Verified users icon in Home?

what if the next PS Home client update would add Verified user icon for developers

 

 

perfect when it comes to dev accounts chating around? simular to the Mods' system but very limited. just show a icon on up of their usernames and thats it? look at the forums version they got it? why not Home?

:^/ That's an interesting idea. How would the verification work legitimatly? And how long do you suppose it would take for the script kiddies to be able to counterfeit it? They can already pretend to be moderators and Home Guides, for example.

That^

Plus labeling people is the same way the whole nazi/jew thing got started. People do not need barcodes, numbers, or icon labels to help one another or become well known as a developer or mod whatever the case may be.

If they wanted to be recognized in home, most don't believe it or not, all they would have to do is stop using substitute accounts and start using the accounts that belong to the company.

I see where Al is getting at but it's really not practical. The whole notion of the "verified user" in regards to social media applies mainly to high-profile, well-known people. It's an assurance that you were communicating on the site of the actual person (or their handler) and not some poser.

It's not possible to apply such a distinction to the general public, unless your only goal is to verify that there is indeed a living, breathing person using the account.

Personally, I don't think it's necessary. It would only add more complications to programming for Home and add to the clutter we are subjected to view while in world.

 

I'd rather Developers work on compatibility, speed, security and content of Home rather than what would be no more that "vanity" icons for Homesters.

 

It's not that the idea is bad - it isn't- but it's just not needed at this time.

The way you play the game is the way you live your life.

I'm not a fan of labels. I have all mine turned off on Home. I wish I could turn off the Plus icon on my PSN ID as well.

 

I know I have the service I don't really see the need to let others know I have it as well.

 

We should always have the option to turn labels off if we must have them.
