I don't think it is encouragement

Noobs are going to surf willy nilly anyway. At least from going from WOT outwards (on the rare occasions that scenario comes up as most people come from the outside in) they have an idea what they are in for. Also, I doubt people brand new to the internet are here. I have been surfing for 12 years a...

to state the obvious

Anyone who is *that* open to attack (even green sites) is in trouble the minute they open their browser. That is one reason why g7w's idea of the 'you are leaving the site' warning is good from WOT's point of view, it absolves them of responsibility and yet doesn't pen you within WOT. As Blueberry M...

that's ok, it would be easier if I could point

With the new similar sites gizmo, you don't go to the site first. And if you follow a link that is in the forum, it usually sends you to the scorecard rather than the site. Long story made short, a site link is a good idea even though there are other ways to get there, because I am lazy.

eventually we will all say "I get what you're saying now"

Nah, I am the queen of tabs (I think I shall use that as a username one of these days) and know how to open a new one. I just thought there was a link to the original site from the scorecards I wasn't seeing. (unless it is invisible, there isn't)

So back to your idea g7w, I vote yes.

Um....

I am going to show myself as the noob I am but right click on *what*? I see no link to the original site on scorecards. I have been opening new tabs and typing urls in by hand, or, erasing the WOT front end of the scorecard URL to get to the site. (unless you are saying what to do if it ever was to ...

I have been wondering why this isn't a feature

There should be a link to the site from the from the site's scorecard. If possible it should open the site in a new tab so you can keep the scorecard open too.

There is a lot of subjectivity involved

I just did several google searches on christian sites and discovered that most of them (15 pages of searches) have green WOT symbols -- and half of those have only been rated as 'trustworthy' (rest left blank) simply to get the green wot symbol to appear, I am thinking. It is kinda hard to figure ou...

reaction to the feature

"site suggestions are not very useful for the less popular websites" Oh Snap! I don't have a website to be compared to but I will tell you one reason I don't like this new feature...I am on dial-up half the time I am online, and that feature just made the scorecards take twice as long to load. If yo...

funny but not funny

The Jesustrail.com site showing up at the bottom of your scorecard made me laugh (sorry). Go to similarsites.com and do a search on your site (you get a longer list) -- there is at least one full-on-red (run away and lock your door) site which shows up as 'similar' to your site. http://www.similarsi...

Thanks for the link!

I was looking for this information myself and wasn't having any luck. I had no idea there was a WOT wiki.
