3.1 - What is Accreditation?
Last updated a year ago

[noun] Accreditation is the act of granting credit or recognition to someone who maintains suitable standards.

In the the case of being a content creator or livestream broadcaster, being accredited tells publishers, developers and PRs looking at your account that you regularly feature video games, tag them appropriately, and have an active audience watching your content.

Being put forward for Accreditation is an automatic process triggered by subscribers and content tagging. The latter is how we pick up on gaming content, so if you upload gaming videos just tag them with the official tag you'll find on the site and then we'll automatically pick it up for you and add it to your profile.
When your status has changed to “Pending Accreditation”, a genuine human (or close relative of a human) checks your content.

There is always a queue for the humans to watch the videos submitted for accreditation. If we're quick, it happens in a day, but it may take up to a week. The queue is sorted by submission time and number of views, so channels with high viewer counts tend to get accredited before channels with only a few hundred views.
