Universians Feature Requests

What functionality do we want at online makerspace?

YAML Question Base Administration

0oo is transforming under "Universians" name to serve the first core audience of inventors and creative futurists weirdo makers.

This is a space to organise all suggestions for features that will enable inventors to live on ideas.


No child categories.


Must-Have homepage design:

Homepage that showcases a new behaviour HalfMakery is about (from research questions to a final product, so that inventors live on ideas).

Homepage for logged-in users showcases three columns:

  • Questions, Ideas, Projects, Products in the middle column,
  • User's P&L, My Projects, My Interests (meta-categories) on the left column,
  • Latest Comments and Results (only title) on the right column,
  • Top menu shows Questions, Ideas, Projects, Products; Languages; Logout.

This design is drawn here.


Community features:

  • Button "Open for collaborations" in Question, Idea and Project levels, to encourage strangers to help each other, to create ideas and prototype together. (I create ideas through conversations/synthesis).

Financial features:

  • "Donate" button within Project page to replicate Patreon functionality of allowing other users to donate money to each other.

  • Allow preorders of products, so that as a maker I don't need to setup Kickstarter.


Ownership features:

  • Enable to add custom idea types "Preview" (of invention). This would be useful for inventors who are about to prototype an invention, patent it and bring it to market.
