Trust Metric

one of Metrics

One way of modelling Reputation Management.

Good summary at MeatballWiki:TrustMetric - A system to rank individuals in an online community based on how much the community as a whole "trusts" each individual. A trust metric assigns an exact amount of trust to each identity. Thus it usually measures how much the community as a whole trusts that identity. (In contrast, a Web Of Trust system determines for each user the amount of trust they can place in someone.)

Advogato is the standard example. Yet there is regular gnashing of teeth over problems with its implementation (not in terms of math/software, but in terms of definitions to drive human behavior).
