To both find stuff you normally wouldn’t and to help search for and receive the best of these interesting reads.
Every reader plays two parts in this system. First, they get random suggestions for interesting reads. Then for every random unrated article they read and rate the also get a one for one credit, and can read an article that was randomly chosen but already highly rated by other readers. Of course, they can rate such an article too – but the more people already read and rated that article, the smaller the credit they get for that. You only get full credit for unrated articles. This way you both help filter the best reads for others and get the best reads from others.

A marketplace or platform for people to publish ads they create for their favorite brands. These can be in any form or size, text, image, video, etc. A brand can ask for ads, create competitions, offer prizes, etc., or just pick and choose from ads that people just made without any brand initiation. Brands choose ads to use in their campaigns and can even use all the ads as content.
