Mass Rating Tool fails to apply categories

Post by MarkGiles » Mon May 20, 2019 2:40 am

When I use the MRT to rate several sites, and I select the categories (in my case SECURITY CATEGORIES and REPUTATION CATEGORIES) the submission is accepted.

When I then load any of the mass-rated sites, I find that the categories have not been applied. If I then edit each one, one at a time from the URL
https://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/SITENAME I can take the Edit option and select the categories from there. When I submit each of those, then the category is correctly applied.

The MRT tool is not working properly.

Just now, I used the MRT, as you did, for about 100 sites.

If I then load any mywot.com/scorecard/DOMAIN_NAME, and step through the Edit sequence, each of my MRT specifications appears as expected. I believe this shows that the scorecard feature is working and the MRT feature is properly limping (and failing for more than 100 domains per session).

What seems to be broken (or partially detached or desensitized) is the WoT browser add-on because, when I can get one of those newly-rated sites to load (without its required campaign, redirection, and/or tracking parameters in the URL), the add-on displays specifications that are notably different from those of the domain's scorecard.

Environment:
* Windows 10,
* Chrome,
* MyWOT plug-in,
* Ad Blocker Adblock Plus whitelisting mywot.com[/list]

Today's experience. Mass-rated these (subset of actual) with Scam, Privacy Risk, Potentiall Illegal
* klarahaily.ru
*libbiedulcine.ru
* marjiebrear.ru


I check that they have been accepted, at
https://www.mywot.com/en/user/{myID}/ratings

They are listed there with the one red star.

Loading the wen site at the mywot page:
https://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/marjiebrear.ru

There is no rating on those sites. I will allow for a processing delay and try again later. Then I will update this report.

Update - less than 10 minutes later, all is well - Red doughnut, categories OK.

Another test. 10 more updates

luckyfasteshop.ru
lucyolivia.ru
madelyninessa.ru
modestiafidelity.ru
robertaberni.ru
safepillsshop.ru
tarahvalerie.ru
eleanoreterri.ru
felicitydelia.ru
jordannaraynell.ru

FIRST TEST
Allow 5 minutes to process.
The rating is there, but the category tags are not set.

SECOND TEST
Allow 15 minutes, and the scorecards are all updated OK
https://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/luckyfasteshop.ru
https://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/lucyolivia.ru
https://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/madelyninessa.ru
https://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/modestiafidelity.ru
https://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/robertaberni.ru
https://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/safepillsshop.ru
https://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/tarahvalerie.ru
https://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/eleanoreterri.ru
https://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/felicitydelia.ru
https://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/jordannaraynell.ru

In summary, there is an improvement based on these tests. My previous experience was that the category updates were not performed even after allowing 24 hours. The review text would be there, but the doughnut was grey and categories not done.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What is still unbelievable is the variation in the Safety Rating Breakdown, where I submitted 4 categories in all 10.
1. Safety Rating Breakdown
Trustworthiness No Data

2. Safety Rating Breakdown
Categories Spam

3. Safety Rating Breakdown
Categories Suspicious, Privacy risks, Potentially illegal, Scam

I will check back later to see if this is also consistent, or just another time delayed process.
