MyWOT still functional?

Post by NoScams » Thu Dec 28, 2017 2:37 am

Did MyWOT stopped functioning?

I red rated this electronics scam: 3nodtrade.com
https://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/3nodtrade.com

But on Chrome no warning and grey not rated icon show up.

Then this scam, red marked in summer > xinmei-electronic.com > only gets an orange rating.

Seems the warning system is totally dysfunctional.

PS: Don't rate the 2 sites above so everybody can see how poor mywot functions.

I tested a website that I had rated previously to the forum switchover and the warning appeared. I am though using Classic WOT 3.0.
When you visited the site you rated did the hyperlinks stop working? Because I notice WOT 3.0 sometimes fails to display the warning box and instead freezes up the page. Did you try refreshing and seeing if the warning appears?

I test with FF and Chrome and for 3nodtrade.com it shows up just grey - as in 'not rated'. A Mywot fail.

At this point it makes no sense to suggest people to install mywot to browsers since the main function, warning users, does not work.

Interesting, I just (as in just now, Jan 8th) get notified that D̵eSi͠gn replied to my comment. That's a 10 days delay.

So mywot is dysfunctional.

And this said, where is the message and notification page?

Just an update: Some people added a + to the scam report of the site below - however, still grey, still no warning triggered.

Mywot isn't working anymore. As a warning tool it's useless now.

https://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/3nodtrade.com

I give you another scam with a website that is still alive, same problem.

3nodtrade.com appears to be parked, so there is no sense in rating it. (What does a "+" mean?)

To change the color of an unrated scorecard requires two or more similar ratings (unless maybe you have superpowers). In addition, we have no idea how many people may have rated it anonymously. I added a similar rating for biubiusupplies.com so now there are at least two.

How does any of this prove that WoT isn't working?

I've been strolling and lurking around on WOT the last few days.
What a mess ! !
Where's our MB ?
We seem to have a new profile....... Yeah, found it in the jungle ! But its incomplete
html tags don't work anymore
Scorecard spamming remains unsolved by the admins ( see e.g. aspidanetwork,com )
Everything on screen has changed, lay out, posts and such
WTF, why is this needed ?

To me it seems a method to get rid of members or to make them not active anymore.
Where's the active and thrilling inspired community we had a few years ago ?
Are all these changes an improvement of WOT ?

Hey there in Finland, what are you doing ?
~sigh~ I had to say this...... SORRY !

If it doesn't warn it's not functional. That are not sites that trigger different opinions, that are clear scams with the intention to defraud. Even they defraud less than 3 people, it's IMHO not acceptable.

It looks like the browser Add-on fails to retrieve the aggregate score (it also thinks my rank is Bronze).
I ran some tests and sent a pile of details to Staff.

Update - a few hours later: Staff forwarded this to the development team.

Update: Another test shows the add-on only displays non-gray color for sites (e.g., Microsoft) whose aggregate rating has very high Confidence. Therefore surfers do not see red warnings for emerging threats recently rated by very few members.
