The Mass Rating Tool seems to have currently disappeared.
Is this a bug or a design point?

If the MRT tab has disappeared from the profile page of your "scorecard account" (when you are logged into it) at https://www.mywot.com/user/ you may wish to contact the WOT staff by email at support@mywot.com

Long process to edit an existing rating

Post by MarkGiles » Fri Mar 09, 2018 3:49 am

1. Unable to perform simple edit of a rating

This is an issue with MyWOT ratings.

After posting a rating for a web site, I can not go back and edit it.
[EDIT this has improved to permit the edit]

The way to do that now is to
1. view the previous rating
2. click the"pencil" edit icon, then
3. go through the process of ... selecting rating stars if changing, then
4. selecting the violations from the 3 following panels if changing, then
5. copy and pasting the original text, and
6. making modifications, before
7. posting it.

With the loss of the mass-rating tool, and being restricted to only one rating at a time, and now this long, tedious process to modify a posting, this whole rating process is just unworkable.

Mass Rating Tool failure

Post by MarkGiles » Fri Mar 09, 2018 3:51 am

2. Mass Rating Tool failure
Post by MarkGiles » Tue Feb 20, 2018

the mass rating tool accepts the list of names, ratings and comments, but when you submit it, MRT goes into a loop and does not complete the request.

All I get is the interminable rotating blue donut.

It has been over 2 weeks now. It looks like there is no development for WOT, and nobody is maintaining it.
Will WOT disappear through lack of support? That would be a shame, as it has always had great potential.

Re: The New WOT - Cumbersome site rating

Post by MarkGiles » Fri Mar 09, 2018 4:10 am

3. The procedure to rate a web site takes too many iterations.
  • Click on Rate this site
    Click on star
    Click on Next
    >new screen
    Click on security concerns
    Click on Next (or click on Skip)
    >new screen
    Click on tags that describe this site
    Click on Next or Skip
    >new screen
    Click on unsuitable for children categories
    Click on Next
    >new screen
    Write the review
    Click on Submit
When it was working, the Mass Rating Tool was quicker and easier, presenting all options on the one screen. Even if you are processing only one site, it is superior in quality and ease of use as shown here : https://ibb.co/e4YCyS

The New WOT - Moving Backward....

Are there any working alternatives to mywot where the warning function still work? This site became quite useless.

Editing a previous rating.

Post by MarkGiles » Sat Mar 17, 2018 1:13 am

If have modified my complaint about the tedious process of editing a previous rating.
It is now possible to use the pencil-shaped Edit icon, and to use copy/paste to retrieve the previous text.

However, it is still a multiple-step process that could have been provided in a single screen.

I have just wasted hours performing identical ratings for 50 sites, one by one. It would have taken a minute using the Mass Rating Tool.
This is unacceptable.

Yes the delay in fixing MRT is totally unacceptable as well as the vague replies I have receive from support@mywot.com concerning MRT. From the replies I gather other issues with MyWOT are more important than fixing the MRT problem.

Legacy users of the mass rating tool (MRT) who haven't received any recent replies from the WOT staff may wish to make another attempt to use it. I notice remaining serious errors with the ratings system, so I can't evaluate the MRT's current reliability.
