Introducing FM Network

The proof of promoting the true FM spirit

News - Introducing FM Network
You run or read another FM fansite or blog? Great! You can now share your best or favorite articles on FM Network! I know what you're thinking... "Ow, ow, ow. Wait! Are you crazy? You mean you're going to share traffic with other fansites?" Well, yes!


Honestly, I see no rivalries here. We are already sharing the best downloads around the FM scene, we wish to extend this to include articles now. We are introducing a new section where members can suggest articles in a digg fashion.

How is this going to work?

This is a lot like digg really, though instead of diggs we have hits. As a member, you contribute to the community by sharing, visiting and discussing the articles that appeal to you.

Discover and Share
Submit your favorites. Find an article online and submit it to FM Network. Your submission will appear as soon as an admin or moderator approves it, and then other members can find it and, if they like it, go to the article.
A RSS feed of the network articles should become available in the near future.

Visit
Visiting the articles that you like best, you contribute to the popularity of any given item.
Let your friends know about the stories that you suggest, so they can come and visit them too. The more hits an article receives, the higher it will climb on our "most popular articles" later on.

Discuss
Comment. Share your opinions by commenting on those articles, helping a fellow visitor decide whether the article is worth visiting or not.

Technically, when you are on the suggestion form, you need to provide the article's title, a short description, article's URL, the site's name, a picture for the article (if possible) and a full description.

Once the article has been approved to appear on the network page, the title when clicked will go directly to the original article (external), while the thumbnail and short description which are also linked will go to full description page (internal).
