Proposal: E-books and E-book Readers
Thankfully, the story doesn't end there. I have restarted the proposal (which you can view using the link above) and I am hoping that things will be different this time around. In just a few hours, we already have 5 followers and a bunch of good questions.
In order to ensure the success of this proposal, I need to make sure that:
The scope I have defined has the best chance at succeeding.
I basically copied the scope from the previous proposal without making a lot of changes - but if anyone can provide a legitimate reason for broadening the scope, I am willing to consider making changes.
The word gets out.
It almost goes without saying but if the proposal is going to make it past the definition stage (and especially the commitment phase) then the word needs to get out. I've begun promoting my new proposal on my social media accounts (where it makes sense, of course) and I'm hoping others follow suit. If anyone has suggestions for groups or websites that might be interested in participating, that would be awesome.
So basically that's where things are at with this proposal. I'm hoping we can demonstrate that an e-books site would have a large and dedicated following - and if anyone has further suggestions for making this a reality... don`t hesitate to mention them.
One week later: well, I'm happy to announce that we're nearing the halfway point of the definition phase. We have 30 followers and six questions with a score of 10 or more (and some more that are close). I tried to promote this proposal on the Kindle Forums, but received an error message saying something about purchasing a product from the Amazon store first.
So, if you haven't followed the proposal yet, please do so now. We need you. Also, please be sure to vote for the remaining questions so we can complete this stage and move on to the commitment stage.
