Bill Riedy

I consider myself a lazy administrator, if I have to do something more than 5 times I'll look for a way to do it automatically. I use whatever tools are at my disposal and in the past I've used: batch, basic, vbscript, ksh/bash on *nix, winbatch, gnuwin32 ports of *nix tools, VBA (and older style macros before that). Sometimes I've even used scripts to write scripts for me, and I'll make some minor edits to generated script before using it.

What is a Verified User?

Verified users have completed most of their profile (progress bar shows at least 75%). Specifically:

  • They have provide a Display Name that reflects their legal name (e.g., “Don J,” “Don Jones,” or something similar)
  • The Display Name may include a nickname, like Don Jones (concentratedDon) if they’re well-known in the community by that nickname
  • They have provided their given name and surname
  • They have provided URLs to social profiles (Twitter, GitHub, etc) – usually 2+
  • They have uploaded a profile photo that clearly shows their face

If you are interested in verifying your profile, we suggest editing it first to make sure it’s complete. That will prevent a rejection, which lowers your site “score.” Read more about our Verified Profile program.
