New Feature: Link Exchange

Another day, another new feature at the Awesome Theory! Lately it seems that lots of users are whining about needing more mullets. Well, this feature will finally offer a way to potentially get a continuous stream of mullets stemming from a single action. The Awesome Theory Link Exchange is here!

Here is how it works: You submit your best links and then other users will rate them. There is a catch, however. Each time another user rates your link as Awesome, you will gain mullets. Each time another user rates it as stupid, you will gain stupid points. Who actually submitted each link is hidden to encourage you to vote based on the link rather than on the user. The ratings work similar to the voting section.

In the image above, the top link has a visible rating of 4 Ninjas, which translates to amazingly awesome. You will see the rating if either you submitted the link or you have already voted on it. You cannot vote on your own links. The second link shows the rating block. A bigger pink elephant means more stupid and a bigger ninja means more awesome. Rate each link according to how worthwhile the linked site was to visit. So even if the target site was very stupid, you should still rate it as awesome if you thought it was funny or worth checking out.

The first block of links is made up of the last 10 that were submitted. The next block shows the top 10 overall by default, but you can restrict it to specific categories if you wish. The last block of links if where you can see up to 10 links that you are eligible to rate that you have not rated.

In this area, you will also see a short description of the link if the submitter entered one (it is optional). Links are displayed here at random, so a refresh of the page will get you new links, as will rating one of them.

In keeping with the family-friendly nature of this site, there are restriction on the type of links you can submit. Links that point to the floowing are prohibited: Pornography, excessive vulgarity, overtly crude, obscene, or offensive material, spam, or links to sites that will earn you benefits for people visiting them. If a link violates these rules or is broken, click the report link next to it and it will be taken off the list until it is checked out by an Awesome Theory staff member.

So go and submit your links and watch the mullets roll in as other members rate them. Also, rate the links of others so we can find out what the most awesome sites on the Internet are.

UPDATE 1/20/2008 - Links put in the stupid section are the opposite of the other sections. If a link in the stupid section gets rated stupid, the submitter will get mullets and if it is rated awesome, the submitter will get stupid points.
