge for PHC community Powerhousecreatives

Will contact with relevant details such as badge account soon.

Whenever you are ready just add a link to the account you have created. We will check new badges in this post

Thank you...


Same as phc hive, @jaynie (admin) is
adding our members now.

You guys do great things for STEEM


This is the Official Splinterlands Team Member badge! I've added most of the team, just confirming Steemit usernames in the discord for the rest. I did upload a photo, isn't showing on my end... can you view it? Thanks!

btw, this is Grapthar who made it.

Added... i would suggest removing BADGE from the name of the account because we call it a badge as well.

awesome, will do! thanks for setting it up!

Many thanks for the possibility of the free badge. We members of the guild "Legendary Dragons" from the game Splinterlands would love to have our badge activated. So far I have added all our members of the Main Guild and the members from our Wing will be added.


The badge will be rewarded to authors featured in the Daily #Traveldigest from Steemitworldmap! This way the badge will instantly show authors that provide HIGH QUALITY TRAVEL CONTENT. 😄


Awesome idea by the way! 👏

It has been added.

Awesome! Thanks!

Hello. 25.2. created a @godfish badge for the Czech community. We are a small community, but we support each other. Here's a comment about creating a badge

badge-202020 36 a day ago
Hi there! This badge - @badge-202020 - is dedicated to the Czech Steemians. I believe that the Czech community should have its own badge as the content we usually create in our language is most definitely worth reading.

@SteemPeak & @jarvie Here is my badge submission for your review.

New Gamers Badge & Qualification Rules.

A New Gamers Badge For All Video Gaming Content Creators!

If you would like to be added to the list of those given a Gamers Badge please Subscribe via the Badge's page so that you can be manually reviewed.

To qualify for a Gamers Badge at least 99% of what you post must be gaming content. In other words if you post on a variety of topics other than gaming related content you will not qualify for a Badge.

If your account does not qualify I suggest that you consider making an account exclusively devoted to gaming and request a Badge with that account.

Subscribe to a feed of all Gamers Badge recipient's posts with the Subscribe button on the Badge page found here:


The New Gamers Badge!

Cheers! & Happy Steeming!

I tried to search for it, but came up empty: Can I create my own community on steempeak yet? Or is this a feature still to come? Sorry if this was answered before, but I was looking for a button on my community page saying something like "create your community" ;)


If you need to make a Community.

Go here:

Click the blue button to create a community.


@jacobpeacock thanks! but for some reason that button is not available for me :( (I don't see it). Is there another way? Or perhaps it's because of my firefox browser?

@tobetada I am unsure if there is another way. Perhaps @jarvie or one of the @SteemPeak team members can help you find a solution.

Okay thanks!

You are welcome @tobetada.

It might be worth looking on the SteemPeak beta site and seeing if the button appears on it.
Here is a link to the Beta site:

I already tried it, no luck :/ it also doesn't seem to be my browser. But I'll contact some of the Steempeak devs, maybe they know. Thanks for your help!

Russian-speaking participants of STEEM - for the geographic community of the former USSR and people publishing also in Russian.

Added... i'd suggest removing the word badge from your account because we call it a badge wherever it's used so you don't need to call it a badge as well

Thank you - I do not quite understand you - should I change my account? After all, you yourself wrote in the instructions that you need to create an account "badge and plus 6 digits"

Hello @steempeak. Our badge is dedicated to all those who supported our skate community over this past 2 years and here is the link :

As more skaters are joining the blockchain, this badge will help our community and all skaters to monetize their steemskate posts cause most of the posts are Dtube/3speak videos who can not directly be posted in our hive. It will also bring a huge smile to all those who skate for @steemskate!

Thanks for this awesome initiative. I hope I did everything correct!

Added... i'd suggest removing the word badge from your account because we call it a badge wherever it's used so you don't need to call it a badge as well

Thank you @jarvie! Steempeak rules

Hello! You doing nice work!!
recently made a badge for Ukrainian Steem Community
@badge-101121 we support all the Russian speaking and Ukrainian speaking Steemians

Greetings Lords and Ladies,

we created @badge-421337 to unite all active SteemKnights players under a shared banner.

