Hey guys, I used to be a frequent poster here but do not contribute as much these days because of new schedule and prioritities.
I've always been really into sports forums but I feel they're all antiquated, unreliable, moderated unfairly, and unorganized. I especially hate the ads too.
I'm working on a platform where you can add all your teams to one page and manage all of your conversations (regardless of which team you root for) on one site. Some key things I'm working on:
1) The more valuable your contributions are in the eyes of your audience, the more premium space you get for other fans to read your insights and opinions.
2) Moderation is done by the community.
3) Each post can be voted up or down, flagged, etc.
4) There would definitely be a mobile app/mobile site so you can instantly start threads and comment without having to wait for an entire newspaper site to load.
Wanted to get your thoughts overall. Any feedback is appreciated!
