What is Subbmitt?
Subbmitt is a social news/blogging/bookmark site that allows you to post links to articles, questions, photos, videos or documents. You can also post original content or even use it for blogging. It is a great place to read and share articles, photos or videos. If you see an article that you want to share with your friends, why not share it with the world too? On other sites, your article will make it to a queue and may or may not even be seen. On Subbmitt, all articles make it to the frontpage so you are not wasting time by submitting them.

Simple Submission Process
We've made the process of submitting articles easy and simple without all of the hassles found on many similar sites. You don't have to sign up or even be logged in and the security codes are actually readable. Imagine that! That same philosophy has also been applied to the rest of this website too. We've streamlined, tossed out and then simplified some more. You will find that we've eliminated most of the evils that you are used to on other sites. Using Subbmitt will be a breath of fresh air for you, so enjoy.
is interested in articles that you want to share with the world. You can submit articles containing photos, videos or new stories from any site you want. You can submit
articles without even signing up if you want. Articles are sent to our queue where we quickly approve or disapprove them. We only disapprove SPAM or anything deemed illegal. We have various categories you can choose from. There is a Not Safe For Work (NSFW) category so use that for gory/graphic pictures, racy photos and any other content you wouldn't want your coworkers/parents seeing.
Any articles or links offering products for sale is considered as SPAM and will be deleted. Examples include links
directly to your product store page or links to individual items for sale.
Subbmitt Blogging / Channel
Subbmitt also allows you to blog or create your own news channel. Once you sign up, you can start posting articles under your user name. Your entries / articles will make it to our front page and are accessible directly by http://www.subbmitt.com/yourusername
On the internet, democracy is overrated. It's nearly impossible to get a story on the front page of other social news sites that rate, or rank stories based solely on user votes. A strict one vote approach fails to account for the douche bag factor of those who band together and vote for the same article just to move it to the front page. At Subbmitt, we counter that by giving everyone their fair webtime, if the article is deemed worthy. This approach means that you won't waste your time posting articles that no one will ever see. All articles will make it to the front page because we rotate articles from the queue to the front page every two minutes. This keeps our website from becoming stale and boring unlike many other sites. Who wants to see the same old stories all day long? Not us.
What about spam? To prevent against spam posts, the queues are monitored and spam posts are deleted. You can also mark an article as spam. After enough user spam notifications are received, the article will automatically be reviewed and the appropriate action taken.
