Votism: Turning Crowd Votes into Action!
We envision that workers and requesters can use social media to share the proposals they would like to see in the platform. They system would collect the proposals and then have people vote on them on a special site.
The system would then have mechanisms to make the proposals a reality. We considered people would use social media to share their proposal to not force individuals to have to be on another site to share their thoughts. Using social media might create a more participatory environment. However, to vote on the proposals people would need to be on the site (thus ensuring that only real workers + requesters vote)
Our system considers different types of voting schemes, not just majority rule. This allows workers +requestors to establish the dynamic they are most comfortable with (e.g., preferential voting)
