Nearly 500 of our members are now “verified”, helping create an online community that we can trust.
What is Verification?
“Verified” members are those who the SE23.life team has have met in real life.
There is no fee for verification, and it’s entirely optional.
Being verified unlocks some benefits and helps add credibility to your posts.
In the first few years of the forum, @Pauline did an amazing job verifying hundreds of SE23.life members in person, while she ran Sugar Mountain. @No41Coffee has verified plenty of people in Honor Oak and continue to do so.
Given recent events, in-person meetings often happen online instead, so we’d like to propose a new way to get verified:
Proposal: Electronic Verification
Record a short video, filmed in a well-known Forest Hill / Honor Oak location (i.e. Honor Oak Park / London Road / Stanstead Road), in which you state your forum username. “I am ‘username’ and this is me at x location”
- email the video to firstname.lastname@example.org
- tweet it to @SE23life or
- send it via Facebook Messenger to our SE23.life Page.
We’ll then mark your profile as verified.
Videos would not be shared outside the team.
We’ll store a screenshot from the video in order to ensure we only verify one account per person.
- Yes, I’d like get verified in this way
- This is not for me
- I’d like to get verified, but some other way (suggestions welcome)
- Other (suggestions below)
