May 22nd 2016Clarification of Rules

Hey Amiriters,

We hope you are having a warm and wonderful May!

This notice is just to clarify the rules regarding anonymous posting on Amirite.

The rules do allow for anonymous posting as they have done since the beginning of Amirite.

Users may post as many posts they would like anonymously or with their screen name showing - this is up to the user and we value freedom of expression and freedom of speech. All users have the choice how they post and that's up to the individual.

 Posting anonymous questions or opinions repeatedly is permitted as long as the posts abide by the rules. 

Many sites permit anonymous posting and anonymous comments. We have taken the balanced approach and disabled anonymous comments, but permitted anonymous posting.

We feel this is fair since many users enjoy posting without their names being attached to the question, for example, if its a personal question or sensitive topic or someone wanting netural feedback in responses.

Any posts, however, that breach the rules such as offensive posts or posting with the same link will be swiftly removed as per our Terms of service.

Repeatedly posting the same question is not permitted either, however, posting on the same topic is permitted.

All senior team leaders can view who is posting anonymously as a valid and active account is required to post anonymously. If your account is found to be a sock account action will be taken.

Only the very best posts are selected by our moderator team for the homepage, irrespective of whether they are anonymous or with a username showing (similar to famous thoughts too).

All the best,

 

The Amirite Team

May 13th 2016Send our Senior Moderator any question!

If you have recently joined Amirite or even taken a break and would like to ask our Senior Lead Moderator James any question he will be available to answer your questions for the next 48 hours! 

Just sign into your account and shoot your questions!

The question could be about how to use Amirite, how to change your profile bio, any concerns you have or what he had for lunch!

If you have been suspended previously you can ask a friend to message on behalf of you and we can take a look into your account and circumstances and re-activate you if appropriate.

You can expect a reply within 12 hours max!

We aim to keep Amirite as friendly and open as possible!

Every Opinion Matters!

 

Best,

 

The Amirite Team

 

Apr 20th 2016Invite a friend Day!

Dear Amirite Users,

On Sunday 1st May we will be hosting one of our Amirite's Invite a friend day!

For those of you not familiar, users traditionally will invite their friends or anyone over the internet to try out Amirite.

The person who has managed to get the most users to sign up (from the 21st April to 12am EST on the 2nd May) via their referal link will be able to choose post of the day with whatever post they would like on the homepage first position whether it be your own post or you can choose a friends!

Post of the day posts generally receive 1000% more visibility than regular posts so you can use this opportunity to spread a message, ask a question or whatever you would like thats on your mind!

To share your referall link you can go to your settings section and copy and paste the link  wherever you would like on the web e.g

 

http://www.amirite.com/ref/USERNAME

 

It will show up automatically on our system as to how many people have signed up from your link.

If you have any questions feel free to ask a senior mod!

 

Good examples as to whether to post your referall link are:

Reddit, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Youtube, Blog comments, Forum comments, online chats, links from your own blog or website, whatsapp, whatsapp groups, 4chan, yahoo groups, and email!

Remember anyone who signs up via your link counts! Only 1 person per link though - so no abusing the sign up process please!

 

Happy Sharing!

Jun 21st 2013All The Latest Goings On

Hey Amiriters!

 

June is nearly up and we have been extremely busy behind the scenes!

 

As many of you know this month we moved to a much quicker server to reduce the slowness of the site and so far we have noticed dramatic improvements across many areas of the site! The time to submit posts has become much quicker and navigating different areas of the site has become much easier too!

 

In other news we have been busy bees in the topics section and added thousands of new topics! Also check out the new topics page design: http://www.amirite.com/topics. In addition to adding the new topics we have spent two months adding millions of keywords to the topics! Now it should be extremely simple to add a few topics to your post and help keep Amirite organized! 

 

We have also been working on developing our Youtube channel and been interviewing some pretty cool people and our in house video designers have been making some pretty cool vids too! Check them out here: http://www.youtube.com/amiriteofficial

 

Our development team has worked extremely hard and credit should go to them! Some notable new features include:

 

We have updated our widgets section: http://www.amirite.com/widgets/  Now you can make custom polls and add them to your site, blog and forum!

Adding images around the site and submission areas has become extremely simple. We have teamed up with Google images and Flickr to bring you the best images on the web which automatically search based on your search!

We have added live streams of your 'Recent Activity' to your profiles and now you can also see your 'Followers' activity too. Get following now if you haven't followed your friends until now!

We have also made some design changes across the site to make everything look more modern and sleek.

Our Facebook team have been working hard on working with the Facebook API's -so if you haven't already make sure you connect your FB account now (you even get an achievement for this!)

We have added an 'Explanation' area under all posts, where OP's can go into more detail about what their post means and the context around it!

Navigation on the Just In page to Opinions, Questions or ALL is now possible - many users asked for this,

A new special voting meter bar has been added under all posts so you can see instantly what people are leaning towards!

 

We are working very hard on adding some new aspects to Amirite over the coming months and will of course keep you updated!

 

Best,

Feb 28th 2013Welcome to the News Section!

Welcome to the new News Section!

 

By popular demand we have finally removed the wibiya announcement bar and created our new, custom news feature! (Apologies as we know this was long over-due!)

Here we will update you on all the goings-on at Amirite and new features too,

Our latest feature is the 'link' feature - here you can post your opinion on any link whether it be an article, video or picture! We have planned this feature for a while now and finally got round to adding it! This will also allow you to upload your own videos and help them go viral!

In addition we have made adding images easier - now you can just copy the exact image url and the image will appear!

We have also been working on making Amirite users more connected with each other. Now you can add more info to your profiles and answer certain questions to find similar users e.g favourite places, quotes etc In addition you can upload multiple pictures and avatars!

Finally we have spent a considerable time working on chat. Now private messaging is a whole lot easier and you can chat using the chat icon in the bottom right of your screens. You can add followers to chat too and also invite your friends from facebook, twitter and other networks!

You will soon be able to chat via the app and touch sites too,

One of our latest features enables everyone to save posts for later in your draft section under your username. In addition you can publish posts at a set time if you are busy or asleep or want to maximise exposure,

Finally you can now categorise posts by dragging them into certain areas in your profile and create custom categories,

We have many exciting features planned and will keep you updated!

Best,

The Amirite Team
