@Romaq Yeah, I'm really not sure how that works here. The info I see says to just add the link to my website and then add that to my profile, which I did, but aside from the website itself having a checkmark... I'm not sure how I get one for my profile.
@AutismFather I'm not terribly sure myself, I just know it's a "thing." I'm heading home early, so I can take a look and victimize myself, same as I abuse my own alts on my own server just to know how it works. One of the reasons #MinecraftBedrock annoys the hell out of me because it's so difficult to do alt testing. But I digress... I'll get home and see how to do.
Obviously, I welcome anyone else jumping in to help @AutismFather maintain identity to head off future issues by bad actors.
@trinsec @AutismFather I think that's the one that matters on Mastodon. I also think anyone, "verified or not" can put /:/verified/:/ in their handle, essentially making THAT pointless. But you are the only one who can use that link to the website you control, so my understanding is that is the one that matters.
@trinsec @AutismFather I would also note people like @freemo and some other inimitable people I follow are as "verified" as one can get in this venue, but they don't use "verified" in their handle. They don't need it. And that's how I think of you. But I'm still happy to see you making use of the web link verification for future incident proofing, as much as one can on this platform.
Verified in the handle is intended to be a running joke, its not real in any sense.
That said if you truly want to be "verified" use keyoxide or keybase. Check out my profile for an example of both. The green highlighting and check mark are somewhat akin to verification and the process "proves" your identity against your other online identities.
