    I posted this on DP with less of a prize amount. And then I realized that, that wasn't the greatest move. BHW is a much more better option as I would get some quality entries.

    So here are the details :)

    I need an idea to base my next site off. However I am struggling to think of something great.

    So I thought I would come and give you guys the option to participate and help me out. For some cash of course

    I need a web 2.0 site idea. By web 2.0 I mean a site that is based around its users. ( It wouldn't work without users ) Social networking sites are an example.

    I want to target the Social niche if possible.But Im open to your suggestions.

    I want this idea to be unique. I don't want to clone any other site or do what others are doing. I am looking for something REALLY UNIQUE. ( One of a kind. )

    Think of new web technology. Something that would make you say "holy crap" when you saw it.

    I want an idea that is realistic. But I do realise that web 2.0 sites require a hell of a lot of investment. Which I am prepared to do. So your idea could be pretty far fetched.

    What will really boost your chances, is if the site could go Viral fast and easily.

    Please send me your ideas via PM ONLY. ( Don't want others to steal the idea )

    I will pay $100 via PayPal for the idea that I like best. And I will be basing my next site of this idea. I will only choose 1 and I have the right not to choose any if I don't like any. If you want I will send the money through PayPal's Personal send feature. That is if you are feeling skeptic about chargebacks.
    This contest will close in 3 days from the time of this post.

    You can submit any amount of ideas you want. But please keep it detailed. Give me a few lines about the idea itself, expanding on it if you can. And if you want to improve your chances then maybe explain some benefits and consequences about it.

    Also if you would like to work with me on it. I would be open to a partnership. Although my budget isn't the greatest atm. It will be increasing soon.

    Goodluck and Thanks

    PS: If you have any questions. Feel free to ask.

    Yep probably. If you give me an idea that I see a load of potential in. I will raise the prize reward.

    Thing is I need to keep quite a bit of money to pump into the site.

    Im also open to JV'ing on the site idea if the winner is interested. As then you can see your "baby" grow.

    Personally I would think. What the heck, if I can develop my own idea why I need that 100 bucks. I can easily make much much more than $100. So what if the idea is very good, will you still part with just $100 ??

    This kind of site requires an investment of at least $50,000. I don't think everyone has that kind of money to spend.
