What is Demolistic?
Demolistic is a integrated list-building, voting, and discussion/forum service.
Demolistic allows you to quickly create ranked lists of anything: people, places, events, jokes, concepts, etc. The subject is completely up to you. After you've created a list, other people can choose to make their own version of your list, reordering your entires, removing other entries, and adding new entries. When this happens, Demolistic will calculate the demolist - a consensus list - based on evenyone's entries.
A Quick Example
A user, Ava, likes Apples. Ava creates a new list titled, "Most delicious tasting apples." Ava adds three types of apples to his list:
Ava's List 1. Golden delicious 2. Macintosh 3. Gala
Another user, Dan, see's Ava's list, but disagrees with what Ava put on the list. Dan creates a new copy of the list, and changes it:
Dan's List 1. Macintosh 2. Gala 3. Granny Smith 4. Fuji
Demolistic will now calculate a demolistic for the the topic, "Most delicious tasting apples," based on the preferences of Ava and Dan. This list would look something like this:
Demolist (based on consensus) 1. Macintosh 2. Gala 3. Golden delicious 4. Granny Smith 5. Fuji
Every list topic has a discussion board. The initial comments on a discussion board are copied from users' lists, and grouped by entry. For example, I add Golden delicious apples to my list, and then comment "I love golden delicious apples because they're cheap and stay ripe a long time." On the discussion board, my comment will appear under the topic "Golden delicious." Other users can view my thoughts and respond accordingly.
