Can you go to https://www.boardgamegeek.com/geekaccount/edit/geekbadge and then make all of the boxes blank?

Tried that. Just leaves a blank line. I found a thread from two years ago that says even using a transparent gif doesn't work.

Hoping someone has updated / added this feature.

Looks like the forum background color is f5f5ff, you could try setting all colors to that, but you would still have the gap.

Looks like it automatically puts in the border.

That's weird. Why would it give you the option for border colors if it's going to use something else.

Hmmm... Looks like you MUST set the border color to f5f5ff otherwise it sets it to black.

And now you need to set GeekBadge Overtext to "This is not the geekbadge you're looking for"

I am interested in knowing this too, although I don't think there is. I bought it not fully understanding how it worked and wish it was something that could be turned off and on.

Tahsin, I don't see your GeekBadge. Were you successful, or are you trying to get rid of the gap?

No, I wasn't successful. Apparently, when you purchase it, the space above your avatar is reserved for it, no matter what you do. I have set all colors associated with the badge to the color mentioned above. This makes it look like there is no badge but the space remains.

Hoping an Admin will chime in here.

You could make it the same color as your avatar and just extend your avatar, right?

I searched through the forums, and could only find suggestions for contacting an admin, such as Octavian, to ask about this. It does seem that it is either on or off, and cannot be switched on the fly by the user. As far as I can tell.

I'm hoping with the website re-design that will change.
