Chapter 5 - Reputation

Reputation is gathered primarily to determine real users from (potentially spamming) robots.

Reputation algorithms will be developed in conjunction with the W3C Read Write and Trust community group which aims to created trusted read and write operations on the web.

The first reputation signal is based on followers.

Profiles are given a reputation

  • score of 3 * followers
  • up to a maximum of 90
  • 1 point is added for activating an account
  • Reputation is scored as a per centage

A more complex reputation algorithm will be developed soon.
