It's been a long time since I've seen any increase in my points, despite adding reviews.
I cannot see reviews on scorecards ... when I'm logged in to my account. If I log out the reviews are there ...
All my reviews have been made via the website; I no longer have a WOT add-on installed.
Activity points are accrued on a logarithmic scale; so as you progress from zero to platinum, (a) the same effort yields fewer activity points =
(b) it takes more effort to accrue activity points. This (along with other automated analyses of rating quality and consistency) helps to foil "instant platinums" seeking "power". As a silver member with over 5K points, you are beginning to notice the pull of gravity (after you pass 9K, it's more like swimming in molasses in January), so you're right
to be unconcerned about it (especially as one who rated about 45 domains in all of 2018).
I have the WoT add-on installed in Chrome, Firefox, and Opera, and not installed in Edge and Tor. I can see scorecard comments (including yours) in each browser, whether I'm logged in to WoT or not. I have IE11, but Microsoft now keeps it locked in a padded room so no one can hear the screams.
hings to try (step-wise):
On the assumption that you are using Windows 10, 8, or 7 (1 year to End-Of-Life) ...
Make sure your browsers' versions are current (except IE, which I recommend replacing with nearly any other browser except Lynx). Make sure to update them only from their manufacturers' sites, not from AndysCuriousPrograms.con ...
If you have just updated the browser you normally use at WoT, look again for scorecard comments while logged in. If you see them, then stop here - you're done. Otherwise ...
Look through that browser's settings and add-ons for severe restrictions that block elements that are injected into pages. The good guys do this (and call it "responsive design") as much as the bad guys, so you may need to white-list [*.]mywot.com if you wish to keep certain restrictions. For add-ons, test one-at-a-time: disable, test (login to WoT, look for scorecard comments, log out), enable, restart the browser, go to the next add-on. Multi-purpose, do-everything, "convenience" toolbars can be problematic. Yes, it's tedious.
Let me know what you discover.
One unexpected thing is that you have scorecard comments going back to 2009, but your "join date" in this forum is 2016.
