Getting advice on getting my project off the ground.

    Hi, everybody:

    I wonder if this is a good forum for advice on how to get a money-making website project off the ground, dealing with issues a coder like me is not so familiar with. Things like which service can collect donations for me without endangering me, how best to measure size and growth of the user base, whether to manage user data best with a CMS or database-API or some own code for server-or-cookie storage, etc.

    My current project has 7 issues to deal with right now. Should I post it as one post introducing these issues as one-liners or spread it out as different posts on an issue-by-issue basis in different forums on this site here?

    It would seem sensible to me to have one general thread introducing (and possibly discussing) this one project on a top view level and maybe sometimes branch off to separate threads that dig deep into one issue. Would that approach fit this community?

    In the time it took to review the entire post asking about asking questions, you could have just asked the questions.

    If they're vastly different questions, just prioritize them and separate them out into different topics. You'll get better responses going to the niche category than just plopping all your questions in a general area.

    Thanks for the reply. I am new here and trying to orient myself. It seems worthwhile to me to have a thread that deals with the entire project since experienced startup creators may point me to fitting specific forums for particular details or point out issues I have so far overlooked. I was unsure if such a broadly defined thread or post would be acceptable.

    Another question: How can I attach a LIKE to your comment? (I see no LIKE button)

    You need to be an established member (you yourself have to have 3 likes from 3 different members).

    Thanks, qwikad. I suspected something like that. It's good to have it confirmed. :)

    Do you still want help with your original issue?

    Keeping the questions about one project in a single thread is much cleaner, and helpful for those wanting to respond.

    Well, replies to my original question on whether I can have a thread on this platform dedicated to a project or whether I must separate its various questions out into different threads from the get-go have been answered approving of both approaches. So, both seem to be acceptable here, and how things work out may be unpredictable. I have created a project thread, and I may find it necessary or worthwhile to create dedicated threads for some specific questions that the project thread is overwhelmed or under-responded with.


    Thanks. :)

    I thought so, too, and therefore created a thread for my project: How to get my project off the ground? (a gamified study site)

    Thanks. :)
