I would be concerned that reward for voting is actually for action of 'ticking box' and 'marking 1-5' and is not a reward 'for accurate voting'. The effort of mentally parsing a trade far outweighs the UI interaction cost, so the most logical user activity is to rapidly click 'whatever' and earn their virtual currency. Also in small groups expect people ...

From my point of view, the best way to engage the users to vote is to reward them. But I won't make their trades more prominent because this could influence the results in a bad way (e.g. an user, who has done some poor trades, could get more votes in a certain category just because their trades would be more visible and the other users would simply vote his/...

The problem with this kind of issue is that I suspect you would get different answers from different parts of the globe. I suspect (and this is just a suspicion - I have no evidence for this) that populations with US trade interests may favor the .com suffix as it is considered a larger 'global' entity rather than just confined to their country whereas non-...

Please pick which of the two sites you'd like to help us evaluate: [www.website.com] [www.website.co.uk] And adjust the second link to be whatever the local domain extension is. Ideally you'd randomize the position of both links too, because some ...

Have a look at 'Study: How Searchers Perceive Country Code Top-Level Domains' on Moz.com. Author Eli Schwartz presents some successful approaches to really get at 1. whether users are aware of general TLDs, 2. do users see a particular TLD (.edu specifically) as more trustworthy, 3. can users identify a particular location by the ccTLD used, and 4. can users ...
