Ok.

A crazy  idea for TESTING is that if a majority people here will try to vote Avast as alcohol drugs if it really works the webrep. :P

You, as one user, could vote a million times for a site and it would only count as one vote.  That prevents, to some extent, stuffing the ballot box.

I already know that 1 vote per IP.

No need to explain for that.

Im asking is the voting really accurate?

Since Avast webrep were public release? it was automatically rank as perfect rating on Avast website.

Do you really believe that the ratings were based on votes? Show us the TOTAL VOTES

Or Avast team is really doing the ratings for the sites?

For me voting is useless if their is no evidence.

Indeed, it won't be bad if avast shows the total number of votes.

We will consider that for the future releases. Could be part of a web scorecard once that goes live (still some time away). Regarding the rates shown/not shown and their actual values shown: We have stated here time and time again that the servers are still not stable enough, pointing this out does not help us in any way. As a result your votes might take a longer time to be taken into account. Unfortunately temporary server outages still occur but the frequency of these events is much less than before. However all the votes received by the servers are being stored, don't worry. The algorithms for calculating the resulting score from these votes are being polished on the server side however and can be subject to change.
