How do I get a Gold Tick on DriveTribe?

Gold ticks of glory on DriveTribe profiles now have a new meaning: Tribe Leader

We regularly field questions about the Gold Ticks by certain users' names on DriveTribe; what do they mean, and how can you get one?

Gold profile ticks on DriveTribe originally meant 'legendary Tribe Leader' - usually a Tribe Leader who had been active and engaging from the very beginning of DriveTribe's history. A Tribe elder, if you like.

King of the Alessandros?

We then went through a patch of extending them to certain creators and community movers n shakers who we felt were doing a sterling job with their content and community interaction. However, as the myriads of great people on DT who don't have a Gold Tick shows, we haven't done this, albeit on a very ad hoc basis, for ages.

DriveTribe grew up. We couldn't keep up.

Now, we're bringing Gold Tick verification back to signify a Tribe Leader on DriveTribe.

While individual Tribe audience is no longer the be-all and end-all of your content's success like it was in DriveTribe's early days, Tribes are still very much a part of the DriveTribe landscape. We're eager to denote this and acknowledge the Leaders putting in the hard yards to grow their Tribes and give them an identity on the platform.

Thus, all active Tribe Leaders on DriveTribe will be signified with a gold tick by their profile.

HOW DO I BECOME A TRIBE LEADER?

To prevent the free-for-all and resulting glut of Tribes, we now require would-be Tribe Leaders to first be Supporters, even if only for a month.

Occasionally we appoint an active and outstanding member of the DriveTribe community with a passion in a Tribe area to lead our Official Tribes - like Home of F1, All Reviews, Music Tribe, or one of our Owners Clubs.

For our guide to becoming a Supporter and requesting a Tribe, please read:

I AM A TRIBE LEADER: HOW DO I GET MY GOLD TICK?

We will be slowly adding Gold Ticks to active Tribe Leader's profiles starting now - however, they will be added manually, and thus it's ideal if you apply for your Gold Tick to receive it within 24 hours. Please note you must be a Tribe Leader to apply.

I ALREADY HAVE A GOLD TICK AND I'M NOT A TRIBE LEADER; WILL I LOSE IT?

We won't be taking any existing Gold Ticks away. You mightn't be a Tribe Leader, but you're clearly legendary.

Please note the Gold Tick has a degree of respectability on DriveTribe; Tribe Leaders should be additionally sure their behaviour on the platform is upstanding and supportive of other users. We reserve the right to temporarily or permanently suspend the Gold Tick as a first strike for behaviour that is against our Terms of Use.
