I think it would be a good idea to give verification ticks for alliances with sister alliances or with a good reputation within the community.
For 7D it started a few weeks ago, we saw some alliances pop up with ‘Seven Days…’ in their name. At first we felt honoured and we still do. But today it was brought to our attention that someone actually tells people his alliance is affiliated with ours. These actions can affect us, if this guy (he’s currently a one member alliance) starts to misbehave within the game/community.
