I remember there was some way to include badges in the post text in a similar way can be, but I cannot find it in the help. How can this be done?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Where would that be useful? By the way: you could link to your badge page or just the general one. – Joachim Sauer Feb 5 '14 at 10:11
I've never seen this. Perhaps it was a screenshot? – Stijn Feb 5 '14 at 10:15
@JoachimSauer would be very useful on Meta, e.g. in this question – Tomas Feb 5 '14 at 10:19
There's a feature request for this, but it was never implemented from what I can see. – Stijn Feb 5 '14 at 10:20
@Stijn, YEEEEES, that was it!! :-) – Tomas Feb 5 '14 at 10:23

This is not official and might be taken down any moment, but I think you refer to this?

The image source is: so you just type whatever you want and choose badge color (g for Gold, s for Silver and b for Bronze) and you get the image. To put it inside a post just use:

<img src="" />

Nope! It was an actual sequence, like [tag:my tag]. I think it was something like [silver-badge:Sportsmanship] or alike. – Tomas Feb 5 '14 at 10:17
BTW is this something you just created? :) Because this is certainly not SE's, it has different font and little bit uglish blur :-) – Tomas Feb 5 '14 at 10:21
@Tomas no such thing, maybe you saw a feature request asking for this. And no, not my own, couldn't find the creator though. (too many Kevin's here) – Shadow Wizard Feb 5 '14 at 10:21
@Tomas yep, you most likely saw this. – Shadow Wizard Feb 5 '14 at 10:22
Wow that's a nice template :) Just made a badge of my name lol – puretppc Feb 8 '14 at 4:05
Thanks @nic never noticed the syntax changed! ;( – Shadow Wizard Mar 8 '15 at 7:36
