Don’t judge, so that you won’t be judged

For the way you judge others is how you will be judged; the measure with which you measure out will be used to measure to you (Matthew, 7:2)

Critiboard is a social media platform which enables its users (subjects) to rate various objects. By registering in the platform, users become a subject, which means they can rate an object, but they are also subject to other users’ rating.

Social media object rating

An object can be created in 3 different ways:

  1. by registration, with all subjects also being objects
  2. by Critiboard
  3. by the users.

The platform aims to become a universal rating platform for everything and anyone. Rating is only possible by selecting the +/- button, which appears next to every object’s icon. A user may opt not to rate an object and may change their selection at any time.

The platform contains an algorithm that delivers a two-digit number next to each object’s icon. The two-digit number is from 1 to 99. This is the “critiscore”. The critiscore changes according to the total votes by all other users for the object. Not all votes are of equal weight. The vote of each user weighs according to this user’s own critiscore.

Votes do not have to be justified by comments but may be so.

Our mission

Our mission is to develop a universal rating system driven by ordinary people’s opinions.

Our key principles

  • Not all votes are of equal weight; a voter’s influence depends on their own influence on others.
  • You can only vote if you accept the fact that you also subject to being rated.
  • There is no way to manipulate the platform or buy your way into a higher score.

Critiboard is:

  • 100% funded by own funds and the help of Theodoros Skouzos.
  • our first trial with big data, human behaviour analysis, opinion measuring and polling.
  • a .Net web application hosted on Microsoft Azure and is currently in the process of external fund raising to continue further.
