Challenge: There is a need to have tasks improved and polished before they are shown on the site alive. However, it can become expensive to incorporate this verification step.

Proposal: We propose to turn these verification tasks into social activities, that people will do pro-bono.
People will do the tasks for free because they will have the perception that they are bonding with their fellow co-workers and gaining social capital.
We propose to create automatic methods that turn these tasks into fun social events, where workers & requestors can learn from each other, build friendships, and bond. For instance, the system might recommend for all people who want their tasks to be verified to join a "midnight verification party!" People will all be online at the same to review each others tasks, while listening to the same music, chatting, laughing and having fun :)
