This website lets you post your short stories online where you get your own page for exposure and lets readers rank them. It says it's free and that publishers and editors get on their and you might get picked up.

We do not require exclusive use of your submission - in fact, our comments system and author pages provide not only a focus for readers and reader feedback, but also a point for other publishers to contact you.

Just wondering what you think?

I don't doubt some publishers do go on sites like that looking for authors.

Not any publishers I'd be interested in hearing from, but I have no doubt vanity publishers troll places like that looking for authors to approach to sell their services to.

thanks, I'm just thinking. I can't find any sci-fi/fantasy mags at Bookstores except for Asimov, Real of Fantasy. Just wondering if all short stories are going to the web.

There are 38 markets listed at Duotrope, if you limit it to open SF print publications with payments semi-pro and up.

Any updates on this market? They appear to offer good rates, but I'm not even sure if the market is outdated as there are no dates on anything.

It doesn't appear to me to be a display site like Wattpad, but rather a short story site that pays for short stories.

If you don't require print publication, Tor.com pays very competitive rates, and you get a nice illustration.
