...and I'm hiring content creators to help launch it. literally paying people just to create content that you're interested in, on a group channel that you moderate. pick a topic you're interested in, and get at me with ideas. if its good, i'll pay you for your effort in helping to get things rolling.
shoot me a message if interested.
MORE ABOUT THE SITE:
social streams will function like an integrated blend of reddit and twitter. ex: https://tenpointdog.com/members/tenpointmatt
groups will function much like subreddits - joining groups will populate your 'groups' feed with content (which is sortable in your feed by 'hot' and 'new'). the directory page for group listings is here: https://tenpointdog.com/groups/
and sitewide group activity (the equivalent of reddit 'all') is here: https://tenpointdog.com/activity/?type=groups
by default, group based feeds will sort by popularity (using an algorithm similar to reddits), but you can also choose to sort by new.
following other users will function like twitter - anything they post in groups, or as individual statuses will appear in your 'main stream' feed. the user stream is sorted in temporal order, rather than by popularity - like twitter. this means you can also re-share a group post at any time to your followers (even if it was posted long ago), and it will appear at the top of their temporally-ordered feeds, unlike the group sorting algorithm where things get buried after a short time.
by default, comments/replies to group posts and user posts are sorted by upvote - same as reddit. you will also be able to sort by newest (update on the way in about a week).
theres also traditional message boards baked into the site - groups can have more linear, long running discussions in forums attached to the group. and if you follow a user, their forum posts will appear in a separate 'forum stream', allowing you to easily keep up with forum activity of people you follow.
the main landing page will be curated, aggregated content from this site and others. fantasy sports freeroll contests will also be held on the contests page.
have a look, see what you think. sign up if you want to look around more, and feel free to post some content on a topic youre into - we need some good contributors!
