Postwaves’ Voting System

Let's face it, even if we really care, most of us are too busy and don't have the time to join even one more online group.

Well, good news. Postwaves makes online groups 100x more productive, so you can have the time to share and discover more of the things you care about, without being bombarded by trolls, spam, and bad post after bad post.

It’s all about the voting system, which allows the best content to rise to the surface. Here are 3 key differences between Postwaves’ voting system and other online networks:


Other Online Networks

New posts are not immediately visible, keeping your feed free of clutter.

All posts are immediately visible, clogging your feed and wasting your time.

Each post will be approved by other group members, ensuring quality.

Everything is published, even if the content is terrible.

You get to be a part of the screening process by anonymously voting on posts.

You have no choice in what goes on your feed, so you’re forced to sort through endless posts.


These voting differences may seem small, but they have a huge effect on the quality and productivity of your group. Here's how:

  1. It fosters teamwork. Everyone shares the load of filtering out distraction. It's easy on everyone. All it takes is a few clicks, and you've done your share.
  2. It saves time. Harnessing teamwork dramatically reduces the time you need to spend digging through content to find good posts that warrant your attention.
  3. It leads to stellar content. Thanks to this simple, team-oriented streaming process, your group's knowledge combines quicker and good ideas flow freely. It's powerful stuff.
  4. Cheating is impossible. You'll never have to worry about other users liking, sharing, and upvoting their own posts from multiple accounts



The diagram below illustrates Postwaves voting system in detail:




To get a bit more technical, here's how it works:

  1. A user submits a link, idea, response, or post to an interest group.
  2. Postwaves sends the submission to a small group of "gatekeepers". These are randomly selected people within your group
  3. The "gatekeepers" vote up or down on the submission.
  4. If that submission receives a 50% approval rating or higher by the "gatekeepers", it becomes public for the whole group to see.

Note: The sample size is big enough to reflect the collective best interest of the group. We've researched this, and it's true.
