Today I would like to represent our small project named "UMumble" to You, and I suppose I will start from the beginning.
How did this idea start up?
One evening, surfing the Internet I came across an interesting project that combined a news portal with interestingly organized IT community. But why was it interesting to me?
At first sight, it was a common IT community voting for certain news items, thereby digging them up to the top (in seems to me that I have already seen it, for sure at digg.com). But getting deeper into it I noticed that its articles were quite professional although there was no editor at the resource. The articles were written by the community itself, and the community voted for them using special rating system. One could vote for anything including the users (thereby raising their positions at the rating table or banning them to write at the resource), topics, questions, comments etc. And such collective actions of the community prohibited (allowed for) certain activities .It was a sort of a role game. Considering that the resource was not English but quite, I discussed it and consulted with my colleagues and a decision to create a similar project was made. That's how "UMumble" appeared.
But You could ask, why we need digg.com or techcrunch.com (IT news) clone?
Each of the above resources lacks for something that another one has. And if we combine all the advantages and benefits of the both services and add some zests there could be a very fine resourse.
Though it all is just suppositions and assumptions, but they say hope springs eternal in the human breast.
So let’s keep hoping that everyone will be able to find something useful for him/her in our community. It can be the interesting articles or useful comments from the same IT specialists as You are, or You can get to the top of the rating table. But most of all we hope to find the persons that would like to share their experience in a certain areas.
So, I will close my introduction, I hope to continue it next time. I will report you about the progress of our community in future.
Further information can be read in the section Info of our website.
