filled the info and did the “Send Verification Message”
Only if you bring candy and have a verified website. Looks like I need both.
  • Verified Members get a Verified Location Field under the Avatar on the posting screen.
  • Verified Members get a Verified Website Field under the Avatar on the posting screen.

This is new as of this morning.

Verified Members are asked not to change this once it's verified.
I just wanted verified members to know that your profile is not visible to google nor guests.
In fact the board is heavily restricted to guests and crawlers, they also cannot see the Boardroom, Showroom, Hushed Topics and they cannot use search.

I also have flood control enabled for regular members to PM, spam etc is severely limited until you achieve Verification Status.

This is all done to assure we maintain privacy in our Community.

I will be looking at all aspects of security in the next few days to make sure everything is properly addressed.
Xenforo software is pretty much on top of all of this and I have turned all the privacy settings so nothing is harvested from the profiles.

I need to clarify something​

You can get Verified Status as an individual as well.

For a business filling in the Personal Name is optional, you can fill in first name, first name last name, first name last initial or nothing at all. As long as you meet all the Business criteria the personal name can be left out.

However, there is a way to get verified without a business...

1. You must fill out First & Last Name
2. You need to use a landing page with a means to contact you as a website.
3. Or you can use your profile link to your store there. Since Dan can contact you that does qualify.

So if you don't have a business website you can use your lander on Dan but it has to have a store name so you cannot be incognito on or a similar service.
Lots of updates to the list in post #1

Members please keep in mind that Verified Member Status is free for a LIMITED TIME and the Free Status may be removed at any time.

Get yours now to assure your free status and keep the list of Verified Perks is growing every day.

I am going to keep a running tab here as I add new features.

Today I added a Topic Count into each post and Member Profiles.

So now it Counts Topics, Posts & Likes

See to the left here for an example.
New changes and upgrades are coming to Verified for the new year.

Here are some of the changes we are thinking about for 2023...

1. Boardroom Access for verified members that have at least 25 topics, and 100 quality posts .
2. Verified Members must request Boardroom access and will be voted on by current members once we have 13 voting members. (one to break a tie)
3. The Bordroom Topics will be of the most sensitive nature and also contain some deleted topics that cannot be shown on the main board.
4. We will share insider information among only the most elite domainers.
5. Sponsors will offer special pricing to members with Boardroom access and will discuss future specials there.
6. New policies will be discussed in the Boardroom.
7. Verified Members will be able to delete other members posts in their For Sale topics.

More information to follow soon.
Thank you Frank for all the work you have done with helping to activate the .CA community. I hope I can be a help moving forward.
