To request a Site Eval, you're supposed to claim your site
also, you must be registered.
A Site eval reply => notify OP is a good idea.
This should be via user notification, an automated system to Site Evaluation OP's similar to those _we_ get from "Admin" stating something like:
The following replies have have been posted to your site's evaluation discussion.
Please read and respond to these replies as you have requested.
As for email notification, there should be an option when creating the SE topic.
However, it should be OPT-IN meaning the offer is there but OP must select to choose it.
I have 2 more ideas is addition to OP notification
- IF 1 or more reply is made
AND the OP does not respond (reply in discussion) in ... 21 days (3 weeks)
THEN the OP is automatically locked and no new eval topic could be made for that domain
- Site eval's for ADULT related domains
Should have a check box for admin to confirm
then WOT should have an overlay stating
This site contains content not suitable for children, please use discretion.
Continue? [_} No | [_] Yes
This child warning would be good for new / existing topics as well through out the forums.
Agreed ! Good additions
The only thing is that is is happening WITHIN WoT itself and if requesters don't visit WoT anymore ( like some rookies don't ) they still aren't notified.
Hence my idea of notifying them on their E-mailbox.
Everyone checks his mail frequently and if they don't, then they're not really worth the attention anymore and your 21 days idea will be applicable.
Like Issviews said : You can bring a horse to the water ( = sending an E-mail ) but you can't force them to drink ( = responding )
In my view then it's DONE
