An app to test the validity of an idea, while simultaneously acquiring alpha users (or pre-users) in the event that an idea is good. The pre-users will hopefully be tech enthusiasts or at least early adopters. Hopefully this will help people discover cool niche technology relevant to them, while helping entrepreneurs find product market fit.

@%%5101048368726016%% thanks for your feedback. There are a ton of features to be worked out and UI details to be changed and fixed and I value your opinion. I've also heard from many people that there isn't enough at stake to consider a "pre-user" an indicator of anything. I'm not sure I can say if that is or isn't true yet. I'm still testing my hypothesis. Once again, thanks for your feedback.

I'm happy my feedback was helpful. =)   A pre-user in the context of this application is too vague to indicate anything because, like the expression of an idea being too vague, there isn't any way to accurately quantify what/how/why those pre-users are interpreting pushing the "I would use this" button as meaning. On Kickstarter, when someone pledges $ it is extremely clear what that pledge means.  The action taken and the result of which is in no way vague. You're able to analyze that action in the proper context of the situation. Thus, one could draw accurate conclusions about the action taken by the user to do such.   In regards to pre-users, are they pushing that button to get updates/track the idea on here? to add their email to a mailing list? to enroll themselves into an early entry user program? they want commit to actually being willing to paying for said service/product right now and want a way to do it? etc etc Each of those could provide some level of validation of an idea...the least to the most as I listed the items off.   Even though the early items are kinda worthless because they require almost no risk, provide little to no benefits, and requires no commitment you can still gain some validation of assumptions there because you're framing things in a way that provides a lot more context.

This does nothing to validate an idea. People clicking "I would use this" is not validation of anything.  Especially, with the absolutely poor expressions of the ideas shared here. They are incredibly vague and left too open to individual interpretation based upon past experiences and existing biases.   The more vague something is the more an individual encountering the idea has to fill in the gaps with their own imagination. This is terrible because it removes the context from what the idea is supposed to be. You can't gain anything of value by looking at it out of context. Going back to validation, this is not validating anything. Those Pre Users are not actually pre-users. They are just some people that clicked a button without having to stop and think about the results of doing so. They aren't risking anything. They aren't gaining anything. They aren't committing to anything. That's not how you validate something. Kickstarter is how you would validate an idea. There, people have to take a risk, they are gaining a promise to receive a service/product, they are committing their money to the idea. This platform is horrible for validation. What it is good for is getting some feedback and, potentially, it could be used to network and help get some clues about potential target users. But, you need to re-think this. The user experience is a damn mess and you're attempting to mix in too many features and create false benefits. The user experience needs to be a team effort of every feature, every product, every service, every message, every layout, every UI, every aspect of the business outside of this application. As it stands now, most of those aspects are at odds with one another or performing in a manner that is lazy and unfocused.  I'm honest and brutal but, I am telling you how it is in hopes you'll listen and ask yourself a whole lot of questions to find your way with this.  I dig people wanting to help communities and people thrive. So, good on you for making the effort. But, it needs a whole lot of work. Look at Ideator.com.  Much better execution of a similar idea to this...one that falls more in line with what you've built rather than what your idea is telling us you set out to build. They too have a lot of work to do to get the UX dialed in.  But, it's much better and much more focused.
