Maybe a green tick? Sadly, I'm not a trusted user, maybe us untrusted users can have a Pirate logo Cry


Edit: oh thank you - my coffee drinking habits are now trusted :)





Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.
Rural Broadband RBI installer for Ultimate Broadband and Full Flavour

As you can see we have a checkmark next to the "Trusted" now... I will be contacting Adam J who provided the idea. I will have to arrange something for redjungle who provided the actual image.

Thanks everyone for your suggestions!

The ticks looks cool :)

If you listen to their weekly podcast, you'll of course know that there's a hell of a lot of work and thought gone on behind the scenes of their reputation 'ecosystem'. But yes, it certainly works well for them.


I do get their podcast and find it good value.  Yeah, that have some really nice complexities going on.  It makes for an interesting benchmark.

So out of interest what criteria is needed? Is it just be spotted saying something useful?

It's about "trust". Helping users all around, following the FUG helps build the "trust", but a lot of this means we know the user a bit better than others and can back the poster on his/her opinion or advice (even if we don't agree with it).

For example is much easier for someone we met face to face before to get a "trusted" status than someone new on the site (unless it is someone we already know from somewhere else).
