Title: UPDATE: Verified Badges (1/7/2016)
Post by: Ninth Parallel on January 07, 2016, 05:23:09 pm
Hello all! We've introduced higher-level Verification here on the forums over the past night. The purpose of this feature is to give you the power to know whether or not the person you're talking to is who they say they are. We'll constantly be verifying notable artists, record labels, and industry contacts on an ongoing basis.

The Verification symbol will appear next to a person's username, currently in four places: on the "Users Online" list at the bottom of the main board page, in threads whenever a notable account posts or replies, on a notable person's profile, and in the Members list. The symbol looks like this: (http://theproducersforum.com/Themes/flatline/images/verified.png)

If you believe you are qualified for verification, send a message to @the_pro_fo (https://twitter.com/the_pro_fo) (Twitter) and we'll see what we can do!

If you have any questions or want to clear up any confusion, feel free to reply to this thread.
- Rishi

Good idea, so at what point can we claim this badge ? Once have an official release ? Or a signficant amount of releases ?...

So to clarify, this verification system is just so that we can recognize whether or not a person claiming to be [insert famous producer here] is actually who they say they are, and not just somebody who has taken that name on the forum for the sake of owning it?

That's cool. Nobody would pretend to be me, so I'm not entirely sure I need it. Also, I'm not famous... feels good. :)

This is probably the wrong spot to post this but I didn't see the appropriate thread. I've noticed some people have embeded soundcloud tracks as their signature but when I try, it seems to just put the code in there and not actually embed the track where you can just click and listen.

Sorry again if this is out of place.

Thanks!

You need to do it like this (but remove all spaces first)

[ soundcloud ] insert direct link to the track [/ soundcloud ]

you're pretty well known and that comes from another artist almost entirely disconnected from the style of music you do, imo dudes like you should definitely be verified :P this is definitely a difficult thing to quantify
