I hope this is not off-topic or something, but I have a question: what do you guys do when you have an idea but don't know anyone to talk with about it? and you clearly need an opinion from someone else, because it might be a bad idea, or you just need advices...?
I posted an answer a few hours ago. I got a notification (and its email) because Brant voted it up. Then I got another notification (and its email) because this second answer was posted. Note that watching the post is not enough to clear the notification, the (1) is still there. Also, I had the bad idea of improving my answer with an image, which automatically puts it in this "Under review" limbo. Clearly, a two liner starting with "+1" is more trustworthy.
@drachenstern Though it depends on what the subject is. If it's a serious conversation about a particular topic that SE already covers, it's likely there's a more suitable chat room (just because I like to drive up interest in using the other rooms appropriately :P)
well, I was just looking around for some software project ideas, and I thought... why not making a webapp that lets users post a software project idea, with the ability to upvote/downvote ideas ala stackoverflow? could this work?
Oh, @TimStone, meant to tell you. That isn't us. I've gotten several random sites telling me jQuery isn't defined. Something about 'c' not being defined from jQuery.min.js. I didn't get a chance to look into that more.
@AidenBell no well, I was just asking if it could be useful. I've seen this implemented on a few sites like wordpress.org and mybb.com for feature and mods/plugins ideas -- I was thinking about a more generic version of this concept
@Brainfeeder you're not really looking at a great proposal there, to my eyes. And the bad part is you're proposing a bit of software that lets people propose software and have the idea get up/downvoted, and the metaconcept is getting downvoted ... I say bad idea, but clearly you're onto something
@JustinjjnguyNelson the downloadable election data will be available moments after the election is over so you will be able to run the results yourself using OpenSTV - the official announcement of winners will come shortly after we verify that data
