This article will go through the steps to request, and cancelling, a judgment from one of this registrars.

Requesting a Judgement
1. Navigate to the Extrinsics tab and select 'identity.requestJudgement'.
If you don't know which registrar to pick, first check the available registrars by going to "Chain State", under "Developer" > "Chain state", and selecting 'identity.registrars' to get the full list. Or you can check this wiki page that lists the current Polkadot registrars.
To use the official W3F Registrar service, use the settings below, and click "Submit Transaction".
The W3F registrar service is currently free to use on Polkadot, however on Kusama it requires a small fee of 0.04 KSM, which can be entered in the "maxFee" field as a value in Plancks, i.e. 40,000,000,000.
This will make your identity go from unjudged:
See this article for instructions on how to use the W3F registrar service.
Cancelling a Judgement
1. To do this, first, go to the "Extrinsics" tab and select the 'identity' pallet, then 'cancelRequest'. Ensure that you are calling this from the correct account (the one for which you initially requested judgement). For the 'reg_index', put the index of the registrar from which you requested judgement.
2. Submit the transaction, and the requested judgement will be cancelled.
