One of the developments I liked on here when I saw it was the "trust" function, where you can leave a review after doing business with someone. At first glance though, it seems like almost everybody has 0 trust. It only shows if you have trust from a "trusted" member-unless you click on it. I just think something should be changed so at first glance you can see something about a member's trust. If you're the average user (i.e. not a hero member/mod), your trust probably says 0. But if you click on it-theres something there. I got my first rating from a "trusted" member the other day, so it says "+1". Although, the first number next to trust is 0. Maybe I just don't understand how it works?

I have enabled "show untrusted feedback" it's pretty handy.

Agree, trust should be changed. Maybe trust should only allow Hero and above to comment and click.

You are supposed to add people YOU trust into the trust list, so that you can see their trust ratings.

The algorithm that generates those numbers is quite obscure but looking at other's people feedback is useful even if you don't trust them

I never understood how it exactly works. But red negative trust is a warning someone may be scamming here. The +trust probably has only TradeFortress and his friends  Shocked

I don't think many people use it now anyway.

The way trust calculated is not 'obscure'.

Can you please tell me where the actual algorithm is explained in detail?

Nowadays you can buy trust. So what trust really is?

I don't see how can I buy it.
Ok I can convince some newbie to give positive feedback but does it changes anything?
