Should have a very clean and smooth layout that will feature videos and images. A banner on the top saying something like "Upload Your Video And Get Paid." We are going to pay users for uploading videos that get a lot of views or get published to the front page. The home page should make users want to watch and click on various videos to produce great on time site and page views.
Top header bar. At the top there should be a bar with links to other websites in our network of sites. LikeABoss is one of these sites. Lolblog.com is another. so is redneckrepairs.com
We want a user panel/area at the top right, with user menu, avatar or login/register if not logged in.
There should be a search field that is easy to spot, without taking to much focus. Also a link to show advanced search options and filters, that will show/hide more search options.
Different types of content to show:
videos, single photo, albums, channels, users, comments, discussions, articles, categories, searches.
We want to have sections showing top rated content, featured content, latest content most commented etc for all of the content categories described above where it seems logic.
There should also be room for advertisement on the page. preferably a 300x250 banner spot, a 160x600 skyscraper, and perhaps a 728x90 area.
A video or image or blog post page with Facebook Comments integrated, also with more videos section with thumbnails and titles to produce more clicks and time on site. Also, under each video/image there should be 4 large share icons, Facebook, Google +, Twitter and Pinterest. Here is a screen shot: http://www.lockys.com/jing/2014-05-02_0942.png
The Facebook Comments should be placed before the "More Videos/Images" section which will show a thumbnail layout with title of video/image.
