This is an excellent add-on, which is really not surprising when you see @Ozzy47
involved in something. Every add-on made or taken over tends to be a 5 star deal.
However, to be honest, there are just a minor handful that are not user friendly for the end users or the admins - a very few, but it still exists. For the most part, it's a matter of perception and likely your user base.
When it comes to the verification badge the lack of a moderation notice is off putting to me, as well, even though I use the add-on because as said earlier: i love it. If you're working with a busy community, it's really hard to find the time to remember "Oh let me click this out of the way location and see if anyone asked to be verified!" You would expect to see it, like any other notice that needs intervention, to appear in the admin bar.
I'm no programmer, so I have no idea how hard that would be to accomplish and I am pretty sure that with the large portfolio, ongoing projects and perhaps new projects on the horizon that @Ozzy47
is very busy and time is an asset we never have enough of.
Not that this will drive his desire or intention to add the feature to the add-on, but we're talking about someone's time maybe a small donation or something to account for a few hours (?) of code change is warranted? I mean the add-on was only $20.00, it's not like Ozzy is racking us through the coals with the costs of his add-ons. What I would say and again this is only my opinion which likely is not worth a lot, but I wouldn't like someone coming at me in the way some of these posts seem to be directed. It's easy to say what we'd LIKE to see in an add-on, but when we're not the one programming it -- maybe be kind to the person that is?
So before I get hardcore flamed 🔥 for this post.... I hope everyone has a safe, enjoyable Holiday Season and New Year filled with new adventures, success and good health.
