Hi PH! ๐Ÿ‘‹ 18 year old maker here--I tend to work on a lot of different projects and ideas at once, and I rarely have a project that actually reaches completion. But where do those unfinished side projects go? Nowhere. They just sit on my desktop in various different unorganized sub-folders. Abandoned. A reason why most of my side projects get abandoned so early is because of lack of validation and/or motivation (and I'm sure a lot of you here can resonate with that feeling). All ideas, as crazy as they are, have some sort of potential. Ideas can turn into side projects, etc. Yet one thing I've realized is that there's really no organized service that's designed to allow you to share side projects and to garner feedback/support on them. So I built a platform that allows you to do just that, and I'm excited to finally launch it :).
@sakunacharige Looks great! When I click one of the projects, I get an error: "Not Found! We're sorry; whatever you were looking for isn't here.." Happens on all of them :/

@interestinsigh_ I think itโ€™s a browser issue. What browser are you using?
@sakunacharige I think you are right. I am using firefox, but when I use safari there is no problem.
Maker
@interestinsigh_ Figured, I'll look into it soon!
Very good idea !
Maker
@gibson_stk Thank you :)
Really loving this idea, it's really simple but works really well. The categories seem a little limited at the moment but that's my only complaint. Great job!
Maker
@keithin8a Thank you! Feel free to leave suggestions on what more categories you'd like to see and I can add them :)
@sakunacharige I think there's lots of categories that could be useful, but it will take time to figure out what they are. My app is travel related for example. Having an other category might be useful too because that could get you a list of people to ask what other categories would help.
Maker
@keithin8a Gotcha, just added a few more categories. Thanks!
This is awesome! Well done! Is this also a place to post ideas and get others to maybe contribute or find co-founders?
Maker
@tayler2412 Thank you :). And yeah, you're welcome to use it for that as well :)
Hah this is cool! I submitted one of my side projects, let's see how it goes. It's a free helper tool for the game Subnautica and I hope more fans will discover it and use it. Thanks for building this!
