For the past few days, i’ve been adding to this list and digging up old ideas i’ve had.. hopefully they’ll inspire/help/motivate some of you guys and get those creative juices flowing Let me know what you think.. Some are a bit stupid, i’ll admit, but others a hidden gems
Update: In June 2009, i launched a new venture called iwantideas.com which offers more website ideas! In April 2010 i launched a new venture called technership.com which helps you find tech partners to help develop your tech ideas!
Social networking site which allows you to add your enemies, ex-girlfriends, companies, bands you hate, teams you hate to you profile.. The idea is that we find out who the most hated people are on the net and they get shamed with frontpage status..
I create a completely blank website with no content, no links, nothing on it. I then order reviews and pay for linkbacks to it and see how people react and if they accept/reject the review requests.. thus, i’ll find out who’s a money grabber and who actually cares about their readers, who they link to etc..
I buy a teddy, then post him to someone in a different country. That person then posts the teddy to another person in another country and so on.. all the time, the teddy is pictured at famous landmarks like the Eiffel Tower, Big Ben, Statue of Liberty etc.. and the pictures and blog entries from owners are put up on his website. He then becomes the most famous teddy on the world..
This is a community of do-gooders who can’t stand spam and scammers.. the Internet Pyranha community (name after the pyranha fish) target individual websites/email addresses one at a time and spam them with hate emails and stupid comments until they change their ways or get fed up of being spammed and take down the website.
De-pimp my ride
This is a community which specializes in de-pimping cars/bikes/buses and restoring them to their original state. Tutorials are given on how to take off all that extra plastic exterior and the go-faster stripes. The community also gathers videos/pictures of boy racers in their pimped out rides and tries to contact the owners and offer their knowledge/experience in how to de-pimp a car.
Social networking site which displays people’s arses and their friends arse’s. Also has a hotornot type rating feature and widgets which can be placed on your other social networking profiles.
Rate the Referee
Simple site which allows you to rate Referees for sports matches. Stats/Profiles are kept on the referee along with video’s and pictures of the referee in action. People can then rate the referee and see if he favours one side over another..
Site displaying every widget known to man and which one’s work well and which one’s don’t. Site offers thorough reviews of all widgets and allows users to rate and comment of their favourites.
Net Never Forgets
This site keeps a list of all known deaths i.e people who had myspace/bebo pages or blogs and passed away. A short profile of the person is displayed and it acts as a place for people to come and pay their respects by comments or video message etc… the idea being that their memory will always live on on the internet.
Heres what i think of you
Site which displays user submitted images of thousands of middle fingers making the shape of one big middle finger. Anytime anyone says something stupid on a forum or leaves a stupid comment somewhere, people link to ‘hereswhatithinkofyou’.
Off with your Head
This site displays a list of famous people. Users get to chop someone’s head off once a day (every 24 hours). This is basically if a celebrity does something stupid or a football manager is no good. The users get to decide who’s head is put on the chopping board. All chopped heads are the kept in the ‘already chopped’ section.
Rorrim (mirror spelt backwards)
This is a site which literally mirrors any text you have and want to disguise for some reason. You copy and paste it into an application and it will churn out the mirrored text, rendering it useless or double dutch to most people. It acts as a safety feature for valuable text files you may have.. When you need to read the text again, you simply return to the website and copy/paste the code back in and de-mirror it.
I dare you
This is a site which offers people the chance to make money. It displays a list of dares people have thought up of.. (e.g i dare you to run around a cinema naked). People then chip in money to the dare kitty and whoever takes on the dare gets the cash. Someone can reserve that bet and has 24 hours to complete it. They must then submit a video of themselves doing the bet and they will then get the money.
A global community of energetically challenged (a.k.a lazy) people who demand that ‘lazy’ be removed from the english language and replaced with the more politically correct ‘energetically challenged’. The site starts a potention and gets members to sign it, then sends it off to the relevant bodies..
Hot, now you’re not
A website which displays a list of things/people which were hot once upon a time, but aren’t anymore. Targetting older women/men who’ve ‘lost it’ in terms of sex appeal. Also targets sports people and bands who’ve passed their sell by dates but are still playing and websites which were once cool, but aren’t anymore. Digg like feature which allows members to rate who’s not hot.
Site which displays a list of charities and beggars on the streets, their known collecting locations/times and generally known hot spots where they deploy people on the streets looking for sign ups or spare change.. Also displays begging scandals such as illegal begging at ATM machines, ticket machines etc..
Update: I actually brought this idea to life in april 2009, www.charitybypass.com is now live!
Brat Zone Alert
A website which displays a list of known hotels/apartments/housing estates/streets often full of kids. Also displays if the kids are attended or unattended and their age group. This is to let people know what they’re in for when they book a hotel or buy/rent a house/go visiting a city etc.
Users submit videos/images of ridiculous traffic jams/queues/congestion they get caught up in.. the site acts a place for those people to vent their anger and also as a warning for other people not to go near that particular airport/road/shop etc..
