Hello, I am an ardent conspiracy researcher/fact checker. I believe we are on the cusp of a great conscious awakening of humanity. From years of strenuous research I have comprised a list of hundreds of legitimate conspiracies that are routinely suffocated or muddied with disinformation. I've also monitored the conspiracy community and observed its flourishing growth and attraction. Most people want to learn the truths behind these conspiracies, but either lack the time or passion to sift through the disinformation.
Therefore, I want to create a conspiracy based open source fact checking/research news platform that interconnects theories, proof, and evidence using an easy to navigate, compartmentalized interface. The main attraction to the site that we'll advertise for is the "conspiracy archives or database". There will be a link on the top menu that directs you to a page with all the conspiracies listed out categorically: main, political, scientific, spiritual, social etc which can then be broken down into other categories if need be, or, obviously, there will be an option to just search for a specific conspiracy as well. Each conspiracy will have its own page, with all learning styles available because a lot of conspiracies contain a plethora of information necessary to paint the whole picture. So there will be video options, podcast options, or just articles submitted by our team or other users (perhaps a widget of some kind with buttons to "read" "watch" or "listen"). Below all that will be the forum section which will need to be moderated because here's where the social media integration kicks in.... on each conspiracy page will be a Truth meter (similar to snopes), but instead of a private company deciding what is and isn't conspiracy, we give that power to the people. Users will need to make a simple email based account in order to vote on each conspiracy's validity. They will also be able to debate in the forums, post their own conspiracies, or post new evidence to conspiracies to be validated by our team or other users. If evidence posted to a conspiracy by a user is indeed relevant and factual, their post will be added to the official list of evidence and displayed as an achievement on their profile page. Also users can rate other users profiles based on the accuracy of whatever articles/videos/claims they make. This creates an opportunity for anyone who wants to prove themselves as a reputable beacon of information to become certified through this site, by choice of the people, and precise recommendation from our site as an unbiased organization. This will make it easier for people to build a following and redirect the traffic they generate through this site, to their other social media platforms. Think of it almost like Reddit or steemit style where users can vote up new conspiracies, evidence, articles, videos etc. We can feature the hottest content on the front page with breaking news and other tantalizing widgets, further giving people an opportunity to increase their traffic and relevance as a contributor to truth. The goal is to cultivate a mentality that every journalist, reporter, etc. will feel obligated to create an account with us to verify their credibility to the people, instead of hiding behind their organization or hoping everyone forgets after publication of faulty content that is poorly researched or simply, fake news. If established this WILL bring journalistic integrity back to the media, and be a preliminary step towards a world where truth and fake news are more conveniently and accurately dissected and authenticated.
I've seen the community beg for a site like this and I'm honestly shocked one has not already been created. The target market is proliferating everyday, but needs one place to congregate and avoid censorship. Also, have ideas to integrate blockchain and introduce a cyptocurrency based off a rewards system for successful research, but that can be discussed at a later time.
