After a group is formed in the WEG2G social site (read "Thirty Features of WEG2G that One Should Not Miss" for details), WEG2G keeps track of all group activities including the total plans posted by a group, total attending plans by a group, total plans accepted by a group, etc to measure their reliability index. In other words, in order to join another group plan, first, you may want to know how reliable his/her group is. To find out so, WEG2G calculates a Group Reliability Index based on the following five factors:
- The ratio of the plans posted by my group to the number of plans accepted by others.
- The ratio of the plan join request submitted by my group to the total acceptance from other groups.
- The age of my group or the total days since my group formation date.
- My group average rate or group score.
- The ratio of the plan join request submitted by other groups to the total acceptance from my group.
The Group Reliability Index ranges from 0 to 50 and is updated on a monthly basis. The higher an index value, the more reliable a group is. In plain text, the reliability index may reflect whether all group members show up on time in their plans, and/or whether other groups can trust their posted plans.
Last but not least, the Group Reliability Index is another unique feature offered via WEG2G. As the WEG2G groups go through different life cycles, their reliability Index might converge into a more stable range. Indeed, it is a good social practice for a group to aim at the five mentioned factors and strive to possess a higher score in the horizon.
