If you dislike DefaultTrust, but want to have trustworthy ratings automatically be shown to you, then I'm proposing a new trust list called AlternateTrust. It's obviously centralized, but it has much more community input.

You can use DefaultTrust and AlternateTrust together if you like, remember.

I've already created the username, and if you like, you can replace DefaultTrust with AlternateTrust right now, and build your trust list on top of it, like:

Code: (Trust list)
AlternateTrust
user1
user2
user3
user4
user5

or simply:

Code: (Trust list)
AlternateTrust

People are added to AlternateTrust if their public application gains a support. "Support" isn't defined per se, but you can ask to hear the reasoning if you like.

Nothing forces you to use this and if you dislike anything that starts happening to it you can remove it from your Trust list. I recommend you use AlternateTrust with a trust depth of 2, so it's something like:

Code: (Trust list)
AlternateTrust
-user1
--user1.2
--user1.3
-user2
--user2.2
-user3

Requirements to be on AlternateTrust:

  • At least 5 trades/loans completed
  • Support from the community
  • Demonstration that you give accurate trust ratings
  • Demonstration that you hold an accurate trust list of people who give accurate ratings

That's all. To apply, simply post on this thread with proof of the above and why you should be added. If people support you, you'll be added.

This is largely experimental, and it may or may not work, just remember that.

If you want to donate to me for making this, send some coins to 171717Lqgyi88sqSqRtToFYUYmJqeq5Bui Wink

Note: I wouldn't recommend using only AlternateTrust right now, because the only user it contains is me.

I'm dabbling in Bitcointalk again - I won't be making trades with people. If I try to trade with you, ask for a signature from my address 171717... which I have had control of since about 2015. If I can't provide it, I might have been hacked.

... snip ...

I'd trust you, if you cared to explain what business you had with TradeFortress.
You two seemed like you were sleeping together a few month ago, then something changed - when TF removed his trust towards you.
Anything we should know?

I like the idea of having AlternateTrust list, though, but I'd rather have it displayed below my own, something like that:


Comparing my own trust list to default/other people's trust lists could be really useful, actually.
For now, I really don't like your "AlternateTrust" puppet idea, as you're the one knowing the account password and thus decide who makes it there or not.

PS : Notice my godly editing mspaint skill. Grin

[OVER] RIDDLES 2nd edition --- this was claimed. Look out for 3rd edition!
I won't ever ask for a loan nor offer any escrow service. If I do, please consider my account as hacked.

I don't trust TF anymore. I trusted TF back then.

Your alt trust idea sounds good, as long as it's not edited so badly. Wink

And yeah, the system isn't perfect, but there's not really any way to decentralize this thing - there has to be a point of centralization. Someone could make a better system, and if they do, that's great.

EDIT: Epic HTML skills resulted in this concept:

I like the idea of an alternative trust system, but don't know how a consensus can be reached on who should be on the list.  People will always disagree on whether particular members are trustworthy or not.  Also there would also need to be an established process to remove members from the list when they are no longer trusted.  I think it is an interesting experiment and am interested to see how it develops.

Yeah, no. You need to post reasons. Roll Eyes

I'm going to add some people to my personal trust list which should add some depth to AlternateTrust.

I'm dabbling in Bitcointalk again - I won't be making trades with people. If I try to trade with you, ask for a signature from my address 171717... which I have had control of since about 2015. If I can't provide it, I might have been hacked.
