This dev badge is physically badge or only for the dev profile ? Still confused because I received mail on Nov 10 in that mail written
A shipment from order is on the way and didn't receive anything btw Today I checked again the same mail on the view ur order and saw the order is complete btw I got the badge on 10 November itself. And why they take the address and why there is 256$ πŸ€” while billing if it's not a physical product and yes I know after applying the code provided it comes to 0$ .... Please clarify πŸ€”

My t-shirt is on its way but I cannot get the discount code for the badge, as the hacktoberfest.digitalocean.com/profile link redirects back to hacktoberfest.digitalocean.com now that the event has ended. I would like to add this year's badge to my collection. Any help is appreciated.

I have followed all the steps and I have yet to receive my badge.

The /profile route is no longer functional as of this date, so I cannot go back. Anyone knows a workaround?
