The real power of NewsWYC is the ability to interact anonymously (if you like). You can submit articles and comments, vote up, vote down, mark spam, etc, all without having to sign-up, or login.
Users of NewsWYC moderate and control articles as they flow through the system. You can vote an article up or down. Articles voted up move through the different views (rising, popular, voting, activity). Articles can also be marked as spam or offensive, and will be removed if enough users mark them, and/or they can be moderated out.
While on the NewsWYC web site you can use auto refresh, which will refresh the view's content every 'selected' seconds. This is very useful for watching for new news. It's also useful with the voting and/or activity views to watch what others are voting for and viewing.
Any article submitted to NewsWYC can be searched for based on title, tags, source, channel, and description. Search results can also be used as an RSS feed. So you are able to track articles of a certain type as they pertain to your search criteria.
NewsWYC provides RSS feeds for everything. All views (popular, rising, fresh, voting, activity), along with all comments, or comments for a specific article can be obtained via an RSS feed. An awesome feature of NewsWYC RSS feeds is the ability to use a search result as an RSS feed. Simply search for anything you like click on the RSS icon and get that search as a feed. Any future articles matching that search will be sent to you via the RSS feed.
