Abstract/Artist Statement

The goal of my project is to design and create a website where users can post and share media content. Such content includes images, news stories, videos, and links to external websites. While many such websites already exist, the goal of this project is to take a variety of features from other such sites and combine the best features into one website. Anonymous posting is a prominent feature; users will not have to create any account before posting content or comments. Users will also be able to vote on content, with a positive vote ratio providing greater visibility, and a negative vote ratio resulting in poor visibility or even deletion. Content visibility will also be affected by other factors, such as view count and time of creation. Such features attempt to allow for well received content to be visible for a short period of time, before making way for new content.
