Llama FAQs and Information

Sun Jan 27, 2013, 12:07 PM by 01309:icon01309:
● What exactly is a llama badge?
A llama badge is basically exactly as it sounds, it is a deviantART badge in the form of a llama.

● How many people can I give a llama badge to?
You can give out as many llama badges as you wish, but you can only give one per deviant.  
This means once you give a deviant a llama badge, you cannot give them a second one.

● How do I get llama badges?
The best way is to be an active member of deviantART.  The more you interact with others, the higher the chance you will receive a llama badge.  
You can also post comments here on our group page requesting llama badges as well or use llamatrade to buy llama badges.

● What is the purpose of llama badges?
They are just something fun for the deviantART community.  They are a way to thank someone for a favorite, comment, critique, pageview,
and whatever else you can imagine!  They are a wonderful way to opening up meeting new deviants and interacting with them.

● How do I give/return a llama
First, go to the deviants page that you wish to give a llama badge to.  On the top right corner of their profile page you will see a button labeled "Give."
Click this button and a drop down menu will appear and a menu option to give a llama will be listed.  Click "Give A Llama" and from there follow the pop-up box directions.

● If I give someone a llama badge, will I lose  the ones I have collected?
No.

● How do I hide my llama badge?
Go to your badge page and hover your mouse over your llama badge.  A small red X will appear in the top right corner.
Click the small red X and it will hide your badge.  This will not reset the amount of badges you have been sent or have received.

● How do I unhide my llama badge?
Go to your badge page.  Under "Other Badge" you will see your hidden llama badge.
Click the badge and drag and drop it into the area above where your visible badges are.

● My llama badges are gone, what do I do?
You may have accidentally hidden them, but they are not gone.  Please read How do I unhide my llama badge? to understand how to fix this.

● How can I choose which llama badge I want to display on my badge area?
If you have a certain type of llama badge and which to display a different llama badge form,
you must first have already reached the required amount  to unlock that badge version.  Go to your badge page and click on your llama badge.  
From there on the right side, it will display which badges you have acquired.  Click the name of the badge you want to display.

● Can I customize my llama badge?
Yes, to a certain extent.  You can purchase a bow tie or sun glasses for your llama badge.  Bowties cost 40:points: and sunglasses cost 80 :points:.

● DeviantART says I cannot send anymore llama badges, why?
Due to the use of bots to send out llama badges at an inhuman rate and the issues it caused to the dA servers, a limitation timer was placed
on how often you could send out a llama badge.  You've simply triggered the timer and will simply have to wait for five to fifteen minutes
before you can return to giving out llama badges.

● What is the maximum amount of llama badges you can have?
100,001.  This is the highest amount I have seen.

● What is the maximum amount of llama badges you can send?
Currently, there seems to be no limit.

● What are the ranks of the llama badge?
1 Llama Badge - (Llama)
10 Llama Badges - (Super Llama)
50 Llama Badges - (Albino Llama)
100 Llama Badges - (Super Albino Llama)
500 Llama Badges - (Ninja Llama)
1,000 Llama Badges - (Fancy Llama)
2,500 Llama Badges - (King Llama)
5,000 Llama Badges - (Spartan Llama)
7,500 Llama Badges - (Wizard Llama)
10,000 Llama Badges - (Golden Llama)
25,000 Llama Badges - (Runaway Llama)

Llamas given and received are separate tallies. Note that I have given a lot more than I have received. So have most members of this group. You can give anyone a llama for free. The only drawback is that if you give one to someone who will be buying them later, you will miss out, but there are not a lot of people buying them. Besides, you will only miss out one one point unless you hit one of the few who offers more than one point per llama on llamatrade

Llamas given and received are separate tallies. I boost my number received by giving out a lot and getting some back from people gave one to. I also give llamas back when I get one from somebody I have not gotten one from.

Wait, so... they just sort of show your status of how many you have? Cause I saw where it says "trade points for llamas". I guess idk why you would want to just buy a llama. Can you trade llamas for points? I still don't know how the point system works

They are free to give and receive. Occasionally, people buy them because they want them that much. They are not like cake badges that you must pay money to give.

The best option they have is to disable notifications. Go to settings, general. The last checkbox is "Disable message center notifications for badges."

You can hide the badge notifications and/or the badges themselves in your settings! (It'll still be quietly tallied, but you'll never know)

Why is there a limit how many Llamas someone can have? Right now i can't return a Llama since they supposedly have enough Llama-love as it is. 100k is not enough i reckon.

One little question:
So basically I can give how many Llamas I want, I'll still keep them and the other Deviant also receive it normally?
If no, if I give a Llama, I will lose it from the my badge collection? Sorry if ti sounds like a dumb question but please, I would appreciate some help :)

you can only give one llama per user but when you give they do not come out of the amount of llamas you have so you can give as many as you want
