We believe that communities are better when each member has skin in the game. By locking SENSE to a channel, you support that channel which helps it grow. These SENSE tokens are still yours and if you decide to leave they will be returned to you which lowers the power of the channel and your earning rate.

Vouching helps prevent people from impersonating others. By Vouching for someone, you're claiming that this account can be trusted and this person is who they say they are. After you Vouch for someone, other members can see you who you Vouched for creating trust. More features are coming that Vouching will affect, so Vouch wisely!

How do I report a bug?

You can report a bug by opening Sense Chat and shaking or moving your phone from side to side or back and forth. You don't have to shake your phone hard! We don't want you throwing your phone out the window. Once you shake your phone a window will appear. There you can report a bug.

Who is allowed to post a message on my channel?

You can allow Everyone to post or Admins Only. By allowing Everyone that means any member of the channel may post. If you choose Admins Only, only the admins can post a message but members can still reply in a thread to each message.
