That out of the way, here goes.
A site where people can post ideas that they have had for web/software/multimedia projects. The goal is the development of ideas and concepts, and the bringing together of developers and "idea guys".
1. Ideas guys: People who have a good idea for a project but dont have the time, motivation or technical skills to pull it off.
2. Developers: Who have said skills, time etc but cannot think of a project on which to spend them.
- Ranks for active members - eg Top 5 Ideas Men, Top 5 Developers etc, Most Popular Idea etc
- Comments system for ideas refinement
- Ability for developers to register interest for a project
- Display the status of picked up projects
- If the project is picked up and becomes successful, advertising links to the project's website
What it is not
- Sourceforge - No project management here - just ideas
- GetACoder - or any other freelancing site
- A general discussion forum - Users will be limited to posting and commenting on project ideas only
Would any of you guys utilise such a system ?
Do you think it would work ?
Can you see any flaws in my concept ?
Is there already a site out there for this ?
Any opinions would be appreciated
