Warpcast PSA We're going to be deprecating the purple checkmark badge this week and replacing it with something more meaningful! Why? - Originally novel idea for NFT avatars, before it existed on Twitter - It doesn't actually communicate anything of value - Want to spread awareness before so folks aren't surprised
what's coming next 👀?
I love this change!
👀 check mark for "has attended a meetup?"
There will be 12 circles surrounding yours with the avatars of your most interacted with casters. Clicking on one circle navigates to their profile. Becomes a weird way to explore castiverse.
dwr - so we are depricating purple me- sad purplse noises
Put in an Emoji hash or colorhash pfp ring to prevent impersonation
is it ENS verification, like @jam? since 1) warpcast is leaning into crypto experiences, 2) ~60% of current users hold an ENS, 3) @betashop's survey about web3 identify revealed ENS is how most identify, and 4) ENS much more individualized than an NFT, it would make sense. @greg, any ideas? 👀
Badges similar to GitHub’s? That would be cool and motivate people to be active. IE. 100 day caster, received 1000 likes or the Mac daddy…deployed app on Farcaster.
World ID? 🙃
Traditional kyc. Get your government issued id’s ready, people.
It’s a kiwi 🥝
Check mark to question mark update makes a lot of sense. Probably generates more clicks.
Is it a meme coin?
Colored circular outline 👀
How about you earn a tag of some kind for garnering a certain amount of actions during a given epoch Eg. Purple retweet symbol for getting 100+ retweets during 1 month Then there’s meaning I know to follow Bob because Bob gets a lot retweets/likes/posts/GMs Unlike Twitter it’s a badge based on recurring merit
Just Purple ? Launch caster too. !!
well wtf am I supposed to do?
I would actually love there to be an emoji of choice. Maybe even a cast by cast meta-mood indicator. On Twitter, I now know people to guess what kind of Tweet they might have put out and can gloss over or indulge in depending on my mood. But since Warpcast is new, I would like to have another indicator.
what if the check mark is based on other checkmarks interacting with that user?
going to lose mine :0
So good Dan!
Can’t wait to check!
Cool, there went the last bit of fomo not having one 🤘
Very nice so good
This didn’t need to go away, it just needed repurposed to a DAO/club badge of any sort
lol, for a second I thought you were literally just replacing it with a question-mark icon.
Farcaster in 2026: “we are introducing Farcaster Purple, $8/m for the verified checkmark, or a purple DAO membership“
Some sort of verified ENS names would be cool.
nice! wanna have one soon
