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 be after the social interactions rather than the monetary compensations. The social activities will allow people to bond with their fellow co-workers and gain social capital.
We propose to create automatic methods that turn these tasks into fun social events, where workers & requestors can learn from each other, and build friendships. 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 also listening to the same music, chatting, laughing and having a blast! :)
