As a security feature, Subscribers are required to confirm a project is a legitimate project by a quick reference to its description.
Production users are required to request project verification once they have registered their project. They nominate one subscriber who is also a funder of their production for this purpose.
When a project verification request is made, the relevant subscriber user(s) are notified and must verify the project before the platform contacts that project's contributors.
To verify a project
When a project requires verification the relevant verifier is notified by email. It is also listed in their Projects list as ‘Action Required’. To verify a project:
- Click the project which requires action
- Click the VERIFY or REJECT button as appropriate
