Objective reputation systems

rely on the community service provider or the reputation system to provide factual evidence of the ranking, based on well defined metrics and repeatable criteria. The individual can apply some kind of subjective analysis to this raw data to obtain his personal assessment of reputation (and share it with other users). However the core "reputation measures" are based on objective evidence, observable by the whole community (e.g. reports, analysis-based scientific metrics and criteria, average bit rate of a video streaming server).[1]
