    Let's hear stories about fellow OT'ers and how they came up with their web ideas.

    I am trying to come up with some ideas for personal web project but can't seem to think outside the box.:hs:

    I come up with a bunch of ideas all the time, but actually programming + designing + advertising it takes too much of my time.

    Originally, it was to fill a gap I felt existed. You'll learn that the best ideas are an evolution of your original idea, so my advice would be to start with something you feel is missing or "unoptimal" in your life. Your idea will change along the way.

    OT needed a place for smilies, so I made a simple php script to list all the "custom" smilies. Once a lot of people started asking the link, over and over, I realized it was worthy of it's own domain.

    That's just one of my ideas.. others have been spinoffs of other sites, etc.

    I've always loved having my own image host - can always set my own limits on shit, allow people to use it, etc. Though they don't make me much money, I always have one up. :wiggle:

    OT gives me most of my ideas. One of my highest converting ideas actually came from OT...

    I agree.

    I liked jailbait pictures and so do many users on OT (even if they deny it). Almost a year ago I decided to create a simple and FREE jailbait gallery... now I'm getting 13,000,000+ pagevies a month and 9000+ uniques a day... have spent $0 and 0 seconds on advertising and revenues are going up each day thanks to a few fellow oters who gave me a few tips ;)

    I always thought adult webmasters made money easily, but this past months this site totally changed my opinion on the subject... :noes: You have to work to make some money... even if you have tons of traffic :wtc: This past month I've done hundreds of changes to the site relating to banner positioning, improving page loads, etc...

    I'm glad I do all my work (programming and design) cause I would've spent thousands if I had to pay for all the work I've done to the site...

    The funny part is that when I created the website, I never thought it would get this much traffic. In fact, I didn't even check on it for 2 months after I uploaded it... totally forgot about it. When I finally took a look at it, the first image had thousands of hits :eek3: I really don't know how that happened (probably word of mouth)... of course that's when I decided to start working on it... :mamoru:

    Well my newest site I was bored and thinking of something to do, so I was searching around godaddy. Thought of two popular forum abbreviations and put them together. It was available and in 1 week have had about 20k unique visitors already. It's a pretty common type site, so whether it goes anywhere is yet to be seen.

    I just developed something for my own use and when I showed some screenshots to some OTers about 2 years ago, they all expressed interest in the site too so I moved it from the localhost on my PC to the internetz and made it usable for many people.

    20 months later the site has over 15,200+ active users, is storing over 1,782,000 transactions and makes a couple hundred bucks a month on donations.

    Just a few emails from girls asking me to delete their pics and a cop asking me about a very popular series of pictures on the site via email... I think he knew them and was trying to find out if it was someone the girls knew who shared the pictures... :noes:

    I was taking a shit and came up with the idea for my forum lol

    Sportbike forums are all over the place, but I like small ones that people actually know and meet other members, kind of like the old OT. So, I created my own with friends.

    I have a site, I just came up with it because well its a Marvel Comics, Games, and Movies site.
    So since I wanted it to be a place where people can talk about stuff like that, and more, I called it TalkMarvel, so the link to it would be talkmarvel.com
    I actually like it, and it fits it well.

    Somewere in Central America :hsugh:

    Here is a sample of the emails I get on a daily basis:

    :mamoru:

    This cop could barely use his computer:

    I had to explain like 3 times to this guy how to copy and paste the URL of the images he wanted removed... :mamoru: Then:

    HIM: I can’t get the site to work.
    ME: The site works for me. Perhaps you have an adult content blocker?
    HIM: Perhaps. Thanks.

    30 minutes later he finally sent me the URLs... :mamoru:

    Another one:

    She was nice, I removed them right away...

    yea I make about 10 bucks a month (or did last month).... I got 4k uniques that month... I got 1k uniques already this month (march 3rd)

    Anyway, I saw a gap in the market for what i provide. hopefully I fill the void well.

    a) Go to techcrunch
    b) Wait for a "OMG OMG NEW SERVICE ENTERS BETA THAT NOONE EVER DID BEFORE"
    c) Copy idea by working your ass off as fast as possible
    d) Be one of the first competitors in the brand new market
    e) Spend as much money as you can on advertising.
