We are making changes to the community portal’s group verification process. We will be discontinuing the group verification process as it wasn’t serving its intention of building recognition and legitimacy to groups. All groups will be able to request budget from resource reps (as done earlier, they will determine whether the group and the funding request are appropriate). The verification tab will be removed from the community portal and the functioning will continue as earlier (it will not mention whether a group has been verified or not)
It is important to note that resource reps, staff and new community members will still be viewing your group on the portal. Therefore, it is in your best interest to keep your group page active.
If you have any questions please feel free to email community-portal-verification [@] mozilla.com
