Two things:

1) if you want the "Verified Customer" badge for the forums you need to make certain that the email addresses you usd for ordering and for the forums match exactly. This is case-sensitive like a password... [email protected] does not equal [email protected]

and 2) Duplicate posts are usually deleted. This question was asked in your other thread here.

Under my name and group you see a large grey box that says "Verified Customer". This is the badge to which I was referring. Should you wish to display yours, as you have purchased a DS machine, match your email addresses and it will automatically appear.
