Just thought I'd let you know about a new web site that I have been working on. It was launched yesterday.


Upvote / Downvote - http://upvoting.com/


The idea behind the site is that you can use Twitter to vote on topics. :)


For those that have heard about Reddit it works in a similar way. However you don’t need to login or register, or provide any personal details to participate, all you need is the ability to send a tweet.


A couple of sample topics...


- Should Scotland be an independent country? - http://upvoting.com/vote/322

  (tweet: "@upvoting vote322" for yes; tweet: "@downvoting vote322" for no)


- Standardise the Colours of Crisp Packets - http://upvoting.com/vote/302


You are welcome to create your own topics. I'm sure there are lots of possibilities for topics on local issues, such as the new Chinese proposals for Crystal Palace Park or whether there is public support for the Crystal Palace Pound local currency. There are also options for supporting charities and earning money on topics that you create.


I hope you enjoy using http://upvoting.com/ - feel free to ask me any questions if you have any.

Hi James, good to see the grandaddy of VN on the forum for a fleeting post  :) Upvote looks interesting, thanks for sharing. Quite a few of us tweet - might be good to use for the cinema campaign too as we enter battle no.2 in the fight to prevent the loss of the D2 planning use of 25 Church Road.

You are welcome to use it for the cinema campaign. The launch has gone well and I'm looking forward to seeing more people using it. A few months ago we were running some stress tests on the server by getting it to track X-Factor and Strictly tweets in realtime. Peak load was about an hour into the shows at around 7 tweets per second!


The bit I like best about Upvote / Downvote is all you need to do is tweet... no annoying login or registration, just jump right in. No personal data involved either so it's good on the data security angle too. The voting format can be as simple as "@upvoting vote322", so you can encourage feedback by putting that on a flyer, even a radio interview.


If you create your own topic you can also have a link back to your own web site, so it can generate web visitors for you too.
