Identity not identified?

I recently took a Spanish test (bought it with lingots) and guess what I got - 100%! I'm really proud of my score and glad that Duo has helped me progress so much with my Spanish.

But on my certificate, it reads:

"Liam Robertson (identity not verified)"

It kind of ruins it a little bit.

Is there a reason for this? I want to put it on my wall ^-^

They can't verify it unless they set up a system of identifying people. For example, paypal has its users send in their social security card and id to verify their identify. Right now, they are focused on other aspects of the site, so I don't foresee them fixing this issue anytime soon (don't quote me on that).

However, I could teach you how to edit out the '(identity not verified)' bit, so you can take a screen shot and show it off.

Note that Duolingo's problem is harder: they also need to verify that it was really you logged in and taking the test at the time. At the moment, if I wanted to get 100% on a Duolingo test, I could just contact a native speaker and give them my login details to take the test for me.

I guess I could probably cut it out and fill the area back in with gray with some sort of photo editor. If that's wrong... well... teach me your skills, master.

Scroll down to 'drag link to toolbar' (and do so), then go to the certificate's page, press the edit button, and then take out the identity part. Ask me if you have any problems.

I deleted the text okay, but once I've activated the text editor, I can't turn it off, so I can't save the picture D:

Edit out the text, then take a screenshot (if you're using windows, use 'snipping tool').

To stop the text editor, just refresh the page (though, it will bring it back to normal).
