Hi guys,

this i actually a pretty "serious" question, I just thought I'd put it in the Pit to get the most amount of answers

I'm about to start up a website as a school project, but I'm still in doubt about the subject of the website. So I just thought about maybe creating a website that's somehow about playing the guitar, like:

1. a website to find existing amateur bands or band members looking for a band in your region (and all over the world), and a wall to advertise upcoming gigs. (you would also be able to upload songs, advertise on the homepage, ... all for free)

2. a step-by-step website explaining the VERY basics about guitar playing, to get beginners going
3. a website where you can set "milestones" for yourself about playing the guitar and set a date as to when you want to achieve them, so you can track your progress.

These are just some of the ideas I had on this topic.

So my question to you : do you have any other (good) ideas for a website (whether or not it's about guitars) ?

Or maybe there's a website that you use regularly but you think it should be improved?

And what do you think of the 3 types of websites I described ?

Thanks already !

i think your second idea has already been done to death but would be quite easy (basic html, css etc)
the third idea seems a bit minimalistic and probably wouldnt be used unless you made it more general (not just about guitar playing)
the first idea is good, though if you plan to make it functional its going to require quite alot of work, (databases, php etc)

dont really have any ideas of my own, depends on how good you are at creating websites i suppose.

good luck!

Every option.

All of those have been done to death. Do a website about doing a website for a school project.

First thing I thought as well. It will be successful with more titties. Perhaps naked chicks playing guitar?

that's just like... your opinion man."

Well I am finishing my Bachelor degree in Online Media and PHP, MySQL, PHPMyAdmin, HTML, CSS, Javascript are courses I already took and passed.

So if I can get my hands on a good and solid idea, knowing there'd be a public for my website, I wouldn't mind putting in a lot of hours.

The first idea is the one I like best, it's really something amateur bands can use I think.
I would make it stand out from others, for exemple:

- a list of "Hottest New Bands" (on the front page)
- giving bands the opportunity to really show off, and get known
- an overview of upcoming amateur gigs in any given area of the world
- chance to post video's, songs, pictures, etc... of the band
- maybe get in touch with organisors of (small) events
- ...

(maybe I shouldn't have put this in the pit ... )

1 and 3 sound ok. The 3rd one might even work if you design it well.
I'm rooting for option number 3 as well.

Option three - but make it a 'life - goal' website: members can set themselves a challenge and then attempt to meet it, sharing success stories and pictures!

Time on earth is like butterscotch; you really want more, even though it will probably just make you ill.

Another idea of mine was some sort of gimmick website like http://sadtrombone.com/

Just a very simple website that can garanty some fun in the classroom ...

Any ideas guys ?
