Junkie Badges or tags are used on the forum at scottsigler.com. They can be earned in two methods for two reasons: 1) People who have had significant contributions to furthering the Sigler ascension to world domination and 2) to designate junkies whose real life names have been used in a Sigler story.
- OJ - Original Junkie
- This special badge was only awarded to Junkies who registered on scottsigler.com prior to the print release of Infected, Scott's first hardcover novel.
- This is the end-all be-all of titles that a Junkie could take on. This title is gained with a supreme amount of respect from and hard work for Sigler.
- This term is applied to special members of the junkie community who have served as consultants on Sigler's works.
- This term is applied to junkies who have supported Scott Sigler and his work in the past, showing extraordinary dedication and towards the Sigler Ascension. This title is bestowed with a supreme amount of respect in recognition of the hard work that they have shown in past.
- KISS - Killed In Service to Sigler
- This one's fairly self explanatory. If you're name is used as a character who dies in a Sigler story, you get a KISS badge. Any junkie who is lucky enough to be martyred to the cause gets this most sought after badge of honor. Robin Hudson, from the novel Nocturnal is a perfect example.
- MC - Major Character
- This badge is reserved for junkies whose names are used central characters within a Sigler story. Bryan Clausner, from the book Nocturnal is an example.
- HM - Honorable Mention
- Junkies whose names are used as part of the supporting cast within a Sigler story. This is often a judgment call and depending on the lifecycle of a story, it is possible to be elevated from a HM to a MC or KISS.
- CA - Cameo Appearance
- Junkies whose names are mentioned one or two times within the story but may not be central to the main storyline.
- Ø - Null Sign
- A Kovac's unique badge; it also has strong associations with Dark Øverlord Media.
- Scott Sigler's unique badge
