How to use the W3F registrar page
This tutorial provides instructions on how to complete the automated judgement process for your on-chain identity through the W3F Registrar page. The process involves completing challenges for your email, Twitter, and Matrix (Element) fields. The tutorial explains how to verify each field and how to check the verification status of each field. The tutorial also explains what to do if you have filled out fields other than email, Twitter, and Matrix, as these require manual verification. The tutorial provides step-by-step instructions for verifying each field, including sending a direct message on Twitter and opening a private chat with the registrar bot on Matrix.
If you requested judgement for your on-chain identity through the Web3 Foundation Registrar you’ll need to follow some automated steps to complete the judgement process.
NOTE: The automated process supports only the email, twitter and riot name fields in the on-chain identity. If you filled out any other fields, you’ll need to email email@example.com to complete the verification of these fields manually.
How to complete the automated judgement process
After you’ve requested judgement for your on-chain identity go to the W3F Registrar page.
Select Polkadot or Kusama on the left, depending on whether you requested judgement for a Polkadot or Kusama account.
Enter the address of the account you requested judgement for in the text field.
The page will populate with the challenge and verification status for each field, like in the example below. The statuses update automatically, there’s no need to refresh the page.
As you complete each challenge the status will change from “unverified” to “verified”. Once all challenges have been completed, including any manual ones, after a few minutes you’ll see the green checkmark next to your on-chain identity.
Send just the challenge to firstname.lastname@example.org. There’s no need to enter an email subject.
You will receive a response with a new challenge.
Copy just the challenge and paste it in the text field that will have replaced the registrar email.
