    Certified ProfessionalWhat is a WSO Certified User?

    WallStreetOasis.com continually tries to identify our most seasoned and helpful members by tagging them with Certified User status. A Certified User will have a star next to his/her username every time they post a comment so that users new to the site will know that the comment is being made from a reputable source.

    • This member has proven to work a specified professional industry for a minimum of 1 year full-time (no college students or interns allowed)
    • This member has demonstrated superior knowledge in that specified field and given helpful advice to other users.
    • This member has displayed maturity, patience and a willingness to help other prospective monkeys with limited or no experience. Your account will get flagged for review should you have a favorable upvote: downvote ratio (typically over 3:1).
    • Certified User status can be removed if the user is inappropriate, combative and/or argumentative with other members

    Benefits of Certified User Status

    • No restrictions on private messaging system so certified users can network with other certified users and knowledgeable members for free in private chats
    • Access to the private Certified User group with instant messaging chat so that you can network and build relationships with other talented finance professionals
    • Respect in the community as a valued source of advice. Certified User knowledge is what keeps WSO a great resource for the younger members.

    Ways to Gain Certified User Status

    • The user has proven he/she works FULL TIME in the specified field in their profile for at least 1 year through e-mail verification to [email protected] or connecting with our CEO, Patrick Curtis on LinkedIn here. Or if you are not able to connect, e-mail him (and cc Ivy) at [email protected] and include a link to your LinkedIn profile so that we can confirm your professional status matches your profile. (Sorry, no interns)
    • The user has demonstrated superior knowledge in that specified field and given helpful advice to other users. This is not required, but is a way to get Certified automatically
    • The user has displayed maturity, patience and a willingness to help other prospective monkeys with limited or no experience
    • The user continues to display maturity and does not get into meaningless debates on school or company rankings (certification can be revoked)

    Note: Under rare circumstances, users that demonstrate superior knowledge and a desire to help can gain Certified User status very quickly, while other members will have to improve their reputation with the site administrators & moderators to become certified.

    If you believe you deserve to be certified and have not been yet, you can always e-mail [email protected] with a link to your LinkedIn profile to make your case or just have us review your account.

    "Look, you're my best friend, so don't take this the wrong way. In twenty years, if you're still livin' here, comin' over to my house to watch the Patriots games, still workin' construction, I'll fuckin' kill you. That's not a threat, that's a fact.
