Can I have a badge for being badgeless?

It has just occurred to me. Why are they called badges and not pins?

@Gordon Shumway, and others, if you think you have earned a badge, please go here,

Did You Meet a Badge Requirement

Please post a reply to that topic thread requesting the badge(s) you believe you have earned. Provide a link to the post(s) that you believe qualifies, state which badge for that post. A post and/or video can only be used for one badge. Remember, you can only request a badge for yourself. 

Another option is to PM me with the same information.

For a list of badges and their requirements, keeping in mind the full face requirement for video related badges, please click here

Description and Requirements of Individual Badges

There is also general badge information, here,

General Badge Information

I look forward to updating your profile with the badges you have earned.

As for them being called "badges" and not "pins". That is what they were called when this forum was started. Hey, think of them as badges of courage. It is hard for a lot of us to put ourselves out there in a video. I think badges is appropriate, myself.

I was joking. A badgeless badge would be a paradox.

I asked about badges and pins because in Britain there's a belief that the word badge doesn't exist in American English.
