Understanding References

How do I give a reference to someone?

Working from the Ko-zooKKies page, select any user to view his or her complete profile. At the top you will see the option to “Add Reference.” Simply select this option and follow the prompts to give that user a reference.

What is the purpose of references?

References are a way for users to give their stamp of approval to people they know. References can be given to people they know outside of zooKKs or people that they have carpooled with. We implemented a reference system because we believe that it is a good way for users to build credibility with one another and to create a community of comfort and trust.

Example of a reference: I’ve known Joe for the last 4 years, we worked together on a project and, in my experience, and he is trustworthy, friendly and positive.
