So anyway, here`s my site that I thought of about a month ago or so, it`s called http://sayproject.com/ (codename). I`d appreciate it a lot if you visited, signed up, gave my some feedback, or even utilized it if you so please.
The basic idea behind the site can be gleaned from the home page, or the about page...http://sayproject.com/contento.php?page=About
My idea is to create a database of thoughts created by users that they can interact with. It`s very functional in terms of search, allowing users to search by keywords via tags, and also search the entire body of the post. By searching multiple tags, the user can really refine their search to find exactly what they`re looking for. I believe this will create a useful tool in terms of people wishing to discuss/read what others are saying about anything... the movie that just came out, the concert they just saw (where they saw it), the game they just went to whatever... and of course also issues of the past and present, news of the past and present etc. etc. etc.
The right field of the site has a display which shows the most popular tags of the last hour... with the most popular topics displaying in sequentally larger font. I believe this will provide a good launching pad in terms of people just wishing to see what topics of the moment are buzzing the most, and reading what people are saying about them, or joining in the discussion themselves.
I`ve provided the function which allows users to view everything any other user on the site has said, and broken this into the two relevent categories, thoughts and replies.
This is an extremely basic first release, and I have a lot of ideas about where to take the site, and am excited about where I could take it and the utility it could provide if enough people get involved and join up. I feel like this one of those sites where its like trying to get a semi started to roll down a hill by just pushing it... I feel like it will be extremely hard to get going, but once it does, hopefully its momentum will help make it become a useful site. Because as it stands, it`s really a blank canvas... I personally believe with a ton of potential, but who knows.
So there it is. I thought it was worth building, putting it out there, seeing how people react to it. So thanks again, I appreciate your feedback, and hope you check it out and join up, go ahead start using it! :)
I want to know, if I can live with what I know. And only that.
