has launched

I'm very happy to announce that today we are officially launching today. - Share, Explore, Vote on Everything WordPress

Over the past six months we have worked incredibly hard on the project going through numerous iterations of the user interface, which is the crucial part of a site like this. uses a lot of cutting edge tech including an advanced iterative algorithm (similar in nature to Google's Pagerank) to determine the ranking of stories and authors.

It's been a huge joy of mine to work on a project like this and I feel as happy as when we launched

Will you use it? Let me know what you think!

    Hmm yes no clutter is key. Making the statement visible on hover over the Title, maybe? Something dead simple. Using WP's anchor text mecanism, filling the field with a call from the contribution form?
    I would say you don't need more than that.

    In any case this simple option would definitely cut the noise further down, the contributor's statement serving as a fine tuned filter. The risk of failed expectations when clicking on a link becomes quite low and the contributions gain value.

    Eventually, for the user experience, I'd add a tiny symbol next to the title, to make the option obvious.

    A few thoughts...

    Hi Vladimir,
    Simply great. It was much needed.
    One suggestion: enabling the poster to add a few words saying why he is suggesting this link.

    Here's an example that spontaneously came to my mind as I was about to contribute: I find AIT Themes' approach to templating - MVC style, using the Latte php framework- to be intriguing (and quite brilliant). If I just give the link I can't highlight this fact and the appeal is lost.

      Hm. That would be actually cool. However I do not know where would we show these given the tight layout of the home page?
