After a brief discussion on the idea here and some more discussion in the chat, a few of us thought it would be great to have something similar to CP-GrowList available online. A few benefits would be that it would be available for your viewing/editing from anywhere an internet connection is available, easily sharing your grow list with people (if you so chose), and that it would all be held online, so you don't have to worry about losing it.
The problem: None of us, alone, are capable of such a task. We all (and I mean everyone here) have something we can contribute to such an undertaking, but it would have to be a community-driven project. I, personally, have way more webspace and bandwidth than I know what to do with along with unlimited SQL databases, so I'd be more than happy to host it. I can also do graphics work for it. But I'm not a coder by any means. The point is that we'd need people with experience in coding and managing databases to even stand a chance. If anyone's willing to help out, please let us know. So far, the list of interested potential volunteers seems to be me, Soopaman, Lucanidae, and callmemonkey.
This thread isn't so much a recruitment effort, however. This is more meant to get feedback from the community. What do you all think? Do you have ideas? One of the things we chatted about, briefly, was the ability to make it kind of a social thing, where you can openly share your list/database with other users and you can search, for example, "Drosera capensis" and it'll give you a list of other users growing the plant so you can see what theirs looks like. Maybe we can get in-depth with our information and even post the details on how we grow our plants, so it also becomes a sort of massive knowledge base, everyone contributing.
Thoughts? Good idea? Have we fallen out of our trees?
Please do share any ideas/criticism/random thoughts/etc you may have!
