re:More granularity in URL's needed

You're absolutely correct. It's not possible to measure trust with a single value, because there are different types of trust. For example, you may be confident that someone won't steal your identity, but you may still suspect they might cheat you in a card game. This is the reason we ask users more...

re:More granularity in URL's needed

We can compute reputations for pretty much any uniquely identifiable target. Back when we designed the system, we had a long discussion on what these targets should be. There were a couple of considerations to take into account:<br /> <br /> 1. It should be possible to point out a single entity that...

re:What is there to stop a business competitor from m

Well, we <i>are</i> in the process of reviewing the websites. Therefore, it shouldn't really come as a surprise if we visit your site.<br /> <br /> As I said, reputations are set by our users.

Threatening us makes no difference, the reputations are set by our users.<br /> <br /> If we find a user manipulating the system, the system will start ignoring her opinions, including the previous opinions. This will result in the reputations changing.<br /> <br /> When new users share their opinio...

re:What is there to stop a business competitor from m

I think that's enough.<br /> <br /> WOT was created to help people, it is not your personal battle zone. I don't think any of your potential customers reading this would find either of you trustworthy.<br /> <br /> We take manipulation attempts seriously. You can be assured that we will review testi...

In short: If you disagree with a reputation, testify. If you believe the reputation is being manipulated, contact us.

re:McAfee SiteAdvisor

All versions of WOT since 20070104 have worked together with SiteAdvisor in our tests. I currently have SiteAdvisor 26.3 and WOT 20070329 installed on this system without any problems.



Do you have any other extensions installed that might be causing problems?

re:Feature Requests

You can look up reputations for any website on the My WOT page, or if you are not logged in, you can use the Ask WOT website:<br /> <br /> http://api.mywot.com/ask/<br /> <br /> However, having a separate website for sharing more detailed opinions is one of the ideas we'll be sure to look into in fu...
