How do I add personal achievement badges?

Personal achievement badges are badges that can be self-awarded. For example, if you identify as a “Planner” or a “Pantser,” you can assign yourself the corresponding badge.

These differ from participation and writing badges in that they are not system awarded — it’s up to you to “claim” the personal achievement badges you feel you’ve earned (this is on the honor system, of course)!

To add personal achievement badges:

  1. Go to the new “My Badges” tab, located under “My NaNoWriMo.”
  2. Check the box next to the badge you’ve earned.
  3. Hit “Update.”
  4. Check your dashboard for your new badge(s)!
