I`ve been lurking in the shadows here at StartupNation for the last six months and have taken a lot of great advice from this site. I have just recently joined the web startup game. It`s been a long and arduous journey up to this point, and this is only the beginning. The site is in beta (maybe more appropriately alpha?) and its feature set is very basic. But, we have a lot of features planned.
The site is http://pollsit.com/
It`s a site that allows you to create your own polls and then discuss the topic related to the polls. It`s not really meant for people to create polls that ask "Do you like my red dress or my blue dress?" and then provide a link to both of the dresses. Rather, I want people to create polls that ask "Do you feel that the economic stimulus package will help the economy?" and then discuss this topic in the comment section. Both types of polls are allowed, I just want the content to have substance. Maybe both types should be encouraged? You can also post the polls on your own website or Myspace page if you like. We also plan on incorporating a social element to the site.
The great web entrepreneurs say to "Release early, Release often." So that is exactly what we are doing.
Anyways, hit me hard with your criticism.
