Topic: Trusted Members

https://i.postimg.cc/76gScFrx/trusted-2.png


A trusted member is someone who reaches 100 quality posts and has another trusted member vouch for him.
(Trusted Members with long responsible post histories on other forums may ask to be activated early)


A trusted member will have contributed to the community in a positive manner. They will have made quality posts and will have opened topics to engage the community. Junk one line posts will not be considered as quality posts. A candidate for Trusted Membership will have to have another trusted member vouch for him and must reveal his real identity to the Board Admin. This is to assure a Trustworthy Status can be assigned for the marketplace. Before Trusted membership is granted it will be discussed with other Trusted Members in the private forum. Successful candidates will earn the trusted certification and carry the highest trust level in our marketplace.


Trusted member status can be revoked at any time if the member over edits and damages the flow of topics, shows belligerent behavior toward other members, or does not honour commitments in the marketplace.


If the member has shown a trustworthy and courteous posting style they get the following perks.


1. User Name displays in green
2. Can Edit Custom Title under Avatar
3. Receives a Trusted Member Badge
4. Has access to the private trusted member forum.
5. Gets unlimited edit time in the Trusted Member forum.
6. Unlimited listings in our marketplace (non trusted max 3 per day)
7. Trusted Members will receive special deals from Service Representatives
8. Trusted Members are Board Certified to be Reputable Sellers in the DN.ca Marketplace.
9. Only Trusted Members may request a change to their User Name, all other members must reregister.


Trusted Members are well known on dn.ca and are certified trustworthy in our marketplace.
(Trusted Members cannot be anonymous and must identify themselves to Board Admin)


PS. You cannot post 100 junk posts, you must have contributed Topics and Quality responses.




The following can get you trusted membership before 100 posts.

- Established member at another domaining forum
- Field Rep for a service company like WHC.ca etc.
- Industry Insider etc.



Email: admin@dn.ca if you have reached 100+ posts and you think you qualify for Trusted Membership.

You have to apply for Trusted Member Status at 100 posts to: admin@dn.ca
Applicants will be discussed in the Hidden Trusted Member Forum and if approved will gain full trusted member access, assuming someone can vouch for you.

Re: Trusted Members

In the new year I will be working with our Representatives to target specials at our Trusted user base.

Anyone who posts 100 quality posts can have Trusted Member activated to take advantage of the upcoming deals.

Remember you have to email admin@dn.ca to claim trusted member, it is not automatic because you must have contributed to the forum in a positive manner and shown you are trustworthy to claim this title.

Re: Trusted Members

Please note Moderators automatically get Trusted Member status

Re: Trusted Members

I have been thinking about the Trusted Member Forum and to gain Trusted Member status you cannot be anonymous. A Board Leader or another trusted member must be able to vouch for your or you must be a trusted industry insider.

A trusted industry insider can ask to be activated at any time, a new domainer must have at least 100 posts, they must show to be true to their word with their transactions. Remember we are vouching for you in the Buy & Sell section so if any funny business occurs you will lose Trusted Member Status and your reputation in the marketplace will suffer.

The Buy & Sell section is mostly self moderated and on the honour system, but anyone wanting extra credibility should be seeking out the Trusted Member status. Trusted Member means that doing business with that individual is someone that is DN certified and trusted by his peers.

Re: Trusted Members

We now have a Trusted Member badge so it no longer necessary to say Trusted Member under the users avatar.


Effective immediately:

Moderators and Trusted Members can change their Custom User Title in the Settings at the top of the forum.


That is the description under your Avatar Image.
(Mine says Board Admin)


Post #1 has been updated.



PS. The Trusted Badge is clickable to take you back to the Trusted Discussion.

Re: Trusted Members

So I could request a name change when I reach 100 posts?

No you can request Trusted Member status at 100 posts and only then can you request a name change.

Keep it up though, you are well on the way.

Ideally everyone would be but as we grow I cannot give this status out to everyone.
It is meant for people we are sure will conduct themselves in a professional manner in our marketplace.

If someone joins who is totally anonymous and posts 100 four word posts they will never get trusted member status.

Ideally we have to be able to vouch for these people and assure they are legitimate when they conduct business here. If someone buys a domain from another member without that status then it is a gamble because technically nobody has vouched for that member, we may not know who they are, or they could just be some random person that joined.
