hobbyDB users might have Badges on their Showcase. One of these is the hobbyDB owner Badge which is given to members that also invested in the company (more here)  -




All other Badges are reserved for Squad member (please join!).



Squad Member Level


Here are the five different Squad levels  -




Here are the Pin Master Equivalents (some Advisory Board members are also the equivalent to a Coordinator) -




And the Shot Glass Curator  -




There are also the Official Account (a Collectible Brand that wants to ensure its data is correct, the Team Member account (those are the folks that should be able to help you with technical problems) and the Member of the Advisory Council  -

Price Points Added


These get more exciting after 10,000 (and we are pleased to soon hand out the first 100,000 in the next few weeks!)  -

Various Honors


Many other sites have joined us and sometimes key members of those sites are going to be honored with a specific Badge.  Early Supporters were early and enthusiastic users of hobbyDB (so joined 2014/2015).  Diecastlovers joined in February 2015 and The Toy Collector App in June 2020 -



From time-to-time we have events like the Price Squad Record Day or the Member of the Month  -




We also give out the Guinea Pig Badge (for folks that help us a lot at testing), the Bug Finder Badge (chaps that are just very good at finding our mistakes and help us to correct those) and Guest Blog Authors (esteemed members that share their knowledge with the others) -


And lastly, we just give our a fun award badge and those are often but not always self-explanatory   -
