There are currently four different versions of amirite. All display the same content but are targeted at different devices. On the main site there is the concept of the 'Home Page' and the 'Just In' page. When an opinion is posted it becomes visible on the Just In page immediately (as well as on the profile of the user who posted it, in any Topics it was added to and in the search). Users have the option to vote for a post to be on the home page. If a post reaches a configurable number of home page votes it goes into a queue to appear on the home page. A post selected to be a Post of the day or POTD is highly sort after and many users strive to achieve this. If selected their opinion can be broadcast all around the world and even be quoted by news agencies, and websites. Amirite has a team of moderators and anyone can apply to be a moderator by filling in the application form on their website
