    but I can't trust everyone here not to steal the idea before I can develop it, so :hs:

    and then a few times after I have started to develop something, I find a similar site that does the same thing :hs:

    we need a sub-sub-forum of trusted members :o

    Everybody has ideas, it all comes down to execution. Just because you thought of YouTube doesn't mean it's going to be a hit...

    Would you go to a pharmaceutical convention and tell everyone you 'think' you have a cure for cancer but you're not sure so you want to run it by them all?

    You can't come in here with ideas and not expect someone to jump on it...Not saying that I personally would, but morals aren't exactly the strong point of the OT user base.

    If you think you have a cure for cancer, I'd imagine there are ways through the patent office or FDA or AMA to find out if someone has already done the exact same thing. There's no decent directory listing of web sites to search when you think you've come up with something original and want to see if no one else has done it. I have 2 options: 1) Google (and I know first hand that the results from this are iffy) 2) ask OT and risk someone else developing the site before I even get a reply to the thread.

    The thread views in this forums are usually quite low. Under 100
    and the average posts are per thread is probably under 10

    The people who frequent this forum are probably too bust to copy your idea, and anyone else is too lazy to even make a post. Let alone steal an idea and go off and develop a website.

    you're probably safe

    Just because someone else has a site, or starts one after you tell them, doesn't mean the site will be any good. I run a site that does the same thing as 100 other sites, but my site is thriving because I have more features, more attention to detail, and a better layout than any of the other sites. It's all in the design!

    what i think about has nothing to do with a regular site, i am thinking of sites people make here to make a quick buck, post it here and then a few oters make the same site
