Sphinn just announced they will remove the voting functionality from the website. Now… A crowdsourcing website without voting?? What’s the point?? In this blog post I am angry and give my pointers to what I think went wrong.
Sphinn removes the foundation that they’ve built their brand on. It is the users that build Sphinn with their content every day. Sphinn in itself hasn’t built anything of value other than a platform for publishing. How can they reasonably claim to know better than their users what is quality and what is not quality?
