Thanks for following up, @Arsineh. I now see that the stars are gray rather than yellow. The announcement implied they'd be yellow, and seeing 6 gray stars by my name I assumed I still had to watch the yellows grow. Since I'm already evidently at Ambassador level, though, I'll simply be happy to continue contributing as I'm able. I'll submit the requests for the other badges (though I don't see that's possible with Photogenic :).
@Cleversheet That is a valid assumption and likely gave others the same impression. I appreciate you pointing that out. I've updated the key above to reflect the grey stars. Thanks again! As for the Photogenic badge this will be automatically issued for members who upload a new badge. If you already had a profile photo before the badge became available you can trigger it by logging out and back in. I will keep an eye on your account to be sure it's issued next time you log in.
I'm concerned about the fame and loss of anonymity that being a smartsheet Champion could present: Lines of people waiting for autographs. Crowds outside my door. People pestering my relatives with questions about obscure function calls. It's bad enough as it is!
🤣 🤣 🤣 @mattc Heavy is the head that wears the crown. I wonder what our Champions would say.
@Arsineh, you may already know that the badge request page doesn't acknowledge submittal or go to a succeeding page. When I tapped SendRequest a second time I saw the "already submitted" note at the bottom.
@Cleversheet When you request a badge, a small dialog box pops up for a few seconds in the bottom left corner of your screen indicating that the badge has been requested.
Thanks, @Paul Newcome. It was probably there the first time I submitted but I missed. I hope @Arsineh and team will take note that a more prominent solution might still be helpful.
On our radar. Thanks for sharing this.
@Arsineh : thanks a lot!
Feeling the same way. Things have been crazy for what feels like the last year, but I am excited about becoming more active in the community.
If my answer helped you, please be sure to mark it as Accepted to help future learners locate the information.
This is pretty cool! It's a great way to encourage the community. The community has a wealth of knowledge for unusual use cases. The next time someone has that usecase, this community can often have that information already done or create it for the next!

I am also looking for the photogenic badge as I already had a profile picture up before the badge existed. I am going to try and logout and log back in to see if I get the badge :)
Hi Ipshita - Wanted to check in and see if you had an opportunity to log out and back in to trigger your photogenic badge. I want to be sure you receive your badge - so please let me know if it's not coming through. Thanks.
Hi @Arsineh ,
Yes I tried to log out and log back in but nope, I didn't receive the badge. Thanks for checking though :)
