Newsstream is a way to see all the top stories from around the Internet related to the sites in our network. It combines feeds from hundreds of websites into one big stream of news. All stories initially start out in the pending queue where users, moderators, and admins can approve them.
Earn EXP points for approving stories, visiting another website's story, commenting on stories, and more.
In the pending page, click on the promote icon () next to the story.
The scores next to a story is a composite of various actions, commenting, views, click-throughs, and other factors.
In order for a story to become popular, it needs a threshold of users to promote it, an admin or moderator to promote it, or a high level user that’s under quota for the day to promote it.
Whatever you want so long as it fits the community.
In the sidebar are of Newsstream, there’s an "add your website" link. Fill out the form that appears after you click it.
Newsstream is the latest incarnation of Social News. We'll keep Social News around for a bit, but Newsstream is intended to replace Social News entirely.
Click on the action icon and a new window will appear. Then click on the report link and fill out the form.
On any given day there could be hundreds or thousands of stories scanned by Newsstream. The pending queue acts as a filter process so that only the stories worthy of being shown to the community will be seen.
Besides earning EXP points and possibly winning prizes, you're helping the community determine what's popular and good to read. Your choices matter!
Newsstream is a work in progress, just like everything we do. More features will be added later.
