I have seen that the Wiki has not been updated since around version 2.0 of the extension came out, and what about WOT for Safari?

I also can't find any change log info for the browser extensions since version 2.0.

It appears as WOT is testing a new header for the forums area.

I didn't see a notification of the reintroduction of https://www.mywot.com/en/trustseal . What is the reason for this backward step? Wot tried this before and it was neither successful nor popular amongst members.
Currently it seems only owners claiming sites are aware of it.

Why does it say 'buy subscription' ?

Wot states WOT Trust Seal helps to improve your business"
Where is the evidence to support this claim?

You also state the 'seal' shows new visitors that your site can be trusted"
Will you be checking sites with 'seals' daily to ensure they haven't been hacked or infected and are still safe?
How will you deal with illegal sites eg streaming pirated movies or distributing pirated software with good ratings who request this 'seal'? .

I'm wondering if this 'seal' is the reason for the huge increase in manipulation attempts recently.

Obviously with revenue down from the collection of user data disaster, this has been silently reintroduced to fill the large gap in revenue that has resulted from it.
