Reputation

Sources

The reputation for an individual source is calculated by taking into account the history of scores from the articles it's associated with. This makes the most significant factor of its credibility, consistent over time, instead of being judged based on an individual basis or entirely by short-term trends. We also take into account some of the established third-party information to assess the reputation of a given source (Web Archive, Opensources, Google News and similar).

To have a positive affect on your reputation overall, the content voted on must be considered related by our server and have a high score.
