Much like Verifying Database Items, verifying Subjects - such as Hasbro, or Hot Wheels or Marvel helps maintain the integrity of data on hobbyDB. 


You can tell if a Subject has been verified if you see the following person icon with a checkmark. It will also say who verified the item as well as the date that the item was verified.




If a subject has not been verified, you will see that the person icon is blue like so - 



Here are some tips when verifying a given subject -


Does it meet the 4 tests? 


  1. Does it have at least 1 suitable Photo?

  2. Does it have at least 1 sentence describing the Subject?

  3. Does it have a Subject Type assigned? In this example, the type is "Actor"?

  4. Is it needs an Identifier or Alternative Keywords does it have those?


    If the Subject passes all these tests, then you can click the Squad menu >> the Editing section and then click Verify.
