the alt Preview

In Uncategorized on October 30, 2006 at 8:33 pm

Time to pitch to you my concept for the alt, the next version of iSwitched, coming late ’06, early ’07. the alt will be based around the concept of discussion, making the forums the real heart of the operation. The main site will be more of the showcase of the best the community has to offer.

How is this going to work? First off, parts of the forums will be dedicated to reviews and opinion pieces about the Mac, iPod and iTunes, the Wii and the DS. When someone posts an article, they will add a poll to their post asking ” What do you think of this article?” with “It’s well done” and It’s not well done” answers. Other users will be able to post comments and vote, keeping in mind the question isn’t “Do you agree with this article?” but was it well written and though out. From time to time, I’ll, and any other moderator, be checking the posts. If we find the response to the article is positive enough, we’ll ask the original poster if they mind if we put their article on the main page. If they accept, I’ll add the article.

This concept might also be used in a “feature request” part of the forum. People post feature or message board requests and people comment and vote. Until it’s nothing I can’t do (and the “I can’t do category” is still pretty big) and people want it, I might add it.
