We are excited to announce the introduction of two new pages to MANteresting. The "Top Voted" and "Wall of Shame" pages are our latest and greatest feature and we think you are going to love it.

As you visit MANteresting you are, by default, taken to the "Everything" homepage. This shows all of the most recent activity users are nailing. Lots of complaints came our way about duplicate content. Sometimes the "Everything" page would get pretty frustrating to browse because the same funny picture was renailed seven different times within five minutes. This definitely takes away from the user experience.

Enter Bumping:
So Jesse and I wanted to think outside of the box. Instead of having our "popular" page be based off nothing other than the amount of times an image has been renailed, we wanted to implement a voting mechanism. As you hover over a nail this is now what you'll see...



Sexy is it not? If you like the nail and want to show your support, simply click the "bump it" button to push it higher on the "Top Voted" page. The nails with the highest number of bumps are displayed on top. Within a day or two you will be able to filter the content on the "Top Voted" page to view the most popular nails of the day, the last week, the last month, or all time. Until we get that filter coded in, be aware the "top voted" page is defaulted to all time bumps.

Bumping is so cool we did away with "liking" a nail, since they are almost the same thing. Don't worry though, we migrated all of the previous "like" data in to our bumping structure, so it's all good in the hood.

For Shame:
You'll also notice in addition to the Bump It! button there is a Shame It! button. This button is perfect for images that DON'T violate our terms of service, but are really disturbing and deserve to be publicaly shamed. Examples of nails that deserve shaming; anything Nickelback related, a boquet of flowers, kittens, and back boobs. Definitely shame all backboobs...



Think of the Shame It! button as a "dislike" button for Facebook. From time to time, we will be featuring the worst of the worst. We expect the Wall of Shame to be both utterly awesome and terribly disturbing. (note: please continue to use the "report" button for any inappopriate images that don't meet our TOS; porn, spam, kittens, etc). 

But wait, there's more...
In an attempt to further reduce the number of duplicate images appearing we are asking users to consider bumping an image instead of renailing it. If you see something really awesome, but don't necessarily need to attach it to one of your workbenches, "Bump it!" instead. On your user page (get there by clicking your username on the top right of menubar and selecting "my page"), you'll notice on the left hand side a new link that says "view your bump history". Every nail you have ever bumped is saved to this page for you...



Long story short, if you like a nail, bump it. If you like a nail, and want to categorize it for safe keeping, renail that sucker and bump the original.

The voting mechanism is brand new and we know we still got some work to do on it. Within a week or two here are some of the changes you can expect with it...

  • After clicking the bump it or shame it button, the number of bumps will immediately appear (currently you have to refresh page to see the change).

  • The current algorithm is simple: Bumps - Shames = Total. Not too long from now, however, it will look more like this: Bumps + Renails + Comments x Magic - Shames = Total.

  • The "Top Voted" page will likely become the default home page. This way new and old users alike will ensure they are seeing the most manteresting content on our site each time they visit.


That about wraps it up. We've spent a lot of time (and money) on this feature and we really do think it helps show you guys we are SOOOOO much more than just another "Pinterest copycat". We have a lot of plans for the bumping system down the road, but for now we are focusing our attention on the user experience. Smoother navigation and more efficient browsing here we come!

If you have any problems with bumping and would like to recommend some changes feel free to email us at dudes(at)MANteresting.com. We like hearing from you :)
