Sometimes you might get some swag....... maybe.

I've gotten swag nearly every few years, give or take a couple of years. Good thing, since the dog took off with the official FW ball and we haven't seen it since. The pen still works...

My cat liked the FW ball, only she knows where it is today

A FW package arrived in todays mail

My cat thought it might be another ball, but it was only a tshirt

Also, are there any "flag" badges?

Independence Day badge is pretty flag-like if you mean a stars & stripes kinda badge.

just curious, why?

When was the ball??? My FW pen ran out of ink pretty quickly. Maybe it was 'used'? Piranha is still my fave. Any site can send pens & t-shirts but piranhas?

A color change can happen at any time

I feel light red today


GMY, some folks like to customize which 5 badges show whenever they post. Right now many folks are displaying Black Friday related badges in honor of the "season," and these badges happen to be designed in mostly black and white. However, as LORENW noted, you can pick whatever color scheme you desire (e.g., all brown, all grey, all yellow, alternating colors), or just the badges you like the most or are most proud of, etc. To customize your badges, click on your avatar or the "___ more" badges link. In the window that pops up, to the right of the list of all achievements that you have ever earned is an area called "Favorite Achievements" (see attachment) where you can drag up to 5 earned badges/not greyed out to control what is displayed with your avatar when you post in the forums.

I'm not sure what you mean by "flag badges," but if you click on " view all possible achievements " at the bottom of that same pop up window, you can see a list of all badges ever created/awarded by FW and a description of each, including expired badges. It is also easier to tell what the badge images actually are since the images are larger: Maybe the BF megaphone looks like a flag or maybe you mean the independence day badge? Alternately, if you are in a thread and see another poster has a badge that want to know about, just hover over it to see the badge's name (if you then decide you need a full description, you can click their avatar/more badges link to access the view all possible achievements link with full descriptions.

@ martin628 and LORENW: I love my FW ball too! I can't find mine either but live alone and don't have any pets.

I never got the FW piranha but I did just mind my ball (think I got that a couple of years ago). My FW pens last about as long as any other gel pen... you may have gotten a lemon.

Maybe cause I only use the pen to sign checks. Never got a Piranha, and am almost positive nothing has bitten me recently from inside a box, except that one time and it probably wasn't the swag...

The black and white badges were from the early days when the internet was in monochrome. Technicolor came later in the 50s and 60s..
