indy100 isn't like most news sites. That list of stories, numbered from 1 to 100? The order isn't set by us - it's not a list of what our editors think is important. The article at No 1 isn't our top story, it's your top story. The journalists at indy100 write all the articles, devise all the quizzes, and process all the data as maps and charts, but the readers are the ones with the real power.
See the red 'upvote' button on each article? Click it to make it green and you'll help to send the story to the top of the list. If you share the story, read it, or post a comment, up it rises. Why? Because we are putting you in charge.
Because indy100 is from The Independent you can still trust us to take our facts very seriously (even the funny ones). Some of the stories will have been inspired by the brilliant work in The Independent. Most will be from the crack team of indy100 journalists.
Either way, you can trust it - spend a few minutes on the site, whether clicking on the stories in the list or just scrolling down from one article straight into another, and you'll know what's happening in the world - good news and bad. It's serious stuff. You just don't always have to be so serious about it.
