An awesome new site launched last month that was designed and built here in Vancouver and encompasses what BC is often known for, extreme sports. Stoked.Com is a video and photo sharing platform for extreme sports that takes it one step further. On top of being able to link and share photos and videos through your personal login account one can add friends, send messages, and receive notifications regarding content they have posted, such as comments on photos and videos. The site also implements a point and ranking system that allows users to rack up points for their contributions, which then ranks them against other users. The points can later be redeemed in giveaways and contests.
Stoked was created by UBC computer science alum Dave Lawton and is the rebranded, redesigned version of a previous site called SuperStoker.Com, also created and run by Lawton. Although Stoked is new, the popularity of SuperStoker.Com and its 4 years running previous to the Stoked launch, has created a huge fan base which in turn has created a ton of great content.
