I like to clarify why we don’t have a verification system like the #birdsite with the blue thingy next to your name.

On the #fediverse or at least #Mastodon we all are equal. No person is ‘higher in ranks’ or better than everyone else, our point is exactly the opposite. We want equality right?

We have plenty of methods to prove who you are on other platforms, we don’t need a badge for that 😉 Ofcourse you can use it however you like but this would be the reason, I’ll hope you’ll understand

@Agnostic_Indian @stux If you've logged in from mstdn.social, adding :verified: after your username will give you a verified tick. It's an emoji for birdsite users suffering from their own sense of insecurity. Some also seem to be using it for "fun".

Similarly, adding :unverified: after your username will give you a cross symbol. The platform is purely open source. You're free to add what you want.
