How soon after visiting / using a new site do you score it?

Post by liquid_dragon » Tue Apr 16, 2013 6:42 pm

This may make a good poll question; how soon after visiting or using a new site do you provide WOT scores for that site? Ideally everyone only provides scores on site they are familiar with, not every site they visited.

I generally wait a month or so for a any site that requires registration because I want to see if I they start spamming me with information I didn't request or if I see an increase in spam (I use different email addresses and job titles if it is work related to track who sells my information).

For other sites that don't require registration I will score them after a couple of weeks. Of course it also depends on how frequently I visit the site.

If it is a site i have just visited, i will go through the site for a couple of mins. Then score it using the addon or comment on it which I usually do.

<quote user="liquid_dragon">Ideally everyone only provides scores on site they are familiar with, not every site they visited.[/quote]
After seeing several of these front page items:
"FREE WINDOWS 8 - CRACKED" and "FREE LICENSE KEYS DU JOUR!"
one can be familiar with a new warez site literally at-a-glance.

If the site is more business-like, I can be familiar with its technical safety and intentions within 2-30 minutes, and just rate what I know.

There are many sites where you absolutely do not want to register. Keep in mind: the more places you register, the more bits of personal information provided by you and secretly collected.

As few minutes / at least 10 seconds, If I know them already, or seeing the homepage itself, or knowing the content and intentions of a website (For example, a typical "DOWNLOAD CRACK, WAREZ AND KEYGEN" website or http://facebook.com).

However, I may not rate if I really don't know the content of the websites. Or might take 15 days.

Other notes:
What if this question will be posted on "Polls" section? :)

It depends on what kind of site it is. Like the others said, some sites you can tell are scams at-a-glance. Other sites, like forums and news portals, can take some lurking around until you know what kind of content you can find there consistently. Some sites are a mixture of both- any adult site is going to get an automatic [red]red[/red] in child safety from me, but I'd have to spend more time there to see what the ratings in the other scorecard areas would be...I usually don't, though.
