2. Weigh in A partial screenshot of the vote controls of a vox Respond to voxes proposed by others with the Endorse and Deny buttons. Voxes with more endorsements than denials are shown on the bloc's Home page. The more endorsements, the more space they are given.
3. Optional: Propose a vox A partial screenshot of bloc Proposals and >Mentions page, emphasizing the Propose button in the top-right corner. Propose your own statements of the bloc sentiment, by clicking at the top of their Proposals & >Mentions pages. Mention other blocs with the >, e.g. ">kitten-rights-bloc".

Paint the big picture... The Front Page gives a concise look at the most important things happening on Blocvox right now: new voxes backed strongly by the members of their blocs. The actions of every individual across the site contribute to its ever-changing shape.

...and a self-portrait. The basis of Blocvox is the individual. Each has their own Profile Page, which shows all of the voxes they've either proposed or endorsed. Blocvox also has a simple point system to recognize individual initiative.

You can also engage other blocs you're not a member of, to
build bridges of solidarity.
(Or to burn them.) Be a participant in conversations between whole groups, by proposing voxes in reply to ones from other blocs! Start by clicking in the Reply section of a vox's Detail page.
