Users with the “Verified Channel” mark represent a trusted source of content. The verification process or criteria depends on a per-project basis and should be handled by the site’s administrator.
“Verified channels” display a checkmark icon to the right of the channel name, and “Verified” appears in a popup if you point your cursor at it.
In addition to having the verification badge applied to their profile/channel, verified users can also be allowed more freedom when it comes to publishing videos.
For example, users which own a “verified channel” can have their submissions automatically approved even if PHP Melody is configured to require manual approval of all user submitted content.
This feature was introduced in PHP Melody v2.6 and is part of the “Social Module”.
