MATTER magazine lets readers vote on next investigative topic

MATTER, an online and PDF investigative magazine successfully funded on Kickstarter, allows readers to vote on the topic of future articles.

To simplify the process, MATTER’s voting system presents two similar yet distinct topics, but also provides a text box for submitting your own idea. If you can’t decide between the two, clicking the “I can’t decide” button asks you to explain why and offers a few canned options, such as not knowing enough about a topic and, what I’ve found myself clicking about half the time, “I like both ideas.”
