Verifying your email address is an important step as it helps keep your account secure and makes it easy for you to use the Reset Password feature if you ever forget your password. On top of that your account will also get the bonus of the Verified, Bonafide, Plaidafied hat for doing so!
Note: In the past, players received the old Verified Sign for verifying their email address. This has been retired. Players will now receive the new Verified, Bonafide, Plaidafied hat in its place.
