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
@stux A fine idea, but... Not quite. Fediverse has two main tiers: instance owners and members. The power of sysops pretty much ensures they are “higher in ranks” than others, regardless.
