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