ratings, votes and so on
You can try the service on a special test site. Please! Use this playground for play with engine!
The service is available, for example, for Russian-speaking, or English-speaking users. During development, platforms for other languages are opened. On each subdomain, users and publications are separate. Please, help me to translate the welcome post for your language

The first thing that catches your eye is the high speed of page loads and aggressive optimization.
On the main page, the author you are subscribed to is displayed, and the number of new publications. The link leads to the first unread message, in chronological order, as in telegram. Typegram does not impose on you whom and when to read.
When someone mentions you in comments you will see it on the main page
The editor supports typing in markdown markup, with rich features and visual formatting. With the ability to make a post fullscreen, preview, autosave and other convenient “tidbits”
You may see three sections with strange names on the main page:
top (∧) mid (Ξ) btm (∨)
Yes, I love DotA (my dog’s name is Pudge, for example). And I’m sure that ratings are more about game mechanics/motivation than something seriously adequate. On typegram, content is divided into three parts, top, middle and bottom. All new articles go to farm the rating on the midline. Good articles go to the top. Bad articles fall to the bottom. Technically, the ranking system is copied from the ycombinator.
Rating of the article.
+ 5:1 -
Each user has 10 votes per day. You may spend them on both pluses and minuses for one article, or distribute them as you want.
The author sees both the negative and the positive reactions, separately.
Rating of the comments
Comments are positive only. I do not know why. Do not ask. I just want to give more opportunities for collecting feedback with different mechanics. And for comments, it is possible to give only one vote per comment. You have 10 votes for comments per day. One comment is one voice.
Each article may have a global tag. But only one. Be smart, then choose a tag for your article.
The project is free and open source. I always welcome comments and suggestions on github
