Posts are *everything* Blog reply, Forum reply, Scorecard comment, Poll reply - but not Wiki entries. The "count" is real time so after you post a topic reply for example you'll notice your profile comment count has increased.

[url=http://www.mywot.com/en/forum/1520-rating-count-in-profile?comment=2545#comment-2545 t=_self]Ratings are assigned to your profile every 24 hours[/url].
Your activity score is computed once every 24 hours as well; to reflect the "tally" of ratings + the increase of comments since the last activity score calculation.

I could rate a thousand domains today and it would not appear in my profile until the 24 hours has lapsed.

Also, you can comment without rating though you'll get the yellow INFO arrow with,
Oops! You forgot to add your rating. Make your opinion count by clicking on one or more of the colored bars.
So your comment doesn't "count" because comments do not affect the reputatin, only ratings do.

Understood... but his post

Understood...
but his post are seconds apart... Not that easy to do for a rookie. ~smiles~
Seems like he is using an unauthorized rating tool. That and his post/ratings may not be very well researched. Just something that needs investigated I would say.

Hm I've had a look at his comments and they seem pretty real to me. I haven't checked the sites of course but from all the domain names he appears at least not to be lying - which doesn't mean he didn't use blacklists. And sometimes he just copied the name of the category and used it for his (green) comments.

They seemed to be about 30 seconds away from one another - fair enough for a rookie isn't it?

Btw, does one really have to rate a site when they leave a comment?

No but does defeat the purpose in my opinion... Why say a site is bad and leave it sitting green.
Rather see one rate and not leave comments... that makes more sense.
But we stand behind WOT's admins

Perhaps he believes a comment is a rating.Just a thought.

Perhaps (s)he doesn't know that comments aren't ratings..?

Post by phantazm » Mon Jan 11, 2010 6:44 pm

At least that wouldn't be the first time someone made that mistake;
btw, has anyone notified the user about this..?

I'm no bot and bugs are everywhere,
comments alone don't affect reputations. Don't forget to also rate the sites
Is this the reason, why sites have green, even if they are/should be in red categories cause of comments, ratings, reputations?
Or others have red and yellow without any comments, reputations and ratings?
But in all MyWOt is OK (perhaps? or not, what matters?)
BTW. Is it possible to get green with a sold MyWOT Zertifikat, even it's not OK?
Sorry I think this should try others!!!!!????

If you mean that [url=https://www.mywot.com/wiki/FAQ#Comments_don.27t_match_the_reputation t=_self]comments sometimes don't match the reputation[/url], then yes, that's why. Users can and most often do rate sites without leaving a comment.

Is it possible to get green with a sold MyWOT Zertifikat

No, we don't sell reputations. Sites must earn their good reputation before we give them a certificate, and if their reputation drops to unsatisfactory, we take their certificate away.
