Hello, do you remember this project?
Are you still intrested?
My past account was closed(i have provided personal info and i don't know that here is forbidden)
I want remember the project
We want to create a new online newspaper maked by users. We call it GrouPress.
[url removed, login to view] is a new way to re-thinking a newspaper.
Starting from the template of a traditional newspaper(our model is the [url removed, login to view] with Times New Roman font and a traditional newspaper template) the main idea is that all news spaces on the template can be filled by users that can become our journalists and our editorial office. Our users can post new articles and create a sort of " SOCIAL NEWSPAPER".
Who decide which articles are present in the Home page more then others?
It all depends by 2 principles
- More an article is rated more is its ranking
- More an articole is new more is its ranking: based on 1 day(so an article is news then another that is from the day before)
Based on the sum of these 2 principles articles are showed in the Home page or they are present in the others articles in archive
How our registred Journalist can gain money ?
During the registration process every Journalist have to give all personal information, a small biography of him, upload a personal picture and add his Adsense Ads Code. This is because we make that in each article page, in the bottom of the page, it ll be showed Adsense ads related to the Adsense code of the Journalist. In this way more the article is intresting, more is read, more click it can have, more Journalist can gain.
At Midnight a PDF edition
At Midnight, everyday, we ll produce a PDF version of the Newspaper. We have to send an email to all our registred users asking them to if they want to download the new edition of GrouPress. Download request a membership (paying with paypal and credit card) but the first week is for free:
After payed he can download the Newspaper (Home page and the pages of each topic with the first 10 high rated articles-full- for each topic) for 10$ x 1 months, 25$ x 3 months, 50$ for 6 months, 100$ for 1 year. With the membership he can also have access to our archive and doing searchs.
We have to think the site Template as a traditional newspaper also regarding the advertising. So you have to place in the template, as in a traditional newspaper, space for show ads. We have to add ADsense codes from the backend
