I see how every speedrun has a badge but I don't know how they get these badges do they get them from a certain site or what?

Can you be more specific about what are those badges and where do you see them?
Are you by any chance talking about the trophy icons you get for being in 3rd-1st places?

No i mean the custom badges you get beside your name when you donate.

I know that I'm say where do you find the badges to put there!

Well, YOU have a donation badge. How did you get it?
I assume everyone just make their own icon.

Yeah but i was just asking if people draw there own or get from somewhere or what? this one i got from a site kindof. And also i some people i see with the same badge that's why I'm guessing they all get it from somewhere.

I think you're overthinking this a bit. They're just pictures, people choose a picture they like and use it. There isn't like a specific place to get speedrun.com donator icons specifically.

Unless your talking about the shields (like the one Shiken has). Those are indicators for site staff - the gold A badges are the site admins, the silver F ones are for site full mods and the bronze C ones are for site content mods.

I know about the shields icon but i see lots of people with the same sword icon and stuff.

You mean moderation icons? (Red sword for super mod, green sword die regular mod). Those show up on users who are moderators for an LB and it only shows up for the users on that specific board.

That’s the best I got, without a picture or something I’m in the dark as to what you’re talking about.

Oh i didn't know that!.oh and I know This is totally off subject but do you really live in Antarctica or is that just a joke or something?

No one lives in Antarctica. It has no permanent population or settlements, just scientific bases that are staffed for (at most) a few months at a time when it's summer in the Southern Hemisphere.

I know I researched on it after I said that it has 1000 at winter and 4000 at summer but it said he lived in Antarctica it also said 20-30 other people lived in Antarctica.
