Verify contributions email (verification email)

Unregistered or anonymous users can make contributions to, they do this in the same way as registered users except that for each contribution they must click a verification link in an automated email we send in order for each contribution to go live.

This is important for several reasons:

  • So that we can be sure you’re a real person with a valid email address
  • So that we can attribute all contributions to at least an email address
  • So that we can contact you if necessary
  • So that we can block or ban abusive contributors

NOTE: Registered users don’t need to do this, their changes are made instantly without the need for the verification email.  Anyone can register for free.
