thanks for the writeup. any recommendations on changing the trust level from the default 2? anecdotal stories whereby increasing or decreasing makes sense?

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=211858.0

I would suggest reading up on the trust system.  The above link goes to the announcement topic from the Meta section.

I'm going to leave this thread unlocked for newbies to ask questions and help each other understand.  Useless replies and off-topic remarks will be deleted.


Edit - This is a useless reply:

What about a linkable ledger that would show the cash value/BTC for negative-trust transactions?  This might be a way of exposing any long cons.

Keep us updated... Very interested in seeing it in action  Wink

Would be nice to know more about it. Looks interesting!

I keep my trust setting at "0" unless I am actively researching someone.

When I'm looking at someone, I add them to my trust list and then bump the depth up to 3.  This tells me who they trust and what the cascade of trust levels are.  It is interesting to see who is "in bed" with who.

This is a great strategy!  Thanks for sharing.

You aren't supposed to rely on it, it's a tool, nothing more.

So what is the point of having one? If trust system doesn't work, then it just misleads people into trusting the wrong individuals thinking they are safe.

It does work, me saying it's just a tool doesn't mean it's broken. If I give you a hammer, would you consider it broken if it doesn't build a house for you by itself?

Because it's better than nothing. In the end, only you are responsible for your decisions and the risk you take.

Thank you, but I am well aware that I am responsible for my decisions, I was just stating the fact that these systems can be gamed and give a false sense of confidence to people.

It was a good idea on paper. But it needs to be moderated. Otherwise, trusted people will be able to give negative feedbacks for no reason to people they dislike, which is unfair.... You could be able to appeal a trust.

The trust system is just a way of aggregating people's opinion on each other.  There should be no appeal process since my opinion about you can't really be appealed.  If I hate your guts and think you are scum, then I have a right to that opinion.  If you find out that someone is just giving negative feedbacks for no reason to people he hates, then remove him from your trust list and it won't affect you one bit!

In short, you decide who is on your trust list, and if you don't want to trust people who are loud about their opinion and you think they have no good reason to be giving negative feedback, then remove him from your trust list and problem solved!

This whole ecosystem of Alt-coins is based on Trust.  The ethos and the backbone of its success rely on the degree of trust from the users and the promotors.  Whether that is people trading coins, or just the adopters of coins in mainstream society. Trust will keep the coins rolling.... so yeah, I am all about it.  Just a pain in the backside having to start a profile from scratch hahaha  Grin

There is no overall trust rating. You see "trust" only from your trust network.

It seems you didn't add anybody to your trust network. So, of course, you will see that everybody has trust "0".
