though the mission remains the same
That's the point, to keep this mission is the reason to be here, to keep the net safe

On the other hand, we need to send a clear message to every user, in particular those who have done so much for WOT that their voices are being heard, and that the staff, would appreciate a bit of patience on their part, while the work on beta continues

No one is indispensable, but that includes WOT as well that have been well served by a group of unique members that do not need WOT Instead they have worked so hard because they truly believe in the mission

Well, it was confusing in the beginning. I do suggest some reconsideration. There is malpositioning of some options and plenty of missing ones.

The confusing part is that the firefox extension still shows me the 4 rating categories. When I visit a scorecard, I find it hard to determine WHERE the rating part begins and where the useless information ends?

And if there is information from third-party sources, why put it all the way up there, and leave it up to me to expand it? Either expand it right away, or hide it. Personally, I think the ratings are more important.

And the ratings, for instance when it says "very poor". It looks like something I might be able to click. Visually speaking, it's not very clear.

Also, can you explain the orange part to me? Why is "spam" orange and "malware" red in the comments? If you are using a scale from best being green to worse being red, why would you use the same colors to differentiate categories?

All that and I haven't even gotten to actually rating the site. The colored bars are nice and clear (no more wondering where 97% bad is the same as 89%). But once I click on a color on either scale, the fun really begins. Do you really think your users will go through the trouble of understanding how the hell it works? The "Yes" or "No" options are far from clear. Hovering over stuff makes me think it's christmas already.

As "bad" as the previous rating system was, at least it got people to use it. With so many obstaces, you're not exactly helping user engagement. I want to click a bunch of scales and hit save, not read through 20 yes no questions. This is the internet.

Yikes. I returned to rate some sites on WOT a few days ago and saw the new changes. I didn't have any complaints about the old system. Change is usually a good thing but I think not fixing what isn't broken is more important. I do find the new rating pages a bit confusing (but I trust that the good guys who run the show will sort things out).

Color/bar ratings do not show up when you select them. I like the multiple "yes/no" options.

Because these were fake accounts, most likely just paid to click "Yes" on everything. I'm sure the next round of instructions for microworkers etc. will have more details on what to select...

Thought that maybe a possibility. . . . Scary that WoT members are practicing being dumb. ~smiles~

This website is a "good site" but it is "only for kids" :)

I agree with his opinion on the [lack of need for] "fixing", echoing in this regard also similar opinions expressed in the posts by [url=https://www.mywot.com/en/forum/38394-scorecards-reformatted-don-t-panic?comment=217194#comment-217194 t=_self]MrGoodguy69[/url] and [url=https://www.mywot.com/en/forum/38394-scorecards-reformatted-don-t-panic?comment=217290#comment-217290 t=_self]g544[/url].

In reply to my post stating (with regard to the new scorecard) [url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TRoq6b6ptHg t=_self]"I Am Not Willing"[/url] (® Moby Grape - Peter Lewis 1969 - only the title is relevant, but the song is too nice to not link to it):<quote user="c۞g">:/

Change is inevitable, growth is intentional.[/quote]The reverse seems to apply here: it is the change that is intentional. The above mentioned examples of scorecard comments (in the previous 3 posts) show that there is growth: of confusion, which - though inevitable - was most likely not intentional :/
