[[Wiki.trustroots.org]] is an independent wiki with information for people who are actively exchanging hospitality.

Why would you share an experience

There are multiple reasons why someone would want to read or share an experience;

It’s a way to say “thank you” in to someone who has helped you. One can get an idea of an experience you could have with this person. Maybe the person(s) enjoys long conversations, takes their guests on tours, is busy or not busy, or enjoys a faster or slower pace of life. You can get an idea through the experiences posted along with their bio. You may want to see if the persons is active in the community — Perhaps you prefer to stay only with those who clearly demonstrate a level of generosity in hospitality and have some more experience than others. Perhaps you’d like to understand what kind of people someone is meeting and how? Did they meet only with one gender, or families, or a speakers of a certain language, or people coming from a geographic region? It can give cues to the type of person the host has accepted in the past that could serve your research in picking a host. A sense of safety and being able to trust fellow members is quite important. While experiences can never be a truly proactive safety feature all the time, it does help significantly to reduce risks for those using Trustroots.

Bad Actors

What if your experience with another person using Trustroots was not great?

We take trust and safety seriously at Trustroots and if a said member has clearly behaved against our rules or otherwise disrespectful to you, or those you are traveling with please report them to support. If you, or someone you know, have been witness or a victim of a crime, please report it to the local police immediately, and inform us as well.

Posting a public “bad” experience on the said users profile may not be enough to inform future members about this person. So, we would appreciate if you report it to the support team, even as a precaution and make support aware of the member. If members can’t be recommended they will need to be asked to leave the community ultimately.
