Every new Creative to WNW starts as a non-vetted member. These non-vetted members enjoy the same benefits as the rest of our Creatives: they can still be discovered, followed, and hired. The main differences is there is no Verified Badge next to their name.
Our Membership Board, which is comprised of over 300 of our top members, is roving and periodically auditing our community to determine who should make it to the verified level. If a plurality of the Board determines the Creative has what it takes they will be given the Verified Badge on their profile.