For Steem we fight!

Yours truly,

Hi there,

Applying for badge approval -


This badge would be exceptionally useful to identify those individuals that are official members of the Power House Creatives community server on discord.

Hi @steempeak people :)

I would like to submit my community badge for consideration.

Badge account name: @badge-825615

This badge will be used to reward the best and most active poets and story writers at The Ink Well creative writing community. We are a friendly writing community focusing exclusively on fiction, poetry and dramatic writing of all types. The Ink Well aims to inspire creativity on the steem blockchain by providing a place to share ideas, as well as helping people who want to take their writing to the next level through community educational resources. We also provide writing prompts and competitions to help motivate people to unlock the floodgates of their inner world, allowing the waters of inspiration to flow freely.

This badge will be useful as a reward for those who are already proving to be very active at the ink well community, and act as a motivator to get more people involved. I plan running either a competition, or writing exercise next week, where part of the reward for participating will be a badge on their steempeak profile.

I will also promote steempeak as platform of choice during this writers challenge.

The badge account is currently following everyone who has posted great writing on our community page, which comes to just over half of our current subscribed members.

Thanks for considering us at The Ink Well for a community badge.


Thanks @steempeak peeps.

I just noticed a badge pop up on my page as I use steempeak exclusively now, and then I checked some of the regular contributors to The Ink well and I can see they also have shiny new badges.

Thanks, I shall make a fun Sunday post tomorrow letting people in our community know that if they use steempeak, they will see their badges of merit :)

If there are any still available, I'd like to have badge-522020. Thanks!

I would like to add @badge-123090 for the Helpie-caster Community . A Community for Streamer aka Caster. Supported by @helpie Thanks alot

Presently there is no one added on the list of recipients... meaning the badge is not following anyone at the moment

Yeah you right we overread this rule.We will change this

Hello @steempeak. My name is @derekrichardson (derekrichardson#5459 on discord). I'm really loving all the new updates you guys have made!! I'd really like to get a badge for my Southern California Steem community members in @socalsteemit. If I am to late to be in the first 50 I will gladly pay for it. @badge-179815 is the one I created. The badge # matches our community # @hive-179815 I do believe I followed the directions correctly if not I do apologize and will gladly correct any errors. Thank you so much for all you do for everyone here on Steem. Keep up the great work!

We are discussing what we will do next. Stay tuned for updates

Hi, I want to congratulate you for the constant update and innovation of the @Steampeak interface, which is really my favorite fronted.

It is a shame for me that the promosion of creation of 50 badges is over, but I guess I'll wait for a next opportunity.

By the way, I was recently reviewing an update from another site that I visit a lot and I noticed something interesting, I decided to write a post about it, but in the course of writing I noticed that it was something that could also be useful for Steampeak and I included them in what I was proposing.

I would be very grateful if you could pay attention to the idea I propose at

Notice in advance that has to do specifically with the part in which I put this image:

ScreenShot of - Audience Geography
ScreenShot of - Audience Geography

Will we ever have the ability to create decentralised badges without Steempeak's direct control?

The public lists of users are completely decentralized already. In fact other interfaces could impliment them.

Besides being a future paid feature of steempeak presently we believe it's important to make sure there are some rules for the badges you're able to give others.

What aspect of decentralization are you most interested in?


Bug report: I am missing the "Comments" link on my profile page or drop-down menu on the desktop version of Steempeak.

Hi @steempeak team!
I would like to apply for a badge for the Vienna Community ("Wien" in German):
It is to connect Viennese Steemians (spread over the world) better with the Steem Universe, proudly tag all Vienna lovers & contributors to the Vienna Community and people who are interested in this city, and to stir interest & interactivity!

Hey @steempeak, a little late to the party here so understand if we've missed the boat here!

We'd love to create a few badges with our @yourtop3 contest and I've created @badge-123123 for now which is following the 35+ folks who've entered the contest and engaged so far since last year to get a badge - we'll add to that following list the more new entries we get 😃

Hopefully it's all done correctly but if not, let me know and will look in to it.

Hi we just created the swiss Hive badge. The goal is to enable swiss users to find each outhers and also to represent our country.Thank you for having a look :)
