Outbounding = Community-driven website; members curate excellent travel content to share with new audiences across the web.

Here's how it works: Outbounding uses Twitter to register and create accounts. Your Twitter handle will be your username on Outbounding and registration/login will enable you to share content, post comments and create/edit your Outbounding profile.

Outbounding resembles Reddit in that anyone can submit quality features and the best are voted up (upvoted!) by members. There's also the Ask Me Anything Q&A sessions.

What we like best: Very easy to tweet a beloved travel feature, podcast, slideshare presentation. We love the quality of the comments. First rate! Outbounding affirms the value of being generous. See Outbounding's very own Guideline #2: "The community works best when we’re sharing great content from across the web, not just our own material. Please don’t limit yourself to posting your own stuff, we’d also like to know what other content you’re finding inspiring and influential wherever it may be published."

On our wishlist: An #Outbounding for environmental journalism

    Manifesto

    The Outbounding Manifesto

    On the wishlist:
    We'd love to be able to edit the text a bit after submitting a link or comments
    Is it possible to embed the rss from topics?
    Can you explain the karma points?

    A few words about Karma

    Members earn karma points by submitting strong content that the rest of the community appreciates. The more content you submit, from diverse domains (not just your own), which generates more votes and comments, the more karma points you earn.

    In turn karma gradually increases your voting weight. Not by a huge amount, but just enough to reward members who play a positive role in the community and give them more weight relatively to those who only ever submit their own content, or weak content.

    Essentially it's the algorithm's way of reinforcing positive behaviour and making the role of our editors and regular community members much easier.

    Guidelines

    Please keep the following in mind when submitting, voting or commenting on OutBounding.org:

    #1 SUBMIT ONLY THE BEST
    This is a place to submit the few excellent pieces of travel content that rise above the usual and the average. We aim to showcase content that is practical, useful, original, creative or which takes an unusual angle on something familiar. Please support us in that quest!

    #2 AND NOT (JUST) YOUR OWN
    The community works best when we’re sharing great content from across the web, not just our own material. Please don’t limit yourself to posting your own stuff, we’d also like to know what other content you’re finding inspiring and influential wherever it may be published.

    #3 ZERO SPAM
    OutBounding.org is a labor of love and our editors are all volunteers. For this reason we take a zero tolerance policy to spam. Members that abuse the community will be banned without warning.

    #4 COURTESY COUNTS
    Please respect our community when writing a comment, giving a response or interacting with your fellow members. Differing opinions and constructive criticism are welcome. Anger, insults and derogatory language are not tolerated.
