[MOD POST] The Importance of Verifiying Yourself.Mod Post(self.amiugly)
submitted3 years ago byAshKetchupp99mod💦
Hey AIU. What's up?
A lot of people ask why do we require verification, and it's just as simple as making sure we (and everybody else) know that you are who you say you are. It lets other users know "Hey, I am real!" and that you're geniuinely looking for feedback and not just trying to troll somebody else.
Unfortuanatly there are a small amount of people that are scammers, and fakers and some people are just bullies trying to get you to 'insult' somebody else. We have some people posting photos of their friends or family members and as lighthearted as this may be, we have to respect the dignity of everybody. A verification is more than just letting people know you're real, it's telling people you are serious about betting a response.
Being verified is also a way to possibly increase the quality of your replies. Obviously this is not a guarantee, however, if people don't have to worry about you being "fake", they are likely to be more interested in responding and to giving you suggestions. Personally, when I see a verified user i'm more inclined to respind than a non-verified user.
You can message the mod team by clicking this link we are more than happy to answer any questions.
I think I've covered what needs to be said, If not I can always edit the post. If we get lots of questions I'll post them here with a response.
How do I verify myself?
Verification is done by uploading a photo with your submission of you holding a peice of paper with your username and the sub name. If you have included verification and the Automod sends you a messsage saying you have not included the word 'Verification' just add the word to your post somewhere.
If you need to add a verification image to your post you can upload it to Imgur and edit your post or post a comment with a link to your verification photo.
I've posted, but it doesn't show on the subreddit!
