Classic web badges

My collection of over 70 88x31 badges, representing what I and this site use and stand for. If you have a badge you’d like me to add, just ask; it needs to have a format under 3 kb and avoid excessively flashy animations for me to consider it. See some tools I use for image optimization.

My badge

Use this to link to me!

My favicon, a white colon and semicolon on a black backround, next to the word Seirdy.

Note that this image’s URL is cache-busted. It will change any time I alter my badge, and is not hotlink-friendly. If you wish to hotlink, use one of these URLs:

Other info about this site

Smug panda fursona next to the text “Web 14”. Tildeverse. Webmentions supported. The word “IPv6” next to a green checkmark. Creative Commons BY-SA license. AGPL v3: Free Software. It stands for GNU Affero General Public Licence, version 3.

Notes on “About this site” badges

The W3C Valid HTML5 badge isn’t offered by the new Nu HTML Checker because HTML5 is about conformance, not validity. I use it anyways because my markup does fully conform and is well-formed polygot XHTML5, despite false-positives from validators; see my conformance statement.

I build Nginx, Conduit, Webmentiond, and other software for using LLVM in a Chimera Linux container, due to LLVM’s release-build-optimized sanitizers such as ControlFlowIntegrity.

Anonymize the web now! The dark green text “fucking webmaster” on a shell prompt in a terminal window. ISO-8601 now! YYYY-MM-DD. Keep the Web free. Say no to Web3. I support Net Neutrality. No <blink> tags! 3.0. The text “Campaign against frames!” next to a crossed-out webpage full of frames. I support right to repair. The text “Web Interoperability Pledge” next to a drawing of gears. A wasp next to the words “standards NOW!” Yellow ribbon: online friendship means something!

I included “Right to repair” in this section because I think that page-alteration (via adblockers, inspect-element, userstyles, etc.) counts as exercising one’s right to (software) repair. Free software, accessibility, and Right to Repair are interlinked. I previously microblogged in defense of content blocking from a right-to-repair perspective.

Ideological affinity, other

I might eventually move these to a separate page under the “About” section of my site.

No nazi. No fascism. No racism. Anime is gay as hell but I approve! The words “It's okay to give your bros some love” next to two anime boys kissing. The words “catboys meow!” next to a silhouette of a cat head flapping its ears. genderfluid flag. Trans rights now! ADHD. The words “autistic as fuck” flash over a pick background. The word “fuck” is censored. Defective by design. Eliminate DRM now! The characters “8 8 8 C 0” over the vertical strips of the digital free speech flag.

Things I use

Join the fediverse. Project Gutenberg. Internet Archive. search. Made with NeoVim. FFmpeg. The word “youtube-dl” flashes on a command prompt. Matrix. uBlock Origin now!

Friendly sites

These are some people/websites I think are cool! I might eventually move these to a separate page under the “About” section of my site.

Notes on “Friendly sites” badges

The Yesterweb is winding down its social activity after admin burnout, but it remains an important place during the Old Web revival of the late-2010s to early-2020s. I’m keeping the badge even if the rest of the shuts down (though it’ll probably stick around in archived form).


Close-up of Lain Iwakura’s eyes with a static filter. The text “This site is Miku-approved” next to Hatsune Miku. The words “graphic design is my passion” next to a bad drawing of a frog. Sarcasm implied. I heart horror.
