Vouch for information in users profile

  • thomasfbg


    I am creating a community for individuals with a certain education. I will not require that users attach there formal degree in order to create an account. However I still would like to ensure that users has the education required. I’ve found the Buddypress Verified Member plugin. That would be a great way to highlight that we have the knowledge that users has the right level of education. Although that seem to require admins to make the decision as to whether or not the users has the taken the education. Instead I would like to transfer the decision to the community. I envision the following.

    After successful registration the users is presented with a page where a number on non-verified members are presented with name and profile image. The user is presented with the question:

    Do you know any of these people and can you vouch for that they have taken the education?

    To create som intrinsic motivation users earn credits for helping out identifying community members that has taken the educations. Ideally it also motivates users to upload a profile image in to get recognition by others and get the verified badge.

    The function is similar to the Buddypress Member Review. It is also similar to the function that presents users with “perhaps you know” and where they can decide to start follow users.

    Does anyone know of existing plugins I can use or plugins that I could tweak?

    You can do this sort of thing using TruAnon digital identity. Members confirm controlling ownership over their digital properties, this can include certificates or other data curated on their behalf. Members control how they share confirmed answers and information and this creates a more legitimate, trusted environment.
