[MAY, 2022]: Verification Plugin Sunsetting

As of May 1st, 2022, servers that do not already have the verification plugin enabled will be unable to view the configuration page or configure the plugin.

We expect to completely remove the verification plugin in 2023 - our team will be sending out notices to all servers that use the verification plugin prior to this termination date.
If you have questions about the future removal of the plugin, please contact our support team.

TLDR: Unless your server already uses the verification plugin, you cannot enable it.


About the Verification Plugin

Alongside our moderation plugin, we strive to mitigate bad actors before they pose a problem in your server. Our Verification plugin requires joining members to certify they're not a robot, pass some inspections, and more!

Getting Started

Navigate to your server's dashboard.
Select the Verification plugin.
Follow the instructions below.

Getting Members Verified

Circle will attempt to message members when they join directing them to verify via our website. However, it's strongly encouraged to also post the following URLin a read-only channel so members who have their DMs off can still get verified.

Want to let a user bypass verification? Use the c!verifybypass command to allow someone to bypass verification for 10 minutes!

The URL to verify is:

Setting Up the Verified Role

This role will be assigned to members when they successfully complete verification.

Select your role from the verified role drop-down.

The Circle Cuties role will be assigned when members pass verification.

Configuration Options

Attempt to stop automated accounts - If enabled, Circle will also run the verifying member though a series of checks to attempt to stop raidbots.
=> ⚠️ This is an OLD feature that we do not recommend for most new servers, this relies on discriminating against new accounts - a practice that makes it difficult for new Discord users to simply exist on the platform.
Attempt to block VPNs while verifying - If enabled, Circle will prevent most members using VPNs from verifying, this is good for stopping ban evaders.
