What is the process for User Verification?


#1

I keep noticing a [User Verification Not Started] red block appearing when I post. What’s the process for verification and how do I get it started?
Thanks.

I think you have to click the link in your ‘Welcome’ email to verify

All new users get the ‘verification not started’ flag by default.

I run a verification cycle every couple of weeks:

  • Users with names that match a user on the ST forum are flagged as ‘ST user pending verification’ and I send them a PM on the ST forum requesting that they verify they are the same person.
  • Users with different names do not need verification, therefore all flags are removed.

There is nobody using @qoheleth on ST as you are using @qoheleth.rms over there, so I’ll remove your flag right away… this would have happened automatically on the next cycle but no point waiting in your case.

Is there a way to check verification? Mine has been pending for a month or so.

I have a problem with the script I run on the ST forum, which I use to compare names… so I currently rely on ST forum users sending me a PM on the ST forum, as per the instructions as sign-up.

I see you have just send me said PM, and I will now verify your profile.
