Badges are small icons displayed on a NaNoWriMo Wrimo's profile, as well as the NaNoWriMo dashboard. There are three types of badges: participation badges, writing badges, winner and partricipant badges, and personal achievement badges.

The website badges are not to be confused with NaNoWriMo Merit Badges, an item in the NaNoWriMo Store.

Participation Badges

Participation badges appeared on the NaNoWriMo dashboard in 2013. They were updated in 2014.

Current Participation Badges include:

Writing Badges

Writing badges appeared on the NaNoWriMo dashboard in 2013, with a refresh in 2014.

Current Writing Badges include:

Personal Achievement Badges

These badges differ from the participation and writing badges in that participants award themselves the badges. ALl badges are self-awarded on the honor system. Personal achievement badges were added to the NaNoWriMo website in 2015.

Current Personal Achievement Badges include:

Badge-Telltheworld.png Tell the World - earned by telling someone else about your novel-writing commitment
Badge-Participantpep.png Participant pep - earned by posting a pep talk to the forums
Badge-Nextgen.png Next Generation - earned by sharing NaNoWriMo and the Young Writers Program with an educator or young writer

Winner and Participant Badges

Winner and participant badges show which past years a Wrimo has participated in NaNoWriMo. A blue badge indicates participation in the given year, while a purple badges indicates the participant won NaNoWriMo that year.

Wrimos can add these badges to their profile by entering their novel info for that year and marking a win date for years won.

A halo appears over the years that the participant donated to NaNoWriMo. However, halos earned for MLing or forum moderation in previous years do not appear.
