(This is a continuation from this question) Since it seems there's enough interest in creating a blog roundup from different users with Torah Blogs, it seems worth figuring out what format it should have. These are some different possibilities, though it can also be a combination of them:
- Editors approve what articles get displayed on website. So if there are many submissions, only the best ones (according to the editors) will be displayed on the site.
- RSS feeds automatically collect all posts from approved blogs and display them on site chronologically, regardless of the quality of specific post. The important part is then just approving the high-quality blogs.
- Anyone can submit their posts and users can then vote up the best articles. The voting will be like SE, but the site itself will be more like Digg or Reddit. Could use either Pligg or Reddit software. The issue would be getting enough users to actually vote up best articles.
Perhaps the site can start with editor-approved feeds, but then transition to user-voted or editor-approved articles. RSS feeds can also remain a side-feature of the site.
