To Whom It May Concern,
I’ve been an on and off fan of (CSW) for almost 2 years now. So anyways I was wondering. How do you guys come up with your review scores ?

How do you guys come up with your review scores ?
Reply: Well we actually have a few ways of figuring out our overall review scores.
Method #1. A 1st persons preceptive of the item in question. (Meaning only testing done by that one member determines the overall score.)
Method #2. The teams overall perspective. (Meaning every member runs their own tests and that factors into the overall score.)
Method #3. A membership / readership perspective. (Meaning both (CSW’s) membership and (CSW’s) readership runes their own tests. And reports back to us and that determines the overall score.)
* We use Method #1 for smaller software such as FireFox add-ons, Some common Freeware such as Auslogic Disk Defrag. We also use this method for paidware. Were only 1 of our membership has the full or paid version of the software. Such as AVG Internet Security 2011 or 2012.
** We use Method #2 for larger more complex software such as AVG, AVIRA, SUPERAntiSpyware ect. We also use this method with a lot of our Vs. Review features.
**** We use Method #3 for survey reviews, some site reviews. As well as some of our more complex features.
Till Next Friday,
