I´m new to this forum and are looking for some initial feedback on an idea and a site.
The name: www.scartoon.com (coming more soon...)
The site: I want to build a site for online cartoons with community generated content in form of users submitted cartoon strips. The strips could be uploaded by users and viewed free on the site. There would be contextual adds aggregated by a suitable company.
Soo my question is if anyone has seen this already out on the web? I haven´t found it but I can´t say I´ve been everywhere.
Secondly could this be developed into a good idea that could attract users. Imagine the "normal" set of functionalities such as uploading your own cartoons via a easy to use interface, community ratings, sending links to friends, and the option to give specific feedback on the drawing techniques etc. Users could subscribe to certain artists strips etc...
For what I have seen cartoons is one area of media that has been left out of the internet so far in contrast to newspapers etc.
Also I´m not a coder myself so where should I turn my head and checkbook for feasability studies and cost estimates in the first place?
Appreciate all feedback.
Any feedback on my site www.scartoon.com is valuable. Don´t be afraid to critisize me.
